Even though this is Pre-Reboot, this little part is still one of my all time favorite scenes with Shadow; seeing how he still can get down on himself after failing at something, but with the littlest of pushes and some thought, realizes he ‘didn’t fail, just set himself up for future success’.
So, @benignmilitancy, @greenyvertekins and @nuttyrabbit yesterday had talked about the size of Sonic and how you could sneak him into school in a backpack, and I couldn’t help but draw that idea. Mainly because I could see some kids in Sonic’s World trying (and failing, unlike our dear Ovi here) to convince Sonic to go into a backpack and stay there.
Tails and Amy are off-screen wondering how Ovi managed to even convince Sonic to even stay in the bag. Also, people are outside because I couldn’t be convinced that it wouldn’t be a strange scene in and of itself.
I’m gonna share the only two headcanons/theories/what have you that I got about the Boom interation of Eggman.
I don’t give this guy a lot of thought, for various reasons, but I got at least two for him… nothing fancy, but better than nothing.
Headcanon the 1st: His surname is literally “Eggman”, rather than Robotnik or Kintobor or the like- “Dr. Eggman” is his legitimate title and not a nickname or alias that he uses- and before you ask, yes, it IS in fact a legitimate surname in real life. I’m surprised too, but then, truth tends to be even stranger than fiction. Which ties into the second headcannon…
Headcanon the 2nd: … namely, that Eggman originally came from a family of chicken farmers. I based this off the concept art from Sonic Boom, which showcased various designs for a younger Eggman intended for an unused plot point involving time travel.
Personally I prefer the very first design…
But yeah, looking at him here he always struck me as looking like a bit of a teenaged redneck/hillbilly, so I sorta imagined that he was born to a long line of chicken farmers before going out on his own to become a mad scientist.
So, there you have it- my only two significant headcanons for Boom Eggman. Because for some reason I just can’t stop.
