I'm Morpho. A shapeshifting robot from another dimension.
— Morpho, "Eggman's Brother"
Morpho is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. He is a shapeshifting robot from another dimension built by his native Dr. Eggman, but would migrate to the Sonic Boom World to join this reality's version of Eggman.
Morpho's true appearance is unclarified due to his nature as a shape-shifter. His most common appearance however, is his "Steve Eggman" form (which is his original "resting state"). As Steve Eggman, Morpho looks a lot like Dr. Eggman, possessing the doctor's upside-down egg-shaped torso, board shoulders, relatively short legs and feet, thick neck, dome-shaped head, and pink sharp nose. Unlike Eggman however, Morpho has a blonde mustache instead of a brown one, and long blonde hair. He also shares much of Eggman's attire, including his blue pince-nez glasses, black pants, black boots, and jacket with yellow cuffs, a front flap attached to one of the buttons and two flap hanging from the back. Unlike Eggman's jacket however, Morpho's is blue.
Morpho originates from a dimension parallel to the Sonic Boom World, where he was created by his universe's Dr. Eggman. When Eggman accidently blew up their dimension, Morpho traveled to the Sonic Boom World. There, he sought to join the native Dr. Eggman by proving his worth to him.
Following a convoluted scheme, Morpho came to Dr. Eggman in his "Steve Eggman" form, claiming to be Eggman's lost brother. After Eggman kicked him out regardless, Morpho found Sonic and saved him when Eggman attacked him with Decimator Bot, under the pretense that he wanted to get back at Eggman. Having gotten Sonic's trust, Morph joined up with Team Sonic and helped them save some Gogobas despite the other member's initial mistrust. Morpho then posed as Team Sonic's members in different situations and set in motion events that tore Team Sonic apart. With Sonic vulnerable, Morpho came clean to Eggman, and the two tried to destroy Sonic. However, Team Sonic would reunite and beat the two and their army, leaving Morpho and Eggman to retreat.
Morpho is an evil, yet highly intelligent, manipulative and shrewd Eggman robot with self-awareness and sentience. Highly devious, he knows how to take advantage of people and their personality trait, and takes delight in tearing friendships apart by preying on peoples' vulnerabilities and disagreements. Normally, Morpho stays completely incognito while misleading people. However, he is protective of his cover as well, so he will on the rare occasion take direct action to stop others from ruining his plans. For all his deception though, he does have a small sense of courtesy; when he has mislead someone he supports, he will come clean and apologize for what he did. He also offered Amy a turnip after trapping her.
Morpho has an extremely arrogant attitude which makes him think his plans are infallible. This also makes him prone to underestimating his opponents, like when he underestimated Team Sonic's unity, which led to the downfall of one of his plans.
Powers and abilities
Morpho has the ability to alter his physical appearance and voice. As a result, he can cause himself to look and sound like an exact duplicate of any human, anthropomorphic animal, or regular animal being of either gender, wearing virtually any kind of clothing. His shapeshifting is so advanced that he can even assume the form of inanimate objects with all their functionalities available to him, like a working pogo stick. When he shapeshifts, Morpho twirls around like a tornado.
Morpho is also expert actor who can easily portray himself personality-wise to his benefit, from a benevolent and genuine version of Eggman, to a member of Team Sonic; even when he acts out of character when mimicing someone, Morpho knows how to provide alibies for his behavior and mislead people's suspicions.
