And just think, this is apparently the canonical encounter. This is how this fight went down in the new canon. Also, why the hell is there only one Super Emerald shrine? EDIT: Also also, he introduces himself... why? We know Knuckles from the start already, are the saying this was literally their first meeting, and not when he clocked Sonic at the start of Sonic the Hedgehog 3, or any of the half dozen times they meet between these points?
