Dr. Eggman’s version of Jim Carrey will be different from anything Sonic the Hedgekey fans have seen before, with a few notable exceptions.
Dr. Eggman In The Game
Eggman changes in purpose and personality throughout the Sonic franchise. Originally, he was a genius scientist bent on turning the entire world into his own mechanical utopia. He designs his own advanced vehicles which he pilots in the boss levels of some Sonic games. In early games, he enslaved animals inside robots to serve as his minions.
Eggman is more widely known for his design. Classically, he’s a rotund man with a small head and a giant mustache. His outfit has stayed mostly consistent: black pants, red shirt, and signature circular glasses. The film’s use of that design, as with Sonic’s, is complicated.
Dr. Robotnik In The Movie
There are two distinct looks for the movie Robotnik. The most predominant doesn’t resemble the game character much. He wears a black trenchcoat, has a full head of hair, and his mustache looks more hipster than evil.
This time around, Sonic’s speed comes from a power that Robotnik hopes to harness. This will probably backfire and lead to Robotnik’s other look, which is more in line with the games: bald head, bushy mustache, and red jacket. Both designs do have glasses, which resemble steampunk goggles.
More concerning is Robotnik’s personality. The trailers showcase old-school Jim Carrey with a manic delivery reminiscent of Ace Ventura. Carrey hasn’t been this unhinged in a while, which could be a nod to Sonic’s 1990’s origin. However, this isn’t the Robotnik that fans know, who is usually more of a villain trope than a buffoon.
