Levitation Fireball manipulation
Gohla ( ゴーラ Gōra ) ?  is a recurring enemy in the  . It is a mass-produced Sonic the Hedgehog series Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman and a variant of Orbinaut. Unlike their predecessors which utilize spiked balls, the Gohlas uses fireballs for weapons and defense.
Originally, Gohlas were simple floating red orbs with two black eyes for a face and a varying number of fireballs obiting them. They also appear to have a small hatch beneath their body. In
, Gohlas retained this design, along with the inclusion of tired-looking, cyan eyes.
Sonic Lost World
and Sonic Adventure , the Gohlas had more details added to their design, receiving a grey metal plate on their bottom and six spikes on their rear. Their fireballs were also turned into metal spheres which were set ablaze. In Sonic Adventure 2 , Gohlas look much like they did in Sonic Advance 2 Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2, except they also got a grey metal plate on their top. Their fireballs were also redesigned as spherical orange robot drones with eyes, all of which were set ablaze.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Gohlas made their first appearance in
, where the individual Gohla is referred to as " Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Sol"  (. In this game, they are encountered in the overworld and cavers of ゴーラ Gōra ) ? Hill Top Zone. Due to their fireballs acting as a shield, the player will have a hard time attacking the Gohlas without getting hurt. Similar to Unidasus from the original , the Gohlas only move in one direction and when they see the player, they will launch their slow-moving fireballs one by one from their back bottom in the direction they are facing. The player is recommended to avoid the fireballs until all of them are released. The Gohla will then be left without a defense and the player can destroy it with a Sonic the Hedgehog Spin Jump.
Apparently, flashing Gohlas without fireballs appear on the other side of
seesaws in Hill Top Zone, which the player has to use in conjunction with the seesaw to utilize said gimmick.
, Gohlas are featured in Sonic Blast Red Volcano Zone. While their movement patters are only slightly different, the Gohlas have here only one fireball orbiting them. They also do not release their fireball, opting to use it to protect themselves. These enemies are hard to avoid while crossing lava pools, but their lack of fireballs make them easier to destroy. Like every Badnik in the 8-bit titles, these Gohlas do not have Animals inside them.
The Gohla, from
. Sonic Adventure
and Sonic Adventure , the Gohla is referred to as the Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut Gola  (, or ゴーラ Gōra ) ? Gora. In this game, they were given a slight redesign, making them look more mechanized. However, their number of fireballs were reduced to three. They appear in the following  Action Stages for each character:
A Gora spreading its flaming spheres in
. Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut
In gameplay, Gohlas hover along the ground with flaming spheres orbiting them. Once the player approaches one, a Gohla will expand or contract the orbit of its flaming spheres to change its attack radius. Expanding its attack radius, however, leaves it vulnerable to attacks from above. The player must use the
Spin Jump or Homing Attack to defeat a Gohla while avoiding its flaming spheres. Defeating a Gohla will also release an Animal from it.
Sonic Adventure 2
and Sonic Adventure 2 , the Gohla is named Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Gola  (. In this game, they look much like they did in ゴーラ Gōra ) ? , but have four fireballs orbiting them instead of just three.
A Gohla approaching
Gohla are only encountered in the
Death Chamber. In gameplay, they normally hover around aimlessly at first with their fireballs. Like in Sonic Adventure, however, they will start expanding and contracting the orbit of their fireballs when the player gets close, changing their attack radius. Expanding their orbit leaves them vulnerable to attacks from above, however. Like before, the player must avoid the fireballs and hit the Gohlas' core body to defeat them. Defeating a Gohla releases an Animal and awards the player one hundred points.
Sonic Advance 2
, the Gohlas returned with a new design, and are only featured in Sonic Advance 2 Hot Crater. Unlike in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, these Badniks move both back and forth, albeit slowly. The Gohlas also do not release their fireballs, which in this game orbit them laterally. The player can defeat the Gohlas by Spin Jumping on top of them.
Sonic Rivals 2
Card nr. 70 Card nr. 77
, the Gohla from Sonic Rivals 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 make a cameo appearance as collectible cards nr. 70 and 77. Card nr. 70 can be obtained by completing the game 100%, while card nr. 77 can be obtained by getting the high score in Sonic Adventure Frontier Canyon Zone Act 3. Obtaining the latter also unlocks Frontier Canyon Zone's Chao Detector
Sonic Lost World
Gohla attempting to surround
Sonic with fireballs in Frozen Factory Zone 1.
Gohlas make an appearance in both the
Wii U and Nintendo 3DS version of . During the game, the Sonic Lost World Deadly Six hijacked all the Gohlas. In Wii U version of the game, they are found in Desert Ruins Zone 1, Frozen Factory Zone 1 and Sky Road Zone 4. In the 3D sections of Desert Ruins and Frozen Factory, Gohlas either remain stationary or move around in linear patterns while their fireballs orbit them horizontally.
When the player gets close to them, Gohlas have their fireballs orbit
Sonic for a few seconds before making them collide with him to inflict damage. However, using this attack leaves the Gohlas vulnerable. The only way to avoid this attack is to jump as the fireballs close in or destroy the Gohla before the fireballs hit using the Spin Jump, Focused Homing Attack or Spin Dash. In 2.5D sections of Sky Road Zone 4, Gohlas remain stationary in-between ceilings while lines of fireballs orbit them laterally
In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, Gohlas appear in Desert Ruins Zone 1-3. In the 3D sections, their four fireballs orbit them horizontally. In the 2.5D sections, they are found in wide areas or tight cavities, where they have two-to-four fireballs orbit them laterally. The player can use a
Somersault Kick to stun them and then hit them with a Homing Attack, or time an attack so it hits the Gohlas without Sonic touching the fireballs.
, the Gohlas appear as enemies. Appearance-wise, they have the same design they had in Sonic Mania , except they have two fireballs orbiting them instead of four. In this game, they appear only in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Oil Ocean Zone
In gameplay, the Gohlas behave like in their debut game: they hover around and throw fireballs at the player. Should the Gohlas' fireballs land in a pool of oil or on an oil slide in the Oil Ocean Zone however, they will set it alight. These flames will be damaging unless the character is
invincible or equipped with a Fire Shield. Also, when a Gohla is destroyed, it will release an Animal while the remaining fireballs orbiting it will scatter.
Powers and abilities
The Gohlas are capable of levitation, though their main abilities lie in their fireballs which they can hold in orbit around them. They act both as weapons and a shield, and can be launched at their foes By the time of
, Gohlas have demonstrated the ability to sheer their fireballs after launching them, allowing them to attack their targets with fireballs from multiple directions at once.
Sonic Lost World
Gohlas are incapable of generating new fireballs. As such, they are left completely vulnerable should they use up all their fireballs.
The Gohla's name may have been originally intended to be translated to
Sol for the English localization, but the instruction manual of shows no accompanying illustration for that name. Also, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 called this Badnik Sonic Jam Ghora after its Japanese name, which would later be re-translated for their  cards. The European guidebook Sonic Rivals 2 refers Gohla simply as Stay Sonic . Orbinaut Another alternative spelling  Gola is featured during the end credits of 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Nintendo 3DS.

They come in all colours, some of them throw four spiky missiles, some have missiles but don't throw them, and some don't even have missiles (Sonic's careful of those ones because they can't be killed) but they all have a middle bit with big eyes, and they are all slow-moving. If Sonic sees an Orbinaut, back away from it. Jump over the missiles, then attack. If they don't throw their missiles, Sonic jumps over them." ↑
