The Particle Accelerator is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It is a device created by Dr. Eggman which he used for a scheme to frame Sonic.



The Particle Accelerator is a white horseshoe-shaped handheld device fitted with a grey grip in the middle and five small crystals. Dr. Eggman described it with a small scratch on its left side. It is made from polished titanium.[1]

Features and abilities

TV series


The Particle Accelerator was created by Dr. Eggman while he was at summer camp.[2]

Season one

Created by Dr. Eggman, the doctor used the Particle Accelerator for a scam by having Metal Sonic steal the device and then frame Sonic as the culprit. When Sonic found Metal Sonic though, the robot used the Particle Accelerator to empower himself. Hitting the device with a horseshoe however, Sonic made the Particle Accelerator overload Metal Sonic until he blew up. Sonic then returned the device to Eggman.[1]

Season two

When Dr. Eggman was in need of money, he thought about selling his Particle Accelerator, but was unable to part with it.[2]


  • In real-life, particle accelerators are machines that use electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high speeds and to contain them in well-defined beams.
