Corkey[1] (レーザー[2] Rēzā?, lit. "Laser") is an enemy that appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It is a mass-produced Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.



Corkeys are security drones with black and grey armor and a laser launcher on the bottom of their bodies.

Corkeys are encountered in the internal sections of Launch Base Zone, where they slide along overhead tracks on the ceilings. However, some of them are also found remaining stationary at outdoor sections or on ceilings. When the player gets close to them from below, the Corkeys will position themselves above the playable characters and fire a laser down at them for a couple of seconds. Despite their position though, the playable characters can easily reach and destroy them with Spin Jump.
