Skip and Sqak
Dante first appeared in the first Crystal eye Skip obtained showing his plan to conqure the whole universe. His plan goes great, but it goes awry when Skip and Sqak destroyed the first ant hive, causing Dante to send more security to the other islands, and he and his army know the duo as "Rebels". Each island begins with a cutscene with Dante, his servant Veger, and new ants that are going to be on that level. Dr. Tron, one of Dante's secret henchman, has difficulties defating Skip and Sqak, so later on, Dante grants permission to tron to use his Hornet 3-64 to destroy the duo at the Moon Base, if Tron fails, Dante will cancel the mascot deal he held with him. So after Tron fails, Dante continues to conqure the universe. Seeing how difficult it is to conqure the world with the "rebels" in the way, Dante had no choice but to vaperize the earth with his Island-Tizar, and conquer other planets. Up on the Tizar, Dante attacks Skip and Sqak who ran from a lava flood in a giant robot of himself, throughout the fight, Dante's robot blows from feet to head each round. In the end, the mecha's head explodes, and leaves Emporer Dante falling to his feiry death in the lava, killing him.
However, despite getting destroyed, his ghost continues trying to destroy the world. If the player gets all gold emeralds, all medals can unlock a gate to the Bonus Dimension. When the duo get to the ghost of Emporer Dante, they engage a fight and ends with the ghost getting destroyed.
