In the Midnight Hour: Edit
[Scene: Hedgehog Village, night.]
[Sticks is covered in paint and kicking and punching something, making karate calls. It's revealed that she was attacking a canvas, which now has a picture painted on it.]
Sticks: Sticks, you are a mixed martial artist. [She picks up the canvas and stares at it.] Don't lie to me, me; this thing stinks! [She tosses the canvas away.]
[Sticks hears a strange sound, and when she looks in the direction of the sound, there's an eerie, cloaked figure levitating beside a television antenna. Sticks silently creeps up to it, but the figure looks at her; its eyes are red, hypnotic swirls.]
Sticks: Ahhh! [She runs away, scared.]
[Scene Change: Sonic's Shack, night.]
[Sonic is sleeping in his hammock when Sticks comes up to him.]
Sticks: Sonic! Wake up!
Sonic: [mumbling in his sleep] What'd you say, sugarplum?
Sticks: Don't call me "sugar plum"; I'm not Amy! [She grabs Sonic by his nose, and he wakes up.]
Sonic: Sticks?! What are you doing?! Unhand my face!
Sticks: You've gotta come with me to the TV studio; there's a red-eyed prowler up to no good!
Sonic: But I was right in the middle of a really sweet dream. I was dancing with sugar plums! [He smiles and holds up one hand, but then he stares at the viewer.] You know, when I say it out loud, I kinda regret having said it out loud. And when I say it out loud, that's feels to me like I made a stupid decision.
[Sticks grabs Sonic's hand and drags him out of the shack.]
[Scene Change: Hedgehog Village, night.]
[Sonic and Sticks arrive at the TV studio, but Sonic is still sleepy; he yawns as Sticks looks around.]
Sticks: But I saw him with my own two eyes! I smelled him with my nose! I smorfed him with my sixth sense!
Sonic: (to himself) And I thought Zaktan's the only kook around here. (To Sticks) I'm going back to bed. [Walks away, leaving Sticks on her own.]
Sticks: That's the trouble with being a paranoid kook; when something really is going on, no one believes you! You can say that again. I know, right? It's like a Taylor Swift single mixed with a robo-pocalypse.
[Scene Change: Meh Burger, day.]
(Background music: Investigations by: Kevin MacLeod).
[Team Sonic and Team Crossovers are having a meal in there and Sticks has just explained the whole story to the other.]
Amy: And you saw him by yourself all night in the empty Village Center while finger painting?
Sticks: It's called Jujutsu Realism, and it is the purest form for expressing the depths of my soul. Plus, I found forty paint cans in my burrow and couldn't find anything else to do with them. [Yawns]
Zaktan: Exhausted? Me too. I can't help seeing zombie girls everywhere & it's enough to make me stir crazy.
Twilight Sparkle: The imaginary friend of yours again?
Zaktan: She is not imaginary.
Knuckles: Tired, huh? Not me. I slept like a baby last night! No really. An abandon crib washed up on the beach.
SpongeBob: Knuckles! As a sponge, fry cooker, and best friend, if you find a abandon crib washed up on the beach and you sleep like a baby in it, that's a red flag.
Tails: You know, Sticks, sleep deprivation has been linked to an increase in delusional behavior.
Sticks: That can't be it. I never sleep. But im telling ya, there's something fishy going on at that station and I'm gonna prove it.
Vezok: Then go ahead, prove it.
[Scene Change: Hedgehog Village, night.]
(Background music: Right Behind You by: Kevin MacLeod)
[Sticks is having a stakeout behind a tree when she spots the figure entering the TV studio. When she gets inside, he sees the figure holding a microphone in front of a TV camera.]
Dreamcaster: Hello, my sleeping friends. This is the Dreamcaster, and I'm gonna take you on a magical journey. All you have to do is follow my silky voice to the land of sugar plums where you want to go of your own free will and not because you're hypnotized.
[Suddenly, Dreamcaster's speech gets interuppted by Stick who is yelling her battle cry and tries to kick him. However, she misses and knocks down the set lights and the tv camera, causing Dreamcaster to retreat. Sticks now has the microphone and looks at the camera trying to warn the villagers of Hedgehog Village.]
