The Eggbot (created 3235) is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog and its spin-off comics series. It was an egg-based badnik created by Snively Robotnik. It appears to be a complete mockery of Dr. Ivo Robotnik, whom Snively considered using the Eggbots against and take over Mobius himself.
The Eggbots had been developed in secret by Snively in yet another ill-fated, ill-conceived plot against his uncle. On their first assignment, Snively brought a few to the Budding Circle on the south side of Robotropolis for some excavation. There was a great deal of emphasis in the secrecy of this plot, given what happened with prior would-be coups. Snively's plan was to dig up some leftover seeds from Robotnik's Krudzu fiasco. The plot to poach seeds was sidelined when Snively heard a commotion nearby. Snively ordered the Eggbots to stop any witnesses from reporting to anyone, and they transformed their digging tools into guns. After being discovered by the Knothole Freedom Fighters and a group of SWATbots, this batch of Eggbots was destroyed.
Sometime after Robotnik's demise and Snively's arrest, Snively overheard two guards discussing the return of Ixis Naugus. Deciding that this was worth investigating, Snively used a hidden controller in his thumbnail to activate another batch of Eggbots. Sonic, Antoine, and Princess Sally discovered the Eggbots arrival, and saw them using a drilling mech for some unknown purpose. They did not know that these Eggbots had the task of tracking Naugus. Fortunately, these Eggbots were even dumber than the last batch. Not only did they mistake a giant Power Ring for Naugus, but they used a power core that was really a containment cell for another of Robotnik's failures: Monkey Khan. Khan quickly and completely destroyed that batch of Eggbots, but Snively had one last batch to send. Unfortunately, when they arrived, Khan had already run off, kidnapping Sally in the process, leaving Sonic and Antoine to beat the Eggbots alone. Fortunately, Sally set Khan straight, and their combined efforts destroyed the last of the Eggbots. They have not been seen since.
- Note: From this point, the Eggbots' history continues from their new existences in the altered timeline.
- Although Snively referred to them as "EggRobos" in their first appearance, Antoine D'Coolette called them "Eggbots," which was the name used in subsequent appearances.
- The Eggbots were based on the Eggrobos from the video game Sonic & Knuckles, their design based on the game version of Dr. Robotnik.
- The Egg Robos appear in Skull Egg Zone on the cover of Mega Man #26, being led by Shadow Man.
