The flowers of the Miracle Planet are what Doctor Robotnik uses to power his badniks in Sonic CD. The "organic batteries" used for badniks are in all other cases Sonic's small animal friends, but for whatever reason in CD Ivo instead fit glittering plant seeds inside his robots, as well as maintaining a centralised robotizer in the Past versions of zones.
Occasionally in the Present and throughout the Bad Future zones, badniks powered by Miracle Planet seeds seem to degrade in a fashion not observed in other games, which might suggest that flora are not quite as good energy sources as fauna.
Unlike animal captives, of which typically several varieties would be found in each zone, Miracle Planet flowers are found inside badniks exclusively in their 'home' zone. For example, in Collision Chaos they all have yellow petals and black buds, as pictured, whereas in Metallic Madness they have beige petals and orange buds.
