Motobugs are Badniks from the Sonic the Hedgehog Series, and are the first enemy encountered in the series. They resemble robotic ladybugs.


Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit)Edit

The first appearance of Motobugs is in the original 16-Bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog, and their behaviour in most future games can be traced back to this game. Motobugs appear in Green Hill Zone, and move back and forth in the zone. They will attempt to chase Sonic if they see him, but their slow speed and lack of attacks mean that they can only hurt Sonic if he happens to run directly into one. They can be easily destroyed with one Spin Jump or Spin Attack.

Sonic the Hedgehog (8-Bit)Edit

Motobugs have a similar role in this game that they did in the 16-Bit version, but they appear far less frequently in Green Hill Zone than in the 16-Bit version, with a total of only two Motobugs in the first Act. They are additionally smaller than their 16-Bit counterparts, but they otherwise act the same.
