The Mech Dragon[1] (エッグドラゴン[2] Eggu Doragon?, lit. "Egg Dragon") is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, serpentine-based robot model created by Dr. Eggman for Zavok.


The Mech Dragons are large, serpentine-based robots. Their bodies consist mostly on squareish, dark gray segments connected to each other, with white, target-like spots on the top and cyan, crystal-like objects on the sides. On their tails, they have a large, glowing pink sphere each. The heads of the Mech Dragons resemble that of an actual dragon, being mostly red-colored with dark gray casing on the top, with two small nostrils and two cyan eyes each.

Game appearances

Sonic Lost World

In the Wii U version, PC version and Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World, the Mech Dragons were part of Dr. Eggman's army until they were hijacked by the Deadly Six after the group had betrayed Eggman.

In the Wii U/PC version of the game, various Mech Dragons appear in Sky Road Zone 2. In gameplay, they fly around the Zone, destroying platforms. Regardless, it is possible for the player to stand and run on them without taking damage. Throughout the Zone, Mech Dragons might also attack Sonic by shooting fireballs from their mouths or by firing cyan lasers. They also appear in Sky Road Zone 3 in the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, where they behave similarly.

At the end of Sky Road Zone 2 in the Wii U/PC version of the game, a larger Mech Dragon is used by Zavok during the battle against him. Here, he will stand on the Mech Dragon's head and move it around to attack Sonic. During this, its body segments will be electrified, damaging Sonic when he makes contact. To attack Zavok, the player must hit the glowing orb on the Mech Dragon's tail tip and skip their way across the spots on its back with the Homing Attack to hurt Zavok. On the way however, some spots on the Mech Dragon will be temporarily electrified to stop Sonic. At the end of Sky Road Zone 4 in the Wii U/PC version of the game, another Mech Dragon will serve as the platform on which Sonic and Zavok will do battle. Over the course of this fight, Zavok will punch off joints on the Mech Dragon, reducing its size.

Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

In Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. the Mech Dragon appears on the title card for the Footbrawl-Throwdown event.

Powers and abiltities

Mech Dragons are capable of flight. They can also shoot fireballs from their mouths, and use the cyan crystals in their bodies to project deadly cyan lasers.


The Mech Dragons' weak spot is the orb on their tail tips. When it is hit, a Mech Dragon will be temporarily stunned, although it will still be active enough to slightly electify a few segments on its body.
