The Condor[1] (コンドール[2] Kondōru?) is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, falcon-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.

Appearance

The Condors resemble mechanical purple falcons with a pair of small eyes and a yellow beak. They also have rocket engines attached below their wings.

Game appearances

Sonic Advance 3

In Sonic Advance 3, Condors appear as enemies in Route 99. In gameplay, they fly back and forth slowly in high places. When the player gets close to a Condor however, it will charge towards the playable character to damage them while dropping a Bomb directly downward in the process. After this, the Condor pulls itself back and repeats this pattern.

As the Condors usually fly above, the player can defeat them with the Spin Jump or melee moves when they get close. However, some Condors are placed in inconvenient locations, such as above Seesaws, making them one of the more frustrating enemies the player will encounter. If a Condor is destroyed though, it will release a Ring.

Sonic Jump series

Sonic Jump

In Sonic Jump, the Condors appear as enemies. In this game, they only appear in Mechanical Zone. In gameplay, the Condors only fly left and right. In order to destroy a Condor, the player must jump into it from below; touching a Condor while falling will cause Sonic to take damage.

Sonic Jump 2

In Sonic Jump 2, which serves as a remaster of its prequel, the Condors appear as enemies in the same location and behave in the same way as in their previous appearance.

Powers and abilities

As per their design, the Condors are capable of flight. In addition, they are able to deploy explosive bombs.
