The Robot Butterfly (パタバタ,Patabata?, lit. “Pata-Bata”), is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, butterfly-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman. Robot Butterflies are seen flying around in many places without having any significant attacks.
The Robot Butterflies are based on butterflies. They have pink metallic body with wide eyes, yellow feelers and proboscis. As seen in Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic Runners Adventure, they had round yellow wings, which are either clear or have holes on them in certain cases.
In gameplay, Robot Butterflies fly around in a zigzag pattern, so be careful not to hit them on the way up from a Spring, when the playable character is vulnerable.
Robot Butterflies are seen broken down due to age in the Bad Future of Palmtree Panic or sometimes in the present. Damage to them in their degraded state include holes in their wings which causes them to fly slower. Regardless, they can be defeated by a single Spin Jump. Also, like every Badnik in the game, they are powered by Little Planet flower seeds which will pop out of them when they are defeated.
Sonic Lost World
In the Wii U version and PCversion of Sonic Lost World, the Robot Butterflies can be found in Desert Ruins Zone 2. At certain points in the Zone, during which Sonicskydives, he must avoid multiple groups of six of these butterfly Badniks flying in circles. These Badniks however, are redesigned with blue wings and orange highlights, two holes in each wing, and a silver metallic body with a visible abdomen. Because Sonic is skydiving, he is unable to attack and therefore must avoid these Badniks instead of destroying them.
