The Dragfly[note 1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, midge-based Badnik model created by Dr. Robotnik.


The Dragflies resemble robotic midges. They each have a purple and yellow-striped body with two pairs of wings on their backs and two pairs of purple legs with gray joints. They each also have a large yellow head with a purple eyebrows and two cartoonish black eyes.


In Sonic 3D Blast, the Dragflies are encountered exclusively as enemies in Spring Stadium Zone. In gameplay, they fly erratically around their designated area, trying to fly into Sonic. However, they do not possess any form of offensive attack, meaning that they can only damage SOnic if he runs into them. However, they seem to be head towards Sonic when he gets close.

These Badniks can easily be destroyed with a Spin Attack, Spin Dash or Spin Jump. Upon their destruction, they release their respective power source, a blue Flicky, which can be picked up by Sonic.

Powers and abilities

The Dragflies are capable of flight.


  1. This Badnik was given no official name upon or after the release of Sonic 3D Blast. However, its name was revealed in the Debug Mode for the unofficial Sonic 3D Blast: Director's Cut video game developed by Jon Burton, the lead programmer of the Genesis version of Sonic 3D Blast. When asked about its validity, Burton confirmed that this Badnik's name was used in the original game.
