Eggman was a sinistar guy in that game

I liked him better when he was actually CALLED Robotnik... Didn't this game at least allude to Robotnik being his real name in the original version? I swear they removed all references to the Robotnik name from this re-release...

Wasn't "Robotnik" the name the American cartoon or comic gave him? He's been known as Eggman since the first Sonic game. But I guess Sonic Team of Japan liked the idea of Eggman being a rude nickname Sonic and his friends call the bad doctor. Doesn't explain why he adopted the name for his world domination, though.....

Yeah, Robotnik isn't the official name. It's what us 'Muricans came up with.

Eggman has always been the official name for him since the first Sonic game, so you're correct there.

You've got that completely wrong.

His nickname has ALWAYS (underline) been Eggman in Japan, and since Robotnik is something us americans came up with (it isn't official), Eggman will always be the official name, mate.

Sonic Adventure is slightly non-canon in that regard. (though SA is still canon in every other part except that one scene)

Of course it's official. I agree that he has always been called Dr, Eggman in Japan. But that does not negate his exposition.

'Dr. Eggman was born as Ivo Robotnik, the grandson of the brilliant scientist Professor Gerald Robotnik. In childhood, Robotnik looked up to his grandfather as a hero, and believed him to be a great man who had done his best to help mankind. Thus the doctor decided to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and became a scientist. However, at some point he became obsessed with the idea of the entire world under his rule, and using his unmatched genius, began his plans.'

^^^^

Thats Sega's own backround story...

Also he was called Dr. Robotnik in the original UK release of Sonic the Hedgehog. Just because he was refered to as Eggman in the Jap versions does not make it his official name.

'The original English instruction manual for his 1991 debut game Sonic the Hedgehog described the character's full name as "Doctor Ivo Robotnik" while the Japanese version's instruction manual for the same game called him "Doctor Eggman". In 1998's Sonic Adventure, the character was called both "Doctor Robotnik" and "Doctor Eggman" in the English version,'

I wasnt trying to knock down a point, i was "just throwin it out there" because it was a, "fun fact". I know that SEGA of Japan is more important that SEGA of america. the people that get religous about calling egman, "robotnik" and yell at anyone that calls him eggman just doesn't know that "robotnik" is just a name that SEGA of america gave eggman.

Another fun fact thats more fun: if you go to google translate, set the translator to english to japanese and then type in "robotnik", you will see that on under the second box you will see that the japanese word translates to "egguman". Just a neat little thing i found out about while randomly putting things in the translator...

I was just trying to change the subject like you guys did. That whole argument about Eggman's name wasnt needed either. :\
