Jellies,[1] or Jellygnite,[2] are enemies that appear in the 2013 re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. They are jellyfish-based Badniks created by Dr. Eggman.


Jellies are based on jellyfish; their main body has a pair of eyes and three tentacles sprouting from below their body. Each tentacle consists of four ball segments.


Jellies, as an exclusive enemies to the 2013 re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, are only found floating around in the lower water sections of the Hidden Palace Zone.

Similar to the Grabber, the Jellies have more realistic movements. If a character gets caught in their long arms, it will electrify them and blowing themselves up in the process. Like in Grabber's case, the player can escape the Jellies' grasp by mashing the jump button several times. The player has to hit the Jellies upwards to avoid being electrocuted.



  1. Simon Thomley (Stealth), through text, seems to have written "We call it Jellies!"
  2. An administrator of the website Sonic Retro asked about the jellyfish Badnik's wiki entry, dubbing it "Jellygnite".
  3. Craig Stitt, the original designer of the deleted Hidden Palace Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, stated that many (if not all) of the enemies are different, but enemy appearance and behavior were possibly not finalized. To his recollection, he can conclusively confirm that the addition of the boss and organ are new assets and not part of the planned zone.
