Dive-bomber that travels in trios.

— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Straw[1] (ストロー[2] Sutorō?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Advance 2. It is a mass-produced, bird-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.



Taking on the appearance of an hummingbird, Straw robots are colored green with a yellow beak. Their head is large and round, and their body is slightly smaller. Their body has holes for their wings, legs, and head, with silver lining around them. Their legs are long and thin, and their wings flutter through the air at an impossible counting rate, similar to actual hummingbirds.


Straws appear exclusively in Sky Canyon. They are hummingbird bots found in threes. They flutter through the air and dive-bomb approaching heroes.