Sticks: Denizens of our village, you're all being brainwashed! Don't be fooled! A robot is controlling your thoughts! Wake up, sheeple!
Sheep Villager: "Sheeple" is a negative term! We prefer "Sheep Villagers", I'm writing a letter to that network.
[Scene Change: Sonic's Shack, night.]
[Sonic is awaken by Sticks who is on TV.]
Sticks: [On TV] You're minds have been taken over by the Dreamcaster!
Sonic: Oh, geez. Sticks, what have you done?
Zaktan: (is seen, trying to catch Rottytops in a net, but notices the TV) Dreamcaster? (Notices Rottytops already ran off) D'oh!
[Scene Change: Hedgehog Village, night.]
[The villagers are gathered near the TV station muttering angrily. Sticks runs out of the studio to see the villagers.]
Sticks: I'm glad you're here. You guys ready to rage against the machine?!
Comedy Chimp: You! You destroyed my studio, you wacky broad! And I lost my insurance payment in a poker game!
[The villagers continue to mutter angrily until Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Team Crossovers arrive.]
Eddy: Whoa whoa whoa, hold it right there! Time out, everybody stop! There's no need to fuss it all over like that.
Sonic: Hold on! I'm sure there is a perfectly reasonable explanation.
Comedy Chimp: There is. I had pocket deuces. Who doesn't go all in with pocket deuces?
Ed: Are pocket deuces a disease? Like evil soap, the degertant of the deep?
Comedy Chimp: No! It's just part of a card game- nevermind...!
Sonic: No. I meant a perfectly reasonable explanation for all of this.
Applejack: Now just calm down & we can figure something out on what your trying to say.
Sticks: The studio was destroyed by a brain-washing robot who was trying to invade your dreams though the television!
Sonic: Well, I'm over too.
Tails: Sticks, nobody's seen this robot but you.
Carol Tea: Yeah, sorry for the harsh words. We just don't understand if he exists or not. We just want to go back to bed.
Sticks: But he really exist! His name's Dreamcaster!
Tails: That's the worst name I ever heard.
Sonic: It's not so bad.
Knuckles: Yeah. The "er" at the end is kinda nice.
Sticks: Look, we all agree that the name is terrible, but he's hypnotizing you with dreams of sugar plums! Why can't you get that through your dumb heads?!
Zaktan: I feel your pain.
Patrick: I suppose the inner machinations of our minds are an enigma. (Patrick's thought bubble imagines of spilt milk on the table)
Knuckles: As the proud owner of a dumb head, I don't like that you're talking down to me. And I don't care for your condescending altitude.
Tails: Not sure if that was a clever pun, or if you have no idea of what you're saying.
Knuckles: Why can it be both?
(SpongeBob looks at Knuckles like he doesn't believe in him.)
Knuckles: Look, it's a threat and a pun, I think. Nobody gets me.
SpongeBob: Sticks... I...
Sticks: I can't believe you guys don't trust me! I thought you were my friends!
[Sticks runs away from the villagers.]
Sash Lilac: Sticks! Wait!
Pinkie Pie: But we really ARE your friends! Sticks! (Sighs) Guess we should probably give her sometime alone.
[Scene Change: Sticks' Burrow, day.]
[Inside her burrow, Sticks has some art portraits til she punched one of them in her rage and kicks one near her door which it was opened by Zaktan]
Zaktan: Sticks? It's me, Zak- (got splattered with orange paint) -tan.
Sticks: What do you want? Still think I'm crazy?
Zaktan: I'd figured I know Rage painting when I see one. Besides, your not a crazy coo coo badger, ok?
Sticks: Your the one to talk with your imaginary zombie girl friend? Why is that you come to me?
Zaktan: Because I felt your pain before!
Sticks: (is a bit surprised by this) What?
Zaktan: (cleaning his face from the paint) Your not alone in this, I'm also a coo coo crazy piraka that thinks zombie girls are real, to the point that everyone thinks I'm a complete nutcase ever since the Zombie Pirate incident...!
