I am the weapon.

— Sonic Man, Sonic Boom #8

Sonic Man is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs, and the Mega Man comic series, published by Archie Comics. He is the evil Robian version of Sonic the Hedgehog, who has been upgraded using technology from the future of Mega Man's World that turned him into one of the latest Roboticized Masters.


Sonic Man retains Sonic's normal color scheme and sports his normal design, with a few added design choices. Among these, Sonic Man now has a Mega Buster on his right arm, his chest is made up of three horizontal segments in the same color as Sonic's skin, and Sonic's eyes now sport a color scheme similar to Metal Sonic's. He now has a golden. "W" shaped symbol across his head as a reference to Dr. Wily, and as well Robot Master-styled boots and shoulder pads.


Worlds Unite

As Sonic was caught and brought to Dr. Eggman's base on the Lost Hex, which Sigma had commandeered, he was imprisoned alongside Mega Man, the two of them being brought there at the suggestion of Eggman and his companion in slavery to Sigma, Dr. Albert W. Wily. Sonic was then transformed into Sonic Man and sent to attack Mega City while Mega Man became M'egga Man and was sent to attack Mobotropolis. Sonic Man was specifically formed by analyzing Sonic's data and fusing him with data from Quick Man. However, the two doctors secretly programmed in a secondary objective into the two that would have them restore each other once the two worlds were merged to make them fight Sigma.[1][2][3]

Sonic Man fights the Robot Masters, from Sonic the Hedgehog #273.

Sonic Man made short work of the Light Robot Masters, his weapons proving too much for the non-combat designed machines. However, before he could set up a Unity Engine that Sigma sent to him through a Genesis Portal, he was attacked by several reformed Wily Robot Masters and Quake Woman. Even they failed to stop Sonic Man, who might have destroyed them had it not been for Break Man. Unfortunately, even he was unable to defeat Sonic Man, who used the Unity Engine's protective field as a weapon. The engine then began working with the one on Sonic's World to merge the worlds together, leading to the laid-out confrontation between Sonic Man and M'egga Man.[3][4]

Sonic Man and M'egga Man battled each other as their respective worlds began merging, each proving a formidable match for the other. Eventually, their attacks acted in the manner that Eggman and Wily intended, restoring both Roboticized Masters to their previous, heroic persona.[5]

Powers and abilities

Along with M'egga Man, Sonic Man is arguably the most powerful of the Roboticized Masters; he single-handedly defeated eighteen Robot Masters, including the prototype, Break Man, even after the latter took him by surprise. He appears to retain his normal self's capacity for improvising, as shown by how he knocked Break Man into the Unity Engine's shield to defeat him. His counterpart, M'egga Man, is his only equal in combat. He is also revealed by Dr. Wily to have been equipped with a processor similar to Quick Man's in order to account for his incredible speed.[3]

Like his normal form, Sonic Man retains his Spin Dash abilities.[2] His speed is also so great that even time-slowing weapons such as Time Slow and Time Stopper do not have a significant impact on him.


Sonic Man is equipped with a Mega Buster-like weapon, and have built-in Special Weapons. So far, the known weapons he uses are:
