I am Omega, the ultimate E-Series robot!


— E-123 Omega, Sonic Heroes[5]

E-123 (E-123 Ī Wan-Tsū-Surī?)[note 1], codenamed Ω or Omega (オメガ Omega?), is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a robot created by Dr. Eggman as the last and most powerful of the doctor's E-100 Series line of robots. However, he was deactivated and sealed in an abandoned base to guard Shadow the Hedgehog, who was in suspended animation in a stasis capsule. Furious at having his power wasted in this way, Omega swore revenge on his creator. Rouge the Bat then accidentally reactivated Omega when trying to free Shadow and she soon convinced the two of them to join together as Team Dark to track down their mutual enemy.[6] Although Omega failed to achieve his goal at the end of his team's adventure, he has continued to pursue his mission, occasionally coming to the aid of his allies and other heroes.

Concept and creation[]

Omega was created by Takashi Iizuka at Sonic Team USA while he worked as the director of Sonic Heroes[7] to serve as the Power Type character for Team Dark.

Appearance[]

E-123 Omega's design vaguely resembles E-102 Gamma, while standing out with a sturdier upper body[4] and arms with red eyes instead of green ones. He is also much shorter than the other models and his shoulders are much larger with a red "Ω" on the front of the left and back of the right with red handlebars on the top. Also, instead of the twin exhaust pipes and the Jet Booster of the first E-100 Series robots, Omega has one circling pipe around the waist with two flaps attached and having twin jets installed in his back below the hunch. The stripe running from his head to stomach has also been changed so that it is a separate piece of metal altogether and not simply painted on like the others and he also has one extra finger and two hands with yellow wrists studded with large spikes like a dog collar. Just below his stripe is a plate of clear material that allows others to see some of his inner workings.

Omega's design was changed in a variety of subtle ways during the Solaris incident; His overall look seems to have thinned him out whilst making him look taller. The yellow casing for his "head" was treated much the same and also brought his eyes closer together. His shoulders almost doubled in size and look squarer with defined grooves surrounding his equally larger omega symbol. The central stripe on his chest had been changed from protruding about an inch or two from the rest of Omega's chassis to roughly five inches. The jets on his back were also pointed at a lower angle. The flaps on his sides had also been given grooves, the black arrows seen on his waist pipe and flaps had been removed, the red arrows on the front of his lower leg have been replaced with red stripes, the red section surrounding his torso got split into two pieces and he had sharper and somewhat skeletal hands.

Minor changes were made to his visual appearance in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood such as a smaller casing for his "head," flat shoulders with omega symbols on the front and back of both of them, the flaps hanging from his waist pipe are now thicker and rectangular, the arrows on the front of his waist pipe have been replaced with two slots, the red arrows on the front of his lower legs have been changed to red stripes and a richer yellow was used in his color scheme.

Starting from Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Omega has mostly returned to his original Sonic Heroes design, with the flattened head, further separated eyes and smoother claws, but has retained the clunkier movements of Sonic the Hedgehog though they are not nearly as slow. In some recent games he has shown small differences. A mainstay since Sonic Generations is that his claws are much more detailed with visible mechanical joints throughout each finger. Aside from that, his central stripe has been shown to be visibly thinner and the width of his upper body widened.

Omega was given an alternate look in Sonic Runners as part of a Halloween event. His torso is entirely covered by a jack-o'-lantern with Omega's eyes peering through, all the red sections of his body have been recolored purple except for his omega symbol which is now orange, his wrists are now an orange shade and vines extend from the pumpkin to his shoulders and waist.

The vertical stripe on Omega's chest has differed in color throughout his various appearances. In Sonic Heroes, the stripe is black in his character artwork and on the in-game model in the Nintendo GameCube and Xbox versions of the game. However, it is metallic silver on the in-game model in the PlayStation 2 and PC versions as well as in the pre-rendered cutscenes in all versions of the game. His Sonic Channel artwork, which is based on the art from Sonic Heroes, would feature the black stripe for many years before it was updated to the silver color. Most subsequent games would depict Omega with a silver stripe, with Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood being a notable exception. Another error seen on Omega's models in the console version of Sonic Generations, Sonic Runners (his official artwork does not share this mistake) and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U is that all of his torso is colored red, removing the black section circling below Omega's head.

