Pointdexter (ポイントデクスター Pointodekusutā?),[1][2] later known in Japan as Puff (パフ Pafu?),[3] is an enemy that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It is a mass-produced pufferfish-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.

Appearance

Pointdexter-spr

Based on the pufferfish, Pointdexters have grey bodies with spikes all around, a blue face and occiput with yellow borders.

Overview

Pointdexters appear in the underwater sections of Hydrocity Zone, where they swims around slowly, periodically drawing out and retracting their spikes. However, they make no effort to attack the player.

Pointdexters can easily be destroyed with a Spin Jump when their spikes are retracted, but they will damage the player when their spikes are out. They can also be hard to notice, if the player quickly falls down underwater.

In other media

Sonic the Comic

Pointdexter also appeared in several issues of the British publication Sonic the Comic, after Doctor Robotnik's discovery of Floating Island. In this continuity, they are able to float through the air, much like Bubbles from the Marble Garden Zone in Sonic 3. In their first appearance in the comic, Pointdexter appeared in this zone.[4]
