Silver Sonic is a robot created by Dr. Eggman in the likeness of Sonic the Hedgehog, but much larger and covered in silver armor. Eggman has employed various models over the years in his efforts to defeat his Hedgehog nemesis.
The earliest known Silver Sonic prototype was actually not activated until after the first one was destroyed. The first encounter with a Silver Sonic model was aboard the Death Egg in the skies above Westside Island. After chasing Dr. Eggman to the flying battle station, Sonic encountered a large Silver Sonic and defeated it before facing the doctor himself in his Egg Destroyer Battlesuit. (VG: StH2)
Following Dr. Eggman's defeat aboard the Death Egg along with the destruction of Silver Sonic, Dr. Eggman attempted to throw together what little he had left in an effort to defeat Sonic the Hedgehog in an all new plan where he kidnapped Sonic's friend Tails. The Silver Sonic Prototype appeared to oppose Sonic the Hedgehog in the Scrambled Egg Zone, where he was betrayed by Breezie the Hedgehog. (VG: StH2-8b), StH: #269)
Another Silver Sonic, serving as a Badnik commander, arrived at the hidden construction site of the Knothole Freedom Fighters' Sky Patrol after several of its underlings discovered the craft and engaged Rotor Walrus, Sonic, Tails, and Big the Cat. The titanic robot swiftly moved in to attack the heroes, but its Spin-Dash was intercepted by Big, who threw it up into the range of the Sky Patrol's defensive turrets, allowing Rotor to cripple it with a devastating shot.

First Body (Silver Sonic - Prototype Version)
The prototype Silver Sonic was about the same size as Sonic himself, but equipped with a jetpack and crushing claw hands on the end of extending arms.
Second Body (Silver Sonic)
This Silver Sonic is modeled after Sonic the Hedgehog and his abilities, but is also much larger. The robot model is bulky but combat-capable with saw-blade quills, rocket boosters, and a metallic spikeball-version of the Spin Attack.
Newest Body (Silver Sonic)
Silver Sonic is massive and heavily armored, strong enough to rip through dense jungle vegetation. Being based on Sonic, it has the ability to perform a Spin-Dash and possesses great speed.
- Because Silver Sonic was in both the Genesis and Game Gear version of Sonic 2, this is technically the original mechanical Sonic, as its debut predates Metal Sonic.
- The prototype Silver Sonic is based on a boss from the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
- The prototype Silver Sonic and the mainstream Silver Sonic are actually unrelated in the video games - the prototype was the original Silver Sonic while the gigantic Silver Sonic is known as "Mecha Sonic"
- It was confirmed on Bumble cast that the prototype Silver Sonic was used because there was nothing left.
