The Buton (ブートン Būton?)[1] is an enemy that appears in the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. They are pig-based Badnik models created by Dr. Eggman.

Appearance

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.

Overview

Buton Badnik

Sonic facing off the Buton at Gimmick Mt. Zone.

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.

The player can easily defeat Butons by hitting them with the Spin Jump or Spin Attack. Like many other Badniks in the game, Butons do not contain any Animals.

Trivia

  • "Buton" is close to the word "Buu" (ブウ ?) that is Japanese meaning for oink sounds of pigs.