Sticks: So you actually believe me?
Zaktan: After what you've been through. Yes. (Comes over to the door) So where should we start?
[However, before they exit the door, it was suddenly burst open by two officers and Comedy Chimp.]
Comedy Chimp: That's her, officers! The one who broke into my studio and went Bananas!
[The officers do not laugh at that joke.]
Zaktan: Your the one to talk, Chimp.
Comedy Chimp: [Groans] That's it. I'm out!
(Then he leaves the burrow)
Sticks: [Throws a portiant of Amy away] It wasn't me! It was Dreamcaster!
Officer Beaver: If Comedy Chip saids it, it's gotta be true. [pulls out his handcuffs] After all, he is on TV.
[The officer tries to handcuff Sticks but she escaped from her burrow and runs off to encounter Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Team Crossovers.]
Sticks: Oh, man. I'm glad you guys showed up to... [Sonic handcuffs Sticks] Arrest me?! [The officers approach her] That's not where I was going with that sentence!
Zaktan: Are you serious right now?
Sonic: Sorry, Sticks. It's for your own good.
Amy: Maybe a night at the old stoney lonesome will clear your head.
Applejack: Zaktan, are you siding with Sticks? Are you sure about this?
Zaktan: As much as it pains me, you guys are going about this all wrong! And no, I'm not taking sides!
Edd: Please, I know you & Sticks are going through similar hallucinations with wreckless abandon, but we really need you to cease with the imaginations, otherwise you be in an asylum with her? Do you want that to happen, now would we?
Zaktan: (sighs in defeat) Ugh, why do I even bother?! (quickly storms off in anger)
Vezok: (turns to the group) Do we have to be so critical to each other?
Twilight Sparkle: We're so sorry, but we had no other choice. The hardest of decisions are made with the strongest of wills. I know it hurts, but they must understand the gravity on what they did. I know there's something suspicious, but we don't know which is real & which is not.
Avak: Still... can't help, but think... we'll be right back.
[The officers take Sticks away while the Piraka following Zaktan just as Dreamcaster appears before Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Team Crossovers.]
Dreamcaster: You have all earned your sugar plums.
[Team Sonic and Team Crossovers get hypnotized by Dreamcaster.]
Team Sonic and Team Crossovers: (Robotic Voice) Yes, master!
[Scene: Hedgehog Village, night.]
Zaktan: (turns to the rest of the Piraka, seeing them) And what do you want?
Hakann: Look, were starting to think that this zombie girl incident feels so real to you. And we cant help but wonder if your telling the truth.
Zaktan: (turn to the Piraka in anger) I am! Now Mind your own business okay?! (Growling like a beast)
Thok: Please calm yourself. I know your not in the right mind, but with good reason. But nothing productive comes from that.
Zaktan: (sighs, while calming down) That's true. Look, I apologise Alright? Still, it is hard to believe that first the zombie girl, now the Dreamcaster. Maybe it really was our imaginations? Guys, what do you think? (No response) Guys? Do you agree with me or not? (Still no response) Guys, stop messing with me, we've already tried... (turns & gasps to notice the other 5 Piraka were hypnotised right in front of him)
Reidak, Hakann, Vezok, Avak & Thok: (hypnotised by the Dreamcaster) Come & earn your sugar plum!
Zaktan: (is surprised) Oh snap...! (Quickly rushes off) STICKS!!!
Reidak, Hakann, Vezok, Avak & Thok: (slowly chasing Zaktan)
[At the village jail, harmonica music is heard from inside the jail. Sticks is not playing the harmonica.]
Sticks: This is so depressing.
[She gets up and walks to a record player playing the jail music. She turns it off.]
Sticks: Even "Melancholic Harmonica Music Volume 2" can't cheer me up. Along with Pitbull, Justin Bieber, Tokyo Machine, and Daddy Yankee. I can't believe my friends thinks I'm a wack-a-ding. What if my perception of reality really IS distorted? Maybe this isn't my hand. Maybe it is my foot!
