Knuckles the Echidna #9 is the ninth issue of the Knuckles the Echidna comic.

This comic features one story: "Twilight of the Titans", the third part of the Dark Vengeance arc.

Dark Vengeance - Twilight of the Titans

Continued from issue 8.

As the Dark Legion prepares to move out, they are visited by Enerjak, who declares that Knuckles is no more. Enerjak offers the Dark Legion a bridge directly connecting Sandopolis Zone to the object of their conquest, Echidnaopolis. The Dark Legion departs, leaving the Chaotix to suffer a torturous death tied up in the desert. Elsewhere, Knuckles is reintegrated by the intervention of Athair and the Ancient Walkers. They swiftly teleport Knuckles to Sandopolis to rescue the beleaguered Chaotix, Archimedes, and Deo Volente.

The Dark Legion takes Enerjak's bridge and commences its attack on Echidnaopolis. Constable Remington reluctantly propositions General Stryker to join forces to repel the oncoming assault. Despite their combined firepower, the echidna and dingo defenders find their weapons are ineffective against the power that Enerjak wields. In the midst of his gloating, Enerjak disappears. Julie-Su takes the opportunity to defect by purposely crashing her transport pod, still carrying Kragok, into the street and flees.

High above Echidnaopolis, Enerjak reappears before Mammoth Mogul. The vexed Enerjak attempts to strike down Mogul, but to no avail. Instead, Mogul saps Enerjak of all his power via the Sword of Acorns. The listless Enerjak plummets to the ground, but Knuckles sweeps in to rescue him before he makes impact. Now with the presence of Knuckles and the Chaotix, Remington's troopers and Stryker's soldiers are able to reverse the battle in their favor. Locke, watching from afar in Haven, decides to radio Sonic the Hedgehog and the other Knothole Village Freedom Fighters to provide Knuckles with assistance. Sabre is alarmed at the thought of revealing Haven to outsiders, but Locke assures him that he will scramble the signals to appear like Knuckles when he sends the communiqué.

The Dark Legion begins a disorderly retreat. Remington alerts Knuckles that the EST has detained both Kragok and Julie-Su and will hold them for interrogation. When the Freedom Fighters arrive and announce they came at Knuckles' insistence, Knuckles is perplexed. Before he can ask questions, however, Mammoth Mogul descends to teleport Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles away and to declare his intent to rule over everyone.

Continued in issue 56 of Sonic the Hedgehog.
