Highest summit

Where is it said that Mt. Mobius is the highest summit on the planet? It isn't mentioned in the prologues from the manuals. --Pecky (talk) 09:01, 7 March 2020 (EST)

Truth be told, I was skeptical about that myself, and looking into the Japanese prologue further there isn't much of a mention either. Out it goes for the time being. --BSonirachi (talk) 13:12, 7 March 2020 (EST)
I think it's described as the highest mountain in AoStH. That said, I haven't watched it since 1993, so I might be remembering wrong. - Hivebrain (talk) 16:37, 7 March 2020 (EST)
There's a transcript of the "Big Daddy" episode on the Sonic News Network wiki. It's implied to be the tallest mountain, and it's depicted as cartoonishly huge in Robotnik's video, but it's never outright stated. I think it might be a bit of a "Beam me up, Scotty" - one of those things that feels like it should be true, but was never actually said. Here's the relevant part:
Robotnik: Mount Mobius. No one's ever climbed it, until now. My Gorilla Grandé will climb to the top and install the most powerful laser cannon ever built!
[A simulation of Big Daddy, who is now holding a laser cannon in his right hand, climbing Mount Mobius is shown on the screen.]
Robotnik: From that spot, it will be capable of blasting any city on the planet! --Pecky (talk) 17:03, 7 March 2020 (EST)
