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. 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 drive back and forth waiting for the player to approach. If the player tries to jump over it, Turbo Spiker will fire its spike rocket at them very quickly. It then becomes vulnerable and easy to destroy.

Appearances in other media

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.
