The Tummel Crystal is almost two times the size of a fist. It consists of a number of differently-sized black crystal spikes growing out of a base made of cracked brown rock. It is also shown to glitter despite its coloration.
Powers and traits
The Tummel Crystal is capable of generating enormous amounts of energy that are ideal for energizing and empowering any kind of mech suit; according to Dr. Eggman, if one were to harness the Tummel Crystal properly for their mech suits, one could wield limitless power. Most noticeably, it was able to power MeBot, whose design drained regular batteries in seconds, indefinitely.
In the present day, the Tummel Crystal was sought by Charlie to power his mech suit. After he told about it to Dr. Eggman however, the doctor excavated it from its catacombs with the aid of the Froglodytes and some enslaved Gogobas, and used it as a power source for MeBot. Sonic however, managed to claim the crystal after defeating MeBot.
