While in captivity, Mogul somehow used Naugus to protect himself from the Egg Grapes' effects, also resulting in Naugus completely losing his mind and becoming an idiotic beast. But A.D.A.M. freed the two (in exchange for Mogul's Chaos Emerald) and they escaped New Megaopolis. Later, Mogul got wind of Rouge the Bat having the Master Emerald and decided to go after it with his new mindless minion, not knowing it was just a ploy. But the two ran into the Freedom Fighters and although Naugus tried to use his new ability to Shadowmeld to defeat them, he was easily defeated by Bunnie Rabbot. He was then sent to Knothole Prison along with Mogul, Nack the Weasel, Bean the Dynamite, and Bark the Polar Bear.
Not long after, Naugus and his fellow prisoners were captured by the Egg Fleet when it attacked Knothole, resulting in Naugus being sent back to the Egg Grapes. But Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, and Amy Rose broke out all of Eggman's prisoners, including Naugus and the others. When everyone was sent to New Mobotropolis, Nack, Bean, and Bark joined Mogul and Naugus and they attempted to take over the city, but were simply teleported to it's prsion by NICOLE. Naugus later watched Sonic's fight with Tails.
Shortly after the campaign of the second Enerjak, Mammoth Mogul concocted a plan to free himself and his minions. Revealing that he had over the years placed post hypnotic suggestions in several heroes - Tails, Mina Mongoose, and Mighty the Armadillo - Mogul took control of them and had them attack Sonic. When he proved too strong for them, Mogul sent them all into danger and threatened to force them to die unless Sonic brought him a Chaos Emerald he had acquired from Feist. Reluctantly obeying, Sonic brought Mogul the Emerald, and Naugus was freed along with his fellow prisoners. The group then disappeared, Mogul having decided that he would not attempt global domination again until Sonic was dead or too old to oppose him.
