The Egg Spear[1] is a recurring weapon in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are spears used primarily by the Egg Pawn family of the Eggman Empire.

Description

Despite its name, the Egg Spears resemble more the stereotypical lance. They are quite long by comparison, easily over twice an Egg Pawn's height in length. Possessing a long and white, cone-shaped head with a sharp point, they have a large and round orange vamplate and a thin orange and grey grip. Over time, the Egg Spears' vamplates have gotten thicker and their heads have received an orange tip.

Game appearances

Sonic Heroes

The Egg Spears first appeared in Sonic Heroes alongside the Egg Pawns themselves as one of the standard weapons wielded by several Egg Pawns, Solid Pawns and Egg Knights. In gameplay, the enemies attack the player with the Egg Spears by simply charging into the playable characters with them. Touching the Egg Spears, even when the enemies are standing idly by, will harm the player.

In Shadow the Hedgehog, the Egg Spear appeared as a close combat-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player. In gameplay, they are only found in certain Stages, like Sky Troops or Circus Park, where they can be wielded by Egg Pawns who will use them against the player.

Egg Spears can be dropped by defeated enemies that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) makes him attack with them. As a close combat weapon, the Egg Spear is designed for face-to-face combat. A Egg Spear can be attacked with a total of six times and once those tries are spent, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another six attacks by picking up another Egg Spear.

Sonic Colors

In Sonic Colors, the Egg Spear is one of the many weapins utilized by the Egg Pawns, alongside things like cake batters, pick axes, and trumpets. Unlike most other weapons, that only appear in the stage that fits the weapon's theme, Egg Pawns that utilize the Egg Spear appear can appear in any of the stages.

Sonic Generations

Egg Pawns appear once again wielding this weapon. They are seen using it in Seaside Hill, and as always, the range of the weapon is very short.
