The Eggmobile is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom franchise. It is a one-person, multi-purpose hovercraft used by Dr. Eggman as his personal means of transportation and attack vehicle. The Eggmobile is fitted with a wide array of weapons, and serves as well as both the cockpit for larger machines and an escape pod when Eggman's creations are inevitably defeated by Sonic the Hedgehog and/or his allies. Of all his machines, Dr. Eggman is especially fond of the Eggmobile, referring to it as his "baby".
The Eggmobile is a white and spherical single-person pod. It has no seat or back frame. Its lower hemisphere is black and on each side it has a glowing orange stripe and a backward-facing engine with a vent on the front. The front has three blue LED bulbs inside a circle for headlights and a pair of smaller turrets. The control panel is placed on the front with a pair of handles for steering and several instruments. Additionally, it can be equipped with two one-winged sidecars for Orbot and Cubot.
Up front, the Eggmobile has a pink windshield with black tints along the sides. On a few occasions however, it has appeared without it.
Features and abilities
As mentioned above, the Eggmobile is able to hover in the air and can move at incredible speeds with great maneuverability, matching that of Team Sonic's super speed running and the Tornado. It has a highly modular design, able to utilize a wide array of weapon. This include missiles powerful enough to blow up roads, cannonballs, twin laser turrets that can destroy houses, and a concussive front beam cannon which can move large boulders. Other gadget attachments and features include a storage compartment on the bottom for deploying Badniks, a P.A. system, a tether with an "attraction ray" for picking up objects, a standard claw for snatching targets, a mechanical hand that acts independently on its own, extra yet smaller arms for delicate operations, and a noisy super-vacuum machine.
The Eggmobile can also act as a command module for Eggman's larger machines, such as his Eggman Mech and the Big Boy. In the chase of the Eggman Mech, when it is inevitably defeated, the Eggmobile then serves as an escape pod, allowing the pilot to eject mostly unharmed from the larger machine. While its side cars are attached, their functions are operated from the Eggmobile's main controls. In terms of structural integrity though, the Eggmobile is not completely infallible as extensive damage can leave it so frail that one misplaced hit can disable it.
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
When Dr. Eggman was having his plans foiled by Team Sonic, he fled using his Eggmobile while leading the heroes to Lyric's Tomb to set them on the path to releasing Lyric the Last Ancient. After Lyric was freed, Eggman faced him in his Eggmobile to make him hand over his technological secrets with Lyric's Destruction Troops. However, Lyric retook control of his robots, forcing Eggman to make an uneasy partnership with him, where he would use his Eggmobile to pursue Team Sonic and try to stop them from getting the Chaos Crystals. After Lyric dissolved their partnership by making Metal Sonic attack Eggman and his Eggmobile, Eggman used his Eggmobile as the control module for his Eggman Mech to dispose of Lyric, but then had to use it as an escape vehicle when Team Sonic disabled the mech. In Team Sonic's final battle with Lyric, Eggman and his Eggmobile-controlled Eggman Mech saved the team from Lyric, though the Eggmobile and the mech reached their limit from the effort and collapsed.
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice
Seeking to ruin Sonic's reputation as the fastest of all, the Eggmobile was used by Dr. Eggman to pick up Sonic for a number of trips to Thunder Island to race his Ragnium-powered Eggbots. Of all of them, only one trip did not go as planned. Eggman later used his vehicle to escape Ragna Rock after his plans were ruined.
On a day of battling Sonic, Eggman tried escaping in his Eggmobile until he sicced Burnbot at Sonic. When Burnbot was defeated, Eggman had his Eggmobile haul Burnbot back home. Later, as Eggman raced against Tails and the Tornado during Sonic's sidekick try-outs with his Eggmobile, he used it to pull in Burnbot who made Tails crash. However, after Sonic helped beat Burnbot, Eggman fled in his Eggmobile. When Obliterator Bot went rampant and trashed his fortress, Eggman used his Eggmobile to follow Team Sonic there after recruiting their help.
When Tails turned evil by an Evil Cookie, he used an Eggmobile for his size to attack Sonic. He abandoned it once he returned to normal. The Eggmobile was later put on sale by Orbot and Cubot to earn money for Eggman's jail bail. However, T.W. Barker scammed himself to the Eggmobile without charge. Later, Eggman used, the Eggmobile to announce the arrival of Cowbot to Team Sonic before returning home.
The Eggmobile was again used by Eggman for an invasion of Seaside Island, but had to flee in it after Knuckles destroyed his most powerful robot, the Mega. Following an encounter with a body-swapping meteor, Sonic, having switched bodies with Eggman, used the Eggmobile to get around as Eggman's body was too hard to run with. In the ensuring period, Eggman would use the Eggmobile to either depart after defeat, battle Sonic, or just survey the battlefield.
