Hey Ho - (S3&K as Knuckles only)
Big Arm is the fourteenth and final boss in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and is the twelfth when playing as Knuckles in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. When playing as Sonic or Tails in Sonic 3 & Knuckles, the boss does not appear. The boss is found at the end of Act 2 in the Launch Base Zone and is found on a platform hanging from the bottom of the rocket launching the Death Egg when playing in Sonic 3, or up on a high platform still within the Launch Base when playing as Knuckles. The machine is also referred to as the Squeeze Tag Machine in Sonic the Comic.

The Big Arm is a modified Egg Mobile with, as the name suggests, a large set of arms as well as spikes attached to the roof of the craft. Dr. Robotnik flies high up at the top of the screen out of reach, and also very low, also out of reach but high enough so that the spikes pose a threat. Periodically he will swoop in the craft and attempt to grab the player, then crush them into the floor of the stage. These moments when the craft is swooping is the only time that it is vulnerable to attack.
