 Sonic the Hedgehog
This is the first boss of Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit) and the first boss fought by Dr. Robotnik against Sonic in his Egg Mobile. Dr. Robotnik uses the Egg Mobile frequently after this encounter, attached with various different weapons and devices. This boss takes place at the end of Act 3 of the Green Hill Zone.
Dr. Robotnik attacks with a giant chained chequered wrecking ball attached to the underside of the Egg Mobile. As he flies the craft left and right of the boss area, the wrecking ball swings from side to side to attack Sonic. This makes the middle of the screen the most dangerous area to be in as that is the bottom of the arc. Sonic can easily dodge the wrecking ball by staying at the far left or right of the screen underneath the platforms. Once Dr. Robotnik has turned and the wrecking ball is swinging away from Sonic, he can jump safely onto the platforms and reach Dr. Robotnik's craft with a Spin Attack. Doing this 8 times will defeat the boss.
 Sonic 3 & KnucklesSky Sanctuary Zone and is the eleventh boss in Sonic & Knuckles when playing as Sonic and the twenty-fourth when playing as Sonic and Tails.
The boss is exactly the same as it's previous counterpart seen in the Green Hill Zone, only this time it is piloted by Mecha Sonic, instead of Dr. Robotnik.
