Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power

Me, a hero? Don’t make me laugh. That’s the absolute last thing I’d ever consider myself or aspire to be. Justice, peace, heroism, whatever… Those things are meaningless to me. Who’s the strongest? That’s my only concern. Anything else is nothing more than a delusion for the weak.

Metal Sonic 3.0 is a regular and frequently recurring character throughout the series, having appeared in all four episodes, plus the four Christmas Specials. Unlike his portrayal in Sonic Rivals 2, 3.0 was given a personality, and his rivalry with the original Metal Sonic was expanded upon. Metal Sonic 3.0 is portrayed as an extremely rude, egotistical, and arrogant character who prides himself on being built with the latest technology, considering all outdated machinery to be utterly worthless and insignificant. As such, he has an obsessive rivalry with the original Metal Sonic. Despite suffering countless defeats at the hand of his counterpart numerous times, Metal Sonic 3.0 still believes himself to be the superior model.

In the first three Elements of Power episodes, Metal Sonic 3.0 was an antagonist, but ended up becoming an anti-hero as of the first Christmas Special, and one of the protagonists in the fourth episode. Metal Sonic 3.0's portrayal in the story was inspired by Bass/Forte from the Mega Man series, as they are both clones of another character, have the same egotistical attitude, competitive mentality, and desire to become the strongest among all robots.
