The Hornet-3[1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a robot deployed by the Guardian Units of Nations in Sonic Adventure 2, and is a part of the Hornet series.


The Hornet-3 is the most basic of the Hornet series. It is black and gray in color, with red on the top of each of its arms. It has blue trim around the center of its body and a yellow "eye". Emblazoned just above this eye are the G.U.N. logo and the number "05". The bombs it fires are cone-like in shape, primarily colored black, and have red lights around the front edges.


The Hornet-3 usually patrols an area, but will stop to arm its three bomb pods and throw them at passing enemies. Upon its destruction, it awards the player 100 points. When playing as Tails or Eggman, the player can Lock-On and shoot down its bomb pods along with the Hornet-3 for additional points.

The Hornet-3 appears in the following stages:

Character Stage
Normal mode Hard mode
Tails Prison Lane
Mission Street
Dr. Eggman Lost Colony
Cosmic Wall
Shadow N/A Final Chase
