In Sonic Heroes, Amy, Big, Cream and Cheese met each other by chance at the local news publisher. A quick exchange of stories revealed that all three of them were searching for someone; Amy was looking for her missing Sonic; Big was looking for his missing best friend Froggy; and Cream was looking for Cheese's missing twin, Chocola. Furthermore, the only clue they had to their friends' whereabouts was a picture of Sonic with Froggy and Chocola in the local newspaper. As they pondered on their only clue, Amy nearly lost it to a breeze, but Big and Cream got it back. Regrouping, the quartet then set out to find their friends, forming Team Rose.
Starting their search, Team Rose eventually had a run-in with Dr. Eggman and his Egg Hawk. After defeating Eggman, Team Rose followed Amy's hunches to Grand Metropolis. After escaping the local Power Plant, Team Rose found Team Sonic. Amy, determined to make Sonic's hers with force, then had her team fight Sonic's team. However, Team Sonic soon escaped. Arriving in the big city, Team Rose changed tactics: since Team Sonic were hunting Eggman, all they had to do was find Eggman. After overcoming an attack from Eggman's robots, Team Rose came to Rail Canyon. With Big and Cheese sensing that their friends were close, Team Rose headed to Eggman's base. There, Team Rose defeated Eggman and his Egg Albatross. After the fight, however, the team discovered that the Eggman they fought was a copy and Froggy and Chocola were nowhere to be seen. With Amy suspecting Eggman was behind Froggy and Chocola's disappearance, Team Rose left to find Eggman. While later entering and escaping the jungle, Team Rose met Team Chaotix, who they ended up fighting over a misunderstanding. Afterward, Team Rose would enter a haunted castle and escape a mansion before finding Eggman, who attacked them with his robots. Overcoming Eggman's robots, Team Rose traveled to the Egg Fleet, where they found Eggman in his Egg Emperor, whom Team Rose defeated. Though their opponent turned out to be another fake, they found Chocola and Froggy in its remains and had a happy reunion. No sooner, Amy saw Sonic nearby and quickly chased after him.
Not long after, Team Rose, Sonic, Chaotix and Dark united to see Neo Metal Sonic reveal himself. As it turned out, Neo Metal Sonic, who had been impersonating Eggman, was the true kidnapper of Froggy and Chocola and the one staging the teams' adventures so he could copy their data for a plan to conquer the world himself. As Neo Metal Sonic transformed into Metal Madness, the real Dr. Eggman saw the teams had collected all the Chaos Emeralds and got the idea of using the Emeralds against Metal Sonic. Team Rose then volunteered to stall Metal Madness with the others while Team Sonic prepared the Chaos Emeralds. Despite Team Rose's efforts, Metal Madness transformed into Metal Overlord, but Team Super Sonic then arrived and defeated him. After the battle, Amy resume her chase after Sonic, saying goodbye to her team while doing so.
Sonic Chronicles the Dark Brotherhood
In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Team Rose (referred to as Team Amy this time around) were slowly gathered by Sonic early on; Amy met up with Sonic while he made his way through Green Hill Zone; Big joined Sonic's team of allies when they needed him to get through the Mystic Ruins; and Cream joined Sonic's team after they helped her find Cheese. Together again, Team Amy joined Sonic's group on a mission to stop a group called the Marauders after they had stolen the Chaos Emeralds.
Team Amy and their allies eventually found Dr. Eggman, who they believed were in league with the Marauders. However, the doctor claimed that he opposed the Marauders too and that he had been reformed, willing to help Team Amy and the others by leading them into Metropolis where the Marauders were stationed and had drawn Angel Island to with the Chaos Emeralds, which the team accepted. Along the way, they discovered the Marauders were a group of echidnas from the Nocturnus Clan, exiled to the Twilight Cage 4,000 years ago. After entering Metropolis, Team Amy and their allies made it to Angel Island where they assisted Sonic in trying to stop the Nocturnus Clan's leader, Imperator Ix, who sought to rule the world, from stealing the Master Emerald. Despite their efforts though, Ix got away with the Master Emerald and used it to create a wormhole into Sonic’s dimension so the Nocturnus Clan could conquer it.
