— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

Bearenger[1] (ベアンジャ[2] Beanjā?) is one of the secondary antagonists and the second boss of Tails' Skypatrol. He is an anthropomorphic bear and one of the three henchmen of Witchcart.


Tails' Skypatrol

Along with Hocke-Wulf and Carrottia, Bearenger was one of three henchmen of Witchcart, who was threatening to transform every inhabitant of the island into crystal. He was defeated by Miles "Tails" Prower.


Bearenger has been described as snarling and foul-tempered.[1]


Bearenger is the second boss in the game and is fought at the end of Ruin Wood. He pilots a small, light-blue rocket with a shark's face painted on it.

Boss guide

During the fight, he fires three small projectiles at Tails at a time. Destroying each projectile gives a hundred points to the player. Like most other bosses in the game, the player has to land twenty hits or toss Bearenger into the ground four times to defeat him.

Bearenger, from Sonic Universe #83.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics, Bearenger's full name is Bearenger the Grizzly. In this media, he is a part of the Witchcarters, a trio of mobian thugs controlled by Wendy Naugus against their will.


Bearenger's early beta design.

  • The prototype design of Bearenger, seen in some early beta footage of Tails' Skypatrol, had him resembling the recurring antagonist of Disney's Mickey Mouse, Pete.
    • Interestingly enough, Pete himself was originally designed as a bear in the Alice Comedies and the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit shorts, before he was redesigned into a cat for his antagonism against Mickey.
  • The rocket-like vehicle Bearenger is seen riding is similar in appearance to fighter planes called Flying Tigers utilized during World War II.
  • Bearenger is the only boss missing from the Japanese box artwork for Tails' Skypatrol.
