Badniks are the many robotic grunts of Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik that often resembled animals with built-in weapons. When destroyed by Sonic, they usually released a small animal, such as a Flicky that would hop off the screen (although, in some games, they would release a Ring or a flower seed in place of the animal). Several theories arose as to why these animals had been trapped within in the first place, but it is shown in Sonic 3D Blast that at least Flickies have some sort of connection to the Chaos Emeralds, that Eggman is known to be after. In the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Doctor Eggman ), whose real name is Doctor Ivo Robotnik ) prior to Sonic Adventure 2 (see naming variations), and Doctor Julian Kintobor (Anti-Robotnik) in the Archie comic series, is a video game character and main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series. ...

Sonic the Comic came up with a very likely theory; that these Badniks had to be powered by living beings - a so-called "Organic Battery". Thus, Eggman captured these animals and wired them into his robots to charge them, and so the type of animal released rarely had any connection to the type of animal that the badnik had been. "SatAM" and the Archie Sonic comics continuities took the concept a step further where the animals were actually turned into robots (or roboticized) by a special machine known as "the Roboticizer" and that the only way they could be freed is to be "de-roboticized", having the said process reversed. Sonic the Comic, known to its many readers as STC, was a UK childrens comic published fortnightly by Fleetway Editions (the merged companies Fleetway and London Editions, which progressively became integrated with its parent company Egmont until it became known as Egmont Magazines) between 1993 and 2002. ...

Certain designs of Badniks reappeared in many of the games, though some appeared only once. Some of the more notable types include the "Buzz Bomber" badniks, which resemble wasps and fire energy blasts from their stingers, and variations of it have appeared in many of the 2D games. "Crabmeat" badniks, which looked like scuttling crabs and fired energy blasts from guns within their claws, and the caterpillar-based "Caterkiller" was also two of the more popular Badniks, and were redesigned several times for several different games.

Badniks in Sonic the Comic

In the UK (Edgmont Fleetway) Sonic the Comic, all early badniks were powered by Organic Batteries, the name given to the helpless Mobian trapped inside. Unlike several other media, the badniks in Sonic the Comic were directly based upon the robotic drones that appeared in the games. Sonic the Comic, known to its many readers as STC, was a UK childrens comic published fortnightly by Fleetway Editions (the merged companies Fleetway and London Editions, which progressively became integrated with its parent company Egmont until it became known as Egmont Magazines) between 1993 and 2002. ...

Prime Badniks soon appeared, which could operate without the need of an organic energy source. The first such badnik was the spider-like Arachbot. Throughout the course of the comic's production, most badniks continued to use organic batteries despite new advances (possibly because Dr. Robotnik was hesitant to discard still potentially-useful equipment).

Dr. Robotnik originally used mobile factories, which were basically large badniks that ingested a Mobian and then encased it in a metallic shell, releasing it as a badnik. However, in later issues Robotnik used huge processing plants to churn out badniks in large numbers.

Several important types of badnik were made later in the story. After Robotnik successfully conquered Mobius, "Trooper Badniks" (large and powerful humanoid robots) became commonplace. Sonic initially had trouble defeating the powerful troopers until he learned that they were not powered by Organic Batteries and that he therefore did not need to hold back his strength when attacking. Troopers, with their menacing appearance, were one of the most frequently-seen antagonists in the comic until the overthrow of Robotnik in issue #100. The most notable trooper badnik was Commander Brutus, who was elavated above the ranks and programmed with Robotnik's own brainwaves, and later attempted a coup against the dictator. Mobius is the planet that the Sonic the Hedgehog characters are from in the comic book series made by Archie Comics (United States) and Fleetway (UK) , and in all three American cartoons, including the light-hearted Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, the ABC cartoon Sonic the Hedgehog (known as SatAM... Commander Brutus was a character in the UKs Sonic the Comic. ...

Another important type of badnik was the Metallix series (see Metal Sonic), which were based on Sonic's own appearance and abilities. Like Commander Brutus, they rebelled against Robotnik, forming their own "society". Metal Sonic ) is the robotic counterpart of video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. ...

