Akatento (赤テント Aka tento?)[1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, ladybug-like Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman and a variant of the Moto Bug.



The Akatentos are based on ladybugs.


The Akatentos only appear in Route 99. In gameplay, this enemy has no proactive attack or defense; it simply moves back and forwards for a set distance, posing a problem only if the player walks right into it.


  • "Aka" means "red" in Japanese, whilst "tentō" is derived from "tentōmushi", the Japanese word for "ladybug".
  • The Akatento may have been based on the Moto Bug as it resembles a ladybug and shares the same attack pattern.
  • The Akatento looks similar in appearance to the Aotento.
