The Goose Mecha is a powerful, goose-like badnik that is fought as the boss of Sky High Zone in the 8 bit version of Sonic 2.


Before Sonic can fight the boss itself, he must fight two waves of mini bouncing bird badniks, at which point he drops through the clouds to smash the cybernetic eggs which create them. Spin rolling works well in this part of the boss fight, and do note that the eggs will still produce the bird badniks while Sonic is attacking them.

Only when its 'nest' has been destroyed does the boss rear its chrome-plated head (on an extremely extendable neck). It proceeds to fire energy balls in Sonic's direction, which possess a limited degree of homing. Six spin attacks will finish it off, and if Sonic is fast enough the Goose Mecha can be defeated without ever giving it a chance to attack.
