Sonic in Final Egg, from . Sonic Adventure
, its enhanced port Sonic Adventure , and the Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut 2010 remaster, Beats are enemies encountered exclusively in Sonic's version of Final Egg. Unlike other enemies, they only appear three times in the Action Stage, during the final third of the stage.
In gameplay, Beats are found in giant, open rooms, with dozens of them waiting for the player to appear. When the player enters such rooms, all local Beats will crawl slowly towards Sonic. Once they get close enough to him, they self-destruct, damaging Sonic if he is within range. However, the player can defeat them without causing them to explode by using a
Spin Attack-related move. However when some Beats are defeated, others will come out of small latches to replace them. Eventually though, these robots will stop spawning after enough are defeated. Also, Beats cannot exit the rooms in which they reside.
Unlike other Badniks, Beats do not release
Animals, regardless of how they are destroyed.
