From Sonic Retro
Mosqui (モスキー / Masukī), also known as Kameka (カメカ) in Sonic Triple Trouble and Needlenose in the US Knuckles' Chaotix Manual, is a mosquito badnik created by Dr. Eggman. It is notable as being one of the few badnik designs which has appeared in more than one game; namely:
|MOSQUI / KAMEKA (Assorted)|
|Mosqui||Sonic CD||Palmtree Panic||Eggman robot: Badnik||Little Planet flowers||First appearance; 1993|
|Kameka||Sonic Triple Trouble||Sunset Park Zone||Eggman robot: Badnik||No obvious energy source||Only 8-bit appearence; 1994|
|Kameka||Chaotix||Speed Slider||Eggman robot: Badnik||Depleted rings||Also appeared in the opening sequence; 1995|
This little rascal of a badnik attempts to fly down at high speeds and puncture you. They are very easily dodged, and can be destroyed in the air - or when they're stuck in the ground after attempting to dive-bomb Sonic. When broken down due to age in the Sonic CD Bad Future, their flight speed and reaction time are slower, significantly reducing any threat they pose. Also in Sonic CD, if you go off the screen, it doesn't come back, even if you didn't destroy it (unlike all other undestroyed badniks), so be quick if you want those hundred points!
The robots use different power sources dependent on the game. All Sonic CD robots contain Little Planet flower seeds; some contain greyed-out rings in Chaotix, and there's apparently nothing inside in the 8-bit games like Triple Trouble.
The Robot Mosquito flies slowly through the air. When it sees an enemy it swoops to attack!
