9 Answers. They are different names for the same character. "Robotnik" is the character's real name while "Eggman" is a "common name taken after his shape." In various iterations of the franchise, they've chosen different names for him, with Robotnik being more of the English name, and Eggman the Japanese.

To us, he's Eggman, but in the rest of the world he's called Robotnik.

During the process they created the Chaos Emerald, yatta yatta yatta, Eggman invented the power sneakers (sonic's shoes), and when testing the shoes sonic ran with the speed of sound and transformed into sonic because he was too fast (dont know how that is supposed to be logical).

How did Sonic get his speed?

4 Answers. In short, Sonic was already pretty fast (for a hedgehog) when he first encountered Dr Robotnik. Robotnik provided him with "power sneakers" and allowed him to train on his "kinetic gyratoscope", resulting in Sonic being able to run at super-sonic speed.

Is Dr Eggman from Earth?

The only continuity that seems to imply that "Eggman" (in this case, Robotnik) isn't native to Sonic's World is the "SatAM" cartoon. Being that Robotnik was a human, he thought it was naturally his place to rule over all the animals. So basically in every continuity except Sonic X, Sonic's World is also Earth.
