url8 Posted July 29, 2021 Report Share Posted July 29, 2021 (edited) The Sonic the Hedgehog timeline was the only one I actually figured out for myself. The Sonic timeline isn't actually straightford, a lot of games raised a lot of questions as to when they take place. There usually isn't a lot of evidence to suggest as to when exactly these games happen, so there will be a lot of speculation. If there were a lot of evidence, then there would've been an official timeline, amd this post wouldn't exist. First, I would actually state this before diving head-first into the timeline, there are two Sonic universes in the games, one populated by humans that are human ("normal world", with Earth), and one popupated by anthropomorphic animals instead of humans (Sol Dimension, with Mobius), these two universes do end up crossing paths a few times in the timeline. Both universes have some similarities, I will point those out as we go down the timelines. They eventually merge, and unite together into one timeline. Now, let's start with an event consistent across both timelines. The Disaster with Perfect Chaos. In Sonic Adventure, we learn that Pachacamac wants to seize the 7 Emeralds so he and the rest of the Echidna Tribe can gain power to conquer more territories. Tikal tries to stop him, but she is then run over by the Echidna Tribe. Chaos comes out, and turns into Perfect Chaos for the first time to destroy the Echidna Tribe, and the rest of the world. Tikal stops Perfect Chaos's rampage by sealing herself and Chaos inside the Master Emerald. All that is canon, the rest of this paragraph is basically speculation from here on out, although it is supported by some evidence from games like Sonic 2 (16-bit) and Sonic 3D Blast as well as a big portion of the community. The result of sealing Chaos inside the Master Emerald caused a lot of the surrounding land to rise up into the sky, creating Angel Island. A few more islands were created when Angel Island was basically ripped from the mainland, South Island, Westside Island, and Flickies' Island. After a lot of time, the islands drifted further away from mainland, and most of Atlantis sunk, creating ruins such as Labyrinth Zone, Aqua Lake Zone, Aqua Planet Zone, Labyrinth of the Castle, Aquatic Ruin Zone, and Regal Ruin. One of the Chaos Emeralds are sealed away inside of Westside Island, so if anyone were to hunt for the Emeralds, they won't get the ultimate power unless they somehow find a way to crack the seal to enter the Special Stage, and then collect enough rings. Only then will that 7th Emerald be awarded to the Emerald hunter, which eventually happens in both universes. That was a lot. Like I said, there is surprisingly a lot when it comes to Sonic. Up next, I will put the events of the Sol Dimension in order, as well as explain the crossovers between the universes when they happen.
