His battle is identical to Puffy's in NiGHTS into Dreams, where the player must grab and throw Eggman throughout Puffy's mansion until they reach the end of it, where there will be a shelf. By throwing Eggman under it, the support will break, causing him to get smashed between the wall and the tumbling shelf.
