GUN's appearances

Sonic Adventure 2

In Sonic Adventure 2, the GUN organization was introduced. As the plot is revealed, it is shown that GUN were responsible for the mistaken capture of Sonic the Hedgehog, the ending of Project Shadow, the invasion and subsequent deactivation of the space colony ARK and the death of its inhabitants - including Maria Robotnik. GUN's role in this game is simply to contain the threat posed by Shadow the Hedgehog and Dr. Eggman. However, they also attack Sonic and his friends (although many factors, such as GUN's mistaking of Sonic for Shadow, and Tails attack on Prison Island, might have provoked this), and in Rouge's first level, GUN is seen holding a turtle at gunpoint. It is unknown why they were doing this, and the reason was never explained. They wern't called "GUN," instead the characters called him "the government" or "the millitary." But in Shadow the Hedgehog, they were refered to as "GUN."

Shadow the Hedgehog

The role of GUN in Shadow the Hedgehog's' plot is to repel the invasion of Earth by the forces of the Black Arms by any means necessary - including the (presumingly unwanted) assistance from Sonic and his friends. During the opening FMV sequence, it is shown that Earth is being overrun, with GUN's forces almost helpless - hence the temporary alliance. It is also strongly hinted during the game and FMV sequences that GUN's mission is the investigation (and possible destruction) of Shadow himself, depending on the player's moral choices within the game. (Their attempts at doing this are caused by the commander of GUN due to his personal hatred of Shadow, although in two endings he realizes Shadow isn't evil.)

Commander claims he saw Black Doom with Gerald Robotnik releasing Shadow. When the government came to shut down the ARK and killed Maria, he blamed Shadow for her death, as well as the deaths of all other ARK inhabitants, when, ironically, it was the GUN army that killed most of them. It is unknown why he was on the ARK, but it can be assumed that he was related to one of the researchers since he said his family were killed along with Maria. However, it is a mystery as to why the Commander himself was not killed.


He controls the Diablon robot, GUN's most powerful creation despite it being unfinished. In three of the endings of the games, he teams up with Sonic to fight Shadow. It is unknown whether he controls it personally or via remote, as both are implied through dialogue/lack thereof.


Once he speaks to Shadow before Cosmic Fall, he realizes that Shadow isn't evil at all and regrets attempting to kill him. After Shadow defeats Devil Doom and destroys the Black Comet, the President states how ironic it was that people treated Gerald like he was evil, and he ended up saving them all in the end. The Commander and the President realize they were wrong about Gerald's intentions and that he was truly a good hearted person.
