Various Little Planet flowers in the good ending of Sonic the Hedgehog CD.

The Little Planet flowers, also known as Miracle Planet Flowers, are a flora that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are a unique breed of flowers native to the Little Planet which serve as the power source for Dr. Robotnik's Badniks in Sonic the Hedgehog CD, replacing the Animals.


The Little Planet Flowers are usually plants that bear some resemblance to the flora in locations such as Green Hill Zone. They appear to be spawn from the energy of the Little Planet itself and seemingly possess unique properties that allows them to be converted into orbs of light and to be used to power Badniks. Once these energy orbs touch the ground, they will instantly bloom into full-grown flowers. Each Zone on the Little Planet has its own unique and exclusive breed of Little Planet flowers.

Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog CD

Little Planet flowers at the good future of Collision Chaos.

The Little Planet flowers made their first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog CD as the power sources for Dr. Eggman's Badnik army. Whenever Sonic defeats a Badnik, the flower contained within the Badnik is released in its orb form, for then to fall down vertically where the Badnik was defeated and instantly bloom when it reaches the ground. After defeating the boss in the third Acts of each of the zones (except for Stardust Speedway and Metallic Madness), Capsules containing Little Planet flowers must be destroyed in order to clear the Act. Doing so will release the Little Planet flowers within them and cause them to bloom as well.

Sonic Mania

In Sonic Mania, and its expansion Sonic Mania Plus, Little Planet flowers are present in Stardust Speedway. They can be found inside the same capsules that are seen at the end of each Round in Sonic the Hedgehog CD but are spread across the level further. Breaking open the capsule will drop five Little Planet flowers on the ground then cause a large Beanstalk to emerge from the ground, the leaves of which can be used as platforms to reach new areas.

  • Similar flowers appeared in the Bonus Stages of Sonic Advance 3, where the player has to destroy all Badniks in the arena. Similar to the flowers in Sonic the Hedgehog CD, destroying one of these Badniks will release a flower that will instantly sprout once it touches the ground. These flowers, however, are released in seed form and resemble normal flowers.
  • The Little Planet flowers make a cameo appearance in LEGO Dimensions during a side mission that involves disabling robot generators. They sprout up out of the ground after a teleporter has been destroyed, as they did in Sonic the Hedgehog CD.
