Was Chaos supposed to be working for Eggman in Battle?

Nope. Chaos sensed a potential danger coming (from the Death Egg) and returned to guard the shrine from threats.

Okay, cause I know while the FTCR stream of it didn't have them fight Chaos in the story, the weird ice crater thing he apparently comes from was mighty close to the Death Egg. And I seem to recall Knuckles' explanation being a little vague, for some reason?

Well the Death Egg was in space, Chaos was at the Emerald Altar, which had a wee frozen bit near it. Knuckles said the same kind of thing I said. Played the game for years, one of my favourites.

Oh, well tehn, I meant whatever they used to get up there.

But okay, thanks for the clarification!

There was a casting site that listed Pete Capella as preparing to reprise his role in a Sonic product that obviously never saw the light of day not long after 06. Does anyone have any idea what this was?

Both Knuckles and Zavok have been purported as being skilled martial artists, yet both primarily utilize their large fists in combat. Is there a particular style or form(s) that they could be using?

Does anyone mind explaining the cultural context of what the heck this stuff is?

Wallpaper 141 wave 03 pc

 

 

Where do these images come from? I've seen several others done in the same style, like one with Blaze sitting on a park bench during Autumn. They are gorgeous.

I've no answer to your question I'm afraid, but I'd love to know to know more too.

They're Sonic Channel wallpaper images from years gone, back when they did the more contextual art. I can answer some of the references.

Amy and Cream - A Japanese holiday called Girls' Day (Hinamatsuri). Also called Dolls Day, hence the figure Amy has.

Silver - A Japanese holiday called Star Festival (Tanabata). What Silver is on is a wishing tree, which is a central component of the custom. 

Vector - A Japanese holiday called Setsubun (oh wait no English name). A festival done to see in the new year, what Vector is doing represents the custom of the head of the household throwing rice on the doorstep to ward away demons.

Oh, okay. I thought it had something to do with Chinese New Year and I vaguely recall seeing the wishing tree & rice throwing in something now that you mention it. The girls/doll thing is out of left field, though.

Otherwise, all I knew was Japanese Holiday Stuff. Thanks!

To elaborate a little further on some of the others Knuckles is playing a traditional Taiko (Japanese for drum but used by foreigners to refer to certain types of traditional Japanese drums and performances) while Blaze is simply partaking of fire crackers while wearing a yukata (a summer kimono) which is very traditional Japanese imagery with summer. Wave on the hand I don't remember what it is exactly she's partaking in but both what she is holding and the coat she is wearing are a part of it as I remember but unfortunately that's about where my memory fails me.

While we await for the next [big?] mainline game and it's story, I suppose an interesting question would be what type of new villain/character should follow up Infinite? Should it be an antithesis or something else entirely? And what could that be like?

Considering Infinite was the antithesis of several recent villains... 

 

I really wonder how the antithesis deal would work, yet keeping them a serious threat.

Eh, probably fairly easy. Just needs a fairly well written, dynamically plotted story behind them.
