Top 7

    If we had included any of Eggman/Dr. Robotnik's attempts in the comics or cartoons, there are some pretty bad ones in those (like poisoned fastfood).

    Love the list but i feel as said by others that number 2 shouldve been Number 1 but you guys put reasonable reasons for number 1

    There was a Robotnik pinball machine in Sonic CD, I can't remember if it was hard or not but that sounds increidble convoluted to kill your enemy reaching Wile E. Coyote levels of complexity.

    Some of the attempts in the original cartoon were even more elaborate and useless than these. Good list Towelly.

    The single most pathetic attempt Eggman ever did against Sonic's life was in Sonic the Hedgehog for the Game Gear. He literally just flew around near the top of the screen in his default ball ship, going back and fourth without any indication that he wanted to kill you. Sure, he would eventually "attack" you by flying slightly faster near the bottom of the screen, but only if you refrain from attacking him for about a minute. You can kill him in about 5-10 seconds, and he won't even try to attack you.

    Definitely this one. I always thought his real attack though was to waste your time while your Game Gear's six AA batteries quickly died.

    Batteries these days actually run the Game Gear for a surprisingly long time. No, really!

    Hahaha, after this comment I looked it up and found a video where the Game Gear runs longer than a 3DS!

    Awesome! Go, 1990 :P

    There is a way to kill Sonic, lock him in a room with Amy Rose and there. When that door opens, there will nothing, but Amy covered in blood with a twisted smile on her face and covered in Sonic's blood. Or them sleeping together might happen and Amy having Sonic's children.

    Death by snu-snu!

    Number 2 should be number 1! I simply knew it would be on this list. Robotnik literally RESCUES Sonic from certain doom just to make him do a pitifully easy boos battle. I nearly died of laughter when I first witnessed it!

    It was close! But that whole 'staning in the pistons' thing is ridiculous. No wonder he installed a viewing window in the Death Egg's Silver Sonic room in Sonic 2.

    I remember some of the other bosses in Sonic 3D Blast being equally useless, I think the second one had a similar mechanism required to defeat it. But they looked damned snazzy though, lawls. The final boss in the original Sonic gave me a lot of trouble though, even if it is ridiculous (also, bonus points for hilarious usage of a Dragon's Den "I'm out".)
  • RODTheMaster - October 14, 2013 12:40 p.m.

    Extremely funny, Towell. I hope the US guys let you call in to RadioRadar to talk about this.
  • DarthPunk - October 14, 2013 11:13 a.m.

    Given the sheer amount of times I died on the Under Ground Zone boss I'd say it was actually a pretty effective method of killing Sonic
  • Shnubby - October 14, 2013 1:29 p.m.

    But Robotnik could have GUARANTEED Sonic's death by just letting him fall and burn in the lava!

    This was awesome, the pincer in particular is just ludicrous. Can't wait to hear it on the podcast.
