The Ark Pod is an object that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a vehicle utilized by B.A.R.F. to transport Badniks.



The Ark Pod is a large, flying vehicle, much larger than the Barfmobile. However, like it, the Ark Pod is yellow in color. It resembles a fish, having fin-like protrusions for its wings and has a face resembling that of a shark's.

Features and traits

The Ark Pod is capable of flight and can transport and carry multiple passengers.


Thanks to a plan concocted by Robotnik, Cam and Bert were ordered to place Badniks from the Palmtree Panic Zone in the Green Hill Zone. The Palmtree Panic troops were initially reluctant to get in the Ark Pod, but a smash from Bert's Number One Hammer was enough to convince them to obey. The Ark Pod then flew to Green Hill, where the new Badniks instantly claimed Green Hill for their own and destroyed many native Badniks. With help from B.A.R.F., the Green Hill Badniks were evacuated to the Ark Pod. After a quick flight to the Miracle Planet and back, the Ark Pod then flew to the Badnik Development and Research Facility to create the Seven Badniks. The Pod then flew the new soldiers to Green Hill Zone, rounding the rebels up onto the ship and flying them back to the Palmtree Panic Zone.[1][2][3][4]


  • Over the course of its solo appearance, the Ark Pod made three return visits to the Miracle Planet and another to an unknown Zone.
