Mecha Sonic is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is an early robotic copy of Sonic the Hedgehog, which defended Robotnik's Death Egg. It is about twice as tall as Sonic, coloured a uniform metallic grey, and gets its speed from jet boosters on its back and on the heels of its feet. Sonic considered it a pathetic imitation.
Sonic encountered Mecha Sonic on his first trip to the Death Egg (as recorded in Sonic the Hedgehog 2) and believed that he had trashed the robot. However, although the Death Egg had been heavily damaged and rendered useless to Robotnik, it was still in orbit around Mobius. Some time later its orbit began to degrade, and was set to crash into the Emerald Hill Zone. Sonic and Tails returned to the Death Egg, where they found Mecha Sonic damaged but operational. It told them that intruders may not pass, by order of "the omnipotent Doctor Robotnik".
- In this continuity, the robot was not referred to by name. It is called Mecha Sonic on this page by reference to Mecha Sonic (Death Egg Zone), the robot on which it was based.
- In Nigel Kitching's original script for the story in Sonic the Comic #6, it is mentioned that the robot actually repaired itself after Sonic's previous encounter with it. It is also given the name "the Sonic Badnik" in the script, which is not seen in the final version.
