The RhinoBot is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a mass-produced, rhino-based Badnik model made by Dr. Robotnik.


As their name suggests, the RhinoBots are based on a rhinoceros. RhinoBots are similar to Moto Bugs in terms of design, with a single wheel below their body. Their body is covered in grey armor and small ventilation holes. RhinoBots' head reminisces of a rhinoceros, with two horns on their nose area, mean black eyes and metallic triangular ears.

In one of Grimer's Death Egg II simulations, a RhinoBot gave chase to Sonic amidst a Badnik attack on the Emerald Hill Zone, but was lead into a pit filled with spikes and got destroyed.[1]


Capable of speech, the RhinoBots are vicious and evil machines which will relentlessly pursue their targets.[1]

Powers and abilities

The Rhinobots are some of Robotnik's faster Badniks, capable of giving even Sonic a good chase.[1]
