The Buzz Bomber is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog film series produced by Paramount Pictures and its spin-offs. It is a mass-produced, bee-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.


Buzz Bombers resemble robotic bees, each with a large pronounced abdomen, a sharp red stinger, white plating, two rockets on their side, two propellers on their back that spin so fast, they give the appearance of wings buzzing, and a singular glowing red eye for a head. Master Emerald-powered Buzz Bombers sported silver plating with a glowing green eye and green stinger.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

The Buzz Bombers were the newest Badniks to Dr. Robotnik's forces following his return to Earth. After contacting Agent Stone to let him know that he had returned, Stone sent a pod full of Buzz Bombers and regular Badniks to Robotnik. The Buzz Bombers were later put to use against Sonic and Tails in Siberia, proving themselves very dangerous as Sonic evaded their laser blasts. When he encountered a large group of them setting up a laser web to trap him during his trip down a mountainside, he simply went into supersonic speed mode to make it safely through the gauntlet before using one of them to take out the other Badniks.

The Buzz Bombers were later sent against Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, this time empowered by the Master Emerald that Robotnik had absorbed, when the trio fought the Giant Eggman Robot in Green Hills. However, they were easily dispatched by the trio.
