The Amoeba Droid[note 1] is a character that appears in Sonic Mania. It is a robotic satellite in the Chemical Plant Zone that attacked Sonic and his crew when they came through the Zone.

Appearance

The Amoeba Droid is a metallic gray sphere with yellow and black hazard stripes on the upper half, a red Eggman Empire logo with a red "X" underneath it on the front, and a blue bottom. It also has three prominent prongs on it, each one with internal yellow and blue components.

History

When Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were about to enter the inner depths of the Chemical Plant Zone, the Amoeba Droid ambushed them and used the limitless local sources of Mega Mack against the trio. Despite that, it still got destroyed by the heroes.

Powers and abilities

The Amoeba Droid is able to levitate in midair and can control Mega Mack telekinetically, allowing it to mold this volatile substance into a number of things, like a liquid cocoon around itself for defense or projectiles to be thrown at opponents.

Weakness

While able to control Mega Mack, the Amoeba Droid cannot generate this substance itself. As such, it relies on external sources to draw Mega Mack from.

Battle

Amoeba Droid is the mini-boss of Chemical Plant Zone and the overall third boss of Sonic Mania. It is fought with Sonic, Tails or Knuckles at the end of Chemical Plant Zone Act 1.

Boss guide

The boss fights begins when the Amoeba Droid fall into the arena from the sky. As its first move, the Amoeba Droid will drop down into the blue Mega Mack below the arena and collect it, creating an impenetrable barrier that not only protects it, but will also damage the playable characters if they touch it. It will then bounce along the ground three times while chasing the characters. Afterwards, it will hover in the air and mold its gathered Mega Mack into small orbs of chemicals orbiting it around the middle that cause damage upon touch; while the Amoeba Droid can now be safely attacked, the orbs' orbital inclination steadily changes, meaning there is a chance the player can still get hit when attacking this boss. Afterward, it will eventually release all its chemicals, which will damage the playable characters should they hit them. It will then sit still midair for a split second before diving down into the Mega Mack below again, where it gather up the blue chemicals and repeat the cycle.

After six hits, the Amoeba Droid will be defeated. The player can then touch the Goal Plate that falls down from the sky and finish the Act.
