Ball Hog

From Sonic Retro


The Ball Hog, called Ton-ton (トントン) in the Japanese Manual, is a pig-like badnik found in Scrap Brain Zone (both the 8-bit and 16-bit versions) that hops on the spot and throws balls which bounce downhill. They can be easily destroyed by jumping. "Ton" is a prefix used to identify several Japanese pork dishes.

As is often the case with the early 2D Sonic enemies, similar but differently-named badniks to this model appeared in other games:
