The Assaulting Batter Blimp is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a Badnik created by Dr. Robotnik during his attempt to steal a Chaos Emerald from Angel Island.


The Assaulting Batter Blimp is a circular, white and red robotic unit that has four rockets that help keep it afloat. It can also launch out smaller, white orbs that are used as weapons.


The Assaulting Batter Blimp ambushed Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower briefly after they crash-landed on Angel Island. Sonic himself was nearly hit by the robot's flamethrower. In order to ensure their safety, Sonic and Tails both fled into a nearby pool of water.[1]

The blimp was used by Archimedes during one of his tests of Knuckles.[2]
