The Egg Cerberus

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
(Only appearance)


Large, black and red dog-like robot with head antennae, which has to catch in order to control the robot.

Next boss

The Egg Cerberus is the first boss faced by both Sonic and Shadow in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). Sonic faces it before Dusty Desert and Shadow faces it after White Acropolis.


It is a giant dog-like robot, although its appearances in both Sonic and Shadow's stories lead to speculation on whether or not there is one or two of them. (Since the one in Shadow's battle seems rusted.) The boss' defeat requires the player to grind on their headrest, hold on to its head antennae, and lead them into a wall. This gets harder after time, as the Egg Cerberus will refuse to obey orders.


  • This robot is named after a dog in Greek mythology, Cerberus, who was a three-headed, fire-breathing, demonic dog who guarded the entrance to Hades' Underworld. However, the Egg Cerberus has only one head, unlike the Cerberus in mythology.
  • He bears a slight resemblance to Metal Hound, another Eggman robot made to resemble a dog.
  • In Sonic's battle, it is referred to as Dr Eggman's "pet" and in Shadow's battle, it's referred to as his "guard dog".
