Prelate Horde

A horde of Prelates summoned by Enerjak.

Prelates are robotic slave-warriors under the service of Enerjak that are created using the extracted Cores of Mobians. They appear as sleek, silver metallic beings with few defining features aside from their colored stripes and eyes. So far, the only prelates seen have originated from Dark Mobius, a world that was conquered by Enerjak.



Enerjak and many of his victims

Knuckles the Echidna of Dark Mobius, having become the malevolent Enerjak, learned at some point during his efforts to conquer his world how to extract the Cores of other living beings and use them to create his Prelates. These beings served as the enforcers of his will, notably those created from the Cores of the defeated Chaotix. After eliminating most of the resistance forces on his world, Enerjak began dispatching the Prelates to other Zones in search of other worlds that he might conquer for his amusement. By chance, Prelate-V traveled to the year 3437 P.X.E. in Mobius Prime's future, where it encountered Silver the Hedgehog. Silver followed it back to Dark Mobius, and Enerjak quickly dispatched his elite Prelates to challenge the time traveler. The Dark Freedom Fighters quickly became involved, and there followed a massive battle in which Enerjak summoned an army of Prelates. Though all members of the Freedom Fighters except one lost their Cores, the Prelates were defeated when Jani-Ca and Silver bested Enerjak, draining him of his powers. (SU: #25, #26, #27, #28)


Prelates are robot-like in that their eyes act as both energy weapons and HUDs displaying objectives and orders as well as scanning their area of perception and assessing subjects of interest. They also demonstrate enhanced strength and resilience as they can quickly reboot if forced offline, making them persistent threats. While they can be destroyed by strong, precise attacks, they can simply be remade anew as the Core always remains intact. They also are capable of generating portals that appear similar to corrupted Super Warp Rings which allow them to travel through time and to alternate zones. Unlike the beings that their cores are extracted from, Prelates are incapable of feeling pain, nor can they experience emotions or think for themselves, making them autonomous, non-living weapons.

Background Information[]

  • By textbook definition, a prelate is a high-ranking member of a clergy who is an ordinary or who ranks in precedence with ordinaries. This means that said prelate has ordinary power to execute the church's law by reason of his or her office. The word derives from the Latin prælatus, the past participle of præferre, which means "carry before," "be set above or over" or "prefer"; hence, a prelate is one set over others.
  • Espio's Prelate, Prelate-E, is shown to have great agility and can throw shuriken bearing his Core's color as an alternative to his eye-laser attack. This would imply that the Prelates may retain the natural abilities of the individual whose core is used to base their form around.
    • Amy's Prelate is shown using a manifestation of her Piko Piko Hammer, Jet's Prelate is also shown using a manifestation of his Extreme Gear, and Monkey Khan's Prelate as well is shown using a manifestation of his Atom-Bat. which adds further support to this implication.
