Stationed in Pyramid Cave, the Egg Golem was called forth by Dr. Eggman to destroy Sonicandhisfriends when they reached the center of the base. Though shocked at the size of his opponent, Sonic engaged the Egg Golem and eventually disabled him by landing a kick on his restraining mechanism. His restrains now broken, the Egg Golem started rampaging and soon targeted Eggman, forcing the doctor to destroy his creation.
Like many of Eggman's other robots, the Egg Golem was obedient, silent and unwaveringly dedicated to his master's orders (as long as his restrains were in place). He appeared to lack in intelligence though, given his primitive and often brutish fighting methods.
Powers and abilities
Extremely large and sturdy, the Egg Golem had impressive strength, capable of moving around in quicksand without hindrance and hit with enough force to topple platforms and create powerful shockwaves. He also possessed an outer armor made of rock which made him very durable, as it would take several shots from the Volkan Cannon to penetrate his armor.
The Egg Golem possessed articulated joints, allowing him to rotate both his head and torso 360 degrees around. Though also not near superhuman, the Egg Golem was fairly fast for his size and structure, his swings being able to keep up with even Sonic's speed. It could also generate an electrical aura that would shock anyone who touched it.
The Egg Golem possessed a number of weak spots, the most noticeable being the restraining mechanism on his head. If that is destroyed, it would send the Egg Golem on an uncontrollable rampage. He also had weak spots under his armor, though they are protected by said armor.
The Egg Golem starts out by trying smash Sonic with its fists, offsetting and eventually shattering segments of the platform. This can be dodged by moving out of the way. After that, he will stick his arms out and whirl around like a tornado for a sweeping attack. This attack can be avoided by either getting off the platforms, jumping over the hands, or hiding in recesses. It takes the Egg Golem a moment to recover from each attack, which allows the player to counterattack.
While the Egg Golem recovers, run around behind him and jump up the ledges protruding from his back. The top three ledges in particular are marked with yellow symbols that the player can use to Homing Attack to the top. From the top ledge, the player can attack the Egg Golem's head, damaging him. After three hits, the Egg Golem will smash his whole head into the platform, instantly shattering whichever segment he strikes. Land two more hits (for a total of five) to defeat the Egg Golem.
Like with Sonic, the Egg Golem starts begins by hammering with its fists, offsetting and eventually shattering segments of the platform. This can be dodged by moving away. After that, he sticks his arms out and whirl around like a tornado for a sweeping attack. This attack can be avoided by either getting off the platforms, jumping over the hands, or hiding in recesses. Between each attack, the Egg Golem a moment to recover.
Begin by shooting at him with the Volkan Cannon until one of the cracks in the Egg Golem chest opens up. When it does, lock-on onto the exposed mechanical part three times, and fire the Lock-On Missile. Repeat this process with the other two cracks to finish him off. Eventually, the Egg Golem will smash his whole head into the platform, instantly shattering whichever segment he strikes. It is advised to just keep running in a circle, but if the Health Gauge gets low, Hover down onto the platforms below to find some Rings and a Health kit.
In Sonic X, the Egg Golem appeared during the Shadow Saga. It was remotely controlled by Bokkun, who used it to fight Sonic and Knuckles. Eventually, Cream stole the remote control from Bokkun and made the Egg Golem chase him into the desert. It later appeared in the desert during Super Sonic and Super Shadow's fight against the Final Lizard.
