Tikal citing her prayer.

Tikal's Prayer is a reoccurring quotation in the anime series Sonic X. It is an ancient chant from the Knuckles Clan which is used when tapping into the power of the Master Emerald.


Tikal's Prayer is a mantra which has been used exclusively by the echidnas of the Knuckles Clan. It is often used by the clan to draw out the full potential of the Master Emerald's power. The prayer has many variations, although its most recognizable version is as following:

The seven Chaos Emeralds are the servers... Our hearts intensify their power... The controller serves to unify the chaos!

Tikal's Prayer describes the relationship between the Chaos Emeralds, Master Emerald and their users. "The seven Chaos Emeralds are the servers" refers to the seven Chaos Emeralds; "Our hearts intensify their power..." refers to the Emeralds' chaos energy and their ability to turn people's thoughts into power; and "The controller is the one that unifies the Chaos" refers to the Master Emerald and its ability to control the Chaos Emeralds.




Tikal's Prayer was known to exist many generations ago, but its origins are unknown. Tikal was a practitioner of this chant, but it was first when she discovered the Master Emerald that she understood its true meaning.Masake, Hiro (2 October 2004). "A Robot Rebels". Sonic X. Season 2. Episode 29.
