Spiny is a recurring enemy in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman. They usually reside in mechanized Zones where they attack intruders with energy blasts.
The Spiny is one of the few Badnik models whose design is not derived from an animal, though comparisons can be drawn to barnacles, sea anemones, and starfish.
These robots scuttle about using five grippers located on their underside. The body of the Spiny Badniks are extremely small, with two photo-receptors jammed close together near a red spout at the top of their bodies. Around this spout prong out several triangular metal flaps which can unfold like a flower blooming. Standard Spiny colors are mainly gray with a bit of red mixed in, especially around the spout region.
