For the character in the Archie Comics, see E-1000 (Archie).

The E-1000[1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic Adventure 2. It is a mass-produced variant of E-102 Gamma created by Dr. Eggman, possibly in an attempt to capitalize on the power of the E-100 Series.


Though based on E-102 Gamma's core design, the E-1000s are noticeably more streamlined and simplified due to mass-production. Their limbs only feature half the joints used by the original model, and their design lacks a targeting scope, waist-mounted flashlight, cannon-grip and ankle-mounted wheels, implying they lack the original version's ability to change modes.

Game appearances

Sonic Adventure 2

In Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, the E-1000s appear in the following Action Stages for each character:

Character Action Stage
Sonic Pyramid Cave
Knuckles Death Chamber
Rouge Egg Quarters

In gameplay, E-1000s act as relatively stationary sentries that will track the player's movements with their cannons. However, the E-1000s' weaponry, with low-velocity projectiles and no homing feature, is generally far less effective than E-102 Gamma's. They obviously lack the intelligence, agility, durability and skill of the original E-102.

There is another version of the E-1000s which is capable of hovering around instead of just staying on the ground. When destroying any version of the E-1000s, the player is awarded 200 points and an Animal will be released from the robot.

In Sonic Rivals 2, the E-1000 makes a cameo appearance as collectible card nr. 80. It is unlocked by achieving the high score in the fight against the Egg Phantom. On their card, they have "1000" written on their side.

Powers and abilities

E-1000s have the ability to hover for short distance using small engines attached on their backs. They also come equipped with a laser cannon without homing features on each arm.

E-1000 Archie Profile

An E-1000, from Sonic the Hedgehog #262.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics, the E-1000s are mass-produced Badniks and a part of Dr. Eggman's Badnik Horde. The robots, in more recent comics, appear to be more like the E-100 series than their Sonic Adventure 2 counterparts, possessing the same amount of limb joints as standard E-100 units.
