Bata-Pyon bears a design inspired by a grasshopper, with its attack pattern reflecting it. It aimlessly bounces up and down in a designated area. This Badnik sports a green body, with a yellow "belly" from which an orange spring is placed in order for Bata-Pyon to hop around. When broken due to aging, Bata-Pyon gains crumpled antennae, a tired look in its eyes, and a loss of plating its midsection above its spring. The worn out Bata-Pyon also takes more time to recoil from a landing, with the same said for bouncing.
- This enemy is similar to Mantis from Marble Garden Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
- Bata-Pyon's attack pattern is similar in concept to Splats, an unused Badnik from Sonic the Hedgehog (1991).
- "Batta" is the Japanese word for "grasshopper", while "pyon-pyon" translates to English as "hopping".
