Levitation Flame protection
Flamer  ( is an enemy that appears in the ボーラ  Bohla ) ? . It is a mass-produced, sea urchin-based Sonic the Hedgehog series Badnik created by Dr. Eggman, and a variant of the Orbinaut model
Compared to other
Orbinaut variants, Flamers have a slightly different appearance. While they possess the Orbinauts' classic spherical body, they are yellow with gray sides. Flamers also have cyan facial section, black eyes, and four gray and yellow spherical flamethrowers instead of spike balls orbiting their bodies.
, the Flamers can only be found at Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II Oil Desert Zone. In gameplay, these Badniks float in midair where they use the flamethrowers orbiting their bodies to spew out flames, thereby creating a wide damage area that the playable characters can easily get caught in when trying to pass them or when trying to attack them. Despite that, it is possible to defeat a Flamer with a Spin Jump, a Rolling Combo or by using the Special Combination Item Box.
Besides damaging the playable character. Flamers can also temporarily ignite the oily floors with one of their flamethrowers, thus creating fire waves that spread out on both sides. These are also sections in the Oil Ocean Zone where these enemies move very often, so it is recommended to move carefully if the player spots one.