Rottytops: (pops up from the ground) Hi...!
Sticks: (screams) Zombie!
Rottytops: Sorry for barging in uninvited, but have you seen Zaktan? I gotta tell him about this Zombie Party!
Sticks: Dont eat my brains, please, I-?! Wait, Zombie Party?
[Suddenly, Sticks hears groaning. She & Rottytops looks outside though the window bars and sees the villagers and Team Sonic as mind slaves of Dreamcaster. A large golden Piraka like figure arrives and laughs, it was Irnakk, with a new title, the Piraka of Nightmares along with a blue floating head itch long blue hair & an oversized pink bow named Dreamcatcher.]
Irnakk: Ah, aren't they just a couple of fools! I finally have you all under my control! And all it took was the power of television and a charmingly hypnotic robot! Even thou I don't find him particularly charming.
Dreamcatcher: Even I don't find him charming either. Gross.
Sticks: Who is that?
Rottytops: (to Sticks) I don't know him, but he's a big boy.
Irnakk: By using the television antenna to broadcast dream-controlling mind waves was a work of brilliance. Shame that I'm too humble to bring it up.
Dreamcatcher: Ain't technology like, grand?
Zaktan: STICKS!!! (Rushing over to the scene)
Zaktan: (notices Irnakk & stops) Irnakk!
Irnakk: Zaktan! The one who faced your fear & conquered it! We meet again...!
Zaktan: What are you even doing here?! And also, who is that?
Irnakk: Doesn't matter how I end up here & this is Dreamcatcher, a Wind element Doom Raider. The others send their regards, but back to the topic. Let's just say that The mind control began slowly, thanks to Dreamcaster's hypnotic commands. But overtime like tonight, it's now in full effect. For I pull the strings! Observe! Dreamcaster?
Dreamcaster: Everyone, dance the dance of dreams.
Team Sonic, Team Crossovers, and the villagers: (Robotic Voice) Yes, Master!
[Takin' Back My Love by: Enrique Iglesias ft. Ciara plays, and the hypnotized Team Sonic, Team Crossovers, and villagers start dancing.]
Dreamcatcher: You see, even I find this funny! (giggling)
Irnakk: (chuckles) Look at them dance, aren't they just precious?
Zaktan: (growls) Grrr, this is becoming a living nightmare already!
Rottytops: Oh so cool! Think they can do the Thriller?!
Sticks: I knew it! I knew Dreamcaster was real! I guess my hand really is my hand.
Zaktan: Irnakk! You free these people right now, mister!
Irnakk: Oh please, it be more fun to see them suffer. A nightmare disguised as a dream, only this time it has finally became reality!
[Sticks sees a red high heel shoe on her right hand. She screams and shakes it off. The shoe flies off and hits Irnakk.]
Irnakk: Ow! (Turns to Sticks & Rottytops) Who goes there?
Dreamcatcher: (seeing Rottytops) Like, OMG, what?
Zaktan: First of all, I knew it! And second, You weren't affected by Dreamcaster's control, because you're the only one in town without a TV?!
Irnakk: How interesting.
Dreamcatcher: What's wrong with you, girl?
Irnakk: What do you do on Saturday mornings? What do you talk about on the water cooler? When do you have enough time to watch ESPN Sports?
Zaktan: (remembering the football incident with the Mane 6) Do you have to bring THAT up?!
Irnakk: (turn back to Zaktan) Jealous?
Sticks: I knew TV was just a big conspiracy to control everyone's minds! [Looks at the camera] I'm not talking to you. You keep watching.
Rottytops: So, can we join the party? Pretty please?!
Dreamcatcher: How about no!
Irnakk: (as Zaktan get into fighting stance) You know, A town full of sleepwalking minions is nice, but an entire planet full is better. Begin the Upgrade construction of the Super Slumber Satellite!
(Background Music: Star Clusters by: P.A.N.D.A (a.k.a my own Animusic))
[Irnakk & Dreamcatcher moves away and the sleepwalkers stand back as a satellite part drops on the ground. The sleepwalkers start building the satellite.]
