Electric Generators are small generators that shoot out electricity.
Small gene
They can be very hazardous to Sonic due to their placement.

Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit) 

The generators appear in both Acts 1 and 2 of Scrap Brain Zone, amongst many other dangerous traps designed to kill Sonic.

Sonic the Hedgehog (8-bit) 

The generators appear in Scrap Brain just like in the 16-bit version. Electric wires that are similar to the generators appear in Act 1 of Sky Base Zone in the background. The wires periodically light up, causing damage to Sonic if he makes contact with one.

Sonic CD

Gene 2

Generators in Sonic CD.

The generators design is different then they were in Sonic the Hedgehog. They appear in Wacky Workbench, although they shoot a line of electricity this time. To dodge them, Sonic must get on a pole and move hand-over-hand across them.

Sonic & Knuckles

The generators appear in Death Egg Zone as long panels of electricity on the floor or ceiling.  The ceiling ones shoot out lightning bolts periodically and can even harm Sonic through a lightning shield for some reason.

In other media

Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

An electric generator appears in the episode "Slowwww Going". Scratch attached the "Subatomic Slow Go Beam Weapon" and got zapped by a bolt of electricity from a generator as he was walking along.
