The Buzzbomber is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a hornet-based Badnik variant created by Dr. Eggman.


Early uses

Created by Dr. Eggman as his minions, the Buzzbombers were used early on during the doctor's takeover of Mobotropolis to attack the fleeing citizens and later harass the inhabitants of Knothole Village.[1][2]


Genesis Buzzbomber

A Buzzbomber being reprogrammed by Boomer, from Sonic the Hedgehog #226.

The Buzzbombers reappeared in Marble Zone during the time world was reshaped by the first Genesis Wave. It was first seen being reprogrammed and repaired by Boomer after Sonic destroyed a bunch of Badniks. In order for it to work, it needed a Mobini inside of it, so Sally asked a nearby Flicky, and it agreed to help. Sonic and the Buzzbomber then started destroying other Badniks, including more Buzzbombers and a Caterkiller, but Sally, Boomer, and Antoine got left behind and stranded on a small piece of land sinking in lava. Sonic and the Buzzbomber went back to rescue them, and Sonic carried Sally while both Antoine and Boomer held onto the Buzzbomer. After saving them, Dr. Eggman introduced himself to them, and a fight ensued between him and Sonic. Before Dr. Eggman could hit Sonic, Buzzbomber attacked Dr. Eggman, who, in turn, destroyed the Badnik, but Sally called the Flicky very brave followed by Sonic telling her to tell the Flicky that he owed it one.[3]

Shattered World Crisis

Note: From the reader's point of view, this picks up from where the Buzzbombers' original timeline ended.

Over time, a number of scrapped Buzzbombers were left behind in a deserted Eggman junkyard which Zavok, Zeena and Zor reanimated with their magnetic powers and used to defeat Sonic the Hedgehog during their visit there.[4] These events were later prevented from ever happening thanks to a time traveling Xander Payne.[5]
