The Egg Cannon is a blue walker robot deployed by Dr. Eggman during the events of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). The Cannon has several weapons, including lasers on its arms, missiles, and drills around its feet. The robot's main weak point is its core, which is perched atop its legs.
The Egg Cannon has superior armor compared to other robots such as Egg Gunners and Egg Flyers, as the Cannon's armor takes several hits to destroy, while most other robots are weaker.
The Egg Cannon has several abilities:
Drills on its feet
Lasers on its arms
Egg Cannons make their first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). They only appear during levels and never during cutscenes. Like Egg Walkers, they attack the player until they are destroyed, or until the player gets too far out of its range. Cannons are not as common as Gunners and Flyers and their role in the game is not very large. The robots do not often appear during levels with Iblis' minions. During the course of the game, the Cannons and Walkers prove to be quite tough to defeat due to the strength of their armor.
Despite their toughness, the robots first appear in Wave Ocean, one of the earliest stages for Sonic. They are seen in nearly all of Sonic's levels, with the exception being Crisis City. The Cannons/Walkers have not appeared in another game since their debut.
