The Fire-Breathing Statue (火を吹く石像 Hiwofuku sekizō?) is a level obstacle from both 16-bit and 8-bit versions of original Sonic the Hedgehog, where it can be found at Labyrinth Zone. These statues are fixed to the walls, and repeatedly blow small fireballs in the direction in front of them, as it functions similarly like Fireball Cannon at Marble Zone. Unlike badniks, these statues can't be destroyed, and touching the statue itself does no harm to Sonic.
