SCR-GP is a playable character and an enemy racer in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity on the Wii and the PlayStation 2. A line of Eggman robots produced by Meteor Tech, the SCR-GPs go insane after coming into contact with the Arks of the Cosmos, rampaging all over Monopole and hunting down Team Sonic and the Babylon Rogues.
These robots race without using Extreme Gear, instead curling up into a wheel configuration and blazing forwards under their own power. In cutscenes they are shown with the ability to fly.
In Zero Gravity, Dr. Eggman has established the Meteor Tech robotics corporation as a front for his activities in the high-technology region of Monopole. Described as "the leading security company" in the game's opening sequence, Meteor Tech produces SCR-HD and SCR-GP model 'bots in its MeteorTech Sparkworks, and controls them from Crimson Tower via the Mother Computer. It seems to have been Robotnik's plan to sell his (apparently harmless) robots to various other organizations around Monopole, saturating the economy with Meteor Tech models, and then later seize control of the region in one fell swoop by setting the machines to rampage.
Eggman's plan is derailed before the game begins, not by Sonic, but by beings long dead. Somewhat unwisely, Eggman used an ill-understood piece of ancient Babylonian technology - discovered in Crimson Crater - as the core of his Mother Computer. When an Ark of the Cosmos crashes as a meteorite outside Crimson Tower, the SCR robots go berserk, compelled by the malfunctioning mainframe to gather all 5 Arks and bring them to Babylon Garden.
SCR-GP models form the bulk of the army that pursues Sonic and hunts the Arks of the Cosmos, appearing in many levels as opponent racers that the characters must outpace. After Crimson Tower and Master Core: ABIS are destroyed, removing both Eggman and Babylonian influences on the robots, they presumably stop being a threat to anyone.
Unlocking: SCR-GP becomes playable in Free Race as soon as the Babylon Story has been completed.
SCR-GP is the only character in the game to have 6 stars in one of his basic stats (Power).
| Trivia sections are bad
Try and incorporate this information into the main article. See the manual of style to find out why.
- The SCR models' white-painted, humanoid appearance seems to derive from the Egg Gunner design from Sonic '06.
- It can often be difficult to distinguish between SCR-GP and SCR-HD. During gameplay, HD's icon is gold while GP's is silver, and GP's character model is tinted brown. Their "eyes" are also different; GP's are rectangular with a red light while HD's form a blue chevron.
