Official Debut Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
Availability Unlockable
Final Smash Big Arms
Dr. Eggman is an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. Amplified and the second fighter from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.


Dr. Eggman is known to be predictable. In Amplified, this predictability factor still exists. Players can work around the predictable nature to create some interesting combos. His fighting stems from his modified Egg Walker, which fuses the Egg Walker mech from Sonic Adventure 2 and the E-Mech from Sonic the Fighters.

Trophy Info

Dr. Eggman:

Dr. Eggman is an evil, egg-shaped man with an unbelievablely high IQ of around 300. Dr. Eggman's main goal is to build an empire, his, by taking over the world. He fights in a modified Egg Walker from Sonic Adventure 2 in Smash. This Baldy McNosehair really doesn't give up, no matter how many Sonic beats him. Maybe he should try aiming for a teaching degree.

Dr. Eggman (Alt):

Dr. Eggman's Homing Shot is self-explaining laser shot from Eggman's own mech which can be deflected. Mech Lance makes a dash at the foe with the Egg Emperor's weapon. The Walker's own hovering system boosts Eggman up and he hovers down slowly, with minor damage and pushing from the Walker's feet exhaust. The Push Bumpers is a good keep away tool to deal with agressive foes, but it only protects Eggman from threats in front of him.

Big Arms:

Dr. Eggman configures the Egg Walker to change into the Big Arms mech. This machine grabs unlucky foes and slams them onto the stage and reconfigures into the Egg Walker. This is great when foes back Dr. Eggman into a figurative corner.  The mech can flinch with a strong attack and shrug off weak ones, so hurry up and grab foes before Dr. Eggman reconfigures back into the Egg Walker. Oh, any attack button will do for grabbing.
