Gapsule (ガプセル Gapuseru?) is a sub-boss in Flying Battery Zone from the game Sonic & Knuckles, as well as its locked-on form, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. The boss is modeled after a Capsule.

Description

Battle

To defeat the boss, the player must stand on the button long enough to make the Gapsule to try crush them with one of his spike-ball arms. If the player jumps out of the way quickly enough, Gapsule will hit itself instead, dealing a hit in damage. After dealing itself six blows, the boss explodes, and the player proceeds to Act 2.

Sonic Jam

This was the final boss of the Sonic & Knuckles game in the Sonic Jam version for the Game.com. Like all other bosses, it has become much slower and less difficult to defeat.

Trivia

  • Interestingly, There exists unused sprites for a boss enemy known as Janken Capsule in Studiopolis Zone's files.[1] The boss has a very strong resemblance in design to the Gapsule and would have utilized a Rock-Paper-Scissors gimmick for its fight, implying a possible callback to Alex Kidd as well.
