, the Sonic the Hedgehog CD Windows 95 version, and the 2011 remaster, the Metal Sonic holograms were set by Dr. Robotnik on Little Planet to scare the Animals away.

Palmtree Panic Zone 1, from the 2011 remaster of . Sonic the Hedgehog CD
In gameplay, Metal Sonic holograms can be found in the past of the first two Zones of every Round apart from
Metallic Madness. Unlike robot transporters though, these projectors do not have a broken down counterpart in the present to hint their location in the past time frame. They can be destroyed when the player attacks them with a Spin Attack-related move. When done so, various Animals will begin to freely wonder around in the past and the present. However, in the bad future, they will be nowhere to be seen, and in the good future, they will be present even if the player did not destroy the local Metal Sonic hologram.
Like with robot transporters, destroying Metal Sonic holograms is an optional task and is not required to advance in the game. Unlike robot transporters however, destroying these projectors do not grant the player any
points and do not affect the future. Nevertheless, destroying both Metal Sonic holograms and robot transporters will unlock the achievement "Savior of the Planet" in the 2011 remaster of Sonic the Hedgehog CD.
