The wrist controller[1] is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom series. It is a multifunctional gauntlet used by Dr. Eggman as his personal weapon and universal controller for his various inventions.



The wrist controller's original appearance.

The wrist controller is a magnifying glass-shaped gauntlet with a grey frame. Inside the lens section is a touchpad interface and inside the handle area is a button interface. It also has two metal straps for Eggman's wrist and upper arm. Originally, its interfaces were orange, but they changed to blue after Eggman incorporated Lyric's chest device.

Features and abilities

The wrist controller is manipulated via touchpad or voice command.[2] It also has its own voice for system messages.[3] Much like Team Sonic's Communicators, it also has a radio link to Eggman's robots, thereby allowing Eggman to talk with his creations remotely.[4]

In terms of offense, the wrist controller can fire various beams. This includes lasers sufficient enough to incinerate entire palm trees and small objects,[5] beams for encapsulating victims in force fields that the wrist controller can lower,[6] and beams for teleportation.[7] The wrist controller is also equipped with an alarm clock[8] and a music player,[9] and is capable of playing holo-videos.[10] It can also download different apps to attain additional functions. One of the apps it has downloaded includes a ghost detector.[11]

After equipping it with Lyric the Last Ancient's chest device, the wrist controller gained technopathy abilities, enabling it to control virtually anything electronic around it as long as it is not manually controlled. However, it still has its limitations. For example, it cannot override a Bee Bot's systems without the right password.[3]



Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

The wrist controller upgraded.

In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Dr. Eggman wore the wrist controller throughout the escapades involving Lyric the Last Ancient. After Lyric was defeated, Eggman incorporated Lyric's lost technopathy device into his wrist controller.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, the wrist controller was constantly worn by Eggman during his Ragnium-related operations. However, he never used it.

TV series

The wrist controller has always been worn by Dr. Eggman as a part of his standard attire. Over time, Eggman has used it to battle Team Sonic, commit evil deeds or handle more personal hassles. Other times, he would use it to command his various inventions and robots, control the inner workings of his lair, and for more novel situations like providing music or remembering his tasks.[2][6][7][8][9][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23] There have also been times where Eggman could not control its technopathic functions.[5][24]

Archie Comics

Other game appearances

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the wrist controller appears as a part of the toy from Q-N-C's Toy Shop that depicts Dr. Eggman. Curiously, it is depicted with a yellow interface, like when before Eggman incorporated Lyric's device into it.


  • Eggman salvaging Lyric's machine-controlling device for his wrist controller in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was first hinted by Steven Frost on Twitter.[1]
  • Eggman's wrist controller serves a similar purpose to Team Sonic's Communicators.
  • The wrist controller has its own tech support.[3]
