Team Metal is a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a team consisting of members from Dr. Eggman's Metal Series, namely Metal Sonic, Metal Tails and Metal Amy.
Having been assembled by Dr. Eggman, Team Metal was deployed in an attack on New Megaopolis in coalition with Eggman's SWATbots troops. Eggman had hoped to save the group for another occasion, but was forced to launch them due to the unexpectedly strong resistance his forces encountered. Though formidable, the trio was unable to overcome Team Freedom, the city's defenders, who were aided from the shadows by the Secret Freedom Fighters. Metal Sonic fell to his predecessor, Shard, Metal Amy was destroyed by Big the Cat after Silver the Hedgehog paralyzed her with his telekinesis, and Metal Tails fell to the combined efforts of Elias and Rotor Walrus.
- Team Metal is essentially a robot version of Team Fighters, the robots making it up being the counterparts of the heroes who make up the Mobian team. Team Metal does not possess a counterpart to T-Pup, although they were assisted in their efforts to invade the city by the Tails Doll.
