Concept and inspiration

Doctor Robotnik's design prior to Sonic CD

In April of 1990, Sega requested a game capable of selling over one million copies and a character to replace Alex Kidd as the company's mascot, as well as to rival Nintendo's flagship character, Mario. Several character designs were submitted by its AM8 research & development department, including an armadillo (who was later developed into Mighty the Armadillo), a dog, a spiky hedgehog (which would later become Sonic the Hedgehog), and a rabbit (intended to use its extending ears to collect objects; these aspects were later incorporated into Ristar).[4] A caricature of Theodore Roosevelt was also one of the possible designs, but it lost to Sonic the Hedgehog, and eventually became the basis for Eggman.

In most video games, the main villain is the final boss fought by the player. Eggman, by contrast, appears as the boss of almost every level in most of the 2-D Sonic games (and some 3-D games), in a different machine each time. In the three-dimensional games, Eggman's role has often been shared by the influence of other enemies. Additionally, he has often been betrayed by his own allies and has sometimes even aided Sonic after his plans spiral out of control. As a result, Eggman is rarely the final boss of the post-Genesis games.

Eggman's debut occurred in the 1991 platform game Sonic the Hedgehog. He attempted to collect the six Chaos Emeralds (later seven) and turn all of the helpless animals inhabiting South Island into robots, but was foiled by his archenemy, Sonic the Hedgehog. He returned for the game's sequel Sonic the Hedgehog 2, where he once again searched for the seven Chaos Emeralds, this time to fuel his new Death Egg warship. In Sonic CD, released in 1993, Eggman, along with his latest creation, Metal Sonic, travels to Little Planet in search of magical stones that have the power to control the passage of time, hoping to use these stones to take over the planet. Once again, Sonic defeats his attempts. In Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, following the events in Sonic 2, Eggman's Death Egg crash-lands onto Angel Island. While repairing the ship, Eggman meets Knuckles the Echidna, whom he tricks into believing that Sonic is trying to steal the Chaos Emeralds, which Eggman wants to use to repair the Death Egg.

In Sonic Adventure (later released as Sonic Adventure DX Director's Cut for the Gamecube), Eggman (as he is now more commonly known in the West) learns of the legendary beast, Chaos, and seeks out the Master Emerald. Upon finding it, he shatters it, freeing Chaos in the process. Eggman's goal is to control Chaos and obtain the Chaos Emeralds, which he can feed to Chaos so that it transforms into its most powerful form, using its destructive powers for him to conquer the world.[7] Sonic Adventure 2 marks Eggman's first appearance as a playable character. Eggman revives the anti-hero Shadow the Hedgehog from dormancy. Shadow, knowing Eggman's desire to rule the world, agrees to help him by using the Eclipse Cannon aboard Space Colony ARK. In the last story, Eggman aids Sonic in trying to stop a fail-safe put in place by his grandfather, Gerald Robotnik, which would set the colony on a crash course with Earth.[8] In Sonic Heroes, Eggman is captured by his own creation, Metal Sonic, who disguises himself as Eggman as part of a larger evil plan.

In the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog game, Eggman kidnaps the princess of Soleanna, who harbors the Flames of Disaster within her, in order to control time. Once again, he is forced to assist the heroes during the last act, much like previous games. Eggman also appears in Sonic and the Secret Rings as King Shahryār of Persia. Here, his physical appearance has been changed back to his Adventure look.[11] Eggman appeared in Sonic Rush Adventure, where he is once again a main villain. He is also set to appear in the upcoming roleplay game, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. While he won't be the main villain, he will be a "more credible bad guy again". According to the developers, he has become more of a comic relief villain in most recent games, and they wish to help re-establish his role as a true threat. In the upcoming game Sonic Unleashed, Eggman has been seen in screenshots stealing the Chaos Emeralds from Sonic when in his Super Form. It has been speculated from other screenshots that he will be the main villian, as well as use the Chaos Emeralds to summon a monster.

In Sonic Spinball, a pinball-themed game, Eggman seizes Mount Mobius and turns it into a mechanical base, setting up an elaborate pinball mechanism to keep the Chaos Emeralds safe. Eggman has also appeared in "2.5D" isometric platformers; in Sonic Labyrinth, he secretly replaces Sonic's famous red shoes with the new "Slow-Down Boots," which take away his ability to jump or run fast, and in Sonic 3D, he turns innocent Flickies into robots in yet another search for the Chaos Emeralds. Eggman is also a playable character in such games as Sonic Drift, Sonic R, Sonic Riders and its sequel Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Sonic the Fighters, Sonic Battle (in which he isn't controllable), and Sega Superstars Tennis.

