The Classic by PsuC The Classic by PsuC
Or actually, “The Classic ‘joke’ ”. :XD:

Most of you might’ve already known that in those old games, Eggman flees from his machine and outruns Sonic to another machine every time. That’s one very important unexplained mystery about Eggman’s true strength and speed.

This idea is not original, of course. :P I’ve seen some artworks similar to this around here, it’s just that I wanted to make one after watching that new Sonic trailer with classic Sonic in it. =P

Just a quick art.^^ Sonic & Eggman are drawn in classic style for the simplicity.

Well if you think about it with sonic having to do all that running just to get to him it stands to reason he'd be tired enough to let Eggman get away but they sat longer legs mean a longer stride.. So who knows?

I always thought that he runs faster because his legs are longer than Sonic's.

Eggman's secret to outrunning Sonic is simple. All he has to do is believe that McDonald's is closing in 10 mins. :P

Fun fact: Eggman was originally to be the good guy, so he may be just as fast as Sonic, though we've never seen him ever have to run yet.

Solutions:
1. Eggman is a cyborg. His limbs and many muscles are machine based
2. He's not fat. To fund his Badniks, Robotnik disguises himself with a fat suit and moustache
3. He's all muscle, baby!
4. Eggman is the true Ultimate Lifeform
4. Chaos Steroids

Note. That Robotnik is just round, Eggman has a gut.

Classic Sonic is fat, modern Sonic is fit

All those chilli dogs went to his gut. x3
