It resembles a red Hornet-3, but is noticeably faster. It usually patrols an area, but it arms its bomb pods and throws them at the player should he/she approach. Upon its destruction, it awards the player a hundred points. It only appears in Hard Mode for Meteor Herd. When playing as Tails or Eggman, the player can lock-on and shoot down its bomb pods along with the Hornet for additional points.