Personality[]

Omega's only goals in life are to take revenge on Dr. Eggman for wasting his potential and destroy the doctor's other robots to prove himself superior. These two goals are absolute above all else in Omega's eyes. As a result, he tends to be extremely headstrong, reckless, aggressive, and destructive - decimating anything that gets in his way.[8] Most noticeably, before the start of the War to Take Back the Planet, he performed what was supposed to be a recon mission on Eggman's base and rather than sneaking in to get info, he stormed in guns blazing in an effort to purge the base of every robot within, despite his orders having nothing to do with extermination.[9]

Like E-102 Gamma, Omega has a free will and a personality. However, he is considerably less noble than Gamma; while E-102 destroyed only what needed to be destroyed, Omega destroys anything that could possibly pose any kind of threat to himself or his mission.[10] He thinks other Eggman robots are inferior to him,[11] dismissing them as "worthless consumer models," especially the E-2000 models.[12] He hates side tracking especially when it comes to locating Eggman.[13][14]

While Omega, as a robot, is largely emotionless, he is capable of understanding the emotions of others, and reacting appropriately. During the Solaris incident, he showed sorrow and anger when Mephiles revealed that he would be the one who would trap Shadow in the future after the world blamed the black hedgehog for the release of Iblis. It is also possible Omega is superstitious, as he believes in omens such as the appearance of stormy weather, though this might have been because of his scanners picking up a powerful magnetic field.[15]

Omega is fairly loyal and dependable when one is on his good side, a bit of a holdover from his original purpose as a servant, and he is not incapable of looking past differences to forge alliances. He also genuinely cares for Shadow and Rouge as friends and allies and trusts their word over everyone else's. With this said, should Shadow turn rogue and attempt to endanger Rouge's life, Omega will retaliate as shown during Infinite's illusion.[16] Although when Omega reveals he was the one to capture shadow in the future during the Solaris incident he is noticeably upset and clearly feels bad showing he is not incapable is feeling emotions and does indeed care about Shadow. In addition, he will temporarily abandon his vengeful quest against Eggman (or even indirectly work with him) if he detects a bigger threat, as evidenced by his participation in the battles against Neo Metal Sonic or Solaris.

Stereotypical of most robots, Omega tends to use technical sesquipedalian words instead of casual human speech. An example of this is when he uses "negative"[17] or "affirmative"[18] instead of replying with either no or yes respectively. Although he has been known to use typical human speech on a few occasions.[19][20]

IDW Publishing[]

Destroy all Eggman robots! Nature and origin are irrelevant!


— E-123 Omega, Sonic the Hedgehog #19

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. Omega is a warlike and direct robot driven by a single-minded, revenge-based desire to hunt down and destroy Dr. Eggman or any robots created by him. This attitude extends to the point where Omega feels entitled to his destruction.[21] Due to his intense hatred for Eggman, a robotic being's nature and origins are irrelevant: generally, as long as it is a robot created by Eggman, it deserves to be destroyed by his hands. As such, he puts no inhibitions on himself and will not hesitate to bring out brutal, if not deadly force against a perceived Eggman robot.[22] He will similarly take any opportunity to take on and destroy nearly any one of Eggman's creations with glee, no matter what the circumstances might be. However, he allowed himself to make exceptions with robots who aren't working for Eggman, such as Gemerl and Belle.

