This Badnik is an enhanced model of the Roller Badnik from Sonic the Hedgehog, painted red with a yellow V instead of blue with a red V. Like the original model, this Badnik will curl itself into a ball and roll in order to attack the player. Unlike the original, this Badnik will actively pursue the player rather than roll forward continuously, turning around if the player goes past them. In order to defeat this Badnik, the player must use a Spin Attack to bounce into it and make it uncurl, then quickly destroy it with any attack before it curls up again.
