The egg-shaped man with the master plan himself, the famed and acclaimed Dr. Robotnik has been a series staple since the beginning of it all. Debuting in the very first Sonic the Hedgehog game and appearing in quite possibly every Sega video game with the word "Sonic" in the title since, the Eggman is the true main villain of the Sonic series, and always will be. With countless armies of robots, and IQ over 300, and an endless supply of secret bases, he is a formidable foe. Whether he's turning Sonic's little pals into his mindless robot slaves, kidnapping Tails and Amy, harnessing some ancient power, or building badass robo-clones of his fuzzy rivals, Robuttnik's intentions are always the same - WORLD DOMINATION! In recent times, however, he has received the backhand from Sega more than once, and is repeatedly demoted in his roles - having generic monsters and ancient prophecies favored over his super huge death robots for final bosses, being defeated again and again by every possible character and their pet kitten, and forced into repeated walks of shame by teaming up with Sonic on one too many occasions, and more. But while seemingly every character has faced the 2003 Sammy merger negatively, his legacy still lives on in the fans of old, and many believe his return to grace is iminent. Though he's well known for his outings in many of the Sonic continuations, the AoStH incarnation of the doc has recently found a home on the ever popular Youtube Poop lineup - where the timeless quotes of the late Long John Baldry are forever enshrined in mish-mashed form for our ****s and giggles. But mostly ****s.
