The Subatomic Slow-go Beam Weapon.

The Subatomic Slow-go Beam Weapon is an object that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It was a device created by Dr. Robotnik. Its only appearance is in the episode Slowwww Going.


The Subatomic Slow-go Beam Weapon drastically controls molecular motion (not mental motion), but its effects are temporary. If a victim is hit by the beam on the slow setting, the effects unfortunately wear off after one hour. It is powered by the Mobian Mega Crystal.


Before Robotnik manages to explain its properties, Scratch mistakes the Subatomic Slow-go Beam Weapon for an old stove pipe. After Robotnik tells him, he puts it on his head and bumps into a lot of things, setting Robotnik's lab on fire briefly. While Scratch and Grounder wield it, they manage to zap Robotnik (twice), a waterfall, some rocks, the alarm gong used by Rocket the Sloth and finally Sonic the Hedgehog, their intended target. Tails takes it, but is caught, and when Grounder knocks it out of his hand, the Moobian Mega Cystal breaks, reversing its effect. Scratch grabs it and is about to zap Tails when Sonic pulls Scratch's tail feathers, causing Scratch to drop it. Tails takes it and gets back to the Sloth Family where Rocket accidentally falls on it, getting zapped which makes him fast. Tails uses it on the rest of the Sloth family and makes them fast enough so they can distract Scratch and Grounder while Tails zaps Sonic back to normal. Sonic escapes and trashes the Badniks.[1]