Characteristics

Personality

Doctor Eggman is a self-proclaimed[12] but, with an IQ of 300,[13] certifiable genius.[14] His fondness for mechas[1] has made him a renowned authority on robotics.[12] Eggman's goal is to conquer the world to create the ultimate utopia,[15] selfishly not giving a thought for others' opinions on a matter[1] in which he never gives up.[16] His abominable laughter and maniacal declarations mask his self-professed softer side, as a romanticist, feminist, and gentleman.[13] Despite his intelligence, Eggman is terribly immature,[16] prone to emotional fits and childish tantrums when he is not getting his way. Although Sonic has always ruined his evil plans, and Eggman does hate him;[1] he holds a secret respect for Sonic's determination.[14] He considers others who would interrupt his plans by conquering or destroying the world a prime threat,[15] and has teamed up with his rivals in a number of games to stop them (such as in Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Sonic the Hedgehog). “SA2” redirects here. ...

Appearance

Dr. Eggman's current appearance

In the 16-bit era, Eggman was quite obese. His first outfit was red shirt with two white buttons on his front, black pants, white gloves, and an unusually small yellow cape. He also wears dark blue pince nez glasses which hide his eyes. In the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog game, Eggman's blue eyes can be seen behind his glasses for the first time. Although animated and comic versions have showcased him with red pupils, the video game counterpart's eyes have never been seen with the exception of Sonic Advance where his eyes are comically seen briefly after being struck. Despite his spherical body, he has incongruously thin legs. Eggman's most noticeable feature is his large, multi-pointed mustache.

Beginning with Sonic Adventure, Eggman became somewhat taller, and became more egg-shaped compared to the balloon shape he had before. His attire took on a different appearance as well, while still retaining a red-yellow-black theme. A pair of goggles can also be seen on his head. During Eggman's appearance in the new Sonic the Hedgehog game, his look changed again (he bears a startling resemblance to Gerald Robotnik, his grandfather). In effect, he is much less obese, (although his stomach is still visible underneath his clothing), and his legs are much chunkier. He wears an updated version of his post-Sonic Adventure outfit with an additional turtleneck collar, but without the goggles atop his head. His eyes are barely visible under his glasses.

Abilities

Eggman as he appears in Sonic 06.

Eggman's most well known ability is his masterminded plots and schemes which only fail due to Sonic and his friends. Eggman is an incredibly skilled pilot able to swoop missiles and lasers with his Eggmobile with skill rivaling that of Tails, (as seen in Sonic X). Eggman has also shown some considerable physical strength, (his character type in Sonic Riders and its sequel being power). Despite his physical structure, Eggman is also very athletic, this seen in many of the 16 bit era games, as there is almost always a point where Sonic chases him, yet Eggman seems able to sprint ahead long enough to reach his next weapon or escape vehicle.

When the first Sonic the Hedgehog title was released in 1991, Sega published a comic book (written by Francis Mao) designed to promote the game. The 14-page story included a non-canon origin for both Sonic and Eggman: Originally a benevolent scientist named Kintobor (an anagram of "Robotnik"), the Doctor used to be close friends with Sonic, even helping to develop the hedgehog's super-speed. Kintobor later tried to eliminate all the world's evil by absorbing it into the chaos emeralds, but the experiment went awry, instead shocking the Doctor with "10,000 volts of pure evil energy." As a result, Kintobor transformed into the grotesque Robotnik.[21] While inaccurate in regards to the games, a similar origin for Robotnik/Eggman later found its way into the UK-based Sonic the Comic, which was first published in 1993.

That same year, Archie Comics began publishing its Sonic the Hedgehog comic book. The series is faithful to (and in a sense, a continuation of) ABC's Sonic the Hedgehog animated cartoon: Instead of being a mad scientist, Robotnik is a dictator who is bent on ruling Planet Mobius. To this end, he "roboticizes" all living creatures he finds, reducing them to unquestioning robot slaves. A defiant Sonic the Hedgehog joins a band of Freedom Fighters who oppose Robotnik's reign. In recent times, the plot of the comic has changed to incorporate elements from the video games, with Robotnik adopting the physical appearance of Dr. Eggman.

Like many characters in this Archie incarnation, Robotnik/Eggman has counterparts in parallel universes. The most prominent among these is a Robotnik who hails from dystopian version of Mobius, where Sonic and his friends were captured and turned into robots. In spite of this, the Freedom Fighters somehow kept their self-awareness and used their newfound super-strength to demolish Robotnik's army. Realizing that he was ruined, Robotnik lost his mind, used his own roboticizer on himself, and became Robo-Robotnik.[22] This version later changed his name to "Eggman" and replaced the incumbent villain as the main antagonist of the books.[23] Parallel universe or alternate reality in science fiction and fantasy is a self-contained separate reality coexisting with our own. ...