Omega has frequently shown a preference or even favor of overall more direct and heavy-handed approaches, whether he or his allies are dealing with Eggman's robots or momentary foes, and actively enthuses any plan that involves a physical confrontation. He once admitted that Shadow's direct attack on Clutch was far superior to the element of surprise that Rouge had planned, and he once approved of a plan that meant he would get to destroy his fair share of Eggman robots.[22][23] Omega also shows a sense of deadpan sarcasm at times, having noted when he fought the Zombots in Sunset City that there was "too many targets, not enough bullets". However, this goes almost unnoticed due to his lack of expressive emotions.[22]

Being robotic in nature, Omega speaks using a slightly robotic and computer-based speech pattern, both face to face and when factual. He also talks rather directly and matter of fact-ly. Sometimes, he also displays a slightly macabre mindset, like when he said he would make a "wall of bodies" from the Zombots he fought in Sunset City when Sonic told him to hold the line against the incoming enemies.[22]

Omega seems to shy away from anything resembling amiable behavior, such as refuting being considered Sonic's "friend," objecting to calling fighting alongside Sonic "helping" him, calling verbal support being "patronized" and refusing to show mercy on Zombots that were once innocent civilians and allies.[24][25] He is also incredibly determined, if not stubborn, to the point of where he would rather be destroyed in battle than retreat, recognizing only victory or death, even if he is at a major disadvantage or if his determination leads to his detriment.[26] He also does not recognize any form of help. Additionally, he does not let his setbacks get to him; while he was deduced to only a head during the Zombot apocalypse, he still maintained his belligerent demeanor and thirst for violence.

Powers and abilities[]

An elite combat robot with high fighting capabilities,[27] Omega is the most powerful and impressive robot in Dr. Eggman's E-Series,[6][4][28] and has even been called the world's most powerful robot.[3]

Developed to advance weaponry,[29] Omega's entire body is basically a full-fledged weapon,[27] giving him a huge array of extremely destructive weapons and machines concealed in his arms which he can switch at will by reconfiguring his forearms or hands to execute a variety of attacks.[6][4] These include rapid-fire rotary cannons, flamethrowers, missile launchers, fireball launchers,[4][30] semi-automatic single-barreled wrist cannons for firing pellets, homing lasers,[30][31] powerful miniguns,[31] a double-barreled laser gun that extends from his forearm, drill-shaped missiles, and laser beam cannons that can fire destructive lasers across a wide area. He can likewise retract his hands into their sockets for scooping up Shadow and Rouge in balls and either use them as melee weapons or launch them as fireballs.

Omega appears to be armed with explosive rounds for his machine guns, as evidenced by the damage he caused to the base he was sealed in by only firing for a few seconds.[32] However, certain weapons of his require the use of magazines as opposed to storing all his ammunition in bulk inside himself.[33] While Omega appears to possess some form of targeting systems for his arsenal,[32][34] he tends to be rather inaccurate however, most notably when he fired in every direction when first meeting Shadow with the expectation that some of them would hit.[32]

Hover Sonic 2006

Classified as a Power Type, Omega has demonstrated considerable feats of physical strength that easily rivals the likes of Knuckles, Big and Vector; during the Neo Metal Sonic incident, he was shown being capable of smashing giant boulders and metal with ease using only his fists. Being a robot, Omega is equipped with sturdy body armor[4] too which makes him extremely durable. Notably, Omega easily survived being in Crisis City while in standby mode for collectively two centuries. Omega is also equipped with jet boosters built into his back which he can utilize to help him accelerate and glide just above the ground and even move at speeds rivaling Shadow and Rouge's, as seen during their first adventure. He can also use it to increase the height of his jumps and hover through midair over long distances. In addition, despite what his bulky frame might imply, Omega is also shown to have great reflexes and acrobatic skills, enough to let him do tricks and movements while in mid-air, pull off various Spin Attack maneuvers at high speed, and grind on Grind Rails with ease.

Omega is likewise effective in hand-to-hand combat, able to perform dash punches and spinning back punches. Unlike most other robots, Omega is also able to perform the Spin Attack, a technique where he curls into a concussive ball or cutting disk and directs himself at him targets. With it, Omega can shred or burrow through just about any substance given enough speed. Adept in its usage, Omega can utilize several variants of the Spin Attack for both ground- and aerial maneuvers, including the Spin Dash, Spin Jump, and Homing Attack.

