The Egg Spear[1] is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are spears used primarily by the Egg Pawns of the Eggman Empire.

DescriptionEdit

Despite its name, the Egg Spears resemble the stereotypical lance more than a spear. They are quite long by comparison, easily over twice an Egg Pawn's height in length. Possessing a white and orange cone-shaped head with a sharp point, they each 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 appearancesEdit

Sonic HeroesEdit

The Egg Spears first appeared in Sonic Heroes 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.

Shadow the HedgehogEdit

In Shadow the Hedgehog, the Egg Spear appeared as a close-quarters combat-type weapon usable by both enemies and the player. In gameplay, they are only found in certain Stages, such Sky Troops and Circus Park. 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 breakable Containers. Touching one will make Shadow pick it up automatically, and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) will make him attack with it. As a close-quarters 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 ColorsEdit

In the Wii version of Sonic Colors, the Egg Spear received a slight update in design. In this game, it is a weapon used against the player by certain Egg Pawns, who will use them for close-up thrusts instead of charging them into the player like in Sonic Heroes. Unlike most other Egg Pawn weapons in this game, the Egg Spears can appear in multiple Areas, regardless of the level theme. There is a different version of the Egg Spear held by the Egg Pawns in Terminal Velocity .