Eggman's most traditional vehicle is the Eggmobile (known as the "Egg-O-Matic" in comics and cartoons) is a small hovering craft with a very distinct egg-like shape, a small circular lamp on the front, and can be fitted with a seemingly endless amount of gadgetry. It can notably be converted into a more mech-like walker configuration, which Eggman used extensively in Sonic Adventure 2.

Eggman's army consists fully of massproduced robotic drones whose appearance and armaments vary greatly from type to type. The helpless animals that inhabit the islands of Sonic's world are usually the first to fall victim to Eggman's schemes, as he will gather them in large droves to be transformed into his loyal worker drones. "Badniks" was a term used to describe these robot henchmen in early North American and European releases of the games, whereas they were just known as "Eggman's robots" in Japan. For other uses, see robot (disambiguation). ...


The E-Series are a special part of Eggman's forces that have played a larger role in the games than the rest of the robots. Most notably E-102 Gamma, who was playable in Sonic Adventure and whose design is reused often by Sonic Team, and E-123 Omega who first appeared as a playable character in Sonic Heroes, and has appeared several times since, are his most recognized robots.

In Sonic Heroes, Eggman apparently scrapped the animal-powered "Badnik" designs and, in their place, started developing orange Eggman-resembling grunts simply called Egg Pawns. These had no animals inside and had rather poor intelligence. Eggman continued to use the Egg Pawn model in most subsequent games until the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog game, in which Eggman started using more serious, metal-colored humanoid robots armed with missiles and machine guns.

Eggman, aside from the huge mechas and robots he builds in his likeness, also engineers robot Sonic knock-offs to pit against his rival. Silver Sonic (known as Mecha Sonic in the Japanese manual) was his first attempt, and was featured as the penultimate boss of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit).

Eggman's most successful and persistent Sonic copy to date is Metal Sonic. He made his first appearance in Sonic CD to capture Amy Rose and race Sonic on the Stardust Speedway. Unlike the previous attempts, Metal Sonic was built for speed with a sleek form. Metal Sonic, after his first defeat at the hands of Sonic, went on to harass the Chaotix, where he was able to turn into an enormous, red version of himself via the Chaos Rings and wreak havoc for a while, until he was defeated once again. Afterwards, he was seen around participating in any kind of racing or fighting Sonic joins in, in hopes of defeating him one day. In Sonic Heroes, Metal Sonic impersonates Eggman in an attempt to copy Sonic's, Tails', Knuckles', Shadow's, and Chaos' DNA and finally put an end to his rivalry with Sonic, once and for all. Eggman has also built robot copies of other characters, such as Metal Knuckles, the Tails Doll, and the Shadow Androids. He has even created robots based on himself, called Eggrobos.

    Naming variations

    Eggman as he appears in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games or Sonic Unleashed.

    Due to a split storyline between the Japanese and American/European Sonic games, the character of Robotnik/Eggman has been known by several names in the various media and adaptations of the Sonic franchise. In Japan, the character has always been known as "Doctor Eggman" since his introduction in the first Sonic the Hedgehog game. However, in early American and European game versions and other media he is known as Doctor Ivo Robotnik. Although, despite this, both names slipped occasionally in the different regions. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games , lit. ...


    In Fleetway's Sonic the Comic, the character's name was originally Ovi Kintobor. But an explosive accident involving a rotten egg reversed his kindly personality (along with the letters of his name), and he emerged as Ivo Robotnik. The Sonic the Hedgehog animated series expanded on the character's name further, revealing his first name to be Julian. The Sonic the Hedgehog comic book, which is closely based on the cartoon, gives Robotnik's birth name as Julian Kintobor of the House of Ivo, with "Kintobor" being his family name. Fleetway, also known as Fleetway Publications and Fleetway Editions, was a publishing company, mainly producing comic magazines for the U.K.. Fleetway began life as Amalgamated Press, the company owned by Alfred Harmsworth, who were based in Fleetway House. ... For the Archie-published comic, see Sonic the Hedgehog (comic series). ...

    Beginning with Sonic Adventure, Sega began a process of merging the American and European game stories to the Japanese version, including introducing the concept of calling the character "Doctor Eggman" in the American and European versions. Initially, both names were used in the English language version, as he referred to himself as "Robotnik" while others mockingly called him "Eggman" because of his round physique. In the sequel, Sonic Adventure 2, he begins referring to himself as "Dr. Eggman", although his grandfather and cousin share the family name "Robotnik".
