E-101 Beta is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was the second unit in the E-100 Series robotic group created by Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. E-101 Beta was one of the first E-100 Series robots created, specifically during the time of when Eggman harnessed the power of Chaos.
Created in the year 3236 by Dr. Eggman inside the Egg Carrier, E-101 Beta was the second unit of the E-100 Series. Along with three of his "brothers"–E-102 Gamma, E-103 Delta, and E-104 Epsilon–Beta was assigned to a competition to see which E-100 Series robot can retrieve Froggy (the entity that contained the "tail" of Chaos). However, Beta did not accomplish the mission, bringing in a regular lizard. It was Gamma, however, that brought Froggy and won the contest. Eggman then sent the other E-100 Series robots away from his sight.
Powers and abilities
Because not much is known about E-101 Beta, its arsenal has not been fully shown. However, it does have a Jet Booster, allowing it to fly in the air, along with a twin missile cannon on its left arm (Note that this information only applies to the Pre-Super Genesis Wave timeline).
- Unlike its video game counterpart, E-101 Beta was incorrectly depicted with a purple color scheme instead of a black one in the Pre-Super Genesis Wave timeline (replacing E-105 Zeta in terms of color design). It was also given the incorrect model type (one twin missile cannon rather than two).
