Big Arm by NextGrandcross Big Arm by NextGrandcross
I don't think any of Eggman's early contraptions had particular names, but the Sonic 3 Final Boss has been usually been dubed the "Big Arm" fitting cause of it's design.

Anyway, this is the Big Arm model seen in Sonic Generations (3DS version), and man, IT WAS A PAIN IN THE ASS TO UST DRAW! I was mainly working from my Nintendo Power Issue witch had a concept art pic of the Big Arm, and their was just way too much detail on it, drove me mad I say to color this sucker in.

Buh, glad to be done with this.

Big Arm looks about as difficult as it is to beat (for a first-timer to the boss, that is...)! This is awesome!

One of my favourite Sonic final bosses ever, and it's not on the console version of Sonic Generations! It better be downloadable content in the future! ...I don't really have many games that I want to get on the 3DS, so why shell out so much money for just one game?

I remember the first time fighting this thing in Sonic 3- Robotnik's 'egg rocket' was toast, and instead of grumping, he flew into the deck of the Death Egg... then the sky turned dark and I saw this huge spiky thing drop for a split second, I was like 'what the-??' than there he was in this monstrous, armed war machine crowned with spikes.. I was like - "Oh, shoot...!" I used to call this one "Hands of Doom" since its slam can negate the Super Sonic mode....

I already have Genrations for the ps3, is the 3DS version worth it? I know this and Casino Night zone is in that one, so I'm getting curious about it.

I clearly remember the day I ascended the clouds below the Death Egg, finishing his, what I called, Egg Tank, and seeing him float back up the screen. I thought that the ship was falling, but no, we were going up. Then, a huge, what I thougt was a spiked arm flashed down the screen. I was scared out of my mind, and when I saw that Robotnik had his trump card here all along, I nearly pissed myself in fear. This wil always be my favorite boss fight and song ever.

When I wasn't crying myself to sleep over all te continues I used to beat this guy, I respectfully called him Malicious Fingers, because my dad said, after I lost to him the third time, " That Robotnik has some malicious fingers on that contraption of his". I also called him "Mecha Arms" sometimes.

Not to mention that fact that even if you did Super Sonic, Robotnik can cancel that out with a slam of those mighty mechanical arms.