Omega appears to be waterproof as he does not short circuit when submerged in waters like in Frog Forest or Lost Jungle as seen during the Neo Metal Sonic incident. Omega also has scanners that allow him to examine both machinery and living beings based on their acquired ID.[35][36][37] He is also equipped with some kind of built-in sensor that allows him to locate enemies, life forms and various other objects, such as switches.[38][39][40][41][42][43]

As seen during Dodon Pa's Grand Prix, Omega also has excellent skills when it comes to driving and racing in race cars like the Cross Dozer.

IDW Publishing[]

in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. Outfitted as a battle robot, Omega possesses a number of ordinances that he conceals in his arms which he can switch at will by reconfiguring his forearms or hands. Some of these ordinances include rapid-fire rotary cannons and missile launchers.[44][45] Together, these weapons pack enough power to destroy a mecha at the size of Giga Omega in one blast.[45]

IDW 19 Omega Fire

Weapons aside, Omega possesses great physical strength, enough to throw around Zombots like they were ragdolls. His metallic body is also quite durable, but by no means invulnerable, as he was once physically ripped apart by Zombots.[44][46]

Omega's head is equipped with some form of loudspeaker that can be make Omega's voice louder or emit a deafening noise loud enough to serve as a non-lethal weapon capable of disorienting an opponent.[47] Omega also seems to have an independent power source located in his head that allows him to function even without a body.[46] He is also equipped with a range of sensors that allow him to detect such things as the Metal Virus and its rate of infection.[46]

Color Powers[]

Main article: Color Power

By harnessing different variants of Hyper-go-on from Wisps, Omega can use specific Color Powers to transform into a certain form, such as a drill, a laser or even a planet, each one possessing its own unique abilities. So far, Omega has been able to transform into the Cyan Laser, Yellow Drill and Indigo Asteroid. However, these transformations require a steady supply of Hyper-go-on to be maintained.

Weaknesses[]

Omega is known to act before thinking, usually charging head-first into battle without any given strategy.[9] He may also have a faulty or nonexistent targeting system, explaining his reliance on spread-fire weapons and explosives. This is more easily seen during the Neo Metal Sonic incident where he does not even appear to be trying to aim (at least not from an outside point of view).

Omega is also sensitive to and intolerant of areas with high humidity, though the ramifications are not specified.[48]

At the end of a level in Sonic Heroes, Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Omega's torso spins around. It is unknown if it is a glitch in his programming or done on purpose, but may indicate Omega needs a few tweaks, as he has noted.[49]

IDW Publishing[]

in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. Despite possessing a highly destructive arsenal, Omega carries a limited amount of ammunition within him.[50] Omega can be overwhelmed by numbers if the opponent is strong enough.[51]

Relationships[]

Shadow the Hedgehog[]

Omega and Shadow

Omega and Shadow confronting Dr. Eggman, from Shadow the Hedgehog.

Omega was created for the dual purpose of supporting Shadow the Hedgehog, or to deter him from running out of control.[4] At the start of Team Dark's story in Sonic Heroes, after Shadow had woken up from stasis, Omega tried to shoot him, thinking he was one of Eggman's robots. However, Rouge stopped the two and they decided to work together to fight Eggman. Shadow and Omega then became close allies and even friends, with Rouge even saying that the two are so compatible they "go together like chili and hot dogs."[9] In fact, Shadow been known to show concern for Omega's well-being,[52] which is quite odd for Shadow, as he usually keeps a tight lid on his emotions. It is possible that this is because they were both prisoners of Dr. Eggman (in different ways). An example of this camaraderie comes from when Rouge (mistakenly) claims that Shadow is a robot. Omega, despite his relentless goal to eliminate all of Eggman's robots, showed no interest or desire to destroy Shadow. In Shadow the Hedgehog, Omega once again does not attempt to stop or destroy Shadow when Eggman claimed that Shadow was an android that he created,[53] despite Omega's hatred of other Eggman robots. In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Shadow and Rouge encountered Omega in the future in standby mode. After Rouge noted that they could not do anything for him, both of them seemed to show reluctance about leaving him in that state. Also, in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Omega showed anger at Mephiles' hinting of Omega's future betrayal towards Shadow and proceeds to attack him with heavier gunfire. Omega then showed some unhappiness while revealing that his mission in the future was to capture Shadow.

