Original Continuity

  The Robotnik Family is an Overlander family, with one of its earliest known members being Professor Gerald Robotnik. However, Prehistoric Mobius is known to have been inhabited by one Ivo Robughnik, who may have been an ancient ancestor of this family. It was united with the ancient Kintobor Family through the marriage of Ivo Kintobor to Gerald's daughter Bertha. The Robotnik family name continued through Gerald's son Geraldo Robotnik in the form of his daughter Maria, but it is unknown whether Geraldo had any other descendants following Maria's death. However, the Robotnik name was later taken up by Bertha's son Julian Kintobor, who became Dr. Ivo Robotnik, and by Colin Kintobor Jr., who became Snively Robotnik. (StH: #12, CSE)



Alternate Realities[]

Background Information[]

  • Robotnik was the name given to Dr. Eggman in the west prior to the Sonic Adventure era. In both the Archie and Fleetway comic series, Dr. Kintobor reversed his name to create Robotnik as part of his ascension to villainy. However, while both comics initially played this change as simply a reversal of his original name, the Archie Comics would later modify the history to accommodate the fact that Eggman's grandfather and cousin Maria were surnamed Robotnik. As such, Eggman's mother Bertha was given the maiden name of Robotnik, which Eggman later assumed in honor of his grandfather.