Zaktan: Oh no you don't! (Tackles at Irnakk)
Irnakk: (quickly sways him away with his size & strength) I won't go easy on you this time!
[Sticks tries to squeeze through the bars inside the prison, but her hair gets stuck. She flops, and then trys kicking her legs. However, she falls backwards. She gets up quickly and finds Knuckles carrying another satellite part.]
Rottytops: (quickly tosses her own Zombie head at Knuckles to get his attention) Whee! (the rest of her body digs underground to the outside & remerges to reattatch her Zombie head back on her Zombie body to fight the Dreamcatcher)
Sticks: Psst... Knuckles.
[Knuckles turns to face Sticks & Rottytops]
Sticks: [Slowly] We got sugarplums up in here.
[Knuckles drops the satellite part, smiles crazy with his tongue sticking out, and punches a hole in the wall, freeing Sticks.]
Sticks: Ha ha!
[Sticks & Rottytops runs and confronts Irnakk, Dreamcatcher and Dreamcaster, with Irnakk grabbing Zaktan by the neck. Dreamcaster turns to face the Walrus Camera Man.]
Zaktan: You wouldn't even dare!
Irnakk: Now you will see that there are fates worse than death! (Rolls Zaktan like a bowling ball to Sticks & Rottytops very fast, knocking the two over)
Dreamcatcher: (blows the three backwards)
Dreamcaster: Listen to Dreamcaster and fall into slumber.
[The TVs turn on and generate a buzzing sound, forcing Sticks, Zaktan & Rottytops to cover their ears. Dreamcaster appears on TV.]
Zaktan: Gah! It's a pain in the ears! Even thou I don't have them!
Dreamcaster: Taste the plums made of sugar and join us.
[The camera cuts to Sticks with Knuckles being seen slowly walking behind her.]
Sticks: Must... fight... delicious... candy... fruit things! Don't... be... hypnotized!
[Sticks sees Irnakk's nightmare glare that his eyes are glowing an ominius red, she screams, grabbing Zaktan & Rottytops and runs away.]
Zaktan: Hey! Battlefield's that way!
Dreamcatcher: Well that's just no fun. I wanna play some more.
Irnakk: Wow. I never pegged her for the cowardly type. Speaking of... (his eyes glow red again with his nightmare glance)
[Scene Change: Sticks' Burrow, night.]
[Sticks puts some of her belongings in her backpack and runs back outside.]
Zaktan: Where do you think your going? (notices what's in the bag with Rottytops)
Rottytops: Safety first...
[Scene Change: Hedgehog Village, night.]
Irnakk: (with Dreamcatcher) Attention all Hypnotized minions: this is a glorious night. For me at least. My nightmare influence will no longer be limited to the 6 Piraka or this small village, but will spread to small and mid-sized villages & large cities & huge countries all over the planet & so on & so forth!. (to himself) Note to self that I just want to point out they're not applauding 'cause they're zombies. Not because they're unimpressed.
(Irnakk looks on as he walks to the construction of the Super Slumber Satallite)
Irnakk: When my plan is complete, Dreamcaster will broadcast worldwide, and I'll be unstoppable! Hahahahaha! And it all begins with just a press of this button...
[Irnakk presses the button. The flaps opens to reveal a switch.]
Irnakk: And then a flick of this switch...
[Irnakk flicks the switch. A keycode appears.]
Irnakk: Then I gotta enter my key code here... Scan my thumb print... Swipe my ID badge...
Dreamcatcher: (getting impatient) Like, Get on with it!
Irnakk: And finally!...[Sticks swings in with Zaktan, Rottytops & a rope holding her backpack while Rocket by: Kevin MacLeod plays.]
Sticks: Not so fast, Irnakk!
Irnakk: Fast? What part of that process seemed fast to you? These complicated yet cheaply made security codes never work for anyone!
Rottytops: Who know who else is fast? (Quickly charges with her fast running)
Irnakk: (is amazed by Rottytops' fast running) Goodness gracious!
