Egg Fighter ( is an enemy that appears in the エッグファイター Eggufaitā ) ? . It is a mass-produced Sonic the Hedgehog series Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman, which served as the doctor's primary robot troopers during the Dark Gaia incident.
The Egg Fighters were designed and built by Dr. Eggman, and were made in the greatest quantity of all his models at that time. They possess features that make them very versatile and come in several variations
The Egg Fighters were designed in the image of
Dr. Eggman. They have a torso in the shape of a hemisphere, with four flashlights arranged in a rectangle on their front and a flat cap-shaped head on top of it. They have relatively short legs, with flat feet and circular ankles, and four-fingered arms that extend almost down to the ground. They are colored steel blue and silver, and have purple eyes. However, variations of the units also come in the colors red, orange and silver.
Egg Fighters in the
Xbox 360/ PlayStation 3 version of . Sonic Unleashed
The Egg Fighters made their first appearance in both the
Xbox 360/ PlayStation 3 version and Wii/ PlayStation 2 version of . They are by far the most common enemy in the game, and can be found in virtually every daytime Sonic Unleashed Action Stage/ Stage, as well as several of the nighttime Action Stages on the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version.
In gameplay, the Egg Fighters will attack the player with punches. They are often accompanied by some of the more powerful robots, such as other variants of the Egg Fighters, the
Aero-Chasers and the Interceptor.

. Sonic Generations
In the console/
PC version of , the Egg Fighters are only encountered in both acts of Sonic Generations Rooftop Run and the Challenge Acts tied to them. They also have the same attack patterns as they had in . Whenever they see Sonic, the Egg Fighters strike a pose.
In Rooftop Run Act 1, the Egg Fighters can trigger traps for
Classic Sonic that cause giant barrels to roll over him. These traps can be prevented by destroying the Egg Fighters before they can trigger them. Additionally, in the game's hidden Statue Room, the player can unlock a statue of the Egg Fighter.
While not known to possess any defined personality, the Egg Fighters tend to display quirky behavior, such as striking dramatic poses. Their AI is set to seek out and destroy any blue hedgehog in the area, which usually makes them extremely hostile in the presence of
Sonic the Hedgehog, and they enjoy making fun of him if they hit him. Certain Egg Fighter units, such as EF-MD1991, EF-DC1998 and EF-XB2006, however, have demonstrated distinct personalities of their own.
Powers and abilities
The Egg Fighters possess above average physical strength, enough to move
barrels at least three times their own size and easily carry large steel shields. Certain Egg Fighter units, however, are known to have strength well above the standard units. They also have a degree of hand-to-hand combat skills, being able to engage in it to some effect.
The Egg Fighters have the most versatile set of features of their models, and are able to utilize different kinds of weaponry, such as swords and shields, with different effects. The stronger the Egg Fighter is, the better equipped it is to handle stronger weaponry.
The Egg Fighters' hands are programmed with an autonomous AI and possess a separate operating system, allowing them to function on their own even after the Egg Fighters' main body is destroyed, meaning their hands can detach themselves and become
Little Fighters, to continue fighting when their main body has disabled.
