For the enemy in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) with same name, see Egg Keeper (Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)).

The Egg Keeper (エッグキーパー Eggu Kīpā?)[1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic Adventure. It is a massed-produced E-100 Series[1] model created by Dr. Eggman.


Egg Keepers bear many key similarities to the other units in the E-100 Series, including an egg-shaped body and flat head. Instead of legs, they have a hover engine on the bottom of their torsos. They also have long, spear-like arms with sharp, white ends. Beneath their head plates, they have a flat head and a pair of cyan eyes.

Game appearances

In Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, Egg Keepers appear in the following Action Stages for each character:

Character Action Stage
Sonic Final Egg
Amy Hot Shelter, Final Egg
Gamma Final Egg, Hot Shelter

In gameplay, Egg Keepers appear either alone or in groups. They normally remain still until the player gets nearby, upon where they fling their craniums off like saucers. These saucers will hover around overhead, sweeping the ground with a stun laser. Get caught in the laser and the playable characters will get paralyzed for a few seconds, allowing the Egg Keeper to rush in and attack them. Egg Keepers can only be destroyed with the Spin Jump, Homing Attack, Hammer Attack or gun fire when their heads are detached: get too close when they are whole and they will simply knock the player away with their arms.

Sonic Rivals 2

In Sonic Rivals 2, the Egg Keeper appears as a collectible card. This card can be collected after getting the high score in battling the Egg Phantom at Mystic Haunt Zone.
