From Sonic Retro

GerbilSoft noted over IRC that HVC-001 is the product number of the original Famicom. Before I add that (he can't right now), where did the name EGG-HVC-001 come from? - Andlabs 19:34, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. It's interesting this is the only boss named (except for Metal Sonic of course); perhaps it's because this is closer to an actual robot than the other bosses (except Metal Sonic of course)? Eh - Andlabs 21:21, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
My guess - they don't want to spoil the game -Black Squirrel 12:29, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
