The rat in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

The rat is a creature in the Sonic the Hedgehog series which appears in the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog. They are a race of small rodent Animals native to West Side Island, and are some of Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies' friends. They were once sought by Dr. Robotnik. who would use them as power sources for his Badnik army and imprison them in Capsules for later use.



The general rat resembles greatly their namesake. They are very small rodents with grey fur, round pink ears, a pointy nose, two dark eyes, pink paws, and a thin pink tail.

Over the course of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the rats and the other Animals from West Side Island were captured by Dr. Robotnik to become power sources for Badnik that Robotnik needed to finish the Death Egg.[1] The rats can be found in Mystic Cave Zone where they pop out of destroyed badniks or the opened Capsule at the end of the second Act. In the 2013 mobile re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, they can also be found in Hidden Palace Zone.


  • The rat is the only Animal from the Mega Drive-era games (up to Sonic & Knuckles) that was not given an official name in either the Western or Japanese manuals.
