Worlds Unite - Part Eleven: Killing the Giant
Picking up where the previous issue left off, the various heroes of various worlds are on a battleship. Sonic then makes a speech to Sigma stating that Sigma messed with himself and Mega Man, messed with their respective worlds, and thought he was clever to mix with various other characters' worlds as well. It then pans to Break Man, Ryu, Zero, Gilius Thunderhead, NiGHTS, Sally Acorn, the Gore Magala with Felyne and Palico, and Fastidious Beaver ready to fight Sigma, with Sonic stating that he and Mega Man aren't the only heroes out there, let alone the only ones ready to fight Sigma, and that they are now all ready to "kick [Sigma's] planet-sized butt". However, Mega Man whispers that he doubts Sigma's listening, with Sonic sheepishly calling Sigma a jerk and suggests Vyse get his attention. Vyse then tells them to ready the moon stone cannon, and then gives the order to fire as both Sigma's mavericks and the united heroes proceed to attack each other.
Meanwhile, on the Lost Hex, Dr. Wily and Eggman had arrived at the area and were sneaking through the fortifications. While hiding behind cables, Eggman notes under breath that he doesn't see any defenses, with Wily while whispering deducing that Sigma had arrogantly believed that he killed them while onboard the Sky Patrol when he earlier attacked it, but nonetheless notes it can't hurt to be cautious, but then briefly interrupts himself when he notices that Xander Payne is walking past them towards the Master Engine. Wily then asks Eggman if it was a good idea to have Metal Sonic deliver the final Chaos Emerald to the heroes instead of having them keep it, as the Chaos Emeralds sounded very powerful. Eggman then rebuked him stating that they were about to access an even greater power via the Master Engine. However, Eggman does express his concern and suspicion regarding Xander Payne aiding them towards going to the Master Engine and working hard aiding them in their goal, especially considering he's an anti-technology zealot. Xander Payne, having overheard Eggman's remark, then tells them that it's because he's seen that he has to do it and that he must do it as his destiny, regardless of whether he personally likes the idea or not. To himself, however, he also remarks he'll probably like the destiny just fine if said destiny requires that Eggman and Wily are to be sacrificed. He then tells them to catch up, as the Master Engine can't be far, with Wily and Eggman expressing excitement, with Wily expressing which is better, warping reality to ensure they're gods, or using the Master Engine to get revenge on Sigma, with Eggman proposing a revenge-on-loop reality just for Sigma.
Back to the battle, NiGHTS and Firebrand managed to take down a Maverick hand, Sexy Silvia and Stella take down another Maverick, Ryu of Breath of Fire III and Ryu of Street Fighter proceeded to smash some Mavericks, and Vyse, Antoine D'Coolette, Ax Battler, Zero, and Rei manage to do numbers on the Guardroid αs. Sigma soon starts rolling out duplicates of his first body, but these fall just as easily before the heroes. As the battle wears on, the enemy forces soon begin to fall apart as does Sigma's body, apparently in defeat.
Any sense of victory is short-lived as Sigma bursts out in his smaller Sigma-3 body, the second form having been a mere cocoon as he prepared himself for his next step to godhood. He then maniacally declares that he'll go for other worlds, although not before he takes the heroes out. Going on the offensive, Sigma's power is far greater than that of any of the good guys as he cleanly takes out anyone in his path. Down to their last card, Sonic breaks out the Chaos Emeralds and gives Mega Man a quick tutorial on how to use them. The two achieve their super transformations and begin the final clash against Sigma.
