Roboticization Post-SGW

Bunnie having undergone partial roboticization, from Sonic Super Digest Special Edition #9.

Roboticization is a subject that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the process by which an organic creature is converted into a robotic being. This is usually accomplished by a Roboticizer; the reversal of the process is simply called deroboticization.


Physically speaking, the process of roboticization converts living tissue into machinery: all body parts are transformed into mechanical equivalents. Due to the transformation, roboticized subjects typically possess increased strength, extra features and other abilities, as in the cases of Bunnie D'Coolette.[1]

Roboticized beings-at least when made so by Eggman-lost all free will and independent thought, and became solely subservient to the evil doctor. While Eggman enjoyed the obedience displayed by these subjects, even he would admit that they were somewhat lacking in terms of original idea and personality.[2]


Professor Charles the Hedgehog developed the roboticization process to save lives, particularly from life-threatening injuries or conditions. It took him some time to develop, and unfortunately was not viable in time to save the life of Nikki. However, he was able to use it to save the life of Bunnie Rabbot, who suffered grave injuries during the Eggman Invasion.[1][3]

Dr. Eggman would later usurp the roboticization process for his own twisted ends, using it to turn Mobians into obedient slaves to serve him as laborers and troops.[4] However, by some means the process appears to have been at some point rendered ineffective, though the possibility of it becoming viable again remained a source of fear for Eggman's underlings, such as Egg Boss Axel the Water Buffalo.[5][2]

Eventually, Dr. Eggman came up with a new approach to Roboticization. This version of the process is still highly experimental, so Maw the Thylacine and his Egg Army unit were given the task of running many tests on at least one unlucky individual using it.[6]

List of known roboticized subjects


  • The roboticization process is based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series' concept of roboticization, where an Animal is forcibly stored inside a robot shell and is used as its respective power supply. Unlike the extremely difficult process of de-roboticizing in the comics, the restoration process for Animals in the games is done by merely breaking open the robot to free its captive within.
