Mushmeanie[1] (ヒドゥン[2] Hidun?, lit. "Hidden") is a recurring enemy in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman that hops around with a mushroom helmet.


Taking the appearance of a mushrooms, the Mushmeanies are robots consisting of a purple head with two eyes and a grey springier on the bottom. They also wear an orange mushroom cap with yellow spots as protection. Originally, Mushmeanie had black eyes, but they were later re-dyed cyan in Sonic Generations and Sonic Lost World.

Game appearances

Sonic & Knuckles


Mushmeanies first appeared in Sonic & Knuckles and its add-on continuation, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. The player encounters them only in Mushroom Hill Zone, where they hop around as tricky obstacles that will damage a reckless player upon touch. The Mushmeanies must be hit twice with the Spin Jump or Spin Attack to be defeated, as the first hit only removes their mushroom cap. It is only after their cap is gone that they can be destroyed.

Sonic Generations

In the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations, Mushmeanies appear in Mushroom Hill. In this game, they retain the attack patterns and means of protection they had in their debut. However, Modern Sonic can also easily ram over them using the Boost, regardless of the Mushmeanies' cap.

Sonic Lost World

In the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World, the Mushmeanies returned as enemies. During the game, the Mushmeanies, along with the other Badniks, got hijacked by the Deadly Six. They are found in Silent Forest Zone 1, 2 and Sky Road Zone ?, where they retain their attack patterns and means of protection from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. However, in this game, the player can only remove the Mushmeanies' cap with the Flying Kick.

Powers and abilities

Mushmeanies possess springs that let them bounce around, and are equipped with mushroom cap-shaped helmets that can block an otherwise fatal hit once.
