Almost always followed by a punch, this was once thought to be an act of aggression, but now regarded as an echidna mating call. As echidnas are known to be combative, it was assumed that this behavior also extended to their mating rituals — which would explain how the race eventually died out, as echidnas ironically beat each other to death while trying to reproduce.

Because of this theory, the phrase "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" can either be followed by punching or mating.

This joke originally began when a former player commented that a robot in a scan from the Archie Sonic book looked like it should have been screaming "EEEEEE" instead of speaking just before punching Sonic. This scan was taken and edited appropriately.
