Death Ball is the fourteenth boss in Sonic & Knuckles when playing as Sonic and the twenty-seventh when playing as Sonic and Tails in Sonic 3 & Knuckles. The boss appears at the end of the act 2 of the Death Egg Zone. Knuckles does not travel to the Death Egg Zone so he does not face this boss.
The Death Ball is a large floating ball with bouncers attached to the outside, meaning that it cannot be attacked by Sonic or Tails directly. Periodically it legs out small spikes on wheels which roll back and forth, dashing into these will cause the player to bounce off of them, they also explode after a while, sending the spikes outwards. At the side of the stage are two tunnels which take the player up to the ceiling, reversing the gravity, this also in turn causes the wheeled spikes to fall upwards and causing damage to the Death Ball if they collide with it. Also, if they don't collide and instead spear into the ceiling, they can be dashed into to send them downwards and into the Death Ball. These two methods are the only way to cause damage to the Death Ball.
