Resembling cones, the Spikebonkers have an orange top cap with a black cylinder section below. Placed below their orange cap on their black underside are also two glaring eyes. On their bottom, they have a grey drill as well. They also carry an engine pack on their back and have a mace ball orbiting their lower section.
Spikebonkers appear only in Death Egg Zone, where they hover slowly from side-to-side with their mace orbiting them. When Sonic or Tails approaches, the Spikebonkers attack by sending their mace flying towards them. However, the mace has a limited range and will return to its Spikebonker like a boomerang. The Spikebonkers will repeat this pattern until they are destroyed or the player gets far enough away.
With the right timing, the player can defeat a Spikebonker with a Spin Jump. However, the player has to take notice of their mace's movements while attacking, as it can easily harm the player upon its return trip.
