Chainspike ( is a クロウ Kurō , lit. "Crow") ? badnik created by Doctor Robotnik. It appears only at the Death Egg Zone in (and Sonic & Knuckles ).
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
Chainspike has a round, cyan-colored body which has four spiky spears at its top, bottom and side sections. Chainspike also has a glowing eye in the middle of its black crossline.
Chainspike hovers inside the
Death Egg, guarding the space station and zipping around at high speeds. They pause briefly as their eyes start to glow and try to stab outwards with one of their four spear weapons, and then zoom away again. The safest way to hit it without getting hurt is to use the Insta-shield as Sonic, although it is also possible to destroy one by hitting one of its "corners" with a well-timed jump.
