Metal Sonic is the secondary antagonist of the series 'Sonic The Hedgehog'. He is Doctor Eggman's ultimate creation and a clone of Sonic.


Created by the evil genius Dr. Eggman, Metal Sonic was designed to accomplish what Eggman had failed to do - defeat Sonic the Hedgehog. Metal was meant to be not just Sonic the Hedgehog's equal, but surpass him. Using a custom chipset and A.I. developed by Dr. Eggman, the doctor devoted much more attention to Metal than any of the other members in his robot army. With Metal Sonic at his side, Dr. Eggman set his sights on the mysterious Little Planet that appears over Never Lake only one month out of the year.

When Sonic and Metal first met, they had promised a race at Stardust Speedway. When Sonic reached Metal they began their race, with the loser ramming into a wall and getting killed by Robotnick's laser, Sonic won and the metallic copy was not seen fr a long period of time.

Alternate Forms

  • Metal Sonic Kai
  • Neo Metal Sonic
  • Metal Overlord

Metal Sonic Kai

By absorbing a Dark Ring, which was originally a Chaos Ring, Metal transforms into the gargantuan, crimson, Metal Sonic Kai. Metal Sonic Kai can fire lasers and disassemble his body parts  to attack his opponents.

Neo Metal Sonic

With the power of a Chaos Emerald or enough copied data, Metal can become Neo Metal Sonic. With this form, Neo Metal Sonic can use his electrokinesis and data copying to a higher level. Neo Metal Sonic can also shapeshift.

Metal Madness

After copying Team Sonic, Team Dark, Team Rose, Team Chaotix, and Chaos’s data through Chocola and Froggy, as well as adding on large amounts of scrap metal to his body, Metal Sonic attempted to turn into his ultimate form, Metal Overlord. He, however, first turned into the incomplete Metal Madness. In this form, he becomes gigantic and looks like a dragon. He also has new attacks. He is able to launch the spines on his back as missiles that can track the opponent, and when they hit the ground, they will sprout into indestructible sharp spike formations which will shatter automatically after some time, use his right hand to produce a powerful and large column of fire, shoot his claws as missiles which traps his enemies in crystal cages (his claws will automatically regenerate afterwards) with his left hand, and swipe opponents with his large tail. His weak spots in this form are the glowing markers on the left, right, and front side of his lower body.

Metal Overlord

With enough copied energy and the power of chaos, Neo Metal Sonic can become the aerial Metal Overlord. Metal Overlord gains the ability to fly, fire homing missiles, shoot plasma beams, and Ice missiles strong enough to restrain Super Sonic for a few seconds.

    • Created multiple dust clouds the size of city blocks from clashes with Sonic
  • Can send multiple steel platforms flying through the air unintentionally when using his V. Maximum Overdrive Attack.

  • Metal Overlord could keep up with Super Sonic.


  • Taken several beatings from Sonic, Knuckles, and Shadow.
  • Can survive without half of his body.
  • Tanked the Tornado getting rammed into him at high speeds.
  • Survived getting hit by Sonic’s Spin Attack which launched him through a glass panel of a rocket (that Knuckles couldn’t even break) that then exploded, he survived this when he was already badly damaged.
  • Tanked a hit powerful enough to dislodge a mountain sized rock.
  • Metal Overlord can tank hits from Super Sonic.
  • Survived atmospheric re-entry.
  • Blocked Chaos Spear and ESP. 



  • Thinks everyone is below him.
  • Metal being designed specifically to take the hedgehog down makes it difficult for him to battle foes who aren’t the blue blur himself or bare similarities to him. While he can still fare well against certain opponents, this weakness still comes back to bite him eventually.
  • Metal Sonic isn’t a perfect A.I., with his coding being preset with every buildup, and thus isn’t capable of improvising on the spot with each fight. Anything too unsimilar to the foes he faces should reasonably mess him up.
  • V. Maximum Overdrive and Ring Spark Field Attacks leaves Metal weakened for a few seconds.
