The JP Sonic 2 Mega Drive manual tells of how Tails first met Sonic on West Side Island, so the 8-bit Sonic 2 can't really be set before it.

How does that go, so I can adjust things accordingly, please and thank you.

To be really honest I think we should settle on placing the solid sequences before trying to fit in Sonic the Fighters, Chaotix &c as their placement could happen everywhere after Sonic 2 as they didn't have their storylines referenced.

Tails’ Sky Patrol isn't a prequel. The Japanese Sonic Labyrinth and Tails’ Sky Patrol manuals strongly imply that they happen around the same time.

The JP Sonic 2 Mega Drive manual tells of how Tails first met Sonic on West Side Island, so the 8-bit Sonic 2 can't really be set before it.


I explicitly said in my post that I don't really give a shit about what the manuals say.

Sonic Rivals has to be canon, since it explains how Sonic and Silver came to know each other after the events of Sonic 2006 were reset.


Fair enough.

In the case of Sonic the Fighters, it clearly takes place before Sonic Adventure as Amy has her hammer.

Edit: Nevermind the Chaotix bit, my memory failed. Still Robotnik knows about the Master Emerald ergo it must take place after Sonic 3 & K.

Isn't Tails Adventure set before Tails met Sonic, or am I remembering wrong ?


The Japanese manual says "This is a story from before Tails met Sonic...", the American manual says "Sonic and Tails have temporarily parted for a little vacation time". http://info.sonicret...entures_manuals

Tails' Sky Patrol seems to happen around the same time as Sonic Labyrinth.

Tails' Sky Patrol:

Everybody will sometimes want to go on a self-interested journey alone...

One day, Tails went out on a trip by spinning his two proud tails.
It's not like he had a fight with Sonic or anything.

Sonic Labyrinth:

On that day, Sonic woke up in the afternoon. Tails has gone out who knows how many days ago, saying something about a self-interested journey.
"Sometimes it's okay to be all on your own, too."

It's really quite interesting. The basic gist is that Sonic was taking a short vacation on West Side Island, Tails thought Sonic was cool and started following him around, Sonic let him be, but didn't really acknowledge him. Then Eggman started causing trouble, Sonic went to stop him and Tails followed. So the premise is that at the start of the game, in Emerald Hill Zone Act 1, Sonic and Tails aren't friends yet, haven't even spoken to each other.

Then Sonic 3 & Knuckles takes place several days after Sonic 2.

So, Sonic 2 is Tails' first adventure with Sonic and S3&K is his second.

Thank you kindly. I'll have to adjust my classic timeline, then, since I have them meet on South Island on its journey to Westside Island.
