Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 147 was the one hundred and forty-seventh issue of the main Sonic the Hedgehog comic series.
- "The Good, the Bad, and the Unknown" Part Two: "Ignition"
The newest Metal Sonic arrives at the site of the underground bunker, where the Freedom Fighter investigation team has splintered into two groups, with Tommy and Tails discovering a control room where they spot the rest of their team on the monitor. While worrying over injuries Sonic has apparently sustained, they then spot two figures on another monitor: Shadow and Isaac, the latter of whom Tails briefly theorizes might be a rebuilt Gamma. The other group of Freedom Fighters, fearing that the installation might be dangerous, decide to go after a solo Fiona to prevent her from coming to harm, with Sonic pushing Rotor along on a cart he located to help the Walrus keep up. Tails and Tommy are then able to make contact with them on an intercom system, informing them about Shadow and spotting Metal Sonic on the monitors at the same time.
Metal Sonic runs into Shadow and Isaac, warning them to submit to his demands, which Shadow promptly ignores. The two then begin fighting, and despite warnings from his comrades Sonic departs by himself to join the fray. He arrives on the scene as Metal Sonic and Shadow continue to fight, intriguing Isaac and provoking an attack by the ancient automaton. All four then begin scuffling, while Dr. Eggman watches through Metal Sonic's sensors with anticipation. In the control room, Tails and Tommy discover that Rotor, Bunnie, and Fiona are being electrocuted, but are unable to find any way to save them from the punishment. Desperately, Tails presses a button, only for the floor beneath the four combatants to drop away into a seemingly bottomless shaft.
- Sonic the Hedgehog "Off-Panel: "This Side of Parodies"
In the Off Panel universe, Editor Mike Pellerito angrily dismisses Sonic from his office. Mike Gallagher and Dave Manak then appear, dismaying Sonic as they begin to take advantage of their control over this "reality". The two then become super-hero versions of themselves called Dynamo Dave and Mighty Mike, and dismiss Sonic in the belief that they can handle saving the day now. Amused by the thought, Sonic heads to the Retirement Home for Castoff Robo-Badniks, where he recruits Caterkiller, Bat Brain, and Motobug to attack the two comic staff members. The two then begin arguing over whose fault the ambush is, and are subsequently attacked again. Mike then has a giant weight crush Dave, while Dave breaks out of it with an "exciting action sequence." Called by Sonic, Mike Pellerito appears to stop the two, only to be convinced to join in on their fun. He then adopts his own super-hero persona, "Editorius Rex", only for Managing Editor Victor Gorelick to end the story.
- Tails & Muttski in "Fox and the Hound"
Sonic emerges from his house to find Muttski waiting for him, hoping that the two can play together. Sonic declines, saying he has other business to take care of. A despondent Muttski is then found by Tails, who decides to play with the unhappy dog. The two then set off on a day of fun and games, but while playing hide and seek Muttski pins Tails and then growlingly refuses to let him up. Sonic arrives just in time, and soon clears up the misunderstanding by translating Muttski's barks and revealing that Muttski thought they were playing an old training game he and Sonic had come up with.
- Isaac: It Displays wit, implying intelligent thought. Therefore it could be dangerous and must be dealt with.
- Metal Sonic arrives at Isaac's bunker and becomes engaged in battle with first Isaac and Shadow, and then Sonic.
- The Freedom Fighters—with the exception of Sonic, Tails, and Tommy—are caught in a booby trap.
- The Muttski and Tails story makes several Scooby Doo references, including Muttski beginning number names with the letter "r" while he is counting, and Tails asking him if he wants a "Mooby Snack", obviously a parody of Scooby snacks.
- The arc's name is a spoof of the famous western film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly featuring Clint Eastwood.
- The Muttski and Tails story would be the last time any reference is made to the Universal Translator that Sonic has imbedded in his head during the Tossed in Space arc. From here on, the plotpoint is never refered to again, seemingly just having been forgotten by future writers.
