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 a nemesis of Knuckles the Echidna before being destroyed by Mecha Sonic.
An EggRobo appears as a major antagonist in Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, appearing as the central antagonist of Knuckles' campaign, and an elite group of EggRobos known as the Hard-Boiled Heavies appear as the secondary antagonists of Sonic Mania, and Sonic Mania Plus.
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 sought to avenge it's master, who 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 bring him to Mecha Sonic, Robotnik's right-hand robot.
EggRobo restrained Knuckles so that Mecha Sonic could do the honors, but it backfired when Knuckles managed to escape EggRobo's grasp, leading to Mecha accidentally destroying EggRobo while aiming for Knuckles. Mecha Sonic then attempted to avenge EggRobo by fighting Knuckles head-on, thus initiating the final showdown between Knuckles and Mecha Sonic.
With the last two remnants of Robotnik defeated, Robotnik's presence was gone from Angel Island forever, and the island was peaceful once again.
The EggRobos reappeared in Sky Sanctuary Zone as enemies of Classic Sonic.
EggRobos once again have a prominent role in Sonic Mania. They do not appear as regular enemies, but instead a group of elite EggRobos titled the Hard-Boiled Heavies play a central role in the story. However, there are a few moments where regular EggRobos are seen, although they lack the intelligence and sentience of the Hard-Boiled Heavies.
During the Heavy Gunner's boss fight in Studiopolis Zone, four EggRobos appear as the Heavy Gunner's henchmen. They are required to be taken down before the Heavy Gunner himself.
In the Titanic Monarch Zone, the last zone of the game, EggRobos appear as drivers of high-speed vehicles that move on rails. When hopping on these vehicles, the EggRobo takes the player for a ride, crashing into the end of the rail. The player does not get damaged from this, however.
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, here called EggBots, 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 EggBots were forever changed from the aftermath of the Super Genesis Wave. In this continuity, their history is similar to their video game counterparts.
In the comics by Fleetway Editions, an army of EggRobos appeared during the Sonic & Knuckles adaptation. Here, they were controlled by Robotnik through his control room aboard the Death Egg II. Robotnik could see everything and talk through them, but there were a few models without the control of Robotnik, such as the one Knuckles chased down, who was running low on organic battery and tried to capture a young bear named Jake. Knuckles chased this EggRobo throughout various zones attempting to free Jake from the EggRobo, and finally confronted it in Lava Reef, where Knuckles barely won, but still managed to free Jake from the EggRobo and destroy it, thus saving the day.
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.
