Anton is based on a terrestrial ant and seems to be an upgrade of the Moto Bug, which lacks any weaponry while the Moto Bug was armed with razor arms. Anton has blue robotic armor and they are capable to move around with single yellow wheel and two small engines at the bottom of the Badnik.
Sonic the Hedgehog CD
In Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Anton simply rolls back and forth along the ground at Palmtree Panic, never leaving the platform upon which it moves. It can be easily avoided and destroyed. When they are seen broken down due to age in the Bad Future or sometimes in the present, these Badniks move considerably slower and have a depressed look on their faces. They can be easily defeated by using Spin Jump or Spin Attack. Like other Badniks in the game, Anton is powered with Little Planet's flower.
Sonic Lost World
In the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World, Antons appear in single-file groups of three in Desert Ruins Zone 3. In this game, Antons are powered by Animals instead of flowers. If the player targets an Anton using the Homing Attack, it will grab Sonic and keep him on its back as it activates its self-destruct. The player has to use a Flying Kick to defeat an Anton properly and release its Animal.
In the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions, the Antons are a part of Dr. Robotnik's Badnik army, although they only made a few appearances during the comic's run. Depending on the artist, the Antons' design would differ between their appearances.
