The Egg Beater was a battle suit created by Dr. Eggman designed to counter all of Sonic the Hedgehog's abilities. This robot is actually the first, and so far only, machine Eggman has made that has defeated Sonic the Hedgehog in the entire comic series.
It was used during the successful attack on Knothole and later to attack New Mobotropolis. While originally it utterly defeated Sonic, the suit was destroyed by the combined efforts of the Knothole Freedom Fighters and the Chaotix. The suit was armed with a giant spiked ball/mace and carried a shield capable of deflecting powerful attacks. (StH: #175, #176, #177).
When Snively later had betrayed the Eggman Empire, Eggman went after him and found Snively, along with the Iron Queen. Snively controlled the Iron Oni and had chased Eggman through the Dragon Kingdom. Fortunately, Orbot and Cubot summoned an Egg Pod from the Egg 'Stache Flyer and Eggman went inside the machine. The machine was a remodeled version of the Egg Beater and Eggman used it to defeat Snively and lock him up in an Egg Pod. (SU #40)
The Egg Beater is colored red, black, grey and yellow, and has red metal mustache and has spikes all over body. It also has star bumper shield, teleportation beams, checker-wrecker-ball flail, shoulder mounted missile pods, wrist mounted laser blasters, teleportation of other objects, flight, super strength and combat capabilities to defeat Sonic the Hedgehog.
- The battle suit was not actually given a name in the comics, but writer Ian Flynn stated he and the rest of the staff called it the "Egg Beater" in a Q & A thread on his message board.
- This is, by far, the only robot Eggman has made that has defeated Sonic in the entire franchise.
- The Egg Beater combines elements of several boss machines from the Sonic the Hedgehog video games; its wrecking ball is borrowed from the Egg Mobile-H first seen in the original Sonic the Hedgehog, the missile barrage may be a reference to Dr. Robotnik’s Flame Craft in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, while its shield and foot design both seem lifted from the EGG-HVC-001 of Sonic the Hedgehog CD. Its general form also resembles the Death Egg Robot in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
