Bubbler (バブラー) was set to appear in Chemical Plant Zone in the game Sonic the Hedgehog 2; however, it was scrapped like its "parent."
It is dropped onto the ground by Bubbler's Mother and would then proceed to bubble up before exploding.
- While it did not return as a normal enemy in the Christian Whitehead-produced 2013 mobile re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it does appear as a new Chemical Plant object in Debug Mode.
- Its eyes were edited into the sprite of Knuckles the Echidna glaring from the bushes in the extended good ending of the 2013 re-release.
