Search Flapper ( is an enemy that appears in the サーチフラッパー  Sāchifurappā ) ? . It is a mass-produced, Sonic the Hedgehog series Flapper-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.
The Search Flappers look very similar to the
Flapper, possessing the round torso, black undercarriage, dome-shaped head, the airplane-like wings instead of arms, the two turbines on their backs, and the flight visors instead of eyes. However, unlike the typical Flapper, the Search Flappers are yellow instead of orange-red with red joints, and they each have a yellow searchlight attached to their black undercarriages.
A Search Flapper
The Search Flappers made their first appearance in
as enemies. In this game, they can be found in Sonic Heroes BINGO Highway and Hang Castle.
In gameplay, Search Flappers have few
hit points and float around in midair, where they either levitate in a fixed position or move back and forth within a certain area. When they spot the playable characters, a speech balloon containing an exclamation point will appear above the Search Flappers. Immediately after, they will teleport several Egg Pawns into the same areas as themselves in order to have them combat the player. However, they can only do this once. Apart from that, they possess no offensive capabilities.
Because they float in midair, the Search Flappers typically float outside the reach of most of the player's attacks. The easiest way to destroy them is by using
Thunder Shoot to knock them out of the sky, leaving them open to any attack. If Thunder Shoot is leveled up to at least Level 2 however, then it may be enough to destroy a Search Flapper in one shot. Also, upon their destruction, they grant the player 200 points.
Powers and abilities
The Search Flappers are all capable of flight using the jetpacks on their backs. They also possess the unique ability to call
Egg Pawns to their location by having them teleported there.
