Eggman Fleet's Reveal is the 18th episode in the second season, and the 70th overall episode of Sonic X. In the English dub, it is known as Terror on the Typhoon.
While fighting the Metarex, the Blue Typhoon tries to rescue a small ship caught in the crossfire. They follow it to a perilous plasma cloud, but when they try to pull it out of danger, its pilot turns out to be Decoe. He has led the Blue Typhoon right into the path of a Metarex fleet...led by Dr. Eggman himself.
Though Eggman is cooperating with the three remaining Metarex bosses for the moment, he finds their strategies to be incredibly ruthless. The Metarex are willing to destroy many of their own ships just to avoid wasting time with a slower offense. The Blue Typhoon counters with the Sonic Driver, but Eggman raises a shield that stops Sonic and isolates the Blue Typhoon from the Metarex fleet. Tails is quite shaken that his weapon failed to work, and the Blue Typhoon takes heavy damage, leaving Sonic and Knuckles badly injured, and the Master Emerald at low power. The Metarex prepare to attack again when the shield comes down in five minutes, and Eggman slips away to the Crimson Egg.
Tails devises a plan to use Ring Road to turn the plasma cloud against the Metarex, and through careful use of their shields, they are able to escape. Eggman also escapes by hiding behind the Metarex mother ship. Though Tails' confidence as captain was shaken during the experience, Sonic and Knuckles reassure him that he did a great job.
