Beans are small beings from Beanville in Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. Dr. Robotnik kidnapped all the beans and put them into a machine called the Mean Bean-Steaming Machine, which would roboticize them and make them his robotic slaves.
The player saves the beans by combining four or more beans of the same color linked together.
Beans come in the following colors:
- Purple (Pink in the Game Gear version)
- Blue (Only in the Game Gear Version)
