Moto BugMedia:Sonic1 MD US SonicJam manual.pdf[1] (alternatively spelled Motobug[2]Media:SonicMania consoles EN manual.pdf[3] or Moto-Bug), called Motora (モトラMedia:Sonic1 MD JP manual.pdf[4]) in Japan, is a Badnik which debuted in the video game Sonic the Hedgehog. They are loosely based on ladybirds and are designed to simply move forwards along the ground, stopping and reversing should they hit a cliff or obstacle.

A Moto Bug is the very first enemy a player sees in Sonic the Hedgehog, and so, much like the Goomba of Super Mario Bros., has become an iconic enemy in the series. Moto Bugs are amongst the easiest enemies to destroy as they have no form of self defense - they are easy to outmaneuver, and can be taken out either by a jump or a roll.

Despite this, Moto Bugs are the most common cause of death for new players, as if he/she does nothing, or just holds Right, one will kill Sonic in the opening stage of the game.
