Bubbler (バブラー Baburā?) was a scrapped Badnik in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
It is dropped onto the ground by Bubbler's Mother and would then proceed to bubble up before exploding.
- While the Bubbler was not featured as a normal enemy in the 2013 mobile re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it does appear as a new object that can be inserted in Chemical Plant Zone while Debug Mode is activated.
- The Bubbler's eyes were edited into the sprite of Knuckles the Echidna glaring from the bushes in the extended good ending of the 2013 re-release.
