Description, Sonic Unleashed[1]

The Gold Aero-Cannon is an enemy that appears in Sonic Unleashed. They are a model of Badniks and a variant of the Aero-Cannon, made of pure gold, that Dr. Eggman built on a whim.[1] They serve as hovering gun turrets that can teleport.


The Gold Aero-Cannons are relatively small robots. They have an orb-shaped torso with two small semicircles on the bottom functioning as feet, and a hemisphere attached on each side. Their head is a think bar running along the top surface of their torso, and have two green eyes and a small straight field of green light running across its face, resembling teeth. Sticking out from the chest and a little from their back is a long single-barreled cannon. They are all colored golden yellow, green and silver.

Powers and abilities

The Gold Aero-Cannons can levitate in mid-air on their own and teleport away from their location. Thanks to the cannon built into them, the Gold Aero-Cannons can fire highly powerful energy blasts at their opponents.

The Gold Aero-Cannon attacking in the Wii/PlayStation 2 version of Sonic Unleashed.

The Gold Aero-Cannons are an extremely rare type of enemy in Sonic Unleashed and can only be encountered in the daytime Action Stages/Stages, like in Arid Sands and Jungle Joyride. When destroyed, they give a large amount bonus points to the player's overall score.

In battle, the Gold Aero-Cannons attack by shooting fast and precise projectiles at the player. On the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version they fire several energy shots at once, but on the Wii/PlayStation 2 they fire missiles and at a fast rate.

After taking their shots, the Gold Aero-Cannons teleport away as they reel from firing, but reappear less than a second later. When the player is trying to perform a Homing Attack on them, caution is advised since there is a good chance they can hit Sonic with their shots before he can hit them.
