The Doomsday Pods are escape pod-like machines and objects featured in the cartoon series Sonic SatAM and in the Archie Sonic comics.
The Doomsday Pods were nearly indestructible as they took a special lightning field or the "special" balloons Rotor created to destroy them. These pods destroy anything in their paths and were able to be created in mass numbers due to the effectiveness of Dr. Robotnik's Doomsday Project.
The Waste Pod was a machine created by Dr. Robotnik to wipe out the Wolf Pack. Though difficult to defeat, it was brought down by the combined efforts of the Wolf Pack with help from Sonic the Hedgehog, Sally Acorn and Antoine D'Coolette of the Knothole Freedom Fighters.
- The Waste Pod is adapted from the Doomsday Project featured in the Sonic the Hedgehog animated series. The plot used for the Waste Pod's one appearance was that of the episode "Cry of the Wolf".
