Turbo Spiker artwork from Sonic the Hedgehog 3.


Turbo Spiker, later known in Japan as Yadrin Jet (ヤドリンジェット Yadorinjetto?),[citation needed] is a hermit crab-type Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik, which appears at Hydrocity Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. Turbo Spiker appears to be a synthesis of two previous Badniks: Spikder from the original Sonic the Hedgehog and Spiker from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.


Turbo Spiker will move back and forth waiting for the player to approach. If the player approaches it, Turbo Spiker will fire its spike rocket upwards, making it difficult should the player attempt to destroy it from above. It then becomes vulnerable and easy to destroy.

Sonic the Comic

A Turbo Spiker appeared in the Fleetway's Sonic the Comic, as one of several Badniks about to be melted down by Doctor Ivo Robotnik as punishment for failing him.[1]


  • Its alternate Japanese name, Yadrin Jet, is derived from the Japanese word for hermit crab, Yadokari.
