The Egg-O-Matic is an object that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a one-person, multi-purpose hovercraft used by Dr. Ivo Robotnik as his personal means of transportation and attack vehicle. The Egg-O-Matic can be fitted with a wide array of weapons and serves as an escape pod when Robotnik's schemes are inevitably foiled by Sonic the Hedgehog. It is Robotnik's most precious machine and any misuse of it would feel his wrath.
The Egg-O-Matic is a mostly spherical, single-person pod. While its upper portion has grey metal plating, its lower hemisphere is black with an thin grey fire exhaust on the bottom and a rocket exhaust on the rear, both for propulsion. It also has three aligned thin vents near the front, an arrow-shaped black and yellow hazard stripe, and two aligned stubby round wings on each side. The front has a single yellow headlight. The insides of the Egg-O-Matic holds a single seat with a steering wheel and a control panel. Additionally, it can be equipped with two mini Egg-O-Matics to its sides, providing seats for Scratch and Grounder. When he built Robotnik Jr., he made a smaller version of it to suit his size.
Features and abilities
As mentioned above, the Egg-O-Matic is able to hover in the air and can move at incredible speeds with great maneuverability, although it cannot compare to Sonic the Hedgehog's speed. The Egg-O-Matic also boasts a highly modular design, able to utilize a wide array of weapon and gadget attachments, like a grabber claw. Its base design also serve as the template for other of Robotnik's vehicles, like the Egg-o-Matic Tunnelizer and Town Terrorizer.
- The Egg-O-Matic's design is based off the Egg Mobile from the original Sonic the Hedgehog. The attachment looks like a smaller version from the Egg Mobile in the Star Light Zone.
