The Float Type[1] (浮遊タイプ Fuyū taipu?, lit. "Floating Type") is an enemy that appears in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. It is a model of synthetic life-forms created by Professor Gerald Robotnik as a part of the Artificial Chaos project, a series of experimental cyborg weapons based on the ancient deity Chaos which roam the Space Colony ARK.

Appearance

The Float Types are generally floating orbs of water, with a grey/white mechanical head shaped like Chaos 0's towering on top, making them resemble the Artificial Chaos P-100s. This head has Project Shadow's symbol on its forehead, light green pupil-less eyes, turquoise outlines, and a brainstem on the bottom.

Overview

In Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Float Types are only found in the latter half of the games' storylines and the last story, but are some of the toughest foes encountered. They are found in the following Stages:

Character Stage
Normal mode Hard mode
Sonic Final Rush
Cannon's Core
Crazy Gadget
Final Rush
Cannon's Core
Tails Eternal Engine
Knuckles Meteor Herd
Cannon's Core
Shadow Final Chase
Dr. Eggman Cosmic Wall
Cannon's Core
Rouge Mad Space
Cannon's Core

In gameplay, the Float Types will either hover in a fixed point or follow a default trajectory through the air. Either way, their flight abilities make them much harder to hit. These Artificial Chaos attack by quickly reaching out with long and extremely accurate tentacles in a circular pattern to stab the player, so while some are quite slow at turning, their attack makes up for it. A tip to avoid being hit is to be behind them. Alternatively, these variants will target the player with eye laser shots.

The Float Types' water bodies are invincible to attack, but attacking their heads will destroy them after one hit. Once properly targeted, the Float Types are easily destroyed. When destroyed, they award the player with two hundred points and drop their power source: a Chaos Drive.

Powers and abilities

Float Types are capable of firing lasers from their eyes and can extend tentacle-like stretches of water from their bodies, much like Chaos 0 itself, which are sharp enough to pierce their foes. They are also capable of flight and levitation. Their liquid body structure likewise renders the majority of their bodies impervious to conventional harm.

Weakness

The Float Types' only weak spot on their otherwise invulnerable bodies are their solid heads. If its head gets damaged, the Float Type will be destroyed.
