Games appearance

Sonic Generations

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, a Giant Chopper from somewhere across spacetime appears as an invincible enemy in Green Hill Act 2 and Seaside Hill Act 2. In Green Hill Act 2, it make its presence known when the player goes inside the dark cave from Green Hill as Modern Sonic while grinding on the three Grind Rails there. Around here, the Giant Chopper will see Sonic and starts chasing him along the Grind Rails, jumping in and out of the water in the progress of catching Sonic, but ultimately failing to catch him.

In Seaside Hill Act 2, if the player starts to go outside the water routes marked with the Buoys, a Giant Chopper will start to follow Sonic. If this chase draws out for too long, the Giant Chopper will ultimately catch Sonic, costing him a life. This will affect even Super Sonic, who is otherwise undefeatable.

Despite its huge size, the Giant Chopper is an expert swimmer, capable of swimming at speeds that rival Sonic's boosting speed. It also has incredible jumping skill, enough to leap far from the surface, and vast amount of strength.
