Sweeper (スイープ Suīpu?, lit. "Sweep"),[1] also known as the E-03 Sweeper,[citation needed] is a recurring enemy in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced E-Series robot created by Dr. Eggman that is designed to glide along water surfaces.


Physically, Sweepers resemble water striders. These robots have elongated, mechanical legs connected between their only head and torso. They also have a pair of eyes, a small gray needle nose and a red-glowing siren on their head.

First appearing in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, Sweepers appear only in Sonic's version of Emerald Coast and Twinkle Park.

The player can easily defeat them using the Spin Jump or Homing Attack.
