The Rocky Jungle Zone was visited by Sonic the Hedgehog, Sally Acorn, and Amy Rose of the Knothole Freedom Fighters during their search for the seven Chaos Emeralds. Arriving here in the midst of the Shattered World Crisis, the trio received an inhospitable welcome from E-113 Xi, but luckily ran into old allies Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel. The two took their friends to see their mentor Moss, and later set out in search of a nearby Emerald. Unfortunately, the five Mobians were soon attacked by the local Egg Army and its resident Egg-Boss, Thunderbolt. Sonic's first full transformation into the Werehog allowed them to escape this trap, but he remained in Rocky Jungle for a time to learn how to control this state from Moss. His lessons were eventually completed, just in time to help him defeat an attack by the Egg Army's Flying Dynamo. (StH: #264, #265, #266, #267)
