The E-1001 Egg Pawn is a rotund humanoid E-Series robot created by Dr. Eggman. It is built in a similar likeness to the doctor himself and is designed as a general multi-task unit, from performing general labour to combat. These robots first appeared in the Sonic Heroes video game and have appeared in many other games since, serving as the primary foot soldiers in Eggman's army. They have been seen carrying a wide variety of tools and weapons and their bodies have often been customized to suit what tasks they're assigned or the environment they operate in.
- Standard - The standard Egg Pawn has an orange-coloured body with blue optics. They have no additional features on their bodies and wield a variety of weapons such as lasers, machine guns, bazookas and lances. They often carry shields as well, which come in various types such as spiked, cinder and ballistic.
- Casino - Egg Pawns assigned to casino-themed areas, such as Casino Park in Sonic Heroes. They come in various colours and sometimes wear bunny ears on their heads.
- Knight - Egg Knights are stronger than typical Egg Pawns and act as squad commanders. They are identified by their yellow bodies and a mohawk atop their heads. They always carry lances and spiked shields. If an Egg Knight is destroyed in Sonic Heroes, the Pawns it commands will self-destruct.
- Solid - Egg Pawns outfitted with sturdy body armour that Sonic's attacks cannot break. Only a power-type character like Knuckles the Echidna can destroy these robots.
- Parade - Egg Pawns adorned with a marching band uniform. The trumpets they carry are actually cannons.
- Chef - Egg Pawns wearing chef hats. They wield wooden spoons and egg whisks.
- Greeter - Egg Pawns that greet new guests to Dr. Eggman's Interstellar Amusement Park in Sonic Colours. If they spot Sonic, they will try to club him with their welcome signs.
- Construction - In Sonic Colours, Egg Pawns can be seen wearing hard hats in a construction site on Planet Wisp. They will attempt to attack Sonic by throwing their pickaxes like boomerangs.
- Ogre - Armour-clad Pawns that carry maces into battle.
- Samurai - Pawns adorned with samurai armour and wielding katanas.
