Mega Chopper, later known in Japan as  Kapu Kapu (, カプカプ kapukapu ) ? [ is piranha-type ] citation needed Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik. It appears at Hydrocity Zone in (and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 ). Despite the name, Mega Choppers are actually small red colored Badniks.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
Mega Chopper can be found swimming around or leaping up from below the floor of the Hydrocity Zone. Although it is a small Badnik, it is still troublesome. It does not damage the player directly; instead, it latches onto them and drains
Rings at a steady rate until the ring count reaches zero, which results in death. In addition, as long as Mega Chopper is attached, the player's speed is reduced; also he/she cannot jump or do spin-related attacks manually. The Mega Chopper can be thrown off either by forcing the player into a Spin Attack (such as when he/she is going through the transparent tubes (in Act 1) or the turquoise helix slides (in Act 2)) or by pressing random buttons. Otherwise, this badnik is easily destroyed with a Spin Attack.
Although its name would suggest it is related to Chopper from the original , it is actually more similar to Sonic the Hedgehog Chop Chop from Aquatic Ruin Zone in .
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
It is also much smaller than either of these two Badniks, despite having "mega" in its name.
Its Japanese name is identical to the Kapu Kapu from Chu Chu Rocket, another Sega series.
