This is the fifth and final boss of Sonic the Hedgehog (8-Bit) and found at the end of the short act 3 of the Sky Base Zone. The boss is built into the sky fortress that makes up the Sky Base Zone itself and is somewhat similar in design to the boss seen in the Final Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit). Dr. Robotnik has encased himself in a tube to protect himself from Sonic's attacks and installed a rolling wall of electricity that moves across the stage. There is also an extra weapon that shoots small balls of electricity.

The tactic is to wait until the rolling wall of electricity has run out of energy and switches off, making it roll back towards Dr. Robotnik in order to charge. In those brief moments Sonic must hit the tube encasing Dr. Robotnik, as well as dodging the small balls of electricity which he fires periodically. As Dr. Robotnik takes more damage the wall becomes more erratic in holding it's charge and blinks on and off, here Sonic must dash between the wall whilst it is off , attack Dr. Robotnik and get back to the safe spot at the far left of the screen. Additionally, as more damage is done, the missile, which previous only fired in a diagonal direction, becomes a homing missile.
