~ Emerl

Emerl is a character in Sonic the Hedgehog. He was created by the Nocturnus Clan from Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. Claiming to be the Ultimate Gizoid, he was sealed away in the Twilight Cage. 4,000 years later, Doctor Gerald Robotnik found him and tried to deactivate his destructive powers, but fails to do so. Instead, he gives him the same qualities as Shadow the Hedgehog with his granddaughter, Maria Robotnik's soul.

Biography

Sonic Battle

Emerl was a robot that was thrown away by Dr. Eggman and discovered by Sonic and co. Sonic and Tails trained Emerl to become a fighter. In the game, they use Chaos Emeralds to power him up (which Gameplay wise, increased his skills.) and was eventually able to speak. Emerl copies the personalities and abilities of the many that he encountered (Sonic's love for speed, Rouge's love for the Chaos Emeralds, etc.). Towards the end of the game, Emerl fights Dr. Eggman and defeats him. Thinking the Doctor learned his lesson, Emerl turns his back, and Eggman fires the Final Egg Blaster at some nearby stars. Emerl's data and personality were deleted and he became a weapon of mass destruction. Sonic, hoping to bring Emerl back with the Master Emerald, uses a teleporter to the Death Egg and tries to stop him. Emerl is defeated and says his last goodbyes, thanking Sonic for everything. Emerl then blows up, leaving nothing but the Chaos Emeralds behind with him.

Other Media

Sonic X

In the Sonic Battle arc of Sonic X, Emerl is activated by one of the Doctors henchmen, Bokkun. Bokkun activates Emerl to distract Sonic while the Doctor escapes prison. Emerl goes with Sonic and Co. and stays with them, bonding with Cream the Rabbit. As he sees the gang in action, he copies their abilities. Emerl enters a fighting tournament with several other Sonic characters, naturally winning. Emerl wins and absorbs the Chaos Emerald, and his original programming is restored, becoming a weapon of mass destruction. Cream the Rabbit manages to defeat Emerl, but because she defeated a friend of hers, she started to cry. Because that was the last thing Emerl copied, he learned how to cry (his tears were oil in the Japanese version).

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Emerl appears as a sticker that slightly increases all arm-based attacks for any fighter.

Personality

Initially Emerl was a pitiful and unresponsive robot, causing Dr. Eggman to abandon it, he would also makes out words that were barely legible. However when he establishing a link with someone, he's shown to be very obedient to whomever "his master" is.

Throughout the story, Emerl needed Chaos Emeralds to develop. Thanks to Prof. Gerald's emotion-based AI chip, Emerl learned the concept of empathy, as this plays a major role in his development and grows to care for Sonic and gang. In Shadow's story, Emerl expressed sadness at being a weapon of war to the black hedgehog.

Once his old programming kicks in, he becomes a literal killing machine, whose sole purpose is pure decimation. Before his self destruction, he solemnly admits to the time spent together with Sonic and gang.

In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Nestor the Wise admitted that Emerl was the best Gizoid model, but always had a "temper".

Powers and Abilities

Emerl real skill lies in his ability to copy fighting skills either through observation or receiving an attack. Because Emerl is a fighting robot, his physiology allows him an unlimited way of using a vast array of abilities, such as flapping/spinning his arms to mimic flight, stretching its limbs when using Chaos' attacks, pulling weapons out of hyperspace like Amy.

Emerl's inner machination is so complex that even a government owned supercomputer could not access any data, causing it to go haywire.

Once Emerl awakens his old programming, he becomes a near unstoppable force of nature, as he combines all the skills he's learned from Sonic and co. Unfortunately he isn't able to control this power and abilities, which ultimately led to him committing suicide.

Later in Sonic Chronicles, Nestor the Wise mentioned that Emerl is the strongest Gizoid ever crafted by the Nocturnus Clan.

Trivia

  • Even if the player unlocks all of Emerl's Ultimate skills, it's impossible to equip them all, as his skill level caps at 500.
    • The player can only access this feat through cheats like GameShark.
  • In Sonic's story, Emerl stating "Metal" in his speech after Tails fixes him, could imply that Emerl has either met (or at least aware of) Metal Sonic.
  • The ex boss music Nonagression in Sonic Advance 3 is a remixed version of Emerl the Gizoid's theme.
  • Emerl is one of the few last bosses to not encounter and be defeated by Super Sonic.