Also worth mention was the "Cybernik"-style badniks, made of the indestructible metal known as Megatal (comparable to adamantium). Despite their heightened status, Cybernik badniks were built using Organic Batteries. Only two were ever known to be constructed. The first, a squirrel-badnik dubbed Shortfuse, incorporated a reluctant squirrel named Shorty. Shorty was able to take control of his badnik casing, rebelling against Robotnik and joining the Freedom Fighters. The second Cybernik was a rat named Vermin (who willingly volunteered for the process), designed largely to combat Shortfuse via use of an injectable computer virus in his tail. Both were destroyed. Vermin was tricked by Shortfuse into downloading a computer programme that caused his suit to open up, and once the rat leaped out of the armour, Shortfuse, reasoning that it would not be indestructible from the inside, blew it up. Shortfuse was later caught up in an explosion caused by a machine created by the alien Plax race; the explosion destroyed the armour but left Shorty himself unharmed. Adamantium is a fictional chemical substance and metal alloy in the Marvel comics universe. ...

All the Badniks on Mobius were immobilised in issue #100 along with all the electrical systems on Mobius when Super Sonic burst out of the Black Asteroid in Mobius' orbit (transported from the Special Zone by the Omni Viewer), causing an Electro-magnetic pulse which covered the planet. Robotnik created a new batch from his new base on Flickies' Island and launched multiple attacks, but never regained control over the planet again. The Flicky-powered Badniks were much more powerful than normal ones, Sonic having considerable difficulty dispatching only a single one, and only just managing to do so with all his strength. These Badniks were usually a grey, dark colour and looked much more demonic and menacing than the colourful, cartoony Badniks that usually populated Robotnik's army. Some didn't bear any resemblance to normal Badniks at all. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Sonic the Hedgehog (character). ... Sonic 3s Special Stage The Special Zone (also called Special Stage) was an important part of the Sega Genesis/Megadrive Sonic the Hedgehog games. ... Team Chaotix, as seen in Sonic Heroes. ...

A one off Sonic story considered a fan favourite was Smokey and the Badnik in which a Roller badnik (which features in Sonic 1's, Spring Yard Zone) befriends a young Mobian called Smokey, and protects him from a Trooper attack. Sonic spares the Robot once he sees it is harmless and the two walk off into the sunset. Sonic the Hedgehog is the platform game that launched the career of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Team. ...