Omega and Shadow also seem to have a friendly rivalry of who is the more powerful, similar to that of Sonic and Knuckles, with Omega believing the title belongs to him.[54] Technically, Omega is right in the fact that he has more physical power than Shadow, but which of the two is the better fighter is not confirmed. Shadow is the ultimate life form, but Omega is not a life form and refers to himself with a similar title as the ultimate robot, so it can be a toss-up. They seem to be evenly matched in their only battle when they first meet in Sonic Heroes, but it is revealed in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) (as well as implied in Sonic Heroes) that Omega was made to contain Shadow from escaping Dr. Eggman's base where he was being held and actually captured Shadow in the future, so it is possible that Omega could defeat Shadow like he did in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), though it is open to debate about whether he did this on his own or whether there were other factors involved, notably Shadow likely holding out on his friend. Whatever the case, Omega very much respects Shadow's abilities, stating they exceeded even his initial expectations when they first became allies.[55]

Shadow is one of Omega's trusted team members on Team Dark. Shadow knows he can count on Omega to do his job to the best of his ability, leaving the two on good terms. Omega similarly respects Shadow and accepts his plans, which he usually likes better than Rouge's.[56][57] However, he will not hesitate to fight Shadow should he become hostile; when Shadow became a Zombot, Omega was ready to destroy him despite their good relationship.[58]

Rouge the Bat[]

Rouge the Bat is a close ally and friend of Omega, who is quite loyal to her. She has sometimes shown annoyance at Omega, saying that he is too serious, and she is tired of hearing him ramble on about revenge and hatred. She also dislikes it when Omega ignores her orders and acts on his own destructive tendencies.

They first meet in Sonic Heroes after Rouge stopped Shadow and Omega from destroying each other long enough to hear both their stories. She convinces the two of them to join forces to find Eggman since that is their united goal. While searching for the doctor, Rouge becomes fond of the robot, and they become fast friends. Omega even lets her sit on his hand during their victory poses. Rouge does show a weariness of Omega's serious and vengeful nature[14] and having to hear him ramble about it constantly. While Rouge definitely trusts Omega, it seems she sometimes has too much faith in him. During his "infiltration mission" into Eggman's lab, Omega proceeded to go in guns blazing, despite Rouge's protests on the radio and became very worried when Omega called in reporting he had no idea where he was after encountering Infinite.[9] And despite the robot's intimidating assortment of weaponry, she is definitely not above teasing him about his grandstanding, and while Omega seems annoyed he does not hold any grudges against her. Whatever the case, Omega very much respects Rouge's abilities, stating they exceeded even his initial expectations when they first became allies.[55]

Rouge is one of Omega's comrades on Team Dark. Although Omega can be stubborn and tactless, he will go along with Rouge and listen her plans if the situation allows him, even though her plans involve less of the violence that Omega craves.[59]

Dr. Eggman[]

Doctor Eggman, I will destroy you and reign supreme!


— E-123 Omega, Shadow the Hedgehog

Dr. Eggman is both Omega's creator and greatest enemy. Omega is constantly trying to get revenge on the doctor for imprisoning him and will do whatever it takes to prove himself superior to Eggman's other machines.[6] However, Omega has passed up his feelings of revenge when he is needed to take out a bigger threat, such as Neo Metal Sonic and Solaris.

Once regarded as one of his strongest robots, Omega became wayward and began to oppose Eggman and everything he created. As such, he has been passionate about his vengeance, wanting to destroy Eggman and all his robots, no matter what their nature or origin may be. Due to this, Eggman continually began to treat Omega as one of his many enemies. Omega always makes it clear how much he wants to destroy Eggman, but the doctor does not take him that seriously.[60][61][62][63]

Metal Sonic[]

SonicHeroesMetalSonicShadowOmega

New target acquisition! Sights locked on... Metal Sonic!


