Not to be confused with Hammerhead (Sonic the Comic).

A leaping platform.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Hammerhead[1] (ハンマーヘッド[2] Hanmāheddo?) is an enemy that appears in in Sonic Advance 2. It is a mass-produced, shark-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman. It appears only in Ice Paradise.



Taking the appearance of an actual Hammerhead shark, these Badniks are mostly gray with blue fins, lower torso and tail fin. They have a yellow-and-black warning sign on their head, symbolizing the danger these Badniks can make to the player.


Hammerhead are shark bots that spring through the air. Their stout heads serve as harmless platforms; to destroy them, attack from below.