[Irnakk dodges a charging Sticks & Rottytops. The TVs turn back on with Dreamcaster on the screens again. Zaktan lands on the Satellite, opens up Sticks' backpack and the three puts on each of a foil hat. They engages her fighting pose.]
Rottytops: (as Dreamcatcher was taken back by the tin foil hats) Safety first...!
Irnakk: Of course! A tinfoil hat! The only surefire way to protect from mind control.
Rottytops: And brain tumours.
Dreamcatcher: (confused) What?
Irnakk: Nonetheless. I still have an army of sleepwalkers. Zombies, attack!
[The zombies walk slowly and make zombie-like noises. Irnakk scratches his head.]
Irnakk: Admittedly, not the most effective army. If you want something done right... (quickly rushes at the three with Dreamcatcher to engage into a fight with beastly fashion, while launching Zamor Spheres of his own at the three)
[With the zombies walking in the background, Irnakk quickly attacks at the 3 heroes like a wild animal, while Sticks swings across on her rope and then back. Zaktan quickly hops from rooftop to rooftop, with parkour skills, trying to getaway from Irnakk, while blasting him & Dreamcatcher with Zamor Launchers, while Dreamcatcher trying to give chase to the green skakdi. Rottytops also making the zombies chase her to distract them. The zombies follow Sticks, Zaktan & Rottytops wherever they go, mostly Rottytops.]
Rottytops: I'm over here! No, over here! (Tagging the slow walking Zombies) Tag your it! Tag your it! Tag your it! (Giggling mischievously)
[Sticks is then shown holding another foil hat while swinging the rope. She approaches Sonic and places the foil hat on him. Sonic turns back to normal.]
Sonic: Sticks? What's going on?
Sticks: [Lands next to Sonic holding several foil hats] Mind control!
[Sticks offers a hat to Sonic. Sonic takes one]
Sticks: Now, put these on Knuckles, Tails, and the rest of the crossovers! I'll get Amy and Rarity! (Unaware of Irnakk focusing his attention to Sticks) After all, they did make me beautiful at the gala. (Irnakk quickly rushes at Sticks like a charging bull)
Sonic: Sticks! Look out!
(Before Irnakk, Dreamcatcher & Dreamcaster could ram Sticks & Sonic down, the two villains were suddenly ambushed with the other zombies by a certain yellow sponge, which is SpongeBob himself, who cover the eyes of Irnakk.)
SpongeBob: (secretly had new contact lenses) Gotcha!
Sticks: (surprised with Sonic) SpongeBob?! How did you...?!
SpongeBob: Contact lenses! Works wonders, now go! (make Irnakk ram into a boulder that crumbles underneath him, upon impact, but SpongeBob quickly jumps off & land on his feet to face Dreamcaster)
Dremacatcher: (turning to SpongeBob) You Sponge brat, I wonder what dreams I can absorb...! (Charges trying to get into his mind)
SpongeBob: (quickly puts on a tin foil hat & jumps over Dreamcatcher & dropkicks at the back of her head) Whoops...
SpongeBob: (battliang Dreamcatcher) Zaktan!
Zaktan: (nods) Right! (Bringing out 5 tin foil hats) These are for you! (Place the hats on the Piraka's heads)
Reidak, Hakann, Vezok, Avak & Thok: (were suddenly free from Mind control)
Avak: Augh...! Zaktan? Why do we have the urge to eat sugar plums?
Zaktan: No time, help the rest of the gang!
[Sonic and Sticks both set off with the Piraka. Sonic somerasults over Knuckles while placing a foil hat on his head.]
Knuckles: Hey... I'm no longer in a mind-numbing stupor. I'm back to my regular stupor!
