Blastoid[1] (スパークル[2] Supākuru?, lit. "Sparkle") is an enemy that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It is a grenade-shaped Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.



The Blastoids are very small Badniks resembling grenades. They have a silver body with a pair of wide eyes, footstools, and an antenna that creates a spark line between it and the Blastoids' upper point.


The Blastoids are only found in Carnival Night Zone, where they usually appear in small groups within open corridors, and can hang from the ceilings as well as standing stationery on the floor. After a set amount of time, the Sparkles will shoot from one side of the tunnel to the other, emitting two electrical charges as it does so in a forty-five degree angle.

The player has to carefully when crossing the Blastoids. As long as they are not travelling or emitting sparks, the Sparkles can be defeated by being jumped on, or by using the Spin Dash.
