Gator is a scrapped Badnik from .
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Gator resembles a green (though sometimes it may be colored blue) alligator/crocodile-like robot on wheels. It rolls over and chomps the player during the stage. It was in
Emerald Hill and Hidden Palace's Debug lists, although it is most known for its appearance in the lost Dust Hill Zone.
This badnik is not listed in any instruction manual. However, it is referred to as "gator" in the game's source code.
This Badnik is called Alligator in early design documents. [
