"E.G.G.M.A.N." is the theme of Dr. Eggman for Sonic Adventure 2. This song was written by Paul Shortino.

A remix of the song, known as the "Doc. Robeatnix Mix", was produced by Lee Brotherton (credited as the Remix Factory) and included in a brief cutscene in the game Shadow the Hedgehog. It also plays briefly in Sega Superstars Tennis, when Eggman uses his Superstar Move.

An instrumental version can be unlocked in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. This theme can be heard several times in Sonic Generations. An instrumental version is also heard when Dr. Eggman unleashes his All-Star Move in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The original version of the song is used in Phantasy Star Online 2 as the background music for the "Wild Easter" Emergency Quest, as well as being a collectable music disc for My Room/Team Room background music.

Lyrics

Who ooh, ooh, hoo hoo oh yeah!
[SCATTING]
N-oh!
The story begins with who's gonna win
Knowin' the danger that lies within
Aboard the ARK a genius at heart
Who wanted to unlock the mysteries of life
I am the Eggman, that's what I am
I am the Eggman, I got the master plan
I am the Eggman, that's what I am
I am the Eggman, with the master plan
I'm plotting my schemes wherever I go
They're perfect in every way
I'd love to destroy the blue one you know
He's an obstacle that always gets in my way
I must play this game by my rules
I will conquer the world with my tools
All my machines are made for destruction
I will build my empire
I will succeed and you will see
With my machines there is no retreat
I am the Eggman, that's what I am
I am the Eggman, I got the master plan
I am the Eggman, that's what I am
I am the Eggman, I got the master plan
[GUITAR BREAK]
I am the enemy, I will succeed
My mission, yeah, I must complete
My name is Eggman, don't forget my name!
If you ask me again, I'll tell you the same
I am the Eggman, that's what I am
I am the Eggman, I got the master plan
I am the Eggman, that's what I am
I am the Eggman, I got the master master plan
I am the Eggman!
