Sonic the Hedgehog Free Comic Book Day 2011 is the fifth FCBD issue of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series by Archie Comics.

The issue contains only one story, Rematch, which is a partial remake (or re-imagining) of Naugus Games that officially replaces or retcons the events of the story due to its infamously poor quality artwork.



Continued from issue 224.

Eggman has returned and launched his newest creation, The Death Egg Mark II, and it is getting higher and higher in the sky. Meanwhile, Sonic and Naugus are on the ground as Sonic reflects on recent events and remembers the last time he saw Naugus.

Continued from issue 71.

The story then flashbacks to Sonic running through the Southern Tundra as he approaches the ruins of Nate Morgan's Castle. He slides to a stop to pay his respect to Eddy and his sacrifice with flowers. After placing the flowers, the snow below him falls a few meters down, leading him to a cave full of Rings from his previous fight with Naugus.

Sonic tries to attack him but his coat is caught on some rocks, alerting Naugus, and he freezes Sonic's legs. Sonic asks how Naugus escaped from the Zone Of Silence and Naugus tells him that he had some power leftover and tore a hole back to Mobius and will fuse it with the Zone Of Silence. Sonic retorts that he refuses to let this happen and he spins his legs free and starts to attack Naugus while he fights back with an ice ball that follows Sonic.

Sonic (with a bit of maneuvering) manages to freeze Naugus but as he's a commander of elements, he commands fire, which melts the ice. Sonic thinks of using the Power Rings but realizes that Naugus would do the same and gets hit and buried under rocks, which also traps him with the Power Ring stash. Sonic then transforms into Ultra Sonic and creates a hole back to the Zone Of Silence, while Naugus disappears.

Continued in issue 72.

(In the present) Sonic then tells Naugus that he was right, and unfortunately for them both, so was Eggman.

Continued in issue 225.
