The Woodrow[1][note 1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic Mania. It is a mass-produced, woodpecker-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.

Appearance

The individual Woodrow is a woodpecker-based Badnik that is colored green with a purple body and magenta-colored feathers. It also has a gray piston-like beak with yellow clamp-like feet.

Overview

WoodrowBombs

A Woodrow loosening bombs.

Woodrows appear in Press Garden Zone Act 2. In gameplay, they each occupy a tree, never moving from their position. When the player gets close, they use their beak to shake the tree they hang onto, which is holding multiple damage-inducing black bombs, until it drop its bombs on the player. It takes them a couple of seconds to loosen the Bombs though, and the bombs will remain completely harmless until they fall off their tree.

A simple attack can defeat this Badnik, releasing an animal inside.

Powers and abilities

Woodrows possess piston-like beaks which are strong enough to shaken full-grown trees.

Notes

  1. While not listed in any instruction manuals, the internal files in the PC release of Sonic Mania refers to this enemy as "Woodrow".
