Sonic & KnucklesEdit
In the Sandopolis Zone in the game Sonic & Knuckles, the boss of the first act is an animated statue much like the Egg Golem, called the Guardian. It was vulnerable only on its head, and could only be defeated by luring it into a pit of quicksand. It may have been a partial inspiration for the later character. It is unknown if the Guardian was created by Doctor Robotnik or an independent guardian for the pyramid.
Coincidentally, the final boss of the Zone was also called the Egg Golem, but this boss is not as similar to the robot from Sonic Adventure 2. The Sonic & Knuckles Egg Golem is an Eggmobile, piloted by Eggman, that is built into a giant stone exo-suit. Eggman attempts to attack the player with the suit's stone arms. It can be defeated by first striking the stone armor, causing it to retract, then attacking the Eggmobile.
Sonic Adventure 2Edit
After Knuckles the Echidna defeats King Boom Boo, Eggman appears and summons a giant animated stone statue called the Egg Golem to battle Sonic. To defeat the Egg Golem, Sonic must run to his back, jump across the platforms that stick out, and attack Golem's control mechanism on top of its head. You can also Homing Attack the platforms with glowing symbols.
In the Dark Story, Sonic immediately jumps up and kicks the control mechanism, causing the Egg Golem to go haywire and turn on Eggman. In order to defeat it, Eggman has to use his Volcan Cannon to destroy its internal power generators. Once all three of them are destroyed, the Egg Golem becomes disabled and sinks into the quicksand. The music is also a remix of King Boom Boo's music, and this boss' music is labeled as 'Boss 4A'.
The Egg Golem also appeared in the Sonic X adaptation of Sonic Adventure 2. It was remotely controlled by Bokkun, who used it to fight Sonic and Knuckles. The two heroes had a hard time with the Golem, but eventually, Cream the Rabbit stole the remote control from Bokkun and made the Egg Golem chase him into the desert. It later appeared standing in the desert during Super Sonic and Super Shadow's fight against the Finalhazard, with Bokkun standing on its head.
According to an eyecatcher information card from Sonic X, the Egg Golem is 57 meters tall and weighs 250 tons. The Egg Golem fights by smashing its hands and head against the circular platform that Sonic or Eggman is standing on. It can also create an electrical field around itself to repel attacks or spin its arms around itself in order to sweep enemies from the platform.
- The Egg Golem is the only boss in Sonic Adventure 2 to have the prefix Egg in its name.
- It is also the only boss to be fought in both the Hero and Dark story-lines.
