“Aren’t these the things that you couldn’t destroy?!” I panicked.
“Yeah.” Sonic confirmed.
“Maybe the elements will work.” Twilight suggested.
We tried to use the power of the elements. Same process as before, but the rainbow we fired was a lot smaller and weaker. The robots only staggered.
“What happened?” AJ was confused.
“Perhaps we over used them.” Rarity suggested.
“We need to do something!” I yelled.
Twilight responded with a blast of magic. The robot just took the blast and continued marching towards us.
“Can’t the princesses help?” Sonic mentioned.
Our faces turned to the castle. Surrounding it was a group of about 20 other overgrown eggpawns. Around us, everypony was in a panic .Sonic grunted as he looked around. His eyes landed on an antique store. Then he smirked.
“Girls, help everypony get to safety!” He commanded.
“Okay!” Pinkie said with her trademark enthusiasm.
“What will you do?” I asked.
“Let’s just say, it’s time for the knight of the wind to make a comeback!” With that he darted into the store. Seconds later, he ran out with a sword in hand. Its blade was a shiny black, and the hilt was white with gems in it.
“It’s no Caliburn, but it’ll do.” He thought aloud.
He ran straight at the overgrown eggpawn. With a quick move of his arm his sword tore through the robots thick metal. The robot collapsed, and turned to scrap.
His fighting style was about the same but he was slashing his sword about as well as ramming into things. Often he’d jump into the air and curl into a ball, with his blade spinning round and round. With every slash he hopped into the air. Homing attacks were used to bridge gaps between himself and his foes.
Sonic moved from eggpawn to eggpawn, as we helped some ponies evacuate. Sonic was fairly good with that sword. He was better than most ponies could be, but I assume hands help. Even so, the “knight of the wind” started to struggle once the other robots started to team up on him.
“Go help him.” Twilight suggested.
“You sure you don’t need my help?” I asked.
“We’ll be fine,” Pinkie chimed in.
“Besides you’re the only one ‘ere who can keep up with ‘im.” AJ said.
“Got it!” I saluted, and then darted to Sonic.
“HEY! OVER HERE!” I yelled to the metallic giants, as I hovered in front of them.
They turned to me and started to swing there hammers. I managed to zip between the strikes, but the distance between me and their tools kept getting smaller. Sonic was working his way towards me. After another dodge, I saw Sonic with knees bent and a magical ring around him. After that he let lose a powerful and precise slash. Unfortunately, that distracted me for long enough that the eggpawn had time to hit me. I expected it to hurt, but I only felt some pressure and a ring blasted out of me! I was falling down and couldn’t recover though.
Sonic slashed through the eggpawn that hit me, and then went into a slide. He dropped his sword, and caught me in his arms.
“You alright?” He asked when we stopped.
“Yeah. Thank Celestia for those rings!”
All of the eggpawns were cleared out.
“So is it over?” Rarity came up, along with the rest of our friends.
“Not quite!” A voice familiar to Sonic and I said.
