The Blastoid[1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman, and the counterpart of the Blastoid from an alternate dimension set in the recent past.


Resembling miniature versions of an artillery bunker, Blastoids are small blue and yellow robots with small eyes and a cannon.


In Sonic Mania, and its expansion Sonic Mania Plus, Blastoids are enemies found in both Acts of Hydrocity Zone. In gameplay, they sit statically, commonly near collapsing bridges, ledges, or on top of large loops, where they can be tough to avoid. When the playable characters approaches them, they will fire three orange projectiles at a 40° angle. These projectiles can be deflected by using Shield-derived power-ups or through Mighty's Spin Attack. In underwater sections, lone Blastoids are required to be defeated to make platforms crumble and open lower paths for the player.

The player is able to destroy Blastoids by attacking them with a Spin Attack-related move, although this can be tricky due to them firing projectiles. Upon their destruction, they will release an Animal and award the player with 100 points.

Powers and abilities

With their guns, Blastoids are able to fire energy projectiles.
