I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
Eggman can be summoned legitimately in all versions of the game by using the Magic Lamp. Once Chocobo has been summoned 20 times, Eggman will be summoned instead until the Magic Lamp is recharged. When summoned, Eggman's sprite does not actually appear in both the Japanese version and the English version, and will try to use Egg Chop and fail, displaying the message "Too far away!" or "Can't reach" in the PlayStation version.
If the Eggman is hacked into the game as an encounterable enemy, its name will appear blank when fighting it due to not having a name in the game's code. It will take on the stats of whatever enemy it is replacing, including attacks, HP, and items dropped. The video below shows a battle against a set of Eggman enemies that have replaced the Grenade enemy.

Etymology EditThe Eggman is a mascot character from the Hanjuku Hero (literally "Soft-Boiled Hero") series of Japan-only video games, created by Takashi Tokita in 1988.
- In Final Fantasy XIV's Easter event of 2015, the player characters got the title "Half-Boiled Hero", a possible reference to Eggman and his origins as the "soft-boiled hero".
