~ Robotnik to Major Bennington.

Dr. Robotnik is the main antagonist of the 2020 live-action film Sonic the Hedgehog, which is based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series developed by Sega. He is basically the film's version of Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, the overall main antagonist of the video game franchise. He is the arch-nemesis of Sonic the Hedgehog and Tom Wachowski.

He was portrayed by Jim Carrey, who also played Count Olaf in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Grinch in Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the Cable Guy in the movie of the same name, The Mask in the film of the same name and The Riddler in Batman Forever.


To be added


From the governments description of Robotnik, he is described to be insanely over the top and weird to socialize with, which is why they were so hesitant to use him for getting the job done, but the truth of the matter was Robotnik is an egotistical, self-absorbed, and narcissistic man, who views the idea of having friends to be irrelevant to him and does not like having his authority questioned or challenged in any shape or way. Similar as to how outrageous of a personality his Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog self may be, Dr. Robotnik can get into the zone of his own over the top behavior in having a lot of fun with himself, in doing all sorts of stunts and dancing when creating his prototypes and inventions. 


Robotnik is a tall, lean, slick man with a full head of chocolate brown hair in an undercut style, he also has a large elegant moustache and fair skin. Throughout most of the film, he wears a long black trenchcoat and an all black suit, black boots and specially modified gloves. Later on, he ditches the trenchcoat instead for a red waist length jacket with black and brown accents as well as spandex leggings, he also wears goggles with this outfit.

By the end of the movie, his clothes are in tattered ruins and his hair was gone.



  • While back when the first Sonic the Hedgehog trailer was released it received mostly mixed-to-negative reactions, Jim Carrey's portrayal as Robotnik was well received by most fans, with some even saying that Carrey's Robotnik is actually the only reason for which they would go to see the film. Indeed, once the film was released, Carrey's performance was positively received as well by film critics and audiences.
  • Ahead of the release of Sonic the Hedgehog, Jim Carrey noted the similarities between his portrayal of Robotnik and his portrayal of the Riddler in Batman Forever, feeling that their motivations to become evil came from the sense of neglect and even commenting that he believes that they would make a great team.
  • So far, this is the first-ever incarnation of Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik to not be bald. While all other incarnations have facial hair, there hasn't been anyone with a single hair on the skull.
    • However, he does lose his hair by the end of the film.
