Jimmy's name pays homage to the now-deceased Polygon Jim, a member of the Sonic hacking community who was known for making a ROM hack of the first Sonic the Hedgehog game titled 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 and Sonic Mania Plus.
Jimmy is a regular-looking Motobug from Dr. Eggman's Badnik army. However, Jimmy possesses two distinguishing features: its large size for a Motobug and red rings around its pupils.
During the Phantom Egg boss fight, Jimmy was modified to resemble a bulky motorbike with long tail pipes and thick wheels.
Eventually, while Sonic and his crew fought the 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.
Eventually, while Sonic's group 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.
Jimmy is shown to be rather wild and restless for a Motobug. Its eyes may also indicate a loony and chaotic nature. It is said to act like a raging bull.
Powers and abilities
Jimmy has proven itself to be faster than the average Motobug from his time. It also possesses a telescopic wheel which it can use to make surprisingly high jumps.
