The Black Trap is the 15th episode in the second season, and the 67th overall episode of Sonic X. In the English dub, it is known as Teasing Time.
The Metarex assault the Blue Typhoon in many small attacks over a period of twelve hours. Their true goal is to guide the Blue Typhoon towards Black Narcissus, who has been wanting an opponent more challenging than the many planets he has easily conquered. The Blue Typhoon arrives at a small planet that has been completely bombarded by the Metarex, and their sensors detect five hundred fake Chaos Emeralds on it. When Black Narcissus sends them an invitation, Cosmo is able to read it for her friends, but she conceals the P.S. at the end, in which he promises to tell Cosmo about what happened between her people and the Metarex...if she arrives at his base alone.
Cosmo falls for the trap, but Chris stows away with her and tries to bring her back. Black Narcissus captures both of them and traps them in a capsule, seriously injuring them in the process. Sonic blasts into the base with the Sonic Driver and notes that the fake Emeralds feel very wrong. When Black Narcissus presents him with his hostages, and opponents designed to test his abilities, Sonic uses the fake emeralds to transform into Dark Super Sonic and trash the opponents easily. As Sonic is about to deal out more destruction, Dr. Eggman arrives and tells Sonic not to let anger overwhelm him. Sonic returns to normal as Shadow rescues Cosmo and Chris, and Rouge destroys the Emerald-making machine. Even Decoe, Bocoe, and Bokkun deal Black Narcissus some serious punches, allowing everyone to leave peacefully.
