Laser Flapper ( is an enemy that appears in the レーザーフラッパー  Rēzāfurappā ) ? . It is a mass-produced, Sonic the Hedgehog series Flapper-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.
The Laser Flappers look very similar to the
Flapper, possessing the round torso, black undercarriage, dome-shaped head, the airplane-like wings instead of arms, the two turbines on their backs, and the flight visors instead of eyes. However, unlike the typical Flapper, the Laser Flappers have a laser generator beneath their black undercarriage.
The Laser Flapper's coloration has varied over the course of the series. In
, they are mainly colored neon green with blue eyes, but in Sonic Heroes they are mainly blue with red eyes.
The Laser Flappers made their first appearance in
as enemies. They can be found in Sonic Heroes Power Plant, BINGO Highway, Rail Canyon and Hang Castle.
In gameplay, Laser Flappers have few
hit points and typically float in a fixed position in midair. As a part of their attack patterns, they constantly shoot a laser resembling a yellow electrical current down into the ground below them. Touching this laser will cause the playable character to take damage. As such, the Laser Flappers are typically positioned along passages that the player has to traverse.
Because they float in midair, the Laser Flappers typically float outside the reach of most of the player's attacks. The easiest way to destroy them is by using
Thunder Shoot to knock them out of the sky, leaving them open to any attack. If Thunder Shoot is leveled up to Level 2 however, then it may be enough to destroy a Laser Flapper in one shot. Also, upon their destruction, they grant the player 100 points.
, Laser Flappers only appear in Sonic Rush Dead Line. In gameplay, Laser Flappers either float in a fixed position or hover back and forth within a certain area that they patrol. When they spot the playable character, a speech bubbling with an exclamation point will appear above them. They will then immediately after fire a laser directly downward towards the ground, before flying further and repeating this attack pattern during a subsequent encounter with the playable character.
As long as they are within the player's reach, the player can easily destroy a Laser Flapper with a
Spin Jump/ Axel Jump. Also, upon their destruction, they release an Animal.
Powers and abilities
The Laser Flappers are all capable of flight using the jetpacks on their backs. They are also equipped with weaponry on their bottoms that let them fire lasers towards the ground.
