Based on hermit crabs, Iwamodokis are disguise as one of the rocky blocks in Lava Reef Zone. Beneath their disguise they have a pair of black eyes and a grey body with violet details around it.
In Sonic & Knuckles, and the lock-on game Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles, Iwamodokis are only encountered in Lava Reef Zone where they mostly remain stationary under rocks. When the player gets close enough though, the Iwamodokis will open their eyes and prepare to self-destruct, flashing briefly in the process. Eventually, the Iwamodoki will explode into a rocky shower that can damage the player, and release the Animal inside it. No points are awarded when they self-destruct, despite the score object showing up when it self-destructs.
Iwamodokis cannot be destroyed by attacks, so it is best to get out of the way when they detonate. However, these projectiles will bounce harmlessly off anyshieldvariant.
Powers and abilities
Iwamodokis can self-detonate themselves as their method of attack, though at the cost of themselves.
