— Master Overlord, Sonic the Hedgehog #10

Master Overlord[1] is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series published by IDW Publishing. It is the final form of Neo Metal Sonic, achieved through powering up with the combined power of Sonic and Shadow's biodata, as well as the Master Emerald.


Master Overlord is a dragon-like entity of massive size, dwarfing even the Master Emerald's shrine. He has head armor similar to Neo Metal Sonic's, but with his quills combed more backwards, and he has two red eyes with black sclera aligned vertically on his face. Also, instead of a muzzle, he has a mouth with sharp teeth and red gums. He also has a long gray neck, a chest resembling a blue jet engine with a yellow and black intake, a thin gray spine for a torso section, and a blue pelvis that the Master Emerald is embedded in. Attached to his pelvis are four long, knife-like "legs". He also has a long purple and lavender-striped tail with two axe-like blades at the tip. Also, attached to both sides of his pelvis is a blue fin-like section, each one having three gray metallic wings with long knife-like feathers attached to them. He also has two arms, each of which is mostly made up of a gray cable with a thick blue gauntlet at the end. He also has four-fingered, round dark gray hands with knife-like gray fingers. Also, around each of his shoulders are two blue fin-like sections. Those fins closest to his torso also have three long gray spikes protruding upward from each of them.


The Battle for Angel Island


Master Overlord transforming, from Sonic the Hedgehog #10.

As part of his scheme to expand the Eggman Empire in his master's absence, Metal Sonic hatched a plan to use the power of the Master Emerald and the bio-data of Sonic the Hedgehog and Shadow the Hedgehog to transform in the Master Overlord.[1] Having already copied Sonic's bio-data from an encounter on the Egg Fleet,[2] Neo Metal Sonic took the next step by having the Egg Fleet successfully invade Angel Island in Knuckles the Echidna's absence.[3] After that, he simply lay in wait atop the Master Emerald until Sonic and Knuckles arrived, transforming into Super Neo Metal Sonic.[3][4] He had both of them on the ropes, until Shadow eventually appeared and reverted Neo Metal Sonic back out of his Super State. Neo then copied Shadow's bio-data and using the Master Emerald's power finally transformed into the Master Overlord.[1]

Powers and abilities

In this form, Metal Sonic is implied to be even stronger than Super Neo Metal Sonic.[1]
