The Egg Viper is a vehicle that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It was a large battle mech created and used by Dr. Eggman.



In keeping with its name, the Egg Viper is designed after a large flying viper. It has two large red, green and gray spiked wheels on both side of the cockpit. The cockpit itself is covered in thick red and gray armor and has two fins on the bottom, yellow and black hazard stribes horizontally along the middle, a single green and gray fin on top with a red tube on each side, and a large gray laser cannon down the front. Beneath the cockpit's rear is a long red and gray segmented tail which has spikes running down it.
