The Spider Bomb is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It is a mass-produced model of spider-like robots created by Dr. Eggman for an absurd plot.

Appearance

Spider Bomb are diminutive robots small enough to hide inside coconuts. They have grey cylinder-shaped bodies with five legs and one red eye. It has three holes on one side of their head, and a glowing red line around the top of their forehead.

History

TV series

Season one

Explode-o-nut creation

A Spider Bomb infesting a coconut.

Multiple Spider Bombs were summoned by Dr. Eggman to turn every coconut on Seaside Island into "deadly Explode-o-nuts." However, Team Sonic discovered this plot, though confused at its absurdity, and returned the Spider Bomb-infested coconuts Eggman used against them as they exploded. Some Spider Bomb-infested coconuts remained though, one of which dropped in on Eggman and blew up his recently-bought comic.[1]

Season two

Coming under Hypnobot's command when he and Dr. Eggman made an alliance, a Spider Bomb joined the villains' army on an invasion of Morristown. During the invasion though, the Spider Bomb got taken out by Amy before it could do any damage.[2]

Powers and abilities

Each Spider Bomb is capable of self-detonation. Though Eggman claims the force of their detonation is lethal, their explosions can at most only give a person several bruises. They are also equipped with drills that they can use to drill through coconut shells.[1] As Eggman robots, the Spider Bombs are also able to receive power remotely from Eggman's lair.[3]

Weakness

Being Eggman robots, the Spider Bombs rely on Eggman's lair to provide them with power. As such, should the lair run out of power, then they will too.[3]

Trivia

  • According to Amy, the Spider Bombs are a subliminal cry for help on Eggman's behalf.[1]
