- For the version of this object after the Super Genesis Wave, see Egg Mobile (Pre-Super Genesis Wave).
The Egg Mobile is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the personal transport craft employed by Dr. Eggman in his efforts to conquer Sonic's World. It can be fitted with weaponry or even attached to other vehicles to enable the doctor to battle various enemies, most often Sonic the Hedgehog.
The Egg Mobile has taken several forms, but its general appearance is a spherical design with an overall bare metal paint scheme with black on the bottom third of the craft (sometimes with a lateral band of black and yellow hazard stripes) with a single headlight on the front.
Features and abilities
As mentioned earlier, the Egg Mobile is a hovercraft designed to carry a single person. It has a highly modular design, able to utilize a vast array of weapon attachments. The craft can also act as a command module for larger machines. When these craft are inevitably defeated, the Egg Mobile then serves as an escape pod, allowing the pilot to eject mostly unharmed from the larger machine. Though, in all cases the structural integrity, the Egg Mobile has proven to not be very reliable as a single strong hit from an impact like Sonic’s spin dash maneuver was usually enough to destroy the vehicle or cause it to crash. More recently, the Egg Mobile has also been put into service as Eggman's seat on the bridge of the Death Egg. He can also undock it and fly it outside of the Death Egg when he wishes to personally oversee operations.
Vehicle of evil
The Egg Mobile served as Eggman's personal transport throughout his early battles with Sonic the Hedgehog and the Freedom Fighters. This included usage on South Island, where one is known to have been piloted by Coconuts and Julian Snively as well, and Westside Island. Eggman also utilized it in his machinations on Little Planet and Angel Island, notably using it to steal the Master Emerald from Knuckles the Echidna. Eggman would go on to pilot the Egg Mobile in his schemes surrounding Chaos. A walker version was utilized by Eggman when he worked alongside Shadow the Hedgehog and Rouge the Bat against Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails, and Metal Sonic even utilized one during his impersonation of Eggman. Dr. Eggman Nega also utilized an Egg Mobile of his own during his team up endeavors with Dr. Eggman against Sonic and Blaze the Cat.
Countdown to Chaos and the Shattered World Crisis
- Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where the Egg Mobile's original timeline ended.
After being ejected from a previous timeline and crash-landing in the Efrika Plains in the remains of the Egg-Wily Machine X, Eggman salvaged his damaged Egg Mobile from the wreckage and set out to return to his Death Egg. Incapable of flight, the Egg Mobile was rolled until the Efrika Egg Army located Eggman, Orbot, and Cubot, who were then taken back to the Egg Army base with their damaged craft in tow. A quick overhaul made it flight capable once again, allowing Eggman and his minions to travel to the Eurish Egg Army's headquarters, which he found under attack by a G.U.N. carrier. Converting the Egg Mobile into a walker mech, Eggman used it to attack and sink the G.U.N. carrier, sacrificing it in favor of a fighter jet.
- The Egg Mobile is based on the craft first piloted by Dr. Eggman in the original Sonic the Hedgehog.
