- For the version of this object after the Super Genesis Wave, see Prison Egg (Archie).
The Prison Egg is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a type of storage cage used by the Eggman Empire to hold prisoners.
Prison Eggs were once used during the Iron Dominion's occupation of New Mobotropolis. Later, during Operation: Clean Sweep, Sonic used a Newtron to crash a Prison Egg that Snively was listing. After defeating Snively, Sonic freed many Mobini from another Prison Egg, along with Sally Acorn, Antoine Depardieu, and Boomer, who joined him in his batte against Dr. Eggman.
After Operation: Clean Sweep, Dr. Eggman had Snively imprisoned in a Prison Egg onboard the Death Egg Mark 2 where he was to remain after trying to overthrow him. His Prison Egg was later moved to the Wily Egg. Soon after, Egg SWATs lead by Mecha Sally would use Prison Eggs to capture the citizens of Furville, but they were soon after freed by Team Fighters. The Prison Eggs were later used for the same purpose in Albion, only for the heroes present there to free their prisoners.
- Note: From this point, the Prison Egg's history continues from its new existence in the altered timeline.
- The Prison Egg is based on the Capsule that debuted in the video game Sonic the Hedgehog (1991).
- During the EndGame story arc, citizens of Knothole Village were forced inside many roboticization chambers by Combots, which resemble the Capsules from Sonic the Hedgehog (1991). Despite this, these chambers were never referred to as Prison Eggs or Capsules, as they were meant to simply robotize large groups of Mobians.
