Heavy King

The Heavy King (ヘビーキング Hebī Kingu?) is the secondary antagonist of Sonic Mania. The leader of the Hard Boiled Heavies, the Heavy King is an enhanced version of the Egg-Robo created by Dr. Eggman. Struck with the power of the Phantom Ruby, the Heavy King led his troop into battle against the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Compared to the other Hard Boiled Heavies, the Heavy King gives of the impression of a brooding, stone-cold authority figure, a complete opposite to the more flamboyant members of his troop. Strict and serious, he rules his troop with an iron fist. With just one look, he is able to command his troop, as seen when the Heavy Gunner immediately followed orders with just one glare from him. He keeps a watchful eye on his colleagues, implying he is extremely alert of a situation. Like the other Hard Boiled Heavies, he wishes to do harm to Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles whether it be by orders from Eggman or by his own, chaotic nature.
