From Sonic Retro
Scouter is one of the first enemies encountered in Green Grove Zone, the first level of Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island. As with all enemies in Sonic 3D, it was not officially named by Sega - the moniker comes from Sonic 3D's development tools.
Resembling a purple-and-yellow wasp (although it doesn't fly), the badnik simply wanders around in an erratic motion, chasing Sonic if he is nearby. It can only harm Sonic by bumping directly into him; destroy it with a spin dash or jump to recover its organic battery power source, a Flicky, and make Flickies' Island a slightly less dangerous place.