[Sticks places two foil hat on Amy's head and Rarity's head. The camera cuts back to Sonic who tosses a foil hat onto Tails' head. The Piraka quickly Rush & place a multitude of foil hats on Team Crossover's heads, with Rottytops placing more on the Mixels' heads. Irnakk, who emerges from the rubble grunts in anger and gazes at the team, that unloading a series of Badniks & nightmare versions that are more of them that are difficult to defeat, same with Dreamcatcher's nightmare dream minions as well, that approach Team Sonic. Sonic spin attacks a Bee Bot and a Crab Bot in front of Amy, Tails, and Team Crossovers. The Eds preform the Batter Ed at the Crab Bots. With the rest of the Crossovers take on Irnakk with the Piraka's help, thou they are struggling, due to Irnakk's sheer size, strength & brutality. Knuckles punches a Motobug but drops his hat, turning back into a zombie. Another Motobug rolls the foil hat up in the air. Amy discovers the airborne hat and catches it. She tosses it back to Knuckles' head. However, she misses the target and it lands on Wild Cat's head instead, turning him back to normal.]
Wild Cat: Finally, I'm free. You know, this whole experience has been a metaphor for my entire life. No longer will I be just another face in the crowd. I'm gonna turn my life around. Look out world, Wild Cat's coming at ya!
[Tails walks in and takes the foil hat off Wild Cat.]
Tails: Sorry to interrupt your epiphany. Kinda need this to fight bad guys!
[Tails flies off with the foil hat and places it on Knuckles' head. Knuckles, now back to normal, punches another Crab Bot. The camera cuts to Sonic, Amy and Tails attacking more Badniks. After Knuckles punches yet another Crab Bot, Sticks turns around and confronts Dreamcaster, who is getting tangled with SpongeBob's sudden ambush, in term he manages to pull the cloak disguise off of the Dreamcaster, unraveling his disguise and roars at him, Sticks & Zaktan.]
SpongeBob: Ah! So much for getting a good night sleep!
Zaktan: Dreamcaster, Irnakk, you had this coming for a long time!
Irnakk: (powers out of Team Sonic & Team Crossovers, roaring in anger & charges again) This is a nightmare you won't awake from!
Sticks: Irnakk, Dreamcatcher, Dreamcaster, time for bed!
[Sticks shows him two paint tubes]
Sticks: [Softly] And here's the lullaby... [Harshly while releasing paint from the tubes] of paint! [The paint directly hits Dreamcaster's, Dremactacher's & Irnakk's eyes, blinding them.]
Irnakk: Gah! My eyes! (Stepping backwards)
Dreamcatcher: I can't see!
[While roaring, the three rubs their eyes to get rid of the paint, only for Rottytops to give Irnakk the boot, literally as she uses her own leg as a weapon to smack at Irnakk's skull. Zaktan slashes the weapons off of Irnakk before blasting him back near the edge of the hill. Sticks chucks away the paint tubes and attacks Dreamcaster, punching and kicking his body. He is blown back and collides into a wall with Irnakk, breaking down and releasing oil on him, in term the force pushed Irnakk tumbling down the cliffside.]
Irnakk: (screaming as he is falling downhill & out into the shore of the ocean) This isn't the end! I'll be back! (Crashes into the ocean)
[The camera cuts to the villagers - who are turned back to normal - cheering and laughing. However, their celebration is cut short as they hear the rest of Team Sonic fighting off the rest of the Nightmares Badniks. Knuckles grabs hold of a Motobug, picks it up and throws it towards Sonic, who spin attacks and breaks it.]
Dreamcatcher: (trying to see due to being blinded by paint, thou is floating) Hey, where is everybody? Come back... you guys are no fun. If I can see, I'm so gonna... (hit a tree by accident) Ow! Fine, I'm going home. (Trying to float away but keeps hitting each & every tree along the way of her escape) Oof! Ow! Gah! Ow!
Rottytops: So much for that mind control scheme of his & the party's over.
Zaktan: Yeah, at least everyone can sleep tonight in the end. Now, allow me to introduce you to the rest of the... (turns to see Rottytops already left, seeing her heading back deep in the woods) Gang? (Sighs) Every time... but there's always next time.
Sticks: Well. Aren't you going to apologize?
Sonic: Apologize for what? We were under mind control!
Amy: It wasn't us. It was Dreamcaster talking!
Sticks: Really? [Excitedly] So, don't you all think Zaktan & I are nuts?