While caught in a time loop, the Eggmobile was used by Eggman to steal movies from the rental store for a plan to defeat Team Sonic (which failed). Then, when Eggman discovered Rocky, he used the Eggmobile to bring a swarm of Bee Bots to capturing him, only to retreat when Sonic made the Bee Bots attack him. The Eggmobile was later used by Eggman to fight Sonic, their battle eventually taking them into Buddy Buddy Temple where the Eggmobile was disabled after falling through a floor. As Sonic and Eggman worked to escape the temple using the Eggmobile, it was swallowed by a lava pit trap, though Eggman eventually rebuilt it.
When Nominatus took control of Eggman's systems, the doctor fled from his Bee Bots in the Eggmobile to Team Sonic for protection, and later to return home with his lackeys once Nominatus was destroyed. After being destroyed in a battle with Sonic, Eggman had a new Eggmobile ready the next day to attack Sonic with again. However it too got damaged, though Eggman managed to use it for one last, but fruitless attack. During an attempt to destroy Team Sonic with the Eggmobile, Eggman got bested when they used his tech against him. Eggman thus deserted technology, except his Eggmobile which he had Orbot and Cubot drag around, though he used it normally again to join Team Sonic in stopping the Lightning Bolt Society.
Using the Eggmobile to reach the Village, Eggman had his army of Swifty the Shrew robots tear the Village down. However, Sonic saved the day and sent Eggman flying by tampering with the Eggmobile. After using it to escaped from his defeat at Monkey-Boy's, Eggman used the Eggmobile to deploy his Spider Bombs, only for it to be heavily damaged by his Explode-o-nuts due to Team Sonic. However, Eggman quickly fixed it and used it to visit Sticks' yard sale.
When shooting a mind-enslavement movie, Eggman used the Eggmobile as both a stage prop, transportation around the set, and get-away vehicle after he got Sonic to perform. The Eggmobile was later used by both Eggman, Orbot and Cubot to survey two attacks which were foiled by Team Sonic. It was then used for a sneak attack on Sonic, but the hedgehog used the Eggmobile to his advantage by having its claw weapon herd in sheep and disorient its passengers before Spin Attacking it away. Another time when Eggman was taking his Eggmobile to the Village, Dave the Intern accidentally made it topple a tree with its laser which knocked Eggman out.
On New Year's Eve, Eggman used the Eggmobile to reach the Village Center twice to fight Sonic (where it got damaged on the first trip), both of which failed. It was later used again by Eggman for a trip to the Village's post office to get a package, and to lead an attack on the studio of the Comedy Chimp Show. Eggman later used it for a raid of Tails' Workshop, but only to flee in shame in it after Team Sonic stopped him. During another battle with Team Sonic, Eggman employed the Eggmobile, although Amy would knock it over the horizon with Eggman (after she and Eggman agreed to a Fuzzy Puppies session).
On a mission, Eggman had the Eggmobile empty a toy-and-game factory until Team Sonic stopped him. It was soon after used to haul some stolen gear to a battle with Sonic which Eggman ultimately lost. Eggman also rode the Eggmobile during a test of his new Obliterator Bot which Team Sonic foiled while damaging the Eggmobile, and for a rampage to steal a trophy which Team Sonic stopped too, with Amy sending Eggman and the Eggmobile flying. Then, when Team Eggman (Eggman's league of villains) attacked Team Sonic, Eggman used the Eggmobile to battle the heroes, and to follow Sonic and Shadow's fight when the latter took over as Team Eggman was losing. After Shadow left the fight and Team Eggman was beaten, Team Sonic started juggling with Eggman and his Eggmobile as payback.
Following the creation of the Big Boy, Eggman used the Eggmobile as the mech's command module to battle Team Sonic twice. Each time through, the mech was defeated and heavily damaged, and when Eggman tried to deploy it again after its repairs, it and the Eggmobile fell apart due to Orbot and Cubot. When Eggman deployed the Big Boy for a fourth time, both the mech and the Eggmobile fell apart after Sticks used the Rock of Justice on them, leaving the doctor and his lackeys with nothing but the floating remains of the Eggmobile to escape on. He eventually repaired the Eggmobile which he used to escape Team Sonic after distracting them with his robots.
Other game appearances
Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom
In Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, the Eggmobile is depicted without its windshield, like in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. In this game, Eggman always flies in it whenever the player begins on a new run. Later updates to the game sought to that Eggman and his Eggmobile could be fought during certain events as the game's only boss.
- In the opening cutscenes of Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the two jets on the sides of the Eggmobile's rear serve as rocket engines, blasting blue flames out as the vehicle zooms forward. However, during the TV series, they are replaced with propellers similar to those inside jet turbines.