Having survived Angel Island's fall, Team Amy and their allies came up with the plan of going after Ix into the Twilight Cage and reclaim the Emeralds to stop Ix. Using the Blue Cyclone Tails and Eggman created for this purpose, Team Amy and their friends traveled into the Twilight Cage while Eggman remained behind to watch the wormhole. Inside the Twilight Cage, Team Amy and their allies got five of the Chaos Emeralds back and forged alliances with the alien races in the Twilight Cage. When they prepared to infiltrate Nocturne to find the last Emeralds, the group was able to enter this stronghold with the help from their alien allies. Once they arrived on Nocturne, the group got the last Chaos Emeralds back and Team Amy participated in the final battle against Ix while Knuckles got the Master Emerald back. After Sonic defeated Ix, Ix started to close the wormhole out of the Twilight Cage, but Team Amy and the others got through it just in time. When they returned home however, Team Amy and their friends saw that much time had passed, thus allowing Eggman to build up his forces, which they faced upon exit from the Twilight Cage.
Sonic Free Riders
In Sonic Free Riders, Team Rose appeared to enter the second World Grand Prix hosted by a disguised Dr. Eggman. The team's participation, however, was arranged by Amy in an attempt for her to be close to Sonic, who was in the Grand Prix. Furthermore, the team had not been assembled under the best circumstances: Cream initially came to cheer on Amy but got roped into racing, and Vector had been hired as the team's third member by Amy just a half hour before the opening ceremony. Vector in particular was persuaded to help Team Rose by the 50% cut of the World Grand Prix's crash prize that Amy had promised him if they won.
Despite having not completed their registration, Team Rose met up at the opening ceremony. As they stood to be illegible for competing, Amy and Vector began to bicker. Fortunately, Team Rose were permitted participation. For their first race, Team Rose faced Team Heroes. While Amy remained fixated on Sonic, Cream and Vector focused on their own motivations. After beating Team Heroes, Team Rose advanced to the next round, where they faced Team Babylon, who quickly began trash talking them. Between the races, Team Rose's members had a hard time getting along. Despite this though, they managed to beat Team Babylon and advance to the finals, where their opponents were Team Dark. As the racing challenges progressed, Amy and Vector began bickering again until Cream stopped them. Just as Team Rose beat Team Dark though, Vector blurted out that E-10000B was too damaged to be in the race, meaning their last victory did not count. A rematch was thus issued. Once Team Rose secured their defeat of Team Dark and their tournament victory, Team Rose had a brief victory proclamation before they split up, with Amy going after Sonic, Cream following Amy, and Vector seeing to the grand prize.
During the extra rounds, Team Rose had their own fair share of defeats too. At the end of the tournament, Team Rose and the other teams came to the awards ceremony to collect their prizes, but Eggman made them have a final race against his "ultimate Gear-Jockey robot." After the race, Eggman revealed he had used the Grand Prix to collect everyone's racing data with his E-10000 robots to create the ultimate Extreme Gear for him to use. Eggman subsequently challenged Team Rose and the others to a race. After the teams beat Eggman, Metal Sonic revealed himself as the one controlling E-10000B, and it was discovered that Metal Sonic had given Eggman fake data so he could use the real data to beat Sonic in Extreme Gear riding. After Sonic defeated Metal Sonic in a race though, it was revealed that Eggman never had a prize to give out, upsetting Vector. Amy, however, remarked he should be feeling privileged to have raced with her and Cream.
In Sonic Runners, Team Rose made a few appearances during exclusive Events. During the "Birthday on Windy Hill" event, Team Rose were heading to Sonic the Hedgehog's birthday party when they got kidnapped by Dr. Eggman and his Death Egg drones. Fortunately, Amy managed to escape while Cream, Big and Froggy were freed by Team Sonic. Once Eggman was taken care off, Team Rose came to Sonic's birthday party at long last.
During the "Tropical Coast Event," all three members of Team Rose had come to a beach resort. During their time there, the team met Team Sonic who were tracking down Dr. Eggman. Getting caught up the affair, Team Rose learned Eggman had kidnapped Mother Wisp and planned to turn her evil. They thus joined Team Sonic in their mission and helped them stop Eggman's schemes.
In this game, despite making some appearances together, Team Rose is somewhat divided, with the actual Rose Type characters being Amy herself and Blaze the Cat (filling Big's role as the Power Type for Team Rose) while both Cream and Big are classified as Easy Type members, alongside Silver the Hedgehog.