[Team Sonic and Team Crossovers hesitate to ask, but SpongeBob steps forward]
SpongeBob: I don't think your nuts at all.
Sticks: I knew it!
Zaktan: Wait, hold on a second. How exactly did you get these contact lenses?
SpongeBob: (as he already taken the lenses offscreen) Well, believe it or not. Let's just say it happened this morning...
(Flashback to last night, very late this morning with SpongeBob)
SpongeBob: (taking a nice late walk in the woods, seeing the stars at night, passing Sticks' Burrow, seeing the paintings that Sticks' made) Wow, reminds me of my art classes with Squidward. Good thing I didn't go back to the dump for it. (about to continue on, but was grabbed with his mouth covered by a tall white & red mantis like robot, named Krika, a Makuta that shows mercy & honour & was taken to a good distance in a hidden place.)
Krika: Dont panic...
SpongeBob: (panics with a Finn like scream, seeing something scary as him) A sinister robot of Eggman & Plankton!
Krika: That's close enough, but I'm glad that I caught you.
SpongeBob: Huh? What do you mean? Your not gonna chomp me up into little pieces & eat'em?
Krika: Actually, I wanted to give you these. (Give the Special contact lenses to SpongeBob)
SpongeBob: Huh? Contact lenses? But why? I'm not blind.
Krika: No, but what Sticks is speaking is the truth.
SpongeBob: What do you... (got picked up by Krika & shows him outside the woods to see the village with hypnotised zombies) Oh my gosh...!
Krika: Shh, look... (point to the Team Crossovers approaching to Team Sonic)
Eddy: Hey! What's going on?
Pinkie Pie: That doesn't sound super happy... more super scary...
Twilight Sparkle: Team Sonic? Is everything o-
(Sonic, Tails, Knuckles & Amy turn to the team, hypnotised & eating Sugar Plums.)
Sonic, Tails, Knuckles & Amy: (hypnotised) Want a Sugar Plum or two...?
Boggy B: Holy Baloney! (Jumps back) What happened?!
SpongeBob: (quickly put on the Contact lenses, seeing Dreamcaster, while Krika uses density to camoflauge within the background while SpongeBob quickly hides in the bushes, noticing that Dreamcaster has gotten to his friends) ?!
(Flashback to this morning.)
(SpongeBob & Krika remained hidden witmessing Sticks getting arrested, while Zaktan storms off in anger, before Dreamcaster return to the rest.)
SpongeBob: (whispers) That's a lot to take in, but why did you save me?
Krika: I'm the only Makuta to show mercy & honour. Now, pretend to be hypnotised & move in for the ambush. When Sticks gets back, let her finish the job. Understand?
SpongeBob: (seeing their friends leaving with Dreamcaster) I understand, but you know, it would be easier if we work together, we have a much better chance. What do you say? Can you please help us on defeating Dream- (notices Krika is already gone) -Caster...? (Rubbing his head) Oh gosh, now I know how Sticks & Zaktan feel...
(End of Flashback)
SpongeBob: And that's how I first & last met Krika, the end.
(The group were surprised by this story, thou most of them feel like SpongeBob either lost it or speaking the truth.)
Sonic: (sighs while in disbelief) Not you too...
Ed: Maybe they should eat more vegetables.
Sticks: You did all this under Krika's instructions? But why did he really help you?
SpongeBob: I don't know exactly why he did save me? But he is so mysterious. Do you think I might see him again?
Zaktan: (comes over to SpongeBob with Sticks) We'll probably never know.
(The group look on at the stars at night, while Sunset Shimmer & Starlight Glimmer look on, feeling more suspicious about this Krika character, thou feel like they decided to keep close to the group to be safe.)
(Meanwhile, back at the beachside near a cliff.)
(Irnakk's arm is seen grabbing onto the top of the cliff, meaning Irnakk is climbing his way out of the ocean & the beach to on top of a cliff side with an evil smirk & glowing red eyes, knowing that it's only the beginning.)
Irnakk: (standing on top of a cliff, slowly standing up tall) One day... I'll be back...! For it is only just begun!