— E-123 Omega, Sonic Heroes.

The two might have only met once but the fact that Metal Sonic is one of Eggman's robots indicates that he and Omega are definitely enemies (even going far enough for Omega to pass up his feelings of revenge on Eggman).[64]

They first met in Sonic Heroes after Omega finished destroying a room full of Shadow Androids, where Omega helped to defeat Metal Sonic after he turned into the Metal Overlord, along with his fellow team members. He is later seen exchanging looks with Shadow and holding a deactivated Metal Sonic in his arms.[65] It is unknown what they did with Metal Sonic afterwards, but he was eventually back in the hands of Dr. Eggman and reprogrammed back into servitude.

It seems his distaste for Metal Sonic is still strong. During the final push against Infinite's Phantom Copies, Omega can be seen shooting down a Metal Sonic Phantom Copy flying by, ignoring closer targets.

Mephiles the Dark[]

Screenshot-0

Mephiles the Dark was one of Omega's greatest enemies, (possibly coming second to Eggman himself). They first met when Omega saved Shadow by distracting Mephiles with his machine guns in Flame Core after coming out of standby mode in Crisis City.[66] They then engaged in battle and Omega and Shadow proved victorious. Mephiles then escaped to the present with Shadow and Omega in hot pursuit.[67] Mephiles escaped, but Omega and Shadow kept looking for him.[68]

Omega later found and defeated Mephiles once again in Wave Ocean. Mephiles then revealed to Omega that he knew that he was the one responsible for imprisoning Shadow in the future. Enraged by this, Omega proceeded to attack Mephiles with his machine guns. He then revealed this information to Shadow and Rouge.[31]

Omega then set off with the other members of Team Dark into Dusty Desert, determined as ever to seal Mephiles before he can merge with Iblis.[69] He and the others arrived too late, and then engaged Mephiles in a final showdown.[70] They proved victorious yet again, but they failed to seal Mephiles using the new Scepter of Darkness. Mephiles then created an army of copies of himself, and Team Dark destroys them (presumably) while Mephiles escapes.[71]

Later, Omega and the others were transported[72] to a time-space rift by Solaris along with Silver, Amy, Tails, Knuckles, Eggman, Princess Elise, and Sonic's lifeless body. Omega then helped the others retrieve the Chaos Emeralds to save Sonic's soul[73] by searching for one of them in Flame Core. He later watched Sonic come back to life,[74] and remained on a monument transported from Soleanna as Super Sonic, Super Silver and Super Shadow erase Solaris from existence, thus erasing Mephiles from existence as well.[75]

E-Series[]

Omega harbors a deep hatred to all of the E-Series robots, (especially the E-2000 which Eggman began working on shortly after shutting Omega down).[12] Omega is determined to destroy all the E-Series and any other of Eggman's robots[76] which he dismisses as "worthless consumer models".[77]

E-100 series[]

The E-100 Series are Omega's predecessors. Although he has never actually been seen with any of his "brothers," Omega does indicate that he knows of their existence and he thinks them as his inferiors (but might harbor some form of acknowledgement of E-102 Gamma and E-101 Beta).[78] It is unknown if he bears any hatred towards them, but it's unlikely, partly because they've all been destroyed.

Sonic and friends[]

Sonic Heroes Cast

Omega with Team Sonic, the rest of Team Dark, Team Rose, Team Chaotix, and Eggman, from Sonic Heroes.

Although Omega has worked with Sonic and co. on numerous occasions, he only usually helps them when there is a greater threat that he wants to deal with. He does not think much of Sonic and his team. He lacks any real relationship with any of them and it is likely some of them do not even know who he is, while Omega has not gone out of his way to introduce himself.

His first interactions were when he fought Teams Chaotix and Sonic in Sonic Heroes. Interestingly, Omega had no knowledge of Sonic at that point, simply referring to him, Tails, and Knuckles as a group of "Shadow-like creatures."

