Fire-breathing dragon-like creature that pounces on its prey.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Iblis Biter (イブリースバイター Iburīsubaitā?), also known as simply the Biter,[1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a type of fire-based creature amongst Iblis's Minions, and by far the most common form of its kind.


The Iblis Biters are lizard-like creatures made entirely of red and orange lava. They have hardened armor on their head, back and limbs. Their head armor in particular resembles a shark fin. Despite their reptilian shape, they maneuver more like canines.

Jazwares Figures

Following the 20th anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, a Jazwares figure of the Iblis Biter was released for the first time alongside a Silver the Hedgehog figure in 2011. The label on the box was incorrectly spelled "Lblis Biter" instead of "Iblis Biter".

As of 2012, the spelling has not been corrected despite the fact that Jazwares added a new sticker to cover the 20th Anniversary logo from the box (since Sonic's 20th anniversary ended).
