The Cop Speeder[1] (コップスピーダー Koppu Supīdā?), also known as the E-10 Cop Speeder[citation needed], is a reoccurring enemy in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced E-Series robot created by Dr. Eggman that is designed as a Kiki driving a hovering police car.


The Cop Speeder is evidently based on a police car. It consists of a rounded white floating transporter-like car piloted by a Kiki. In Sonic Adventure, its face is blocked by a black cover. However, the face of the Badnik is opened in Sonic Generations.

Games appearances

Sonic Adventure

The Cop Speeders in Sonic Adventure.

The Cop Speeders' first appearance was in Sonic Adventure and later its remake, Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. In this game, they are only found in Sonic, Tails and Knuckles' version of Speed Highway. Here, they are either positioned on the edges of the areas where they remain in standby mode until the player approaches, or are just patrolling areas until the player arrives. Upon activating, their sirens start flashing and blaring.

Cop Speeders are rather difficult enemies. Once spotting the player, they start driving haphazardly around in arcs, which makes them hard to get a lock on. Meanwhile, they will try to hit the player from above. Sometimes, not even the Homing Attack can catch up with them.

Sonic Generations

The Cop Speeders in Sonic Generations.

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, Cop Speeders appear in Speed Highway Act 1 and 2. In gameplay, their movements are stabler than in Sonic Adventure and they are easier to take out. However, their still-random movements make it unwise to use the Boost against them.

In Speed Highway Act 1, Cop Speeders mostly appear by themselves. In Speed Highway Act 2 though, they tend to show up in never-ending groups. Additionally, a statue of a Cop Speeder will appear in the secret Statue Room if the player enters the right code.

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

In Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Cop Speeders reappear in the Speed Highway section during the Dream Roller Coaster Bobsleigh event. Here, they act as obstacles, exploding upon being hit and slowing down the sleigher in the process.

Sonic Runners

In Sonic Runners, a Cop Speeder makes a cameo appearance on the cheat menu icon.

Powers and abilities

The E-10 Cop Speeders are capable of midair levitation and can move at speeds nearing that of Sonic's.

In other media

Archie Comics

  • In Sonic Adventure, Cop Speeders do not have torsos as their head can be only seen floating above the police car's cockpit.
  • The Cop Speeder always uses its light when activated, even if it is in a daytime.
