Flying, fire-flailing jellyfish bot.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Kura-Kura[1] (クラクラ[2] Kurakura?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Advance 2. It is a model of Badniks created by Dr. Eggman and appears in Hot Crater.



The Kura-Kura resembles a jellyfish and poses no real danger, but they can damage the player if the player touches the flaming ball that it swings below itself. They usually are stationed at places above ramps or springs, so that if the player goes high enough, they could hit one of these robots, lose their Rings, and fall to the bottom of the stage.


  • A similar robot named Kuraa was found in Sonic Advance.
    • Both robots' names come from "kurage", Japanese for jellyfish.
