Sangheili Zealot (Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary only)
A Stealth Elite is seen wrestling with Sergeant Johnson over an assault rifle. They abruptly end their fight when they hear a rumble and realize the nearby UNSC Pillar of Autumn is beginning to explode. Johnson then spreads his arms, saying, "Oh shi--" and then, "This is it, baby. Hold me." Before the ship's reactor detonates, the Elite obliges and hugs Johnson, then moves one of his hands to grab his rear just before the screen whites out.
This cutscene, while only viewable on the Legendary difficulty setting, is not considered canon, since it was specifically made as fan-oriented humor. This contention is supported in the novel Halo: First Strike, which reveals that Johnson and a few other survivors boarded a Pelican just in time to escape the explosion, which puts the existence of the Elite to an end.
There is some speculation that the cutscene could be foreshadowing the unlikely alliance between Sgt. Johnson & the Arbiter towards the end of Halo 2. However, there has yet to be any confirmation & therefore is only speculation at this point.
- In Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, the Elite is now a Zealot, does not touch Johnson's rear and is more inclined to hugging him. Now, it looks as if Johnson touches the Zealot's rear and the Elite lifts it's head in surprise.
