Egg Pawns have the body model of an Egg Pawn, but are colored black and gray instead of the typical orange-red. They also wield lances, have knight-like helmets on the top of their heads, and have cyan eyes.
In Sonic Rush, Egg Pawns appear only in Water Palace. Their attack pattern is similar to a regular Egg Pawn; they run at Sonic or Blaze and attack them with their lances. They can be defeated by either a Burst Dash/Spin Dash, Fire Boost/Super Boost or by Axel/Spin jumping on their heads. Also, upon their destruction, they release an Animal.
In the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations, Egg Pawns reappear in the same stage as before. In gameplay, they walk around the area they are patrolling from the left to right and vice versa. When they spot Sonic nearby, an exclamation mark appears above their head before they dash at him with their lance.
They only appear in non-watery areas.
