The Egg Armor is a robot that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). They are advanced models of the Egg Bomber robots, and were created by Dr. Eggman. They served as one of Eggman's main robot groups during the events of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).

Official description

"Egg Armors are advanced forms of Egg Bombers encased in a thicker shell that protects them from enemy attack. These robots can transform between its crab-like shape and a sphere, for increased mobility. It takes several attacks to destroy the Egg Armor when it has collapsed into a sphere."[1]


The Egg Armors were designed to be an advanced model of the Egg Bomber robots. Its regular form is based on the appearance of a crab. Having four legs with a giant pincer in the front of its head (similar to a large horn), the Egg Armors are mostly colored black with gray square-platings covering most of its legs and head-like sphere. Its pincer is colored gray and it has light blue eyes. Egg Armors also have a shield form, which is much more defensive than its crab-like form. It is colored black with gray markings along with orange colored-wires. The upper-top of the sphere is colored light blue.


Being more of a defensive robot, Egg Armors will either be encased in their sphere-forms or will be in their crab-like form, waiting for their target to arrive. During the several seconds they take to reload, the Egg Armors are briefly open to attacks. It takes approximately two attacks to destroy an Egg Armor while in its crab-like form, but while in sphere-form, it takes several attacks to destroy due to its increased defenses.


Dr. Eggman programmed Egg Armor robots to attack any opposing forces that came their way, namely Sonic the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog and Silver the Hedgehog.

Powers and abilities

The Egg Armor robots can transform between their crab-like shape and a sphere, for increased mobility. Egg Armors are excellent climbers, easily moving on horizontal and vertical surfaces, quite similar to an actual crab. They also possess higher durability than the Egg Bombers due to possessing a thicker shell, and by retracting into a sphere, they become impenetrable against attacks. For armaments, they can launch bombs at their opponents.

When a target arrives, the Egg Armors (whilst in their crab-like form) will throw out miniature bombs at their target with several seconds interval between each shot.
