The Freedom Fighters fighting an Orbinaut, from Sonic Super Digest Special Edition #9.

During Dr. Eggman's early rule over Mobotropolis, a number of Orbinaut would engage the newly formed Freedom Fighters with little success as the heroes fought to reclaim their city.[1][2]

Powers and abilities

The Orbinauts are capable of levitation, though their main abilities lie in their spiked balls which they can hold in orbit around them. They act both as weapons and a shield, and can be launched at their foes.
