~ Metal Sonic in Eggman VS Wily

Metal Sonic is Dr. Eggman's ultimate creation and the secondary antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He appears in the 19th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Eggman VS Wily, under Eggman's command in order to fight against Wily's ultimate Robot Master, Bass. He was declared the "official" winner of the battle due to being the last one standing after having destroyed Eggman, Wily, and their respective robot armies. He returned for the 79th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Metal Sonic VS Zero, where he fought against Zero from the Mega Man X series.


While venturing through the mysterious Little Planet with Amy Rose on his tail, Sonic the Hedgehog came across a robotic doppelgänger of himself created by Dr. Eggman called "Metal Sonic", who was specifically designed to be better than the Blue Blur in every way. When they first met, Metal Sonic kidnapped Amy, prompting Sonic to give chase. After a race against Sonic on Stardust Speedway, Metal Sonic was defeated and Amy was saved. Even after his defeat, however, Metal Sonic would prove to be one of Sonic's greatest adversaries, either while working for Eggman or by his lonesome.

One Minute Melee

  • Metal Sonic was crowned the winner of Eggman VS Wily due to him destroying both Eggman and Wily, and their armies.
    • This would make Metal Sonic the only Death Battle victor who was not listed as a direct combatant, as he, along with all of Eggman's other robots, were treated as a part of Eggman's arsenal.
  • Metal Sonic is the tenth combatant to return to Death Battle, with the first nine being Leonardo, Batman, Samus Aran, Boba Fett, Superman, Goku, Charizard, Shadow and Deadpool, and with the next two being Thor and Wonder Woman.
    • He is also the eighth combatant from Season 1 to return, with the previous seven being Leonardo, Batman, Samus Aran, Boba Fett, Superman, Goku and Shadow, and then following him being Thor and Wonder Woman.
    • He is also the second returning villain after Boba Fett.
    • He is also the first returning combatant to appear in Season 4, with the next two being Thor and Wonder Woman.
    • He is also the second combatant from the Sonic series to return after Shadow.
    • He is also the third Death Battle winner to return, after Leonardo and Deadpool, and before Thor.
    • Metal Sonic is however, the first returning combatant to have initially been part of a main combatant's arsenal in a previous episode.
    • Metal Sonic is also the first returning combatant that had a voice actor to not receive one in their second appearance.
    • Metal Sonic is the first returning victor to lose a Death Battle, with the next two being Thor and Batman.
    • He is the second character to have both won and lost a Death Battle, with the first being Batman and the next two being Thor and Wonder Woman.
    • He is also the fifth returning combatant to lose, with the first four being Boba Fett, Goku, Charizard and Shadow and the next two being Thor and Batman.
  • Metal Sonic is the fourth character from the Sonic series to appear in Death Battle after Shadow, Sonic and Dr. Eggman and after him were Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose.
    • Not counting his supporting appearance in Eggman VS Wily, he is the seventh Sonic combatant to appear in Death Battle.
  • Metal Sonic is the fourth Sonic combatant whose opponent is not from the Mario series, with the last three being Shadow, Dr. Eggman and Amy Rose.
