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


The Snowmen resemble mobile snowmen with green hats, green scarfs, and snowball cannons embedded in their hats.


Snowmen are encountered exclusively in Diamond Dust Zone. In gameplay, they are one of their Zone's more dangerous opponents. They slide around on ice-covered floor sections, following unpredictable routes and periodically spewing out snowballs in a half-circle.

These Badniks can be destroyed with a tactically-placed Spin Dash or Spin Jump. Upon their destruction, they release their respective power source, a blue Flicky, which can be picked up by Sonic. Unlike other Flickies in the game however, these ones are frozen in blocks of ice, which can be quite convenient; it keeps the Flickies from wandering off the moment they set free.


  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.
