Description, Sonic Unleashed[1]

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

The Egg Fighters were 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 very versatile and come in several variants.

Appearance

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

Game appearances

Egg Fighters in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version of 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 PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version.

In gameplay, the Egg Fighters attack the player with punches. 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

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, the Egg Fighters are only encountered in both acts of Rooftop Run and the Challenge Acts tied to them. They also 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 can trigger traps for Classic Sonic that cause giant barrels to roll over him. These traps can be prevented by destroying the Egg Fighters before they can trigger them. Also, in the game's hidden Statue Room, the player can unlock a statue of the Egg Fighter.

Personality

While not known to possess any defined personality, the Egg Fighters tends to display quirky behavior, such as striking dramatic poses. Their 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 move barrels at least three times their own size and easily carry large steel shields. Certain Egg Fighters units, however, are know to have strength well above the standard units. They also have a degree of hand-to-hand combat skills, being able to engage in hand-to-hand combat.

The Egg Fighters have the most versatile set of features of their models, and are able to utilize different kinds of weaponry, such as swords and shields, with different effects. The stronger the Egg Fighter is, the more well-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, meaning their hands can detach themselves, become Little Fighters, to continue fighting when the Egg Fighters' main body is disabled.
