Aotento (青テント Ao tento?)[1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic Advance 3. It is a mass-produced, ladybug-like Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman and a variant of the Moto Bug.


The Aotentos are based on ladybugs.


The Aotentos only appear in Route 99. When approached, it will fly up into the air for a short time before landing back down. This robot can only be destroyed if attacked from below as hitting it from any other side will damage the player.


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