The Egg Viper is an object that appears in the anime series Sonic X. It was a giant viper-based mech created by Dr. Eggman for the purpose of eliminating Sonic, but was destroyed in their ensuring battle.
In keeping with its name, the Egg Viper is designed after a large flying viper. It has two large red 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 short fin on top with a red and gray tube on each side, and a large gray laser cannon down the front which can slide back to reveal the pilot. On the cockpit's rear are three large red and gray flap-like shields. Beneath these shields are a long red and gray segmented tail which has spikes and red spots running down it.
Powers and traits
The Egg Viper is capable of flight and can fire an intense laser from the cannon on the cockpit. Its tail is also quite powerful, being able to pin down even Sonic for a short while with brute force.
The Egg Viper was created by Dr. Eggman as his secret weapon against Sonic after many of his previous plans were ruined by him. Getting Sonic to meet him for what he saw as their final showdown, Eggman faced the hedgehog in his Egg Viper. After trading a few blows, it seemed like Eggman fled in the Egg Viper. Instead, Eggman caught Sonic off-guard with an ambush from below and pinned him down with the Egg Viper's tail. However, Sonic soon got back up and smashed the Egg Viper with a powerful Spin Attack.
- The Egg Viper in Sonic X is noticeably smaller than its game counterpart; whereas the Egg Viper's cockpit from the games could easily hold the Egg Mobile inside it, this version's cockpit had only just enough room to hold Eggman.
