The Death Egg Robot sentinel,[1] or simply the Death Egg Robot,[2] is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a giant, mass-produced variant of the Death Egg Robot created by Dr. Eggman.


The Death Egg Robot sentinels are designed after the original Death Egg Robot, but several times larger, being over three times the size of an apartment building. They have egg-shaped bodies with a narrow pelvis each, stubby and heavily armored legs, thin arms with cone-like forearms, thick gauntlets, cap-shaped shoulders attached to bars rather than sockets, three straight spikes for fingers and jet packs on their backs. They also have triangular markings on their chest (which are similar to those on Eggman's original jacket) and dome-shaped heads. Unlike the original robot though, the faces of the Death Egg Robot sentinels are almost blank, with the exception of a single red eye and a red field for a mouth. They are also completely gray and black with glowing red outlines.

Game appearances

Sonic Forces

In Sonic Forces, after Dr. Eggman finally conquered the world,[3] a number of Death Egg Robot sentinels would lay siege to a city that Sonic passed through, during which they came under attack by unknown forces.[1]

Team Sonic Racing

In Team Sonic Racing, one of the Death Egg Robot sentinels appear in Frozen Junkyard racetrack as an obstacle. It will attempt to shoot any oncoming racers with laser beams from its eyes. After this sequence, the racers drive inside of the Death Egg Robot sentinel and drive through a loop in its interior before driving back out towards the finish line. Another Death Egg Robot sentinel appears in Dark Arsenal being constructed.

In the story mode of the game, a small Death Egg Robot sentinel appears as a racer for one of Dr. Eggman's various racing teams for the final race.

Powers and abilities

Due to their sheer size, the Death Egg Robot sentinels are incredibly strong and tough; one unit can easily topple buildings single-handed and withstand a barrage of shots from a number of laser turrets being fired on it from various angles by Resistance forces.[1] They can also fire powerful lasers from their eyes.[4]


The Death Egg Robot sentinels' eye sensor are weak to direct hits, which Sonic and the Avatar exploited during their encounter with one of them at Red Gate Bridge.
