The Metropolis Egg Army is a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is an unofficial faction of the Egg Army which was temporarily stationed in Metropolis Zone to specifically develop a Shield Generator for the Death Egg. Unlike other units of the Egg Army, the Metropolis Zone forces have no Egg Boss, answering directly to Dr. Eggman.
Countdown to Chaos
When Sonic and Tails infiltrated Metropolis Zone in search of their missing companion Bunnie, they encountered the foreman and an Egg Soldier, who turned out to be Bunnie in disguise. Bunnie knocked the foreman unconscious, and told Sonic and Tails about the new shield generator which Dr. Eggman had commissioned to be built in Metropolis. As Sonic and Bunnie made their way to the generator, however, the Metropolis Egg Army's forces were dispatched to prevent their escape and capture them. The army managed to surround Sonic and Bunnie around the doors to the vault that stored the shield generator, but an earthquake forced the army to retreat to its secure shelters, and the Freedom Fighters escaped aboard the Tornado with the shield generator.
- The Metropolis Egg Army is the first Egg Army unit to be introduced without any named membership, as well as reporting directly to Dr. Eggman without an assigned Egg Boss. However, this Egg Army is not an official faction. As stated by Ian Flynn, the army was temporarily inserted into the Metropolis Zone to use the Zone's resources in development of the shield generator, nothing more.
