Other Scrapped Sonic 2 Enemies
From Sonic Retro
The following list contains other scrapped enemies which were to be featured in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Some of the badniks were taken from concept art found here:
- S2badnikconcepts - Squid, Lobster, Pterodactyl or Vulture, Dragonfly, Mole, Frog
- S2badnikconcepts 2 - Porcupine, Penguin
- S2badnikconcepts 5 - Stegosaurus, Triceratops, T-Rex
- S2badnikconcepts 6 - Pig, Octopus, Frog, Flying Badnik , Ground Badnik , Grasshopper, Another Flying Badnik
Though Dust Hill Zone was scrapped early in development, badniks were still designed for the level. Cactus is one of them - a badnik which would be either mobile or stationary and would flash green and red before exploding. The drawing of Sonic 1's Bomb badnik may mean the Cactus badnik behaved similarly to it. An armadillo is also present.
Mole is a badnik which appears to drill through walls to attack Sonic if he comes too close. This design may have led to the Grounder badnik.
A Penguin badnik with a spring on its nose which would attempt knock Sonic away. Sonic would be forced to roll on the ground to defeat it. The Crawl badnik behaves similarly.
This Octopus may have been an early version of the Octus badnik.
A strange Flying Thing which may have been an eagle or some type of dinosaur. It may have become the Balkiry enemy.
