The wrist controller[1] is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom franchise. It is a multifunctional tool used by Dr. Eggman as his personal weapon and universal controller for his various inventions.



Original wrist controller

The wrist controller's original appearance.

The wrist controller is a magnifying glass-shaped gauntlet with a grey frame. Inside the lens section is a touchpad interface and inside the handle area is a button interface. It also has two metal straps for Eggman's wrist and upper arm. Originally, its interfaces were orange, but they changed to blue after Eggman incorporated Lyric's chest device.

Features and abilities

  • Laser beam
  • Force field beam
  • Teleporter beam

The wrist controller is manipulated via touchpad or voice command.[2] It can fire various beams, like lasers sufficient enough to incinerate entire palm trees and small objects,[3] beams that encapsulate victims in force fields that only the wrist controller can lower,[4] and beams for teleportation.[5] It also has an alarm for scheduled tasks and a music player.[6][7]

After equipping it with Lyric the Last Ancient's chest device, the wrist controller gained technopathy abilities, enabling it to control virtually anything electronic around it as long as it is not manually controlled.

The wrist controller was always worn by Dr. Eggman as a part of his standard attire. Over times, Eggman has used it to battle Team Sonic, commit evil deeds or handle more personal hassles. Other times, he would use it to command his various inventions and robots, control the inner workings of his lair, and for more novel situations like providing music or remembering his tasks.[8][4][9][7][10][11][12][13][14][15][5][16][17][6][18][2] There have also been times where Eggman could not control its technopathic functions, like when the first iterations of Obliterator Bot and Giant Robot would not listen to him.[19][3]

Other game appearances

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the wrist controller appears as a part of the toy from Q-N-C's Toy Shop that depicts Dr. Eggman. Curiously, it is depicted with a yellow interface, like when before Eggman incorporated Lyric's device into it.


  • Eggman salvaging Lyric's machine-controlling device for his wrist controller in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was first hinted by Steven Frost on Twitter.[1]
  • Eggman's wrist controller serves a similar purpose to Team Sonic's Communicators.
