Iblis Takers (イブリーステイカー Iburīsuteikā?), also known as Takers,[1] are fire-beasts conjured and controlled by Iblis out of the Flames of Disaster, which serve as enemies in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) and Sonic Generations.


The Iblis Takers look like phoenixes made of red and orange lava, crossed with some bat attributes. Rather small, the Iblis Takers have wings resembling those of bats with a claw on their joint. Their eyes are dark-green with two ears that curve backward, similar to horns. They also have a long tail with a pear-shaped tip. When there is no enemy in the vicinity, their bodies glow less.

In Sonic Generations, the Iblis Taker is less skinny and has more shiny red skin, as opposed to in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) where its body looks like it is covered in black dust.

Games appearance

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)


Iblis Taker's bomb attack.

In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Iblis Takers can either attack with fast small fireballs, dive bombs for a melee strike, or fly themselves into the player (the latter leaves them temporarily paralyzed if they miss). Iblis Takers often hover over wide spaces, making them perfect “stepping stones” for crossing over gaps using Homing Attacks. If the Iblis Takers are in group, they will stay away from the player to focus their shot at the playable character.

Some Iblis Takers' command system are linked to other members of their species and makes them serve under them. If their leader is destroyed though, so are they.[2]

Sonic Generations

In Sonic Generations, Iblis Takers reappear in Crisis City. In this game, they have the same attributes and attack patterns as in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). During the Challenge Acts, Iblis Takers become more aggressive with their attacks. When the Iblis Takers are flipping in midair to launch a fireball in particular, the player will take damage when trying to hit them with a Homing Attack.


Like Iblis' other minions, the Iblis Takers are completely mindless and only exist to cause destruction whenever they are.