The Sonic CD Badniks were only seen once, when Robotnik decided to relocate the Palmtree Panic Zone Badniks to the Green Hill Zone. The plan went south when they decided they weren't going to share a Zone with inferior outdated Badniks, and obliterated the locals in a violent frenzy. B.A.R.F. had to bring them under control using upgraded superhuman versions of the Green Hill Badniks, known as the Seven, and forced them back to Palmtree Panic.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Japanese name English name Location Description
Stinger Buzzer Emerald Hill Buzzers mooch around in the Emerald Hill Zone. They move around slowly left to right hovering in the sky, and occasionally shoot a small fireball at your general direction.
Aiai Coconuts Emerald Hill Coconuts hangs around on the trees of Emerald Hill, and then lob coconuts at you when you aren't looking. This Badnik was also a recurring character on Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and in the US Sonic comic book.
Gabuccho Masher Emerald Hill Mashers act in exactly the same way as their older brothers Choppers. Over bridges and open stretches of water, they jump up from nowhere and try to get a hedgehog or fox appetiser.
Grabber Grabber Chemical Plant Grabbers that lie quietly in wait on the ceilings of the Chemical Plant Zone, waiting for anyone to wander past and act as the proverbial fly to the spider. When you run underneath them, they scoot down and grab you. From there, they hold on while flashing red. Very soon, they blow up, with you attached to them! It should be noted that it doesn't release an animal after self-destructing.
Randaa Spiny Chemical Plant The squat Spiny will stick to the walls, ceiling or the floor, and simply fire energy balls at you when you speed past.
Handrill Grounder Aquatic Ruin Grounders tend to stay behind the brick walls in the Aquatic Ruin, and pop out when you least suspect it. All they do is attempt to run into you, like the elder Burrowbot. You can tell where a Grounder might be hiding by there being a bunch of different colored bricks in the wall. A green-colored version of this Badnik was also a regular on Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Punpun Whisp Aquatic Ruin Whisp always travel in numbers. Generally coming in threes, all they do is fly around and try to hit you.
Piranha Chop Chop Aquatic Ruin These little fishies swim aimlessly about under the water like their older brothers Jaws. However, they swim much faster when they see their food drop by (that is, you). Alter their eating habits by jumping into them.
Gaadon Crawl Casino Night The only Badnik in the Casino Night Zone, the crab-like Crawl wanders around slowly waiting for you to turn up. When you jump at them they bounce you off with their bumpers. They do the same when you try to roll into them, so the only way to get to the chewy Crawl centre is to attack them from behind (in the most honorable way, of course).
Saura Rexon Hill Top Rexon have long spindly necks and large, round bodies and are otherwise completely concealed in the lava. The only threat a Rexon poses are the small energy balls it intermittently shoots at you, otherwise they tend to be quite handy makeshift platforms.
Shinshin Spiker Hill Top These guys walk around on the ceiling with snazzy cone-shaped hats, but this ain't no fashion statement - as soon as you walk out under them they shed their spiky headwear and fire it downwards towards you! When it's gone, they're vulnerable.
Gola Ghora (sol) Hill Top These guys are the fiery big brother of the Orbinaut - The little orb with eyes is more dangerous than it looks, as it has four red-hot fireballs that it isn't afraid to throw at you. Avoid becoming a grilled hedgehog by dodging their slow pitched throws, and attack them when they're defenseless.
Flasher Flasher Mystic Cave Flashers mooch about waiting for you, ready to strike up an electric charge that'll hurt you even if you jump at them. Attack when they aren't glowing.
Zakiin Crawlton Mystic Cave Looking like a Caterkiller's shy cousin, these spiky centipede-like bugs hide in the rocks mostly concealed until they decide to suddenly shoot out and hit you, only to hide back from whence they came. Counter by giving them a good smack in the face.
Shiidora Aquis Oil Ocean These sea horse look-a-likes are remarkably irritating - they fly around pretty much anywhere (out of water, just in case you were wondering), and fire quick and accurate pellets at you. Hit them before they hit you.
Octa Octus Oil Ocean Octus sit around on the floor until you turn up, then they launch into the sky and fire an energy ball at you (like most octopuses).
Terustar Asteron Metropolis These starfish-type critters sit perfectly still until you draw close, then start flashing ominously. Rather than this being a rather lame attack, it's a precursor to it blowing up, shooting spikes in all directions! If you see one washed up at the beach, run!
Kanipunch Shellcracker Metropolis To say a Shellcracker is unable to turn around would be cruel - they prefer directionally challenged. Shellcrackers sport a hefty telescopic arm on their left side which can certainly give you a few bruises, but on their right they are completely defenceless.
Kamakiller Slicer Metropolis These mantis robots can't walk, but they can fire their pincers at you, and they're a very accurate shot, with their pincers often boomeranging around to home in on you. They also have the nasty habit of waiting on top of long climbs, and hit you just when you get to the top. Hit them when they've fired off their pincers. This Badnik is considered among fans, the most irritating enemy in the series.
Dousun Turtloids Sky Chase Turtloids consist of two turtle robots, one pilot, and one larger 'bot that fires energy pellets at you. Take out the pilot and you have yourself a handy platform in the sky.
Barukiin Balkiry Sky Chase Balkiry are fast moving jet-shaped bird robots. After the passing Robotnik's massive ship, these badniks move faster.
Potosu Nebula Sky Chase These are best described as 'weird floaty spike bomb dropping robots', and can't be described as much else. Don't get beneath one, our you may have a few more spikes in your head than you did before...
Kokekkou Clucker Wing Fortress Perhaps rather aptly, the egg firing Cluckers are the last robots you'll see before the Death Egg. The vulnerable head will pop up from small turrets on the ground. They can't turn around (are directionally challenged) in these turrets, so just avoid their front ends and you won't have egg on your face. Possibly the inspiration for Scratch in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Dinobot Dinobot Hidden Palace Missing from the Final Game, this allosaur walks around trying to get a meal out of Sonic and Tails. This and the following two Badniks can be seen in the Sonic 2 Beta game.
Batbot Batbot Hidden Palace Missing from the Final Game, Batbot swoops from the rooftops trying to cut Sonic and Tails.
Snailbot Snailbot Emerald Hill Missing from the final game and similar to the Motobug from Sonic 1, Snailbot charges along the ground anonymously.

