Cluckoid[1] (ケッコー[2] Kekko?) is a recurring enemy in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, rooster-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman that can blow its targets away with a gust of wind.


Based on roosters, Cluckoids look like real-life weathercocks standing on top of a wind vane. They also possess white armor with with an orange wattle and comb each. Additionally, they have a pair of engines resembling wings.

In Sonic Lost World, the Cluckoids' design remained closely the same, except for a few minor details which include a red wattle and comb, and cyan eyes.

Game appearances

Sonic & Knuckles


In Sonic & Knuckles, Cluckoids are only found in Mushroom Hill Zone Act 2. When approached, they inhale deeply before releasing a gust of wind at the player. The wind itself does not damage the player, but it can push them away and into obstacles. If they are not creating gusts, the Cluckoids can be defeated with a Spin Jump.

Sonic Lost World

In the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World, the Cluckoids returned as enemies. During the game, the Cluckoids and the other badniks got hijacked by the Deadly Six. The Cluckoids themselves can be found in Tropical Coast Zone 2 and Frozen Factory Zone 2.

In Tropical Coast Zone 2, Cluckoids are placed on narrow routes or floating islands. After noticing the player, they will create gusts a wind in an attempt to blow Sonic away from themselves. The player can use the Homing Attack or the local giant rolling apples to defeat the Cluckoids easily. In Frozen Factory Zone 2, when Sonic is enveloped in a snowball, Clukoids will try to blow the player off the routes. Rolling into the Cluckoids defeats them easily though.

Powers and abilities

Cluckoids can inhale large of amounts of air and then expel it as a powerful gust of wind from their mouths to blow away opponents.
