The Egg Hawk (エッグホーク Egguhōku?) is a cruiser battleship and the first boss in the game Sonic Heroes. It is controlled by Neo Metal Sonic, who is disguised as Dr. Eggman.


The Egg Hawk is a robotic hawk, as the name states. It is mostly red with a yellow beak, neck, rotor on its wings, and claws. It has gray squares on its wings. An Egg Mobile is located on its head. Guns are located on several places on its body. There are also two Egg Pawn robots mounted on the Egg Hawk that shoots machine guns. Another machine gun is mounted in its mouth.


Boss Guide

To defeat this boss, the team must chase the Egg Hawk. The Egg Hawk will constantly shoot its bullets at a range in front of it so the player must be careful when approaching it. The boss is supported by two Egg Pawn robots that assists shooting at the team, which they can be destroyed. If the player switches to Fly Formation and uses Thunder Shoot, at the rotors, the Egg Hawk will be temporarily disabled in place, giving the other team mates the opportunity to attack. If the team falls behind the Egg Hawk by a great distance, it will quickly fly towards the team. Once the Egg Hawk reaches the center of the circular beach arena, it will stop moving and spins around initiating its Rotary Attack. It is recommended to switch to Power Formation as their attacks can deal a lot of damage against the Egg Hawk before flying off. The player will then need to repeat the above tactics until the Egg Hawk is destroyed.

  • There is another boss with the Egg Hawk on top, called Egg Albatross, in the same game.
  • There is a glitch that causes the Egg Hawk's color to appear darker than it is supposed to (a dark purple rather than its actual color, red).
  • On the E3 build (where unused and entered through hacking), a bug causes the game to crash after transition from the stage and there's also no rings and breakable towers placed anywhere on the level causing the level to be harder than on the later releases.
