Doctor Robotnik's Freeze-O-Matic  (, or just フリーザーモービル  Furīzā Mōbiru , lit. "Freezer Mobile") ? Freeze-O-Matic for short, is a vehicle that appears in the  . It is a floating machine with a Sonic the Hedgehog series snowblower created by Dr. Robotnik, who used it during the first part of the Angel Island incident.
Doctor Robotnik's Freeze-O-Matic is a floating vehicle that possesses extra armor and refrigeration tubes. There is an extensible tube below the machine that connects a small
platform with spikes on the bottom and two snowblowers to the vehicle. The Freeze-O-Matic itself also features a snowblower right in front of its tube.
Features and abilities
The Freeze-O-Matic can fly. It is also equipped with
snowblowers that it can use to freeze opponents. Another characteristic it has is that it can extend the tube it has below it.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
, and its lock-on version Sonic the Hedgehog 3 , Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles Dr. Robotnik used the Freeze-O-Matic for an attempt to defeat Sonic and Tails in IceCap Zone. However, his machine was destroyed by the heroes.
Some time later, a re-built Freeze-O-Matic would be piloted by an
EggRobo, who used it for an attempt to eliminate Knuckles in IceCap Zone. However, the machine was destroyed by the echidna.

that fire cold blasts. To destroy this vehicle, the player has to hit it eight times.
Doctor Robotnik's Freeze-O-Matic is the boss of
Icecap Zone in and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 , and the tenth boss overall in these games (or the ninth in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles Knuckles' story in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles). In Sonic the Hedgehog 3, it is battled by Sonic and/or Tails, while in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, it can also be battled with Knuckles.
After arriving in the battle area, Dr. Robotnik will extend the tube with the platform and starts hovering back and forth in the arena. During the battle, the Freeze-O-Matic fires a cold blast in one of three directions: either left or right from the weapon extended out of the machine's bottom, or down from the bottom of the Freeze-O-Matic itself. For a short time after the fight begins, these blasts will occur in a regular pattern from left, then to center, then to right, and later to center, although they will later come in a random order. In some cases, Robotnik will even fire a cold blast downwards twice in succession. If the player gets into the firing line, the playable character will be
frozen. If the player has Tails as their partner, he can release Sonic from the ice prison regularly before he gets damaged.
After landing six hits on the Freeze-O-Matic, the tube of the Freeze-O-Matic will break up. Two more hits are required to defeat it, most easily done from the front. The only real threat to the player at this point is the icy gas leaking out of the back of the damaged Freeze-O-Matic, which still has the same effect as before. After two hits, Robotnik will fly away while the mobile is destroyed.
When playing as
Knuckles in , Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles EggRobo will retract the platform just after firing the icy gas to the sides, making the jumps very hard to execute. Super Sonic can easily destroy the Freeze-O-Matic thanks to his increased jump height (and his invincibility), but when playing as Tails (who has no Super State normally available) the boss must be defeated in a more conventional way.
The English name is based on "Egg-O-Matic", which itself is an early English title for the Egg Mobile.
