Cuz he’s an opportunistic dick like that. Not really surprising from a guy who’s willing to take any advantage he can get without a second thought, which is often why his ego and pride gets the better of him and screws him over as often as that meddling hedgehog and his friends.

I have never heard of Sonic Pinball Party until now...

What kind of fan are you? Get your pen and paper and start learning that deep Sonic mythology.

Sonic X on Leapster, Tails Music Maker, Ghost Shooting arcade game. It will all be on exams, mister!

It happens in Sonic Pinball Party

Tails also get mind controlled.

Okay, I knew about Tails, but not about Amy. Which I don't know why, considering there weren't that many recurring characters in that time period and most of the spinoffs mainly focused on the Classic Five.

Because he's a dick. Pretty simple really.

There's a purely pragmatic reason too.

It buys him a little more extra time to get away if the robots are preoccupied with Amy. Making sure someone else is an easy target (and ergo, you aren't) makes perfect sense if you only care about your own well-being.

Seeing Zavok lose this easily is just sad to watch and this comic keeps saying all their powers come from the emeralds which isn't right. 

Aside from what everyone said, there's also the fact he's pretty much defenceless. The other possible options/risks were:

  • Amy stands her ground and keep the zombot busy, but him running away may catch their attention.
  • He could run away from the fight, but Amy may try sabotaging him somehow (she wouldn't, but he would consider that a possibility)
  • Both run away in different direction, the zombot may decide to go after him. 
  • Both run away in the same direction with the zombots chasing both. Gonna be harder to use her as a distraction at that point.

If he kicks/push Amy into a Zombot, he can at least ensure safety from the threat(s) in front of him.

Yea, but he specifically pointed why he kicked her. That's the dick part. 

I thought Firey was a girl?

But then that's the ambiguity of anonymity for ya.

SPP kind of makes the plot of Sonic Colors hilarious, considering that Eggman already had the capacity for much more effective and long-lasting mind control before harnessing the Wisps.

What did he use in Pinball Party?

It still feels like Eggman shouldn't have kick Amy as it just turns her immediately stopping all her movement making the zombies go to the next target which is Eggman. This self absorbed men in a life or death situation sure does take his time leaving someone behind.

Any seconds the zombots waste attacking someone else is a few extra seconds they aren't attacking and trying to infect Eggman. Not only does he dislike Amy, but he's a selfish asshole, him doing something like that makes perfect sense.

That is true. It probably would've made more sense if she had been standing beside him when Big approached and he smacked her on the back to go to blows while he makes a run for it.

But then that's Dick Dastardliness for ya.

Late but whatever. I had a bad impression first but reading again, the issue is pretty alright. Climax is a tad too predictable (way to go with the self-awareness) but the whole moment of built desperation followed by a cheerful relief is a felt payoff. It must be how awesome the Super Forms are in nature, they just don't fail to impress and get the hype flowing. You can hear some epic theme in your head just by looking at them.

Spoiler

Eggman's character got this fluctuation between a Archie-tier merciless tyrant and cracking humor with his clumsiness and karma-induced fails. It helps artists don't hold back when drawing him with exaggerated expressions, but beyond that I'll just lazily say it works because he's such a charismatic villain. Him kicking Amy and almost killed by Big and Froggy was hilarious, I'll give them that.

 

As for the Tails thing... I don't know. The context is completely justified and I've already defended it myself, but it feels dirty to do so. Did Flynn or Thomas really need to make the exact same hated pose? Are they just trying to anger fans or prove their writing is much better? It obviously is, but referencing a universally despised moment doesn't feel right. I just don't want Tails to get even more hate than he already gets these days and It would be nice if they didn't contribute to it. I'm all in for letting him act like a kid though, was nitpicking this from IDW so far.

It's Tails, he'll be fine.

 

Where was Omega during all this, actually?

According to the fans he hasn't been fine for over a decade but- oh you're being sarcastic

 

Omega's head must be chilling on a ruin or inside the ship just before Eggman gets his property back to kick off the next arc.

Or can't really be bothered, but whatever.

I do know that the last time we saw him was with Cream, so the former is a decent spot.
