For the Badnik that appears in Hydrocity Zone, see Blastoid (Hydrocity Zone).

Blastoid[1] (スパークル[2] Supākuru?, lit. "Sparkle") is an enemy that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It is a grenade-shaped Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.



The Blastoids are very small Badniks resembling grenades. They have a silver body with a pair of wide eyes, footstools, and an antenna that creates a spark line between it and the Blastoids' upper point.


The Blastoids are only found in Carnival Night Zone, where they usually appear in groups within open corridors. When the player gets close to them, the Blastoids will start warping back and forth between the floor and ceiling. While doing this, they fire a pair of sparkling projectiles along a stream of electricity in a forty-five degree angle.

The player has to carefully when crossing the Blastoids. Attack right after they have finished their attack pattern while avoiding their shock wave. With the good timing, the player can defeat a Blastoid with the Spin Jump or Spin Attack.
