Dr. Eggman, Sonic Boom #6

The Courier Robot is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom comic series published by Archie Comics. It is a cheetah-based robot built by Dr. Eggman for delivering messages.

Appearance

The Courier Robot closely resembles a non-anthropomorphic cheetah. It is mainly orange with black spots, white paws, a white lower jaw, white upper torso, a segmented tail, and white disk-like leg joints along with red eyelids and blue eyes. Around its waist it has four separate engine-like rockets. When switching to video phone-mode, it retracts its legs and neck, and opens its mouth.

History

Archie Comics

Built by Dr. Eggman, the Courier Robot was sent to contact Team Sonic. When it found Sonic, it chased him for several miles until Team Sonic came to Sonic's defense, and promptly provided the team with a video-link to Eggman who challenged them to a go-kart race. After Team Sonic accepted, the Courier Robot flew away.[1]

Powers and abilities

Courier Robot Video Phone

The Courier Robot as a video phone, from Sonic Boom #6.

Possessing rocket thrusters, the Courier Robot can fly and possesses unprecedented speed for an Eggman robot, enough to keep up with even Sonic for several miles and eventually overtake him. It can as well transform into a video phone for displaying live-feed holographic videos.[1] As an Eggman robot, it is also able to receive power remotely from Eggman's lair.[2]

Weakness

Being an Eggman robot, the Courier Robot relies on Eggman's lair to provide it with power. As such, should the lair run out of power, then it will too.[2]
