The Egg Vacuum is a suction-type weapon used in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is unlockable by completing the stage Lava Shelter and getting one of the two neutral endings.


It can suck in Rings, crates, small enemies, pull out certain walls, etc. It can suck in a base of twenty objects (excluding Rings). The more objects it sucks in, the larger the "Egg" at the base of the weapon becomes until it bursts.

The Egg Vacuum can be upgraded to level 2 to hold more items or enemies inside it. To upgrade the weapon, the player must complete the same final stage; however, on the final mission, the opposing mission should be completed (i.e. if the Hero mission was completed the previous time, the Dark mission must be completed this time, and vice-versa).


  • This weapon is based on the game Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg.
  • The Egg Vacuum allows Shadow to stay suspended in mid-air without wasting any ammunition, providing there is nothing in the vicinity for it to suck up.
  • Once the Egg Vacuum is full and bursts, it gives Shadow extra lives. If he has the level 2 version of the weapon, he receives three extra lives.
