Shattered World Crisis
During the crisis, a Dark Gaia Titan manifested itself in Aquatic Mine Zone. While there, it encountered Knuckles the Echidna, the Chaotix, the Hooligans, and it's master's hated antithesis, Light Gaia. Demonstrating no apparent intent other than causing destruction, the creature soon began battling the Chaotix, while the Hooligans took advantage of its distraction to escape the mine with a Chaos Emerald. The Titan continued to battle Knuckles and his allies even as the mine began to flood, threatening to drown the Mobians. The heroes were able to escape the mine and catch up with the Hooligans, but the Titan followed them. Fortunately, Charmy Bee was able to buy them some time by "informing" Bean the Dynamite that the Titan had insulted his explosives. After suffering through this bombardment, the Titan remained eager to fight, but was handily dispatched by Knuckles. (SU: #65, #66)
A second Titan was later encountered by Knuckles and the Knothole Freedom Fighters in Apotos. It was engaged by Knuckles, Antoine and Bunnie Rabbot-D'Coolette, Amy Rose, and Sonic the Werehog, who discovered a shard of the shattered Master Emerald within its torso. After Antoine dislodged it, Knuckles and Amy finished it off. (StH: #272)
The Dark Gaia Titan is a massive, incredibly powerful creature that fights with a massive club. It is incredibly durable, suffering defeat only after taking tremendous punishment from attacking enemies.
- The Dark Gaia Titan's appearance in issue #272 marks one of the few times blood (albeit colored purple) and gore has been shown in the comics.
