Metal Sonic is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom series. He is the evil robotic duplicate of Sonic the Hedgehog created by Dr. Eggman, and an enemy of Team Sonic.[1]


Metal Sonic was created in the image of Sonic the Hedgehog, and is thus mostly built of blue metal. He has a yellow circular depression in his chest with a black center, mirroring Sonic's peach-colored chest. His head has three metal fins resembling Sonic's quills, and a pair of triangular "ears." Metal Sonic has a muzzle with screws for cheek bones, a pointy nose, shoulder plates, and upper arms, legs, and fingers made out of silvery metal. His palms are black, while the backs of his hands are square yellow plates. His forearms and lower legs are blue metal like his head and torso, and he has red feet with white stripes resembling Sonic's shoes. He has optic sensors with black sclera and red irises which sometimes glow purple.



Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

Sonic Boom RoL profile

Metal Sonic in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

Metal Sonic was deployed by Dr. Eggman at Lyric's Tomb in an attempt to defeat Team Sonic who were pursuing the doctor. As the chase led towards the outside of the tomb itself, Metal Sonic and an army of Destruction Troops cornered the heroes. However, they fled into the tomb and locked Metal out whose attempt to enter was futile.

At Slowpoke Isle, Metal Sonic was summoned by Eggman to attack Lyric the Last Ancient when the latter wanted to end their partnership. However, Lyric took control of Metal and had him drive off his former master. Lyric then upgraded Metal's code and sent him on rampage through a nearby village to obtain a Chaos Crystal. Metal successfully swiped the Crystal from Team Sonic, only to engage them in a fight in which Metal was defeated and lost the Crystal before shutting down. Later when Eggman recovered Lyric's technopath device, Metal Sonic was reactivated.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

Metal Sonic was sent to a robot factory under the Ancient Ruins, with orders from Eggman to destroy Team Sonic. However he was beaten by Sonic in a race, and fled to the Volcanic Crater.

Metal Sonic Boom empowered

Metal Sonic using the Particle Accelerator.

For one of Dr. Eggman's schemes, Metal Sonic framed Sonic for several thefts across Seaside Island so Sonic would be arrested. When Sonic and Knuckles found him in the East Forest, Metal Sonic took out Knuckles and turned to Sonic, eventually using Eggman's Particle Accelerator against him. However, Metal Sonic was defeated when Sonic made the Particle Accelerator blow him up. Earl then brought the inert Metal Sonic to the authorities in time to clear Sonic's name, where Eggman quickly took him back.[2]


Metal Sonic is best surmised as another mindless creation of Dr. Eggman's, displaying little to nothing in terms of personality. Single-minded, silent and unquestionably loyal to the master his programming dictates, Metal Sonic is unwaveringly dedicated to his orders and prosecutes them with cold and merciless efficiency, destroying entire villages without a second thought. Despite this, he is capable of some degree of emotion, showing a cold outrage at losing Team Sonic when they escaped into Lyric's Tomb and striking a victorious pose when he thought he took down Sonic.[2] He is also quite intelligent for an Eggman robot, such as following Team Sonic to the Verdant Crystal rather than looking for it himself and using the Particle Accelerator when he was losing to Sonic.[2]

Powers and abilities

Metal Sonic is easily one of Dr. Eggman's most powerful creations, destroying an entire village in a manner of minutes and going toe-to-toe with most of Team Sonic. Metal Sonic is equipped with a built-in jet engine which allows him to achieve flight and move at speeds equaling Sonic's;[2] he can even boost at such velocities that he can make the ground explode in his wake. He has formidable strength and durability as well, landing punches hard enough to create shockwaves that can knock several people off their feet, and taking Knuckles' strikes head-on without flinching the slightest.[2]

Metal Sonic can shoot various laser beams from his torso which pack enough power to destroy constructions several times his size and blow a large hole in a mountainside. This includes concussive beams which can knock even Knuckles out despite the latter's extreme tolerance for pain, and heat lasers which can cleave a whole house in half.[2]


Unlike his organic counterpart, Metal Sonic has limited stamina due to being powered by a finite power supply that requires periodically recharging. His lasers are also prone to malfunctioning.[2]





Metal Sonic is a boss in both Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. In both games, the player has to engage with Metal Sonic in a race battle.
