Abilities and features

Being an airship, the blimp is capable of flight.[1]


Bonds of Friendship

The blimp was flown over Spiral Hill Village by the Babylon Rogues. From it, the gang flew down to the town's Mineral Museum, stole its many jewels, and flew back to the blimp on their Extreme Gear. On the blimp, as the Babylon Rogues celebrated a successful heist, they found out that Storm had accidentally kidnapped Jewel the Beetle, the museum's curator. Her friends Tangle and Whisper then intruded on the blimp to get Jewel back. Eventually, Jet told Storm to throw the trio off of the blimp. Storm did exactly that and threw Jewel off of the blimp. In response, Whisper jumped down to save her, with Tangle following her. In the process, Tangle took back Jewel's stolen gems.[1]

All or Nothing

The Babylon Rogues were soon contacted by Amy Rose to meet her and a group of Metal Virus survivors on Angel Island. The trio used their blimp to fly over there.[2]
