Tomorrow's the big opening day for Carnival Island, a huge resort with the latest in high-tech rides and games. As guardian of the island, it's Knuckles' job to make sure nothing goes wrong before the grand event.

Unfortunately, the evil Dr. Robotnik has other plans. he needs fuel for his latest diabolical devices, and the Power Emerald that supplies electricity to the entire island fits the bill perfectly. His awful new invention, the Combi Confiner, should help him get rid of that annoying echidna and his friends.

When Knuckles returns from patrolling the far end of the island, he discovers that Dr. Robotnik has imporsed all of his friends—Espio the Chameleon, Mighty the Armadillo, Vector the Crocodile and Charmy Bee. After he chases the Doctor off, Knuckles discovers that he can resuce one friend at a time by using Ring Power...only the power that sparks between the Rings hold the two partners together like a magical rubber band. Never held back for long, Knuckles finds that with a little teamwork, he can use the stretching and snapping action of the Ring Power to double—even triple—the partners' speed.

And they need all the speed they can get. As Dr. Robotnik drains the power from Carnival Island, everything on the island begins to break down. Robotnik must be stopped, or by tomorrow morning—the morning of Carnival Island's big opening day—the grand amusement park will lie in ruins!

(This is the story listed in the Japanese manual for Chaotix. Translation by Windii.)

A certain floating island somewhere in the world. Several months have passed since the island grazed the sea surface due to an accident that happened on it.
However, there is a surge of activity deep in the seabed of the southern seas, which caused one island to suddenly appear out of it. This was the resulting aftermath of increased motion in the earth's crust stimulated by the power of the Master Emerald "pillar" on the floating island. Furthermore, the island was changing its appearance in a very short time at a tremendous speed.
The energy of the "pillar" transformed the island from a mere mass of rock into a green paradise.

"There's gotta be something on that island..."
Knuckle, the guardian of the Master Emerald "pillar", is questioning the island's sudden and ever-ongoing transformations.
Could it be that the remnants of the legendary civilization that was destroyed in an instant in the remote past due to the "power stone" going awry, lay dormant on that island?

"Something must be amplifying the power of the "pillar.""
With that thought and a sense of responsibility in mind, Knuckle headed straight to that island alone.

However, he was not the only one that thought so.
The very same thought had occurred to the highly infamous genius scientist, Dr. Eggman, who was already there investigating the island.
There, Eggman found a small ring engraved with ancient characters. And he learned that the very island was a part of the lost civilization.
In addition, he discovered a Super Ring identical to the one on the floating island. It was an ancient Special Ring that was used by the legendary civilization before it was lost.

"With this, I can reach the Master Emerald once again!"
Eggman was amazed by the discovery, but the "power stone" which the Special Ring was supposed to lead to was already transferred to the floating island by the gods that flew down from the sky.

However, the mysterious dimensional space created by the special ring was filled up with the "pillar" energy and turned into a ring-shaped crystal substance called the "Chaos Ring".
"If I uncover the secret of this Special Ring, I'll be able to summon the Master Emerald, not to mention find the secret of the rings that Sonic and his gang has!"
With that thought in mind, Eggman hurriedly builds a fortress on the island. The resort spot that was named "Newtrogic High Zone" was aswirl with Eggman's horrific plan.

And when Knuckle arrived near the island, it was already too late. Eggman had succeeded in crystallizing the energy. He named the artificial ring the Dark Ring. Furthermore, he was developing the Ring Power that produces space-time connections between rings.
"As long as I have this, they'll be able to do nothing. No one will be able to get in my way! This time, the whole world will be mine!"
Eggman was well on his way to realizing his ambitions.

Original Japanese Text

世界のどこかにある浮遊島。この島がある事件によって海面をかすめてから数か月がたっていました。
ところが、南海の海底深くで隆起活動が起こり、1つの島が忽然と姿を見せました。それは浮遊島にあるマスターエメラルド”ピラー”の力により、地殻運動が活発化した結果の産物でした。さらにその島はほんの少しの間に、ものすごいスピードでその容姿を変えつつありました。
”ピラー”のエネルギーが、単なる岩の固まりだった島を緑の楽園に変化させていたのです。

「あの地には何かある…」
マスターエメラルド”ピラー”の守護者であるナックルは、途切れることなく続く島の急激な変化に疑問を抱きます。
遠い昔、”力の石”の暴走により、一瞬にして消滅したという伝説の文明の名残が、その島に眠っているのでしょうか。
「何かが”ピラー”の力を増幅させているに違いない」
そう考えたナックルは守護者としての責任感を胸に、単身その島へと向かったのです。

しかし、そう考えていたのは彼1人ではありませんでした。
あの悪名高き天才科学者Dr.エッグマンもその1人で、すでに島へと調査に乗り込んでいたのです。
そこでエッグマンは、古代文字が彫られた小さなリングを発見。まさにその島は、失われた文明の一部だったということがわかったのです。
さらに、浮遊島にあったスーパーリングと瓜2つのものを発見します。それは伝説の文明が失われる前に使われていた、太古のスペシャルリングだったのです。

「これで再びマスターエメラルドにたどり着ける!」
その発見に驚喜するエッグマンでしたが、そのスペシャルリングが導いていたはずの”力の石”は、天空から舞い降りた神々によってすでに浮遊島に移されていたのでした。

しかし、スペシャルリングの作り出す不思議な空間には、”ピラー”エネルギーが充満し、「カオスリング」というリング状の結晶体と化していました。
「このスペシャルリングの秘密を探れば、ソニックたちの持つリングの秘密はおろか、マスターエメラルドを呼び寄せることもできる!」
そう考えたエッグマンは、急遽その島に要塞を築き上げてしまいます。「ニュートロジックハイゾーン」と名付けられたそのリゾート地には、エッグマンの恐ろしい計画が渦巻いているのでした。

そしてナックルが島の近くに着いたとき、すべては手遅れの状態となっていたのです。エッグマンはエネルギーの結晶化に成功。その人造リングを「ダークリング」と命名。さらには、リング同士で時空のつながりを発生させる「リングパワー」の開発をしていたのです。
「これさえあれば、もう手も足も出せまい。余計な邪魔をされずにすむはずじゃ!今度こそ、全世界をワシのものにするのじゃ~!」
着々とエッグマンの野望は実現しつつありました。
