Concept and creation

Jimmy the Moto Bug

Jimmy the Moto Bug is a tribute to Sonic Retro community member Polygon Jim, who passed away in a car accident in 2013. He was famous for creating Motobug the Badnik in Sonic 1. The Moto Bug in the original ROM hack could jump by extending its wheel, which Jimmy would use for the boss fight in Sonic Mania

Sonic the Hedgehog (IDW comics)

Heavy Rider traveled with Heavy King and Heavy Shinobi to hunt down Sonic on Dr. Eggman's birthday. As soon as Robotnik found out they left totally unprepared for battle with Sonic he flew over there to tell all the Badniks to go home. Back at the base, the doctor scolded all of them for leaving without his orders. Heavy Rider tried to explain that they all only wanted to do something nice for Eggman's birthday. She told him that he deserves nice things. The doctor didn't know how to respond.[3]
