Dr. Eggman Nega is a villainous scientist from Silver's Future who has often plagued both the Prime Zone's present day and the Sol Zone, where he and his robotic minions often clash with Blaze the Cat for possession of the Sol Emeralds.
Dealing with and Double-Crossing Eggman
Nega's first encounters with Blaze and Sonic the Hedgehog occurred when he made contact with Dr. Eggman and formed an alliance with him. Working together, the pair set out to build an Eggman Empire spanning both worlds they sought to conquer by stealing the Chaos Emeralds and Sol Emeralds from each other's respective nemeses. They succeeded in this plan, but their efforts were ultimately thwarted by Super Sonic and Burning Blaze. Undaunted, the pair set out to claim an even greater power: the Jeweled Scepter, a powerful artifact from Blaze's world. Creating Captain Whisker and his crew to collect it, the doctors were disappointed by their minions' failure and intervened personally, only to suffer defeat yet again. Nega then attempted to destroy Blaze's world out of vengeance, but was thwarted thanks to her friend Marine the Raccoon. (VG: SR, SRA)
Nega later set his sights on the present of Mobius, and captured Eggman so that he could impersonate him without interference. He then began using a special camera device to convert objects and even living beings into photographs, intending to put the entire world in his "collection." However, his true identity was eventually discovered and he was thwarted by the efforts of Sonic, Shadow the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, and Silver the Hedgehog, the latter having pursued Nega from their home time. Nega wouldn't admit defeat easily, returning with another scheme to gain absolute power through the manipulation of a creature known as the Ifrit. However, the heroes who had defeated him before were joined by Miles "Tails" Prower, Metal Sonic, Rouge the Bat, and Espio the Chameleon, and together they defeated Nega's scheme. (VG: SRiv, SRiv2)
Eggman Nega is a villainous scientist, fully willing to seize objects of power despite the risk to the world he apparently inhabits or wishes to conquer.
His design appears reminiscent of the older Dr. Eggman from the Genesis era, albeit with the colors reversed, a longer nose, a white mustache (suggesting he is at an elderly age), pointy blue sunglasses, and visor-styled goggles instead of normal ones.
- Nega's full name is Eggman Nega. However his appearance and full name are currently limited in the comics due to issues with SEGA, but Ian Flynn hopes that that will be rectified in the future. (1)
- Fans often debate if the Eggman Nega from the Sonic Rush series is the same as the one from Sonic Rivals or is a completely different person. They have entirely different origins, he is Dr. Eggman's alternate counterpart in Sonic Rush and in Sonic Rivals he is his descendant.
- Curiously, the characters that don't find out about Eggman Nega's "future" origin in the Sonic Rivals series consist of only the characters that have knowledge from the Sonic Rush series about his "dimension" origin.
- In the Sonic Boom 2012 event, Takashi Iizuka has offically stated that Eggman Nega and Silver are from the future.
