Their bodies look like Egg Pawns, but they have wings and turbines instead of arms and legs. They resemble airplanes and use jet engines to keep themselves afloat. After the Egg Pawns, these robots are the most recurring enemy in recent Sonic games.
In Sonic Heroes, Egg Flappers come in a variety of models, each with a different ability or weapon. The easiest way to destroy them is by using Thunder Shoot to knock them out of the sky, leaving them open to any attack. Although, if Thunder Shoot is leveled up to Level 3, then it may be enough to destroy a Flapper in one shot. There are many different kinds of Flappers that are equipped with different weapons and come in a variety of colors.Sonic Rush, which introduces a new type of Flapper that moves under water, they are enemies in Water Palace Night Carnival and Altitude Limit. They retained the same role in the DS version of Sonic Colors.
The Egg Flappers in Sonic Heroes are:
|Flapper||A generic Flapper that has no weapons or abilities, and is pretty much useless for anything other than recon. They are painted orange.|
|Cannon Flapper||A Flapper with a bazooka identical to the ones used by Egg Pawns. They are painted green.|
|Gun Flapper||A Flapper with a machine gun. They are painted light blue.|
|Bomb Flapper||A Flapper that flies about, periodically dropping bombs. They are painted magenta.|
|Laser Flapper||A Flapper that constantly shoots an electric laser straight down. They are painted neon green.|
|Needle Flapper||A Flapper that has spikes that pop out at regular intervals, making them harder to attack. They can still be damaged by a Thunder Shoot with the spikes deployed, but at the expense of the teammate being used in the attack. They are painted dark violet.|
|Search Flapper||A Flapper that has no weapons, but instead has a searchlight. If a character is caught in the light, the Flapper will make several Egg Pawns appear to fight them off. They are painted yellow.|
