After the Eggman Fleet had been dealt heavy damage by the Black Arms, Dr. Eggman decided to fall back to his base to formulate a new strategy. However, the Doctor found himself pursued by G.U.N. forces, which were not wasting an opportunity to attack the Eggman Empire while Eggman was already weakened. The vanguard of the G.U.N. forces was accompanied by E-123 Omega, likewise determined to kick Eggman while he was down. Eggman attempted to flee from the Iron Jungle in his Egg Balloon aircraft. At some point afterwards, it was sold to Breezie the Hedgehog, who had it hung from a ceiling in Casino Park for display purposes. It was seen hanging next to the Egg Albatross and its component, the Egg Hawk. (VG: ShaH, StH: #268)
- Egg Balloon was based on the aircraft of the same name in the video game, Shadow the Hedgehog. It was unnamed in the comic, but is considered tier 2 canon by this site's canon policy, as it does not contradict already established canon from tier 1.
