The Jellygnite[1][note 1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, jellyfish-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman, and the counterpart of the Jellygnite from an alternate dimension set in the recent past.


Based on jellyfishes, the Jellygnites' main bodies are a metallic cap with a pair of eyes and three tentacles sprouting from their bottom. Each tentacle consists of four ball segments.


In Sonic Mania, and its expansion Sonic Mania Plus, Jellygnites are enemies found in Hydrocity Zone Act 1. In gameplay, they are found in the underwater sections of the Act, swimming up and down. Similar to Grabbers however, they can catch the playable character if they approach. After doing so, they will self-destruct to damage the character without releasing the Animals inside of them. However, Jellygnites can easily be destroyedby hitting their heads with a Spin Jump. Doing so will release the Animals inside of them and award the player with 100 points.

Powers and abilities

The Jellygnites have an ability to swim. When they manage to catch their prey in their tentacles, they are able to self-destruct to inflict damage to their captive.
