Metal Overlord is a transformation that appears in the comic series and its spin-offs published by Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics. It was a form Metal Sonic once attained, after he had evolved into Neo Metal Sonic.
After copying data from the members of
Team Sonic, Team Rose, Team Dark, the Chaotix, and Chaos through Froggy and Chocola, Neo Metal Sonic eventually evolved into Metal Overlord in his bid to finally defeat Sonic the Hedgehog and take over the world. Despite his power, he was defeated by Super Sonic and his Chaos Emerald-empowered teammates Knuckles the Echidna and Tails.  Sonic remembered this form as simply "that stupid dragon thing" when he later battled Metal Sonic aboard the  Wily Egg in the Skull Egg Zone.
