Eggman calls down an artillery barrage on the opposing team, potentially leaving them sluggish.

— Description, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood[1]

Bombardment (エッグボム Eggubomu?, lit. "Egg Bomb") is a POW move used by Dr. Eggman in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. When performing this move, Eggman calls down an artillery barrage. This attack is unavoidable, damages all enemies present, and may leave the foe(s) sluggish.


When performing Bombardment, Eggman first slowly walks up in front of the opposing team. He then clasps his hands together and hold them up to the side of his face where does a single clap, which will then call down a rain of small shells on top of the opposing team, which explode upon contact. After doing a victory dance, Eggman then retreats back to his party.

In gameplay, Bombardment deals attack damage to all of the opposing enemies. When it deals damage, Bombardment has a chance of inflicting sluggish on the opposing enemies. This attack will also always hit the opponents, regardless of their stats. The higher the level of Bombardment is, the more attack damage it will deal.

Real-Time Interaction

When performing Bombardment in gameplay, the player has to complete a series of real-time events by performing certain actions on the Touch Screen, in order to execute Bombardment optimally. For these actions, the player has to touch the inside of eight circles in succession when the outer circles overlap the inner circles. Missing or not touching these circles correctly will result in the damage from the attack being reduced.
