The Spider-Kart is a vehicle that appears in the Sonic Boom comic series published by Archie Comics. It was Dr. Eggman's personalized go-kart used for his participation in the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix.
In its standard mode, the Spider-Kart is identical to the other go-karts Dr. Eggman provided for the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix. Painted purple, it had a flat chassis with four wheels (two small front wheels and two slightly bigger rear wheels), a single seat, a cuboid trunk, and a steering wheel on the front with a pedal on each side. When transformed, it gains a front plating and headlights resembling Eggman's face, its wheels stand on cables, its wheel covers gain spikes, and it grows four three-clawed tentacles.
Features and abilities
The Spider-Kart is equipped with a holographic computer screen and an instrument board for controlling Eggman's traps on the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix's race course (including a horn). In its standard mode, it has not special abilities, and its speed is inferior to go-karts like Sonic's. With a press of a button however, it can alter itself into a spider-like form, giving it increased speed and flexible, yet powerful tentacles.
Having tricked Team Sonic to join the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix, Eggman used his Spider-Kart for the competition, which he used to observe his Bio-scanning Who-za-ma-whats-its copying their bio-data as his traps took the heroes out of the race. However, Sonic returned, and when Eggman could not stop him with his traps, he transformed his Spider-Kart into its spider-mode and brawled with Sonic. Though the Spider-Kart kept Sonic from the finish line, Team Sonic's other members arrived in Tails' Plane and distracted it. After Sonic won the race, Team Sonic then attacked the Spider-Kart until it blew up and sent Sticks into the forest, leaving it with only a wheel and seat left which Eggman retreated on.
- As a part of her odd, yet accurate suspicions for the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix, Sticks thought the Spider-Kart could transform into a "mecha-dragon".
