Dr. Robotnik (also know as Dr. Eggman) is one of the greatest characters ever created. How could you not love a person with an IQ of 300 and a such a strong love for his kind that he wants to use animals versus animals? He was actually choosen as the main charecter in the games until Sonic showed. Unfortunately the people at Sega were forced by vegetarian corporations and multi-millionaires to choose Sonic and turn Dr. Robotnik into a villain. But that did not stop Robotnik from becoming more famous than Sonic among gaming fans, because they understood that Robotnik is trying to help humanity - not destroy it.
