The Jousun[1] (ジョースン[2] Jōsun?) is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, swordfish-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.



The Jousuns resemble mechanical green swordfish with a rocket thruster on their belly.

Game appearances

Sonic Advance 3

In Sonic Advance 3, the Jousuns only appear in Ocean Base. In gameplay, they lurk just outside the Zone's climbable waterfalls or in submerged sections, hovering up and down and waiting for their victim. Once the playable character gets in their line of sights, they will surround themselves in a green energy field and charge into the playable character at high speed, inflicting damage. Because of their placements and fast attack patterns, they can be tricky to avoid. Also, upon destroying a Jousun, it will drop a Ring.

Sonic Jump series

Sonic Jump

In Sonic Jump, the Jousuns appear as enemies. In this game, they only appear in Blue Sky Zone. In gameplay, the Jousuns only fly left and right. In order to destroy a Jousun, the player must jump into it from below; touching a Jousun while falling will cause Sonic to take damage.

Sonic Jump 2

In Sonic Jump 2, which serves as a remaster of its prequel, the Jousuns appear as enemies in the same location and behave in the same way as in their previous appearance.

Powers and abilities

In addition to being capable of flight, Jousuns are equipped with a spear on their nose that can skewer foes.
