Orb protected by spinning barbs.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Star[1] (スター[2] Sutā?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Advance 2. It is a mass-produced, star-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.



As its name suggests, the Star is shaped like a regular five-point star; it has a floating orange "body" protected by a shell composed of five pink triangles, which the star can open and close at will.


The Stars only appear in Techno Base. In gameplay, the Stars will hover in stationary position, waiting for the player to draw near; once they detect someone nearby, they will close themselves in their shells and spin in place, making them invulnerable to any attacks. The player must then wait for the enemies to stop spinning and open up from their shells in order to defeat them.
