Rouge works as a covert operative for the President of Station Square, even rescuing him from an assassination attempt by Eggman just prior to the arrival of the Xorda. Rouge had an encounter with Bunnie Rabbot, whom had been sent to rescue her when she was captured by Robotnik. She managed to escape on her own and soon after encounters Bunnie, attacking her when she mistakes her for one of her captor's cronies, resulting in a brawl between the two girls, which is only ended when Sonic steps in and breaks it up, the girls exchanging somewhat half-hearted apologies. She and Fiona Fox are rivals in both fighting and robbery, both having competed in an illegal tournament in which Rouge not only defeated Fiona, but also her teammates Nic the Weasel, Bark the Polar Bear, and Bean the Dynamite.
Knuckles already had a girlfriend named Julie-Su by the time Rouge debuted, but this hasn't stopped her from flirting with him in front of Julie-Su, sparking a rivalry between the two. Rouge has made it clear to Julie-Su that she believes Knuckles will soon belong to her, but she appears attracted to him only because of his good looks and the opportunity he would give her to steal the Master Emerald. Her unwanted advances towards Knuckles only began after he returned from the afterlife during the final battle with the Xorda, in which she participated, because she hadn't met him before that time.
Rouge made a pass at Knuckles' father Locke instead of Knuckles himself in an attempt to get near the Master Emerald, though there was no suggestion that she is romantically interested in the older Echidna as she is with Knuckles. Instead of Shadow the Hedgehog, Rouge then teamed up with Evil Sonic, not knowing the difference between Sonic and his evil doppelgänger, in another attempt to steal the Master Emerald; after Evil Sonic made off with a smaller gem for her, the two flew away to "discuss things in private." They returned not too much later, once again trying to steal the Master Emerald; although the plan failed, Evil Sonic was able to touch the Master Emerald and absorb some of its power. With a new look and a new name, he attacked and easily defeated Locke, only for Rouge to prevent him from killing the Guardian. Rouge then accompanied Scourge as he used Chaos Control to travel to Knothole to challenge Sonic. Despite their defeat and Shadow's pursuit, they managed to escape through a Warp Ring to an unknown location where she unwillingly joined the villainous Echidna scientist Dr. Finitevus, a renegade member of the Dark Legion.
Rouge later reappeared after she stole a Warp Ring to escape Finitevus, who discovered that she had destroyed missiles in his base. She joined the Chaotix, who had placed her under surveillance, and assisted in halting an android-manufacturing scheme Eggman had underway in Casinopolis. Rouge also delivered valuable intelligence concerning Finitevus' activities, including his liberation of the Destructix and his stealing uncorrupted information from Isaac. Not long afterwards, she spread word that she had stolen the Master Emerald and was auctioning it off. This turned out to be a sting operation on her part, which lured in not only several villains but also the Freedom Fighters. Sonic, Sally Acorn, Bunnie, and Antoine D'Coolette fought in a series of battles against Nack the Weasel, Bark, Bean, Ixis Naugus, and Mammoth Mogul that resulted in the capture of all five villains. Confronted, Rouge revealed that the "Master Emerald" she had hidden under a cloth was just a table with a lamp, and that she had planned the whole thing to arrange the capture of the renegade criminals. When asked why she didn't inform the Freedom Fighters of her real plans, she claimed that she worked best alone and that it was an attempt to prove herself to Knuckles.
Rouge was captured by Robotnik during his assault on Knothole and transported to the Egg Grape Chamber with roughly all but a handful of the city's inhabitants. Together with the other prisoners was promptly freed in the ensuing rescue mission orchestrated by Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, and Sally's computer NICOLE. As a result, she was transported to the city of New Mobotropolis by Robotnik's capture beam, which had been reprogrammed by NICOLE to teleport victims to the city. She then participated in a battle with the other Chaotix and Freedom Fighters against Robotnik's Egg Beater. Afterwards, she returned to working with G.U.N., and was reached by Sally through a badly garbled communication requesting aid against the new Enerjak, Knuckles' arch-foe reborn as Knuckles himself. Obliging, Rouge promised the aid of G.U.N.'s newest agent: none other than Shadow the Hedgehog. After the incident, she found Knuckles watching the Chaotix from the concealment of some nearby vegetation, too ashamed of what he'd done as Enerjak to reveal himself to his friends. She then talks him out of his decision to dedicate himself solely to the Master Emerald and cut off contact with the outside world. Rouge then watched as Knuckles rejoined his friends, making comments that suggest she may have had ulterior motives for her talk with the echidna. Whatever her motives, she left Knuckles behind to team up with Geoffrey St. John, the two of them going to Mammoth Mogul's new casino to investigate the recently re-immortalized villain, where it was revealed that she was working for Mogul.
