Dr. Wily

  • Robot Masters Worked Better as a Team than Individuality
  • Planned ahead, and Planted a "Just in Case" Dummy

One Minute Melee

Dr. Eggman appeared in Season 1 of One Minute Melee and faced off against Mario antagonist Bowser. He ends up losing, making it the first time a Sonic character loses to a Mario character on ScrewAttack (Even though it's not a Death Battle episode).

He also appeared in Wario VS Knuckles, where he stole the Master Emerald while Knuckles was busy fighting his opponent, as well as in Shadow VS Vegeta, where he was defeated by Shadow and about to be killed, but spared thanks to the intervention of Vegeta. Later in Luigi VS Tails, Tails was about to finish Eggman off before Luigi stepped in. He was finally stopped by Tails at the end of the episode, and both Tails and Knuckles beat him up after the fight.



  • Dr. Eggman (along with his robotic minions) is the third combatant from the Sonic the Hedgehog series that appeared in Death Battle, the previous two being Shadow and Sonic, and the next three being Tails, Knuckles and Amy.
    • He is the only human from the Sonic series to appear, and the first non-animal Sega character to appear, with the next two being Segata Sanshiro and Bayonetta.

    • Round 1 - Probably goes to Cortex due to him actually having physical fighting experience. Round 2 - Probably Cortex again based on the fact...
    • Just going from an up-down order since there's two round three's. Round 1: Cortex easily due to being comparable to Crash, Egg...

    • With only Death Egg Robot and Egg Dragoon, Lex stomps due to fighting Superman-level characters. Eggman is better for mostly the above reason...
    • Lex both times due to fighting Superman level characters, while Eggman's never beaten Sonic I'd say Lex by a slim margin Eggman...
