In a stroke of genius, Eggman programmed the hands of his Egg Fighter units with autonomous AI, enabling them to fight on even after the main body fails. Rumor has it the hands and bodies don't always get along too well. — Description, Sonic Unleashed
The Little Fighters small humanoid robots who resemble a four-fingered hand with a thumb on each side of the palm. Their torsos are rectangular with rounded corners on the bottom with a pair of three-segmented legs and a two-segmented arm on each side of their torsos. They also do not have neither feet or hands. They have head on top of their torsos that are shaped like cones pointing down with red lights running along the upper edge.
In their standard form, the Little Fighters are the hands of some Egg Fighter units and Egg Shooters. However, they have been programmed by Dr. Eggman with autonomous AI and possess a separate operating system, allowing them to continue operating and function after the Egg Fighters' main body fails or ceases to function. As such, when an Egg Fighter is destroyed, the Little Fighters can detach themselves from the remains and continue fighting.
The Little Fighters have very simple attack patterns, only jumping around and landing simple strikes on the player.
Despite the Egg Fighters being numerous, the Little Fighters are rarely encountered. Instead, they only appear in the nighttime Windmill Isle Act 2 and the last nighttime section in Eggmanland on their own. While not being a significant enemy, they are notable for piloting the Egg Devil Ray and Egg Lancer in the battles against them in the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version of Sonic Unleashed.
Though being the dismembered hand of the Egg Fighter, the Egg Fighter never drops or loses the Little Fighters when destroyed.
Rumor has it that the Egg Fighters' bodies and the Little Fighters do not always get along too well.
