E-102 Gamma's Data Log, From the Databanks of E-102 Gamma

E-101 Beta is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was the second unit in the E-100 Series robotic group created by Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. E-101 Beta was one of the first E-100 Series robots created, specifically during the time of when Eggman harnessed the power of Chaos.


The original four E-100 Series units (from left to right): Beta, Espilon, Delta, and Gamma, from Sonic the Hedgehog #81.

Created in the year 3236 by Dr. Eggman inside the Egg Carrier, E-101 Beta was the second unit of the E-100 Series. Along with three of his "brothers"–E-102 Gamma, E-103 Delta, and E-104 Epsilon–Beta was assigned to a competition to see which E-100 Series robot can retrieve Froggy (the entity that contained the "tail" of Chaos).[1] However, Beta did not accomplish the mission, bringing in a regular lizard. It was Gamma, however, that brought Froggy and won the contest.[2] Eggman then sent the other E-100 Series robots away from his sight.[3]

Sometime later, Beta was remodeled into E-101 Mark II and was assigned to an outpost. However, Beta was later destroyed during combat with Gamma.[4][5]

Powers and abilities

Because not much is known about E-101 Beta, its arsenal has not been fully shown. However, it does have a Jet Booster, allowing it to fly in the air, along with a twin missile cannon on its left arm.


  • Unlike its video game counterpart, E-101 Beta was incorrectly depicted with a purple color scheme instead of a black one in the Pre-Super Genesis Wave timeline (replacing E-105 Zeta in terms of color design). It was also given the incorrect model type (one twin missile cannon rather than two).
