In fact, "The Void" had a few gaping plotholes in it, and viability
outside the Void is one of them. Both the King and Naugus began to
crystallize once they were back on Mobius because they had "stayed too
long" in the Void. Ari, however, was able to get out with no ill
effects. As to their means of escape: Sonic can run fast. End of
explanation. His speed is apparently enough to counter the pull into
the Void. Like I said, major plothole.

At the time the stories are being played out, remember, Sally has not
yet "come of age" and won't for another two years (cf. "Drood Henge.")
Assuming it's part of the Mobian constitution, the King would still be
the legitimate power unless someone else were to be appointed as regent
if the King felt he couldn't rule. In any event, Sal's going to have to
be patient.

As for Robotnik, I don't see him surrendering under any circumstances.
A fight to the (real or presumed) death is most likely.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled rodent.
