In Sonic Adventure 2, the Rhino Spike usually patrols an area, but will rev up and ram toward the player should they approach. It can only be destroyed by a Somersault or Light Speed Attack from Sonic and Shadow, but a simple Punch or Kick will do for Knuckles or Rouge, respectively. Upon its destruction, it awards the player 100 points.
The Rhino Spike appears in the following stages:
|Normal mode||Hard mode|
|Knuckles||Aquatic Mine||Wild Canyon|

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics, the Rhino Spike appeared as a robot utilized by the Guardian Units of the Nation in their war against the Eggman Empire's forces.
