The Burrobot is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a mole-based Badnik variant created by Dr. Eggman for excavation work.


An early model of the Burrobot created by could be seen in the Skull Egg Zone. They have a blue body consisting of a round torso and a large head with round white eyes and black pupils, gray disks for ear pieces and a large gray cone-shaped drill bit for a nose. On their head they wear a yellow hard hat. Their chest is gray, their shoulders are yellow and round, and their two arms are gray with three sharp fingers on each hand. As legs, they have tracked wheels on each side, which runs between two wheels; one is small and one is bigger.

Later models of the Burrobot are much more detailed, and the ear pieces also have red bottom placed screws.



Several Burrobots were laid out in the Scrap Brain Zone to combat Sonic the Hedgehog. However, they failed to stop him.[1]

Worlds Collide

During Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily's operation in the Skull Egg Zone, a Burrobot got into this pocket dimension where it came across a Mettaur-Chao and fought it.[2]

Shattered World Crisis

Note: From the reader's point of view, this picks up from where the Burrobots' original timeline ended.

A group of Burrobots were stationed in Crystal Cave to excavate the Chaos Emerald inside. Amidst the Shattered World Crisis, the Freedom Fighters came to Crystal Cave and shut down the Burrobots, their fellow badniks and other systems so they could steal the Chaos Emerald.[3] However, the Burrobots came back online after about an hour and tried stopping the Freedom Fighters, but without luck.[4][5]

Powers and abilities

The Burrobots' specialty is digging with their drill-nose.
