Physical description


Mushmeanie (ヒドゥン Hidun?, lit. "Hidden") is a Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik. They appear in the Mushroom Hill Zone in Sonic & Knuckles and its add-on continuation, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles.



Taking the appearance of a mushroom, Mushmeanie is a purple robot that bounces with its springer. It has a mushroom shield colored orange to protect it from Sonic destroying it.

Attack pattern

Mushmeanies hop around aimlessly in a fixed area. They must be hit twice to be destroyed. The first attack will knock off the mushroom cap, exposing the spherical robot head, and the second attack with Spin Jump will destroy the Badnik.

Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles


Mushmeanie first appeared in Sonic & Knuckles and its add-on continuation, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, in the Mushroom Hill Zone. They easily jump around in the stage, as if Sonic runs into a Mushmeanie, he will lose all of his rings. Sonic must first jump to remove the shield (which is an orange mushroom) to defeat it via jumping on top of it.

Sonic Generations

Mushmeanie Badniks would have not returned up until the release of Sonic Generations. They appear on the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Generations, where they are located on the remake of Mushroom Hill Zone. They have the same attack pattern and appearance, as when playing as Classic Sonic, you can either jump or perform a Homing Attack (when Classic Sonic acquires the ability later in the game) to destroy the badnik. Modern Sonic, however, can either perform a Homing Attack or easily use the Sonic Boost to destroy the enemy, as the latter will be ran over by Modern Sonic's speed.

Sonic Lost World

Mushmeanie also appeared in Sonic Lost World. During the game, it turns out that Badniks, including Mushmeanies, got hijacked by the Deadly Six. They appear on the Wii U version of the game, as they appear on the Silent Forest stage. Their attack pattern and appearance remain the same as from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, only Sonic can use the Parkour move set, such as the Flying Kick, to defeat the Badniks other than using the Homing Attack.
