Ebony first appeared after longtime Chaotix foe, Renfield the Rodent reopened an amusement park previously shutdown by Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, and the Chaotix. Renfield was selling a highly addictive (and poisoned) sauce on his amusement park's food supply, and Ebony Hare was concerned he was "killing the market". After "convincing" Renfield to make a deal with him, the Chaotix arrived at the amusement park investigating Charmy Bee's friend Mello's death due to the sauce. All of the Chaotix were later hospitalized after tasting sauce except for Julie-Su. She later tried to enter Ebony Hare's gang but failed and was almost killed by being thrown off a building by Blackjack. Ebony Hare was about to close up shop for fear of the Chaotix's visit bringing the police. However the Chaotix had tracked him down anyway along with the assistance of Remington and dingo cab driver, Harry. The Chaotix and Remington arrested Blackjack and Foxy while Ebony Hare was detained by Espio the Chameleon when he tried to kill Julie-Su with a revolver. Downtown Ebony Hare was afterwards seen being hauled away by Constable Remington's security forces in a wagon.
