The Bata-Pyon (バタピョン?)[1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog CD. It is a grasshopper-type Badnik created by Doctor Eggman.


Bata-Pyon bears a design inspired by a grasshopper, with its attack pattern reflecting it. The Badnik sports a green body, with a yellow antennae and "belly" from which an red/orange Spring is placed in order for Bata-Pyon to hop around.

The Bata-Pyons appear in Wacky Workbench. It aimlessly bounces up and down in a designated area. Depending on the timeline of the Round, the Badnik appears broken due to aging in the Bad Future. These worn-down Bata-Pyons have crumpled antennae, a tired look in their eyes, and have lost the plating on their back's midsection. The worn out Bata-Pyon also takes more time to recoil from a landing and when bouncing.

By using the Spin Jump or Spin Attack, the Bata-Pyons can be easily defeated. Like every Badnik in the game, the Bata-Pyons are powered by Little Planet flower seeds which will pop out of them when they are defeated.