Sonic the Hedgehog CD

Note: The Badniks in Sonic CD have no English names and in fact, several of them have no names at all. Additionally, each Badnik has a "new" form and a "damaged" form. Damaged Badniks have poorer performance and look broken and rusty. In addition, the Badniks in Sonic CD release flowers marking the spot where they were defeated as opposed to animals when destroyed. The flowers change depending on which zone the Badnik was in.

Sonic Rivals

English Name Zone(s) Description
Flapper All Zones Robot specially designed to flap with 74% effinciency.
Egg Pawn All Zones Corporate drones. They're everywhere, wasting their miserable lives, just like goombas and waddle dees and every other creature to occupy a world for no other reason then to simply take up space. On second thought, I actually kind of liked waddle dees. They're really nice and have never done anything to me except accidentally run into me, but in the end that really just caused more trouble for him than me (waddle dees are very prone to exploding, even from the slightest touch. Somehow, they are able to massively reproduce despite this tragic flaw.) Man, I don't think really anybody in that game meant too much harm except for kirby, that fat little ball of lard. He ate everything he could find, sometimes just to appease his urge to destroy. He's left entire planets unpopulated, yet he keeps hopping from planet to planet into the infinite reaches of space. The only thing comparable to himself is The Thing from the movie of the same name. Man, you really have to question the motives of all video game characters. When the world itself is considered completely evil, and your only soloution is to eradicate all life in sight, isn't that kind of... not the definintion of good in almost any world view?
Venoom Forest Falls A spider-like robot that attacks with its legs. His mother brought him up beleiving he was special, but upon short glance at this massive list, it can be easily inferred that he simply really isn't. Kind of like a book I had as a kid named Beauregard: The Number One Bunny where a bunny who just caused the suffering of others was effectively silenced by telling him that he was number one at just being himself. This overwhelmingly positive support prevented him from doing absoloutely nothing, which in turn made the world a little better of a place. Still, I was a little unsettled at the fact that he was insistently called "number one." I mean, they can just bullshit him and say that he's special, but they can't legitamately say he's number one at anything because his outstanding talents were never mentioned in the book, and he failed at everything that he tried. I mean, I guess he could be the best at being the worst, but being the worst isn't a competition so he can't really be the best at it.
Vultur Colosseum Highway A vulture-like robot that uses its talons to attack players by swooping in on them. Notable features includes a striking lack of the letter "e."
MonoClown Sky Park Total tool. Once his car was running low on gas, and he stops at a gas station and asks me to spot him some cash. So I do, and he walks inside and buys a pack of cigs, and the car runs out of gas and he's like "whoah, shit man." Also, his car is trashy as hell and smells like death.
Yeta Crystal Mountain Subhuman lump of plad that is somehow impossibly good at launching itself down clifflike terrain while you sled on your frozen leaf thing and have to take that shortcut because she's so fast and you always fall off the cliff thanks to faulty poorly designed minigame programming. Eventually, it's not about winning. It's about slowing down, waiting for her to get to the right place so you can pull out the blade and watch her spiral out of control, screaming in agony. Makes you hate fun.
Metal Hound Death Yard Dogs with bees in their mouths so when they bark they shoot bees at you.
Drill Worm Meteor Base A worm that is a drill. Attacks you by drilling into you, usually in a worm-like fashion.

