Sonic leapt off the board and let a loose series of homing attacks. They all hit, but the few changelings he did take out were just replaced by some other changeling in their army. Sonic processed to boost into the army, but changelings just kept coming.
“Does Anypony else have an idea?” Twilight asked when Sonic joined our huddle in the center of the circle of changelings.
“Maybe we could use the elements of harmony.” I suggested.
We went through the motions. We channeled energy into the elements, which then shot a rainbow at Chrysalis. Though she did take some damage, she just got back up.
“Hah! Is that all you’ve got?” She taunted.
The changelings were getting ready to attack.
“Girls, I think I have an idea.” Sonic whispered.
“Let’s hear it.” Applejack said.
“Channel as much energy from the elements as you can into me.” He demanded.
“What good will that do?” Rarity asked.
“Trust me on this one.”
We played along. Wisps of golden energy flowed to Sonic. Sonic had his eyes closed, letting the energy build up inside of him. Eventually, he started floating! The hedgehog curled his arms and legs in towards his torso. Then, something incredible happened. His eyes opened but instead of their regular green color they were a brilliant shade of red. Sonic shot his arms out and a flash of light covered the city, as he yelled “SUPER SONIC!” After the flash, where Sonic once floated was a yellow hedgehog with is quills flowing upwards, and a yellow aura around him.
Everypony, even Chrysalis was visibly in shock.
“S-S-Sonic?” I stuttered.
“The one and only.” He announced.
Sonic stretched his arms out, and I felt tons of energy flow through my body. I closed my eyes and felt it burning in my stomach. The energy was swelling until I had to release it. My eyes flew open and a huge flash engulfed all six ponies. Around me the other five were going through the same thing. We each compulsively announced our super forms.
My cyan fur turned golden, and my mane flowed like princes Celestia’s. The same could be said about my friends, but we were all slightly different shades of gold. Fluttershy had a group of birds surrounding her. They were all flying!
“So what, you changed the color of your coat.” Chrysalis had a façade of confidence.
“Ha!” Sonic laughed. “I wouldn’t be so sure! You see when we go into our super forms our natural abilities are increased, meaning that you outta luck.”
Sonic charged the mob. I followed soon afterwards. ‘If they want a fight, that’s what they’ll get!’ I thought. Everypony went in to the fray after me.
Twilight used her now insanely powerful magic to blast down hoards of the freaks, which tried to emulate us but to no avail. (They didn’t have the elements) Arcane beams covered in flames flashed in front of her. Thunder and lightning raged from her horn leaving heaps of unconscious changelings on the hard pavement. Her energy seemed to never run out.
Pinkie just darted around stomping on the false ponies. She was already a dynamo without the energy Sonic shared, but with that energy she was almost scary. (But I guess we all were)
Applejack was furiously bucking away at the clones. Her hooves moved like lightning. Every changeling in her reach was sent tumbling through the air into others.
How Fluttershy fought was probably most interesting of all. She could bash the changelings as well, but the birds or “Flickies” as Sonic calls them rammed into the changelings in the mob, savagely pecking until their targets were subdued. Sonic says Tails’ super form is similar, but I haven’t seen it yet.
As for Rarity’s attack strategy, she was able to pick up and throw objects and dazed changelings with incredible strength and accuracy.
“Reminds me of Silver, I wonder what he’s up to.” I heard Sonic mutter.
Another one of the many similarities between Sonic and I was our fighting style. We both barreled into our foes. Sonic booms/sonic rainbooms were easy to accomplish. Ribbons of blue and rainbows covered the plaza we were fighting in.
In a matter of two minutes the only things standing, or floating rather, were us seven and Chrysalis.
My friends were panting franticly. They couldn’t hold on to their super forms for much longer and I wasn’t feeling too great either.
“Rainbow, Mirror what I do from below me.” Sonic whispered.
He charged Chrysalis and I was a yard or two under him. Chrysalis charged at us. While we gained speed, we began rotating, round, and round, and round. Eventually, a giant ball of energy built up between us. Once Chrysalis saw it she tried to pull back, but it was too late. With all our might we rammed the ball into her and she fell to the ground. ‘I can’t let everypony down. Just a few more seconds.’ Was all I could think during this.
Once Sonic and I landed everypony was panting, me especially so. That last attack took a lot of energy out of me.
“I’ll be back!” Chrysalis’ voice rang.
We regressed into our normal states after she left. Sonic was the only one who didn’t look winded, probably because he was obviously used to it. I almost fell over, thankfully Sonic caught me.
“You okay?” He asked.
“I’ll be alright.” I weakly stated as, I used my wing to brace myself around Sonic’s leg. He didn’t seem to mind.
“Man, you guys took your first time going super better than most people do!” He admired. “You five should be how Rainbow is, and Dash should be passed out!”
“Thanks, Sonic!” Twilight tried to sound enthusiastic despite how tiered she was.
“Well, I guess were off to find the last emerald!” Pinkie bounce, somehow her energy had returned.
“You girls need some rest,” Sonic reminded. “Let’s get our strength back for an hour or to then we’re off.”
“Okay.” Everypony agreed.
