|Ruff Badnik (left), with Stripes Badnik|
|First Appearance||Sonic the Comic #4|
The badnik was first seen in the fourth issue, Day of the Badniks, and appeared to be especially designed to capture Ruff, or at the very least another dog. This badnik, along with the Stripes Badnik, were able to capture both Ruff and Stripes who were out walking in the Emerald Hill Zone. At the end of the issue, Dr. Robotnik is forced to destroy the Ruff Badnik after Sonic threatens to perform a Spin Attack whilst holding onto his moustache.
The design is that of a small dog with three heads, like the legendary dog, Cerberus. Unlike most other badniks, this badnik can operate without the need of an organic battery, however as the badnik also seems programmed to locate an organic battery, it can be assumed that it requires one to either function long term, or perhaps fully power up.