They are physically intimidating with black colouring and armed with machine guns, and the design of them is reminiscent of the SWATbots from SatAM or the GUN Hunters from Sonic Adventure 2.

  • Shredder - Appearing in the episode Hooked on Sonics, this robot was designed to cut down trees and drain the life force energy from them in an effort to destroy the Great Forest, theoretically revealing the location of Knothole Village. It was equipped with two arms, each bearing a large buzz saw, four crab-like legs, and a blocky head with two cameras mounted on telescoping robotic tentacles. It was promptly dispatched by Sonic, but was rebuilt and used a captured power ring to run it, though it was still destroyed once more by Sonic.
  • Stealthbot - A flying attack robot armed with guided missiles and laser weapons and equipped with heat-seeking radar, these machines serve alongside the Hover Units as Robotnik's air force, often as elite strike units. Despite the name, they don't seem to have any unique features that would make them hard to detect.
  • Techbot - Robots designed to conduct repairs on Robotnik's machines when damaged, as well as other menial tasks such as operating roboticizers. Hollowed-out Techbots were sometimes used by the Freedom Fighters during covert ops in Robotropolis, as in the episodes No Brainer and Spyhog.
  • Ratbot - large rat-like tunneling robots found in the subteranean passageways under Robotropolis, abandoned and left to their own devices. There was also a large 'mutant' one. Both versions can deliver an electric shock through their tails, using them as whip-like weapons. They appeared in the episode Warp Sonic, wherein they threatened a secret underground colony of Mobians.
  • Yellow Runner - a cheetah-like robot that runs at exceptionally high speed (somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 MPH, seeing as it was clocked at 500 MPH when tested at half speed). Was used in a race held by Robotnik in an attempt to lure Sonic into a series of traps, including the robot itself deploying a mechanical arm and attempting to throw Sonic so high that he would be killed upon landing, which fails when Sonic uses a flagpole to break his fall. It appeared in the episode Sonic Racer.
  • Securitybot - An armed guard robot used to protect Robotnik's factories and other facilities in Robotropolis in lieu of or in addition to SWATbots, these robots look like Hover Units with arms and legs which are fitted with wheels, and can fold up their limbs to travel like cars for greater speed (though are incapable of flight without external augmentation, as in the episode Sonic Boom). they are generally armed with a laser cannon fitted on the underside of the body and are usually a pale orange color.
  • Surveillance Orb - A small flying camera probe about the size of a football, these robots scour Robotropolis, searching for any signs of intruders and can also be used to conduct searches or surveillance in areas where a larger robot such as a SWATbot would be too cumbersome or otherwise ineffective. They are typically brown with a yellow & black camera lens on the front surrounded by four grey 'petals' that close up over the front of the device when inactive, the lense sometimes flashing red when an intruder is spotted, immediately sending a live video feed back to Robotnik. They were first seen in the episode Sonic Racer and become a staple of almost every episode thereafter, appearing almost as frequently as SWATbots. They're usually quite weak, seeming to lack any armor protection; a strong hit from an average Mobian usually being enough to destroy or at least significantly damage them. In the episode Sonic Boom, Sonic uses a captured Surveillance Orb to send a video feed of sabotaged Stealthbots to Robotnik, showing them malfunctioning and exploding before saying "That one's for Cat", referring to a Freedom Fighter Robotnik had captured earlier in the episode.

    Badnik - Sonic Retro (382 words)
    A Badnik is a term for an enemy robot in the early North American and European versions of the Sonic the Hedgehog video games.
    In the UK (Edgmont Fleetway) Sonic the Comic, all early Badniks were powered by Organic Batteries, the name given to the helpless Mobian trapped inside, however stronger self-sufficient badniks known as Prime Badniks which could operate without the need of such batteries soon appeared.
    The first such was the Arachbot a spider like badnik which captured Tails in an early episode and was resistant to sonic's attacks until he torched it using the weapon from another badnik he had destroyed.
