The individual Woodrow is a woodpecker-based Badnik that is colored green with a purple body and magenta-colored feathers. It also has a gray piston-like beak with yellow clamp-like feet.
In Sonic Mania, and its expansion Sonic Mania Plus, the Woodrows appear in Press Garden Zone Act 2. In gameplay, they each occupy a tree, never moving from their position. When the player gets close, they use their beak to shake the tree they hang onto, which is holding multiple damage-inducing black bombs, until it drop its bombs on the player. It takes them a couple of seconds to loosen the bombs though, and the bombs will remain completely harmless until they fall off their tree.
A simple attack can defeat this Badnik, releasing an animal inside.
Powers and abilities
Woodrows possess piston-like beaks which are strong enough to shaken full-grown trees.
- There is a unused design for Woodrow in the files of Sonic Mania which has a more hammer-like shape along with a placeholder sprite.
