Iwamodoki (イワモドキ?) is a Badnik from Sonic & Knuckles, as well as its locked-on form, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. It can be found lying under rocks in Lava Reef Zone.


Iwamodoki lurks in waiting until Sonic approaches, then flashes briefly and explodes, sending parts of itself in various directions. The Badnik cannot be destroyed by Sonic, so it is best to get out of the way of the projectiles, although they will bounce harmlessly off any shield currently active.


  • Iwamodoki means "pseudo-rock" in Japanese.
  • Although this Badnik blows itself up, its organic battery comes out unharmed and flies away.
  • Although the name does not show up in any manual, "Iwamodoki" appears to come from Japanese sources; however, a Sonic The Comic Q Zone which covered the game refers to the enemy as "Mushmeanie".[1] This may be analogous to Blastoid and Blastoid in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