In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Omega helped recover the Chaos Emeralds in order to bring Sonic back to life. This shows that Omega may in fact hold Sonic in some form of respect, but he could have also helped recover the Emeralds just because Shadow and Rouge were doing so. Omega would later find himself interacting with Sonic after the blue hedgehog bargained for the lives of Orbot and Cubot. Surprisingly, Omega agreed to spare them but only in return for physical specification data on Sonic to upgrade himself with.

In Sonic Forces, Omega was rendered non-functional thanks to a battle with Infinite and had been left deactivated in the City for six months. He was found by Tails, and the young fox tried his best to repair him but was unsuccessful as the damage was too much. He apologized to the robot's lifeless husk, calling him "buddy," but was prevented from trying further due to the arrival of both a Phantom Copy of Chaos 0 and Classic Sonic. It is unknown if Tails' repairs had any part in Omega being restored later in the game.

Sonic the Hedgehog is an ally to Omega, should he consider it in certain scenarios. However, he has clarified that he does not reciprocate their relationship, no does he consider him a friend, having openly declared him an obstacle in his warpath. While Omega is often subject to Sonic's jokes or comments, Omega will disregard him entirely with his bleak sense of unconventional remarks or matter of thought. They often do not get along well either, and their views on how to treat Zombots are as far apart as day and night. Omega's stubbornness likewise makes him refuse to listen to Sonic's requests, nor does he want to be patronized by him.[79][80][81]

In Sonic Frontiers, Omega quickly came to the mind of Sonic the Hedgehog when he saw some of the Ancients' impressive weaponry, claiming Omega would be "jealous".

G.U.N.[]

Omega seems to lack any negativity towards G.U.N. and does not seem to want anything to do with them, such as in the game Shadow the Hedgehog, where he tells Shadow to ignore the G.U.N. robots in the Iron Jungle stage (it is unknown if this was because he was more concerned with finding Eggman as he indicated[82] or actually cared about them being destroyed). However, he does seem to look down on human government affairs and sees them as a nuisance (if anything), actively telling Shadow not to even bother with them.[83] In Sonic'06 he is even shown to be working for G.U.N. alongside the rest of Team Dark.

Infinite[]

SonicForces Comic LoomingShadow P4

Omega facing Infinite, from Sonic Forces: Looming Shadow.

During their first encounter, Omega simply viewed Infinite as someone who stood in the way between him and Eggman and tried to eliminate him as an obstacle. After Infinite nearly destroyed him via the Phantom Ruby's Power, however, Omega developed a grudge against Infinite that was at least as strong as that of Eggman, as his first action upon rebooting himself and joining the Resistance in their climactic fight against the Eggman Empire was declare his intent to exact revenge against Infinite.

Gemerl[]

Gemerl may be a puny, inferior model, but he still possesses the lethality of a warrior. This unit acknowledges and accept his current modus operandi.


— E-123 Omega, Sonic the Hedgehog Annual 2022

Omega and Gemerl share a similar origin, as both are creations of Eggman that turned rogue. After being repaired, the two engaged in a sparring match where Omega found Gemerl weak, thinking his affinity for Cream's family turned him soft, with Gemerl losing his edge. During the battle, Omega would invite Gemerl to join him in his quest to destroy Eggman's forces and restore his honor as a battle robot. Gemerl would reject this proposal, as he was created to evolve unlike Omega's purpose for destruction, and that his past objectives don't define who he is in the present. After their battle, both robots would end up heavily damaged and in need of repairing. Omega would acknowledge Gemerl's current purpose and respect his destructive power, even if he still found himself superior to him.

  1. This is how Omega, in the Japanese version of the game, read his name in Sonic Forces. In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), it is read by Rouge the Bat as イーひゃくにじゅうさん (Ī Hyaku Nijuu San?).

E-123 Omega was the most impressive of Dr. Eggman's E-series robots until the mad genius confined him to his secret base. E-123 Omega became so frustrated at the imprisonment that he destroyed all of Eggman's other robots and vowed to take revenge on his creator.
