The Phoenix[1] is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a robot deployed by the Guardian Units of Nations in Sonic Adventure 2, and a part of the Hornet series.


It is nearly identical in appearance to a Hornet-3, but is colored differently and noticeably faster. It is red and gray in color, with red on the top of each of its arms. It has one yellow "eye", and emblazoned just above it are the GUN logo and the number 05. The bombs it fires are cone-like in shape, primarily colored red, and have red lights around the front edges.


The Phoenix usually patrols an area, but will stop to arm its three bomb pods and throw them at passing enemies. Upon destruction, it awards the player 100 points.

The Phoenix is only featured in one stage:

Character Stage
Normal mode Hard mode
Knuckles N/A Meteor Herd
