Oh no that's just one of his specials, you see, if your a power type, you can ride into certain obstacles and just punch them away, look up Eggman Sonic riders on youtube and you should see him use his bare hands (or rather gloved hands XD) to punch away obstacles
..you know, NO joking at all, Eggman actually looks like he'd be able to be a competitin, and he could hold his ground. If Sonic doesn't hit though,you know. Great picture, and TOTALLY original! Seems really classic actually, surprised nobodies came out with this idea already. Geat work.
Oh, on 2nd thought, if eggman could survive the WRECKING of an ENTIRE BATTLE SHIP, the EGGCARRIER, in the middle of an overflown ocean, a blast from Perfect Chaos, and outrun Sonic when he was younger, AND survive the mass destruction of a BLACK HOLE, and the DESTRUCTION of a EGGMAN BASE.....
He could stand chance. When you think about it, both of them are, extremely powerful, like EXTREMELY powerful.
