Description

Appearance

Mebot profile

The first known iteration of MeBot, from Sonic Boom #11.

The first known iteration of MeBot was a highly detailed and imposing humanoid robot reminiscent of Eggman. It was very muscular and defined with a black frame. On its upper body it had red chest armor with four cyan lights. Its shoulders had large and pointy yellow and red guards with spikes, and its hands were large and white with straps, menacing Eggman Industries tattoos, and spiked brass knuckles. It also had red and yellow pelvis armor with spikes on the sides, pointy kneecaps depicting a flaming and menacing Eggman Industries logo, heavily armored shins with red and yellow armor and brown straps, and pointy feet with spiked straps. Its head was like Eggman's but with teal eyes and a sharp orange mustache.

MeBotCockpit

The second MeBot's cockpit.

The second known iteration of MeBot had the first one's basic shape, but possessed a smoother and simpler design. This MeBot had a black frame with flat red armor on its chest, abdomen, front legs, shoulders, upper arms and pelvis. It also had a grey face with no features, except for forehead lenses and two yellow-orange hooks for a mustache. On the chest were thin cyan laser barrels and on its midriff's sides were windows into the cockpit. Its gauntlets, knees and feet (which were small) were yellow-orange, while its ankles were black. It also had grey fingers and grey plating in a few places. It also had a pair of collapsible red and black wings and a thruster on the back. Its cockpit also had a control panel and a holo-screen display.

Features and abilities

According to Dr. Eggman, the first known iteration of MeBot possessed infinite power, although how much of this claim is valid is unknown. The rear of the first incarnation was also equipped with its own escape pod.[1]

  • The second MeBot flying.
  • The second MeBot's laser.
  • The second MeBot's missile launchers.
  • The second MeBot's tractor beam.
  • The second MeBot's shuriken launcher.

The second known iteration of MeBot was a force to be reckoned with in combat. Noticeably, it could fight evenly with Sonic's Mech Suit, which possesses unparalleled power. With the Tummel Crystal powering it, Eggman even implied that the second MeBot possessed limitless power. In terms of physical strength, this MeBot could knock an opponent through several layers of rock with a single punch and overpower Sonic's Mech Suit. It also had enough durability to take several punches from Sonic's Mech Suit without suffering any damage. With the aid of its wings and a rocket thruster, MeBot was capable of flight too, and was every bit as fast and nimble in midair as Sonic's Mech Suit, if not more.[2]

The second known iteration of MeBot was crammed with extra features. This included chest-mounted lasers powerful enough to send large opponents flying, shoulder-mounted missile launchers, a wrist-mounted tractor beam for pulling enemies into its grasp, floating shurikens that were deployed from the ankles, deflector shields, and power windows. It was also equipped with a self-destruction function.[2]

Weaknesses

The first known iteration of MeBot and its incarnations all had a major design flaw–they were extremely top heavily, making them easy to topple and incapable of getting back up on their own.[1]

The main flaw of the second known iteration of MeBot was its features. Because it had so many functions to run, MeBot would use up any finite power source in seconds. This weakness could be circumvented by using the Tummel Crystal as a power source though. Secondly, it was difficult for its pilot to operate due to the many the features they had to keep tabs on.[2]

Eggman's schematics for MeBot.

Wanting his own mech suit to crush his foes, Dr. Eggman designed a feature-filled MeBot from the ground up. However, Eggman discovered that MeBot used up its batteries too quickly when he tried using it. To circumvent this, Eggman sought the Tummel Crystal to power MeBot. Upon getting the crystal, Eggman summoned MeBot and got it operational with the crystal. Being on the scene, Sonic called in his mech suit to battle MeBot. The fight was fierce and evenly matched, but Sonic won by using his mech suit to make MeBot's missiles blow up in its face and pull out the Tummel Crystal.[2]

MebotDefeated

MeBot defeated, from Sonic Boom #11.

MeBot was deployed by Dr. Eggman to battle Sonic. However, MeBot was easily defeated when Sonic exploited its flawed design, making Eggman flee in its escape pod. Eggman did not give up on MeBot however, and tried again with at least three updated models, all of which failed.[1]
