Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 82 was the eighty-second issue of the main Sonic the Hedgehog comic series.
- "Night of Chaos"
- "Door to the Past"
Knuckles the Echidna observed a spear that would be "nasty to use in a fight." He remarks that he never saw an echidna use this kind of weapon before. He's then seemingly stuck by a light ball in the forehead. The light ball reveals herself to be Tikal, who asks for Knuckles' help. He refuses, so to convince him, she tells him about the Knuckles Clan, the war they fought with the Mysterious Cat Country and the unleashment of Chaos. Knuckles was still confused of why she needed his help, so Tikal explains that she and the Chao sealed Chaos in the Emerald, but not without consequences.
Eggman, elsewhere, was receiving frogs-with-tails from his E-100 Series. The only one that managed to get the frog he wanted was E-102 Gamma. He then took the frog and used a new device that would take Froggy's chaos energy and put it into Chaos. After Chaos acquired the energy, Eggman then sent it to look for the others.
In the Mysterious Cat Country, the Cat Queen told the other Chaotix that she believes they pose a problem. Vector objects but the Queen tells them to stay in for they are known to eat their children if they misbehave. Julie-Su says they have to be kidding when Locke, suddenly appearing, tells the Queen she better be.
