The Spider[note 1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic 3D Blast. It is a mass-produced, spider-based Badnik created by Dr. Robotnik.

Appearance

The Spiders resemble yellow and purple-striped mechanical tarantulas with spikes around their bodies, large cartoonish eyes, and long fangs.

Overview

The Spiders are encountered exclusively in Spring Stadium Zone. In gameplay, they simply shuffle back and forth along a straight diagonal. They can only harm Sonic if he walks straight into them.

The spikes on the Spiders are purely cosmetic, meaning they will pose no hazard when Sonic attacks them with a Spin Dash or Spin Jump. Upon the Spiders' destruction, they release their respective power source, a Flicky, which can be picked up by Sonic.

Notes

  1. This Badnik was given no official name upon or after the release of Sonic 3D Blast. However, its name was revealed in the Debug Mode for the unofficial Sonic 3D Blast: Director's Cut video game developed by Jon Burton, the lead programmer of the Genesis version of Sonic 3D Blast. When asked about its validity, Burton confirmed that this Badnik's name was used in the original game.
