Remember when Shadow was forced to remove his own limiters to finally get Knuckles rekt?
And yet, it took him literally no effort at all to deal with Sonic, a few minutes earlier.
This will always make me wonder how strong Knuckles may FULLY and ACTUALLY be. Because it seems that this red echidna is somewhat used to simply “adjust” his own strength accordingly to who he might be about to face.
And nope, I didn’t forget about a post about him literally punching Sonic outta his Super Form™.
