Metal Mate is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series. He is a robot builder designed by con-man Max Gamble in the Casino Night Zone.
Gamble tried to con investors from the Eldorado Zone into financing the construction of an army of such robots, and to this end he demonstrated a prototype model. However, he made the model with faulty electronics and it short circuited during the demonstration (Gamble had hoped it would not short circuit until after he'd made the sale), then went haywire. The investors fled, but the robot was destroyed by Sonic the Hedgehog and Charmy Bee. Even after it was destroyed, though, the plutonium power core in the robot's head malfunctioned and was about to explode. Charmy Bee managed to save the civilians by flying the head up and hurling it into the sky, so that it exploded harmlessly in the air.
