Dr. Robotnik AKA Egghead And Why People Love Him

Sonic the hedgehog being the central character of his own video game is of course why so many people love him. But there are many people out there who also love the villain character of Dr. Robotnik, also known as Egghead.

The nickname egghead has a not so obvious origin. It is true that it refers to his portly figure but it was originally the name given to the character by the team Sonic. Later however, when the time came for the US release, they went with the name Dr. Robotnik. But since Sonic calls him Egghead all the time, there had to be a reconciliation. So the game makers cleverly added an introduction where Sonic first meets Dr. Robotnik and starts calling him Egghead to tease him.

Egghead or Robotnik whatever you call him, you have to admit that without him ‘hatching’ newer plans to take over Mobius (Sonic’s home planet) there wouldn’t be much action taking place on Mobius. So as Robotnik comes up with one far-fetched plan after another, we derive obvious pleasure from knowing that Sonic is going to foil them for certain.

And it is perhaps this certainty that makes us pity the poor guy. No one quite knows how he went on to be a ‘Doctor’ or what his PhD was on but one thing’s for sure – he must be sitting on quite a lot of money. He has to because he has the tenacity and the resources to build and send innumerable robots to stop our hero. Although, it is possible that is an environment friendly fellow who recycles his robots out the parts of the previous ones that were beaten to a pulp by Sonic.

And despite his sincere evil efforts to take over the planet, we still feel a kind of love for him. Let’s face it, he is not the most evil of villains and he hardly has the potential to be really ‘evil’. He is just there so that our hero has something to do and save a cute girl time and again.

Has anyone really wondered what goes on through Robotnik’s mind every time Sonic and his friends foil his newest ‘brilliant’ scheme? May be he should get out more instead of staying cooked up in that egg-shaped ship of his. That way he can lose some weight and not be called egghead. But then again, old nicknames and old habits are hard to shake off, very hard.

Thus it is quite apparent that the battle between Sonic and Robotnik (wow, they even rhyme together) will go on forever – much to the delight of the millions of fans worldwide.

It is possible that Robotnik likes the whole process and doesn’t really intend to take over Mobius. It is undeniable that things will get really boring if either the hero or the villain is taken out of the equation. So here’s to Robotnik’s health, may he live a long and evil life.
