The EggRobos, also spelt Eggrobos, are recurring major antagonists in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. They are egg-shaped robots that first appeared in the video game Sonic & Knuckles, along with Sonic 3 & Knuckles. They are designed in the likeness of the infamous Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, intended to surpass even his strongest creations, including Metal Sonic. One of them was the archenemy of Knuckles the Echidna before being unintentionally destroyed by Mecha Sonic.
An EggRobo appears as a major antagonist in Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, being the central antagonist for Knuckles' campaign, and an elite group of EggRobos known as the Hard-Boiled Heavies serve as the secondary antagonists of Sonic Mania.
EggRobos first appear as normal enemies in Sky Sanctuary, but after the fall of the Death Egg and the defeat of Dr. Robotnik, a single EggRobo survived the destruction, and took the place of Robotnik while he was recovering from his defeat.
The surviving EggRobo then found Knuckles the Echidna, who was resting in Angel Island, and attempted to kill him on the spot by throwing a bomb next to him. Knuckles fortunately survived the attack, and chased after the EggRobo, who continued to torment him throughout the game. Knuckles confronted the EggRobo in various locations, only for EggRobo to escape after being hit eight times.
The EggRobo eventually ceased going after Knuckles after their battle in Sandopolis up until Knuckles reached Sky Sanctuary, where the EggRobo appeared again for the last time with a giant claw under its Eggmobile, which was used to pick up Knuckles and take him to Mecha Sonic, whom EggRobo was revealed to be working alongside. The latter holds Knuckles in place for the former to finish him off.
This backfires as Knuckles escapes EggRobo's grasp, leading to Mecha Sonic unintentionally destroying its own partner instead of Knuckles. With EggRobo destroyed, Mecha and Knuckles face off in a final showdown.
The EggRobos reappeared in Sky Sanctuary Zone as enemies of Classic Sonic.
An elite group of EggRobos known as the Hard-Boiled Heavies appear as the secondary antagonists of the game, however a few ordinary EggRobos appear during the Heavy Gunner's boss fight, and are required to be taken down before attacking the Heavy Gunner himself.
Super Smash Bros.
EggRobos appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS as both enemies in the Smash Run campaign and one of the game's various collectable trophies.
In the Archie Comics, EggRobos were originally created by Snively who designed them as a mockery of his uncle Dr. Robotnik. Although Snively claimed they were built as mining robots, he secretly used them to do his dastardly bidding. However, they were eventually destroyed by his enemies. The history of EggRobos were forever changed from the aftermath of the Super Genesis Wave. In this continuity, their history is similar to their video game counterparts.
Powers and Abilities
EggRobo was created to be Eggman's strongest creation yet, outmatching even his greatest creations, including all of the Metal Sonic series models combined. The EggRobo failed to live up to the doctor's expectations, but thanks to it's egg-shaped body, It ignores air resistance, allowing it to reach speeds almost greater than that of Metal Sonic, Robotnik also boasts of the offensive abillities that EggRobo has, meaning that EggRobo is one of, if not the greatest invention of Eggman yet, aswell as being his robotic equal.
