Moto Bug, the very first badnik ever seen in the Sonic series

A Badnik is a term for an enemy robot in the early North American and European localizations of the Sonic the Hedgehog video games.

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 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 known that Flickies have some sort of connection to the Chaos Emeralds. Sonic the Comic posited that, much like The Matrix, these badniks had to be powered by living beings - a so-called "Organic Battery". Thus, Robotnik captured these animals and wired them into his robots to charge them, though the type of animal released rarely had any connection to the type of animal that the badnik had been. SatAM and Archie 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 or to have the said process reversed.

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 resembled wasps and fired energy blasts from their stings, and "Crabmeat" badniks, which looked like scuttling crabs and fired energy blasts from guns within their claws. Others include the "Grabber" spider badniks, which wrapped their legs around a target in an unbreakable grip then self-detonated, and the "Spinie" badniks, which clung to surfaces and spewed noxious chemicals from a flap on their upper surface. Caterkiller apperantly is the most popular,as it spawned 5 creations based on it. The badnik term fell out of use after Sonic Adventure was released. The E-Series and Eggpawn models became more popular versions of Eggman's soldiers. (see E-Series).

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.

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.

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".

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 injectible 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.

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.

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.

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.

List of Badniks

Note that the enemies in Sonic 3D Blast and the Sonic Advance series may or may not be badniks. The 3D Blast enemies are sometimes just called Robots, instead of Badniks, and the Sonic Advance enemies may be part of the E-Series.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Japanese English Zones Description

Japanese name English name Location Description Stinger Buzzer Emerald Hill Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone These little fishies swim aimlessly about under the water like their older brothers Jaws. However, they faster much faster when they see their food drop by (that is, you). Alter their eating habits by jumping into them. Gaadon Crawl Casino Night Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone Looking like a Caterkiller's shy cousin, these spiky 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone 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 Zone These mantis robots are a firm competitor for the Most Annoying Enemy Ever award... they can't walk, but they can fire their pincers at you, and they're a very accurate shot. 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. Dousun Turtloids Sky Chase Zone 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 (But what are turtles doing there in the first place?). Barukiin Balkiry Sky Chase Zone Balkiry are fast moving jet-shaped bird robots. After the passing Robotnik's massive ship, these badniks move faster. Potosu Nebula Sky Chase Zone 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 Zone 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. Probably the inspiration for Scratch in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Dinobot Dinobot Hidden Palace Zone Missing from the Final Game, Dinobot 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 Zone Missing from the Final Game, Batbot swoops from the rooftops trying to cut Sonic and Tails. Snailbot Snailbot Emerald Hill Zone Missing from the final game and similar to the Rhinobot from Sonic 3, Snailbot charges along the ground anonymously.
