The Takkon[1] (タッコン[2]?) is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a mass-produced, octopus-based Badnik model created by Dr. Eggman.



The Takkons each resemble a red squid, possessing a round body with six short tentacles each. They also have a gray barrel-like mouth each, a pair of cartoonish black eyes, and a propeller on top of their bodies for flight.

Game appearances

Sonic Advance 3

In Sonic Advance 3, the Takkons appear as enemies in Ocean Base. In gameplay, they fly back and forth in the air. When the player approaches them however, they will attack by spitting ink directly downwards. A simple Spin Jump is all it takes to destroy a Takkon, although the player must take care not to be hit by the ink. Also, upon a Takkon's destruction, it will release a Ring.

Sonic Jump series

Sonic Jump

In Sonic Jump, the Takkons appear as enemies. In this game, they only appear in Mountain Zone. In gameplay, the Takkons only fly left and right. In order to destroy a Takkon, the player must jump into it from below; touching a Takkon while falling will cause Sonic to take damage.

Sonic Jump 2

In Sonic Jump 2, which serves as a remaster of its prequel, the Takkons appear as enemies in the same locations and behave in the same way as in their previous appearance.

Powers and abilities

Thanks to their propellers, the Takkons are capable of flight. They are also able to shoot bullets of black ink with lethal force.
