The E-1000 is an E-Series robot created by Dr. Eggman that appears in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. E-1000 robots are mass-produced variants of E-102 Gamma, which serve as regular enemies in the game.
The most noticeable differences between these robots and Gamma are their E-series ID number on the left side of the center body, tips of its robotic feet are cyan instead of the original version's green, and their two main arm cannon weapons.
Sonic Adventure 2
In Sonic Adventure 2, E-1000 robots are featured as guarding at Pyramid Cave, Egg Quarters and Death Chamber. The weaponry of E-1000 that is uses are two arm cannons. However, despite having double the firepower, the E-1000 line's weaponry, with low-velocity projectiles and no homing feature, is generally far less effective than E-102 Gamma's single missile launcher. They obviously lack the intelligence, agility, durability and skill of the original E-102.
There are also another version of the E-1000, which are cable to hover with a Jet Booster, that is closely similar to E-102 Gamma. When the player destroys both versions of E-1000 robots, the player is awarded with 200 points and the small animal friend inside the robot is free and collectible.
Sonic Rivals 2
E-1000 makes brief cameo appearance in Sonic Rivals 2 as Collectible Card No. 80. It is unlockable by achieving the high score in Haunted Haunt's boss fight against Egg Phantom. In the card, they are shown to have "1000" written on their side.
Appearances in Other Media

In this media, they are mass-produced Badniks and a part of Dr. Eggman's Badnik Horde.
