The Scouter[note 1] is an enemy that appears in Sonic 3D Blast. It is a mass-produced, wasp-based Badnik created by Dr. Robotnik.


The Scouter resembles a purple-and-yellow wasp (although it does not fly).


Scouters are encountered exclusively in Green Grove Zone. In gameplay, they simply wander around in erratic motions, chasing Sonic if he is nearby. They can only harm Sonic by bumping directly into him.

These Badniks can easily be destroyed with a Spin Attack, Spin Dash or Spin Jump. Upon their destruction, they release their respective power source, a purple Flicky, which can be picked up by Sonic.


  1. This Badnik was given no official name upon or after the release of Sonic 3D Blast. However, its name was revealed in the Debug Mode for the unofficial Sonic 3D Blast: Director's Cut video game developed by Jon Burton, the lead programmer of the Genesis version of Sonic 3D Blast. When asked about its validity, Burton confirmed that this Badnik's name was used in the original game.
