Worlds Unite - Part Nine: Infinite Possibilities
The heroes split and each group enters a Genesis Portal to stop the Mavericks and recruit heroes to assist them against Sigma. Sonic the Hedgehog and Break Man enter in the world of Alex Kidd, where they see Alex and Stella challenging Magna Centipede in a janken game to make him stop him from setting the Unity Engine in Miracle World. As Magna Centipede cheats, they destroy him and they are recruited by the two heroes.
In the world of Ghosts 'n Goblins, Arthur prepares to face Astaroth in his castle, but the demon lord sends Firebrand to deal with him. Before the battle starts, Zain and Geemel appear from a Genesis Portal. Believing that the two are knights, Arthur asks them to assist him in the battle against the demons, but they hit him and his armor falls. Zero and Bunnie Rabbot appear and fight the Mavericks, and Astaroth, annoyed with the confusion in his castle, asks what is going on. Bunnie explains that the two robots were sent by Sigma to steal the energy from his world, and Astaroth pulverizes the two intruders, making a truce with Arthur and sending Firebrand with him to deal with the Sigma problem.
Back in the unified world, Sigma notes that with so many worlds available, he will gain great power and become a god in a matter of hours, but X and his allies are causing trouble to his army, and may be a problem for him. Sigma than decides to make sure they have nowhere to rally when they return, and looks to the Sky Patrol.
In the world of Skies of Arcadia, Knuckles the Echidna and Quake Woman arrive in Crescent Isle, where they see Enrique, Drachma, Gilder, Fina, Aika and Vyse fighting Tidal Makkoeen. After the Maverick's defeat, the two heroes explain the situation and the Blue Rogues agree to help.
In the world of Street Fighter, the new Team Sticks defeat Magma Dragoon in Metro City. Ryu and Ken than start wrecking the Unity Engine, and Sticks plays with Magma Dragoon's head, using it as a sort of helmet. Guile notes to Chun-Li that although they stopped the Maverick in the area, what's stopping Sigma to sending others to the same world. True to his concern, Blizzard Buffalo is preparing an Unity Engine in Thailand, but is interrupted by M. Bison. After taking information from the Maverick, M. Bison destroys him and says that Sigma now has the full attention of Shadaloo.
In the world of NiGHTS into Dreams..., NiGHTS and Reala fight against Storm Eagle and Storm Owl in the Dream Gate. Miles "Tails" Prower and Air Man appear and assist the two to defeat the bird Mavericks. NiGHTS gladly accepts to assist the heroes, but Reala only goes with them because Wizeman orders Reala to make sure Sigma pay for his arrogance.
