Well, I stumbled across this gem a little while ago, I was actually looking for flash animations that featured battles between Shadow from the Sonic the Hedgehog Universe, and Vegeta from the Dragon Ball Universe, although this is not that, it features both characters. Shadow and Vegeta both take the lead role for their respective brands, stepping from behind Sonic and Goku. This article will give a few spoilers into the series, so if you don’t want to know about them, I’d suggest that you skip to the bottom. These spoilers will only cover the first three episodes into the series, the fourth episode should be available to watch by the time this article makes it to the web.
Episode one starts with us briefly, and I do mean briefly, joining a conversation between the two heroes of the series. It then fades from that scene to Sonic, storming Dr. Robotnik’s, otherwise known as Eggman’s, base. His mission is to save his friends, Amy Rose, and Knuckles the Echidna. While Sonic is on his way to save them, he’s stopped by Metal Sonic, and the Shadow Android. Shadow, along with Rouge the Bat and Omega, bust in having been sent on their own mission to stop Robotnik. Sonic and Shadow battles their respective clones, defeating them, and proceed to go after Eggman. Shadow’s teammates have been captured and are being held prisoner by Eggman as well at this point. Robotnik demands that Shadow give him his Chaos Emerald. He then begins to explain a connection between the Chaos Emeralds of Sonic’s world and the Dragon Balls. Then we’re taken to Goku who seems to be training himself when he senses the Dragon Balls and follows one moving at an incredibly high speed. Goku runs into Vegeta and they both talk about sensing an energy that is more powerful than Buu, 7 of them in fact. Goku notes that it seems the Dragon Balls are being pulled toward them. Shenron is summoned by Robotnik and wishes to be King of the World. Shenron is in motion to complete said wish, when Shadow uses his Chaos Control to disrupt the process sending away the Chaos Emeralds. This merges Sonic’s world of Mobius, and Goku’s Earth together, into one. From here, Shadow and Vegeta meet, and that pretty much sums up the first episode.
Episode two Shadow and Vegeta are after one of the Chaos Emeralds, and they come across two of Ivo Robotnik’s newer Egg series robots, though the actual sprites I think are from Metal Slug. They battle the robots to a stand still, until Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan and destroys them. Then two new enemies, and you will be surprised when you see who they are, show up, and pretty much squash Shadow and Vegeta. The emerald is taken, and Shadow and Vegeta are left battered and broken.
Episode three Shadow questions Vegeta about his Super Form, and asks how is able to do so. After a short conversation, Shadow trains with Vegeta, trying to unlock his own super form without the use of the Chaos Emeralds. After some time of them training, Bulma sends Rouge to get them and tell them that she located another Chaos Emerald as well as two Dragon Balls. Vegeta takes off after the Emerald followed by Bulma, leaving Shadow and Rouge to go after the Dragon Balls. I won’t spoil anything else with this episode, it’d ruin it.
I did leave out some details from the first episode, so you’ll still have to watch it, and I didn’t nearly give you enough info on the second and third. The series is really well done for someone so young, being that the creator is only in his teens. Soon the quality of his work will be on par with that of many of the other sprite animators who have been doing it for years. I’ve also done a short interview with him about his series, which I will be posted here as well, thank you for reading, and please, pay him a visit at http://maverickkayprime.newgrounds.com/
