Rhinotank  ( is an enemy in the リノタンク  Rinotanku ) ? . It is a mass-produced, rhinoceros-based Sonic the Hedgehog series Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.
Rhinotanks are based on
rhinoceros, and possess turquoise and gray armor. They are bulky robots with motor engines on their backs, a pair of black tracks on each side, small ears and a yellow horn on their noses. Above each of their tracks are also grey frames with yellow and black hazard stripes.
, the Rhinotanks were slight modified. Here, they lack ears and back engines. They also have two horns on their heads instead of one, and they have only a single track that rises up horizontally from behind.
First appearing in
and Sonic Adventure , Rhinotanks are encountered in the following Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut Action Stages for each character:
In gameplay, Rhinotanks move around the terrain until they notice the player when they get nearby. They will then slowly start charging towards the player in a straight line. The player can easily dodge their attack and use the
Spin Jump, Homing Attack or gun fire to defeat them.
. Rhinotanks are encountered in the Sonic Advance Neo Green Hill Zone and Angel Island Zone. In this game, their attack patterns are similar to the RhinoBots' in . Usually rolling back and forth, they will start charging towards the playable characters when they get close. Using the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Spin Jump, Spin Attack, Spin Dash or melee moves will defeat a Rhinotank easily.
The Rhinotank made an appearance in

A Rhinotank charging at Sonic in the
Nintendo 3DS version of . Sonic Generations
Nintendo 3DS version of , Rhinotanks appear again as enemies in Sonic Generations Emerald Coast. In this game, they have their original design.
Much like in
, they either appear alone on in groups and will slowly move back and forth until they notice Sonic Adventure Sonic, upon where they will slowly charge towards him. A Rhinotank can only feel Sonic's presence if he is to close it though, and it usually loses sight of Sonic during a charge when the player dodges it using a Spin Jump. Hence, it is easy to attack a Rhinotank before it charges by using the Spin Jump or Homing Attack. Alternatively, the player can just dash through them with the Boost.
