The Egg Carrier is a vessel mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was a large airship created by Dr. Eggman, and an important transport for the doctor during an attempt to conquer Station Square. The Egg Carrier was crewed by Eggman and various robots, including the first E-100 Series robots. The original Egg Carrier fell into the ocean after a mighty battle.
The Egg Carrier was used by Dr. Eggman and was crewed by Eggman and various robots, including the first E-100 Series robots, notably E-102 Gamma. Eggman first used the Egg Carrier to find and destroy the Master Emerald at Angel Island in order to free Chaos. After succeeding, the Egg Carrier landed in its Final Egg base in Mystic Ruins for later usage. This usage came when Eggman brought the Egg Carrier to the place where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles battled Chaos, and then picked up Eggman and Chaos with a tractor beam. Sonic and Tails followed it with the Tornado, but the plane was shot down. The Egg Carrier then flew over Station Square, scaring the inhabitants. It then flew back to Final Egg, where it was infiltrated by Knuckles and Big the Cat, as pieces of the Master Emerald and Big's friend, Froggy, were located on it.
It then took off again and picked up a robot that had kidnapped Amy, and was subsequently chased through a storm by Sonic and Tails in their new Tornado 2. This time the heroes managed to land on the Egg Carrier, where Eggman challenged them to get through the ship. the ship started losing altitude so Tails, Amy and Gamma fled the ship. Sonic stayed to find Eggman, which he did, along with Chaos. Sonic, Knuckles and Big all fought and defeated Chaos, and everyone fled the ship as it crashed into the ocean below and started floating on the surface. Gamma later came back to the floating vessel in order to defeat his brothers, E-105 Zeta and E-101 Beta, which he did. Finally, Amy also came back to look for the relatives of her bird friend. She battled ZERO and defeated him. After Sonic destroyed the battle ship, a second Egg Carrier was later deployed against Perfect Chaos, but was easily destroyed.
