Doodlebug Mecha, also known as Arijigoku Mecha, is the first boss in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-Bit) and is found at the end of Act 3 in the Under Ground Zone. Just before Sonic reaches the boss, Dr. Robotnik actually saves Sonic from falling into a pit of lava and carries him to the boss area, presumably preferring for Sonic to die at the hands of his newest creation.
The Doodlebug Mecha appears partially hidden in the ground, only exposing his head and his large and deadly pincers. Because of this, he cannot be attacked directly. Dr. Robotnik is also off-screen to the left, dropping bombs at Sonic who is effectively trapped between him and Doodlebug Mecha. Sonic has to jump over the bombs, which then roll down the hill and damage Doodlebug Mecha. After 6 hits the boss is defeated.
