The Egg Fighter (エッグファイター Eggufaitā?) is an enemy that first appeared in Sonic Unleashed and later in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations. They are a model of Badniks created by Dr. Eggman and served as the doctor's primary robot troopers during his operations to harness the power of Dark Gaia.

The Egg Fighters were personally designed and built by Dr. Eggman, and were made in the greatest quantity of all his models at that time. They possess features that make them the most versatile of the doctor's models and come in several variants.

Description

Appearance

The Egg Fighters were designed in the image of Dr. Eggman. They have a torso in the shape of a little more than a hemisphere, with four flashlights arranged in a rectangle on their front and a flat rounded head on top of it. They also have relatively shot legs, with flat feet and circular ankles, and arms that extend almost down to the ground with four-fingered hands. They are all colored steel blue and silver, and have purple eyes. However, few units also come in the colors red, orange and silver.

Behavior

While not known to possess any defined personality, the Egg Fighters' AI is set to seek out and destroy any blue hedgehog in the area which usually makes them extremely hostile in the presence of Sonic the Hedgehog. Certain Egg Fighter units, such as EF-MD1991, EF-DC1998 and EF-XB2006, however, have demonstrated distinct personalities of their own.

Powers and Abilities

The Egg Fighters possess above average physical strength, enough to let them move barrels at least three times their own size and easily carry large steel shields. Certain units of the Egg Fighters, however, are know to possess strength well above those of the standard Egg Fighter units.

The Egg Fighters are shown to possess a degree of hand-to-hand combat skills, being able to engage in close combat with others by using their bare fists.

The Egg Fighters possess the most versatile set of features of their models, and are able to utilize several kinds of weaponry with efficiency, such as swords and shields with different effects. The stronger the Egg Fighter is, the more equipped it is to handle stronger weaponry.

The Egg Fighters' hands are programmed with an autonomous AI and possess a separate operating system, allowing them to function on their own even after the Egg Fighters' main body is destroyed. As such, when an Egg Fighter is destroyed, their hands can detach themselves and become Little Fighters.

Game Appearances

Sonic Unleashed

The Egg Fighters made their first appearance in both the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version and PlayStation 2/Wii version of Sonic Unleashed. They are by far the most common enemy in the game, and be found in virtually all the daytime Action Stages/Stages and several of the nighttime Action Stages on the PS3/Xbox 360 version.

In gameplay, the Egg Fighters attack the player with punches where they envelope their fists in white energy. They are often accompanied by some of the more powerful robots, such as other variants of the Egg Fighters, the Aero-Chasers and the Interceptor.

Sonic Generations

The Egg Fighters reappeared in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations. In this game, they can only be encountered in both acts of Rooftop Run and the Challenge Acts tied to them. There, they have the same attack patterns as they had in Sonic Unleashed. Whenever they see Sonic, the Egg Fighters strike a pose.

In Rooftop Run Act 1, the Egg Fighters also serve the role of triggering traps for Classic Sonic by causing giant barrels to roll over him. These traps can be prevented by the player by destroying the Egg Fighters before they can trigger them.
