, a member of the Polygon Jim Sonic hacking community who was known for making a ROM hack of the first game titled Sonic the Hedgehog Motobug the Badnik in Sonic the Hedgehog where a Moto Bug is the playable character instead of Sonic. It was able to jump by extending its wheel, an ability which would be used by Jimmy during the Heavy Rider boss fight in Sonic Mania.
Jimmy is a regular-looking Moto Bug from
Dr. Eggman's first generation of Badniks. However, Jimmy possesses two distinguishing feature: its large size for a Moto Bug and red rings around its pupils.
Phantom Egg boss fight, Jimmy was modified to resemble a bulky motorbike with long tail pipes and thick wheels.

Phantom Egg, the Phantom Rider and Jimmy, now modified into a bulky motorcycle, were given the opportunity to fight the heroes when they got sent to their arena. However, they failed to defeat the trio.

Not long after, Jimmy and the Heavy Rider got reunited in the Green Hill Zone. Afterward, the Heavy Rider would ride Jimmy everywhere as before. However, Jimmy ran away after Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Mighty and Ray defeated him and the Heavy Rider in Lava Reef Zone.
Eventually, while Sonic and co. fought the
Phantom Egg, the Phantom Rider and Jimmy, now modified into a bulky motorcycle again, were given the opportunity to fight the heroes when they got sent to their arena. Like before, however, they failed to defeat the heroes.
