Zone description : The ancient temple of the extinct Knuckles Clan, Lost World is an underground and above-ground sections of a huge temple, located mainly under the altar pyramid in the center of Mystic Ruins. Once upon a time, it was around this pyramid that the Knuckles Clan settlement was located, from where the echidna members of the clan raided other peoples and settlements. The interior of Lost World is a dark temple corridors filled with a huge number of traps and riddles. Also, some of Eggman’s robots managed to find an entrance here during his takeover of the Mystic Ruins. In the depths of the temple there is a message for all those who once again wish to wander into the power of Chaos, an ancient mural that reveals the terrible secret of the Knuckles Clan’s demise. Alas, only the most nimble heroes will be able to see this message by traversing the temple’s tangled, death-trap-filled mazes.

The much-grown Sonic faces a new threat: the mighty Chaos monster. Dr. Robotnik frees this monster from Master Emerald by destroying it (which causes the fall of the Angel Island with the Ice Cap on it) with the hope that Chaos will help him build his empire. Chaos can absorb Chaos Emeralds and become stronger, so Sonic teamed up with Tails and after giving Robotnik the nickname Eggman, sets out in search of Emeralds. In the process, the heroes are contacted by a mysterious red spirit, apparently trying to help in the fight against Chaos. In particular, the red spirit leads Sonic to the center of Lost World, where it shows the hedgehog an ancient mural warning of the power of Chaos. In addition, at Lost World, Knuckles also searches for parts of the shattered Master Emerald.
In the end, Chaos manages to absorb all the Chaos Emeralds and becomes Perfect Chaos, flooding all of Station Square. The red spirit that has been with the heroes all along materializes next to Sonic, turning out to be a girl who lived many years ago named Tikal. Tikal was a friend of Chaos, but she saw no other way but to re-seal Chaos into Master Emerald forever. Sonic flatly refuses this option and believes that this approach won’t solve the problem because Chaos’s hatred won’t go anywhere. By using the positive power of the Chaos Emeralds Sonic becomes Super Sonic and defeats Perfect Chaos in battle. The weakened Chaos speaks to Tikal, and she manages to extinguish the pain and rage of the distraught monster. After thanking the heroes, Tikal and Chaos return to Master Emerald and Sonic doesn’t stop on his adventure. Angel Island, on it’s part, returns to the sky again.
