Dr Eggman. Eternally underrated. by Vertekins Dr Eggman. Eternally underrated. by Vertekins

ALL HAIL THE EGGMAN EMPIRE! :worship: :worship: :worship: :iconeggmanplz:

Game Dr Eggman is awesome. Plain and simple.

Very distinct from his extremely overrated and in-name-only SatAM incarnation - SatAM Robotnik is OVERRATED by Vertekins

He's such an awesome combination of whimsical buffoon and great villain. He can be comical and silly but also daunting and malicious and his cleverness is downright diabolical.

He knows how to manipulate Sonic's arrogance and tendency to jump into situations blindly as evidenced by what he accomplished in Sonic Adventure 2 and Unleashed. He held all the aces during the fake emerald plan because he already knew what they were up to and he exploited Sonic's confidence in the plan, coming this close to killing him. In Unleashed, he allowed Sonic to follow him to that cannon and then to belittle him so that he was distracted long enough for him to snatch the emeralds away from him, turn him into the Werehog and free Dark Gaia from the earth.

Whilst he is perfectly eager to fire missiles at densely populated cities when he's at his wit's end, you can tell that he doesn't want to win like that because senseless destruction and killing is very beneath him, it'd bring no satisfaction to his genius mind. Destroying half of the moon was an example and he wouldn't have gone through with destroying the planet with it because it'd go against his desire to establish the Eggman Empire on it. His actions such as imprisoning small animals inside his badnik's and capturing and converting Wisps are a means to an end rather than being accomplished for the sake of being evil. Certainly his actions are cruel but they're not cruel for cruelty's sake.

His sheer degree of knowledge regarding his field and his robotic creations are incredible. This man designed and constructed two Death Eggs, the metallic nightmare known as Metal Sonic, the interstellar amusement park in Colours and the fortresses and all of those marvelous boss robots you see throughout the series as well as those charming Badnik's.

He also has depth regarding his reasons for becoming a scientist, wanting to out-do his beloved grandfather. His fixation with attention, fame and the media spotlight and the wrong way in which he goes about things is what sets him apart from Gerald who wanted to make people happy through the power of science. But even then Eggman has interesting and moralistic traits such as his feminism, romanticism and his respect for even his arch enemy Sonic.

Whatsmore, he's appealing because of his kiddishness. He loves making exuberant theme parks that echo his madness and love of fun fantastically such as Eggmanland and Circus Park. And need I mention the fun room that's a part of his living quarters on-board the Egg Carrier with ride-on Egg Mobiles? :XD:

:phew: Explanation for his awesomeness over.

Eggman has become a little goofy over the years but his plans are still threatening, and he shows interesting sides at times. Eggman was always one of my favorites when it comes to the games because I love the bosses when it's his robots.

Eggman isn't evil, some say. I assure anyone who played Sonic CD and got to see at least one bad future (preferably Palmtree Panic, Tidal Tempest and Quartz Quadrant) would disagree on that. I think.

Are you really sure of that? From what I've gathered he's one of the most popular characters in the franchise {And for good reason}.

I only saw one Sonic Boom episode and I already love how they portray Eggman.

I'm sorry, but...Dr. Eggman is a bit overrated.

1. Yes, I know that's Japan's name for Robotnik (which I find to be more of a menacing name, and makes more sense since he has a vast army of ROBOTS), but it doesn't really inspire menace and terror, which then makes it necessary for Sonic and his friends to be around to stop him.

2.  As of the latest Sonic games, he's kind of been pushed to the background as a downright goofy character, while these newer villains take over the role he's held since the very first Sonic game.

Archie Eggman is OP in a way because his tech was designed to beat Archie Sonic so he can solo a lot of verses.

I love the guy so much that I made a cosplay hoodie of him that I am wearing now and will wear to Momocon if I can get my drivers liscense in time for the con, but enough about that, Eggman has the most badass theme music even more badass than I am All of me and All hail shadow! And I love Sweet mountain! I wonder what the gift shops there are like! Probably have chocolate Eggmans and lollipops like the Eggman logo. And Aquarium park is a dream for anyone who loves anime, manga, cosplay, or is enthusiashic about Japan! And I love those pink crabs in final egg, those might be the female robots because by cartoon logic pink=female so those exploding robots are meant to be an elite girl platoon to emphasise Eggman's feminism. The pink robots in Casino Park might also be female by cartoon logic. Overall, Eggman is a hillarous villain that has his badass moments as well as his funny momnets.

I've always liked Eggman as a kid - he was so funny, but that didn't mean that he was any less dangerous.  He's quite an interesting character to look at, as he's bumbling and even childish, but there's a reason why he's a genius (look at everything that guy's built!), and it's the times that he's not being a childish oaf that's quite frightening and shows that he really means business.  0w0

I think it's villains that seem so goofy and non-threatening outside, but reveal a much darker side when pushed too far that really intrigue me.  :D

In a good way because he is enthusiastic about the doctor because the Eggster played a huge part in his life, and in his Sa2 LP he had a huge geekgasm when Eggman was playable and it was hilarious seeing his reaction.

Well, while I do also enjoy SatAM's take on Robotnik (if for no reason other than the fact that he's voiced by Jim Cummings, who is awesome), I agree with you on pretty much everything you said here praising Eggman. He can be comical without losing all of his menace, rather, he's just the right blend of both and he is genuinely an interesting character for not being a total monster. And yeah, I also love how he can use Sonic's arrogance to his advantage.
Fantastic rant.
