History/Background InformationEdit

See Article: Mephiles

Sometime before Darkness and Light began, Master Hand and Crazy Hand rescued Mephiles from the remnants of his erased timeline so Mephiles can fight Sonic.


Mephiles is a cold, ruthless villain with no sense of compassion. He would do anything to accomplish his goals, even if it means killing innocent people. He enjoys hurting others, but hates being defeated. He hates Shadow since he is the one that sealed Mephiles into the Scepter of Darkness. He also hates Sonic, along with his allies, since they helped Shadow destroy him and Iblis. Mephiles seems to respect Nazo, but dislikes the other members of the Organization (excluding the Darkness of Evil) for their failures and betrayals.

Darkness and Light ArcEdit

April 9, 2010

In Central City, Mephiles fights each member of Team Sonic. During the fight, he injects some of his energy into Scornic's neck and knocks Scornic unconscious. Mephiles eventually loses the fight by getting knocked unconscious by Sonic. He is also shown to have the purple Chaos Emerald in his possession, which had been launched out of his body after getting hit by Sonic's last attack. Confused as to why Mephiles had the purple Chaos Emerald, Sonic picks it up and plans to wake Mephiles up to question him about it. However, he is interrupted by Nazo appearing next to Mephiles. While Sonic is shocked at Nazo's sudden appearance, Nazo teleports himself and Mephiles out of the area.

Fire and IceEdit

Fire/Ice Origins ArcEdit

While Mario, Sonic, Shadow, and Knuckles fight Metal Sonic and Shadow Android, Mephiles and Nazo are discussing the situation of Akuma and Aaron defecting from the Organization. They then discuss about Nazo's machine, which, as soon as it reads the energy signature of a Fire Shine and Ice Shine, can track down any Fire and Ice Shines. They are interrupted by the true leader of the Organization, who orders them to find a Fire and/or Ice Shine. After he disappears, Nazo and Mephiles decide to check around the area where their base is located.

Hunt for Akuma ArcEdit

Mephiles and Nazo are at the Organization's hideout, telling Danix why they have hired him. Danix accepts the terms, but says that one of them has to go with him so he won't get bored. Nazo volunteers Mephiles (to his dismay) and they leave. Later, Mephiles and Danix are in the forest, with Danix finishing telling Mephiles a random story. After Danix senses Akuma's aura and explains about it to Mephiles, they are interrupted by Ryu, Squall, and the hero fan characters. Mephiles tells Danix to go after Akuma while he distracts the group. He summons the white and purple Chaos Emeralds, but then gets attacked by Jo, who volunteers to distract Mephiles while the group goes after Akuma. They then battle, with Mephiles getting frustrated about wasting time fighting Jo. Jo then attacks Mephiles with a Spirit Bomb, only for it to be deflected by Danix's Rasengan. Danix and Mephiles then leave the forest and return to the hideout. After having a conversation with Danix and after he leaves, Mephiles and Nazo discuss about what had happened in the forest and they decide to hook up the Fire Shine and Ice Shine to their machine.
