Mrs. Dave's Mom[3] is a character in the Sonic Boom television series. She is the evil-orientated mother of Dave the Intern.

History

TV series

Past

The mother of Dave the Intern, Dave's mom left her husband early on and eventually found a new boyfriend (who would pester Dave).[4] Some sources hint that Dave's mom contributed to a poor home life which would drive her son to villainy.[5] Admiring villains herself, Dave's mom pestered her son to become a proper villain, only for Dave to continuously disappoint her with his incompetence and worthless alliances.[3]

Season one

One day, after forcing Dave out to be a villain, Dave's mom bought her son a new pajamas to try out, thus humiliating him during a TV recording. After she later heard and threatened someone else in her basement, her house came down on top of her. When Dave admitted he did it, however, she was proud of him for his terrible behavior.[3]

Personality

Dave's mom is very belittling, overbearing and has little patience, which is shown in her harsh treatment of her son. She is equally very scary[6] as both Sonic and Dr. Eggman cowered in fear of her wrath.[3]

Dave's mom has very twisted morals and preferences. She openly encourages her son to follow the path of villainy and clearly admires villains, going as far as to show pride at Dave when he proved his maliciousness by destroying her house, even through it meant getting herself buried under its ruins.[3]

Relationships

Dave the Intern

Dave the Intern is her son, whom she consistently pushes to become a villain. Despite Dave's age, she is very overbearing with him and treats him like a child. Fundamentally, Dave's mom only wants Dave to become a successful villain. Because of Dave's incompetence and her own high standards however, he often ended up being a disappointment to her, prompting her to nag Dave about doing better and following others' examples. Eventually though, she acknowledged Dave as a villain with pride after he destroyed their house.[3]

Dr. Eggman

While Dr. Eggman in part fears Dave's mom, she holds great respect for him, considering him a "wonderful, horrible" person, and wishes for Dave to be more like him.[3]

Lightning Bolt Society

Like many others, Dave's mom thinks the Lightning Bolt Society's members are a bunch of losers. She especially forbids Dave from hanging out with them as she does not consider them a bad enough influence on him.[3]
