Breakaway Bumpers, also called Bumpers or spheres are a variant of bumpers that appear in Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble. Unlike normal bumpers, these obscure variants are easily breakable and disappear after bouncing into it while giving points or nothing. These bumpers bear a resemblance to frog's eggs, which apparently have another more solid orb inside the weaker one.
Sonic the Hedgehog CD
In Sonic the Hedgehog CD, these bumpers can only be found at second and third zones of every timeline in Collision Chaos. These bumpers can be found at large ravines where there are dozens of breakable bumpers, as the player has to clear the way for proceeding in the zone. As the player bounces one of breakaway bumpers, it earns a hundred points and then disappears completely. These breakable bumpers also appear at third zone's boss duel at pinball table, floating individually.
In present timeline these bumpers more red coloring while having red liquid orb inside the weaker ball. In the past, breakaway bumpers are more light colored balls, which has green angular rocks inside the ball. In the good future, orbs are cyan colored with green and yellow colored angular rocks, while the bad future features dark balls with dark blue and green colored spheres inside it.
Sonic Triple Trouble
Breakaway Bumpers made another appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble, where these objects are seen this time only at Meta Junglira Zone. These bumpers are floating above wider areas, while the orbs are green coloring with purple balls inside them. However, these breakaway bumpers don't give points while the player gets bounced to them.
