The Asteron is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a starfish-based Badnik variant that appeared during Operation: Clean Sweep.
A group of Asterons were guarding the Metropolis Zone when Sonic tried to get past of them during his mission to get to the core of Eggman's base. Sonic used a meter-wide screw to make progress on his journey and also squash the Asterons to the ceiling.
