Based on real-life domestic pigs, Butons resemble closely Ball Hogs in terms of design. They have a grey color scheme with dark orange snouts and bellies and black eyes.
Butons in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit) are only found in Gimmick Mt. Zone. Unlike the Ball Hogs, Butons do not throw explosive bombs, but instead hops around. Once this Badnik notices Sonic, it starts bouncing towards him. After three hops, Butons hop in one place for while before repeating their attack pattern. If the player get far enough away though, they will hop in the opposite direction.
