Inobuta Mecha (イノブタメカ)Media:Sonic 2 GG JP Manual.pdf[1] is the boss of Gimmick Mt. Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. "Inobuta" is Japanese word for a pig-wild boar hybrid, which has no direct English equivalent.


This metal-spiked kill-hog crashes from one end of the screen to another, dislodging heavy rocks from the ceiling when it impacts. These are deadly in and of themselves, never mind the crazed robot running around beneath them; however, the prickly pig badnik hits the side of the screen so hard that the machine stuns itself when it collides with the side of the arena, retracting its spikes and giving Sonic a short window of opportunity to do some damage. Curiously, if Sonic hits the boar fast enough when it is stunned, no rocks will be dislodged from the ceiling.
