Snowy, or Bearer (ベアラ) in Japan, is a polar bear-like Badnik from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II found in White Park Zone.

Snowy is a very large and sturdy Badnik in comparison to other Badniks. When approached, Snowy will charge with its hands upright toward the player and attempt to strike with their large claws. Because of its bulky build, this Badnik takes three hits to destroy instead of one, but the player can destroy it more quickly with a Rolling Combo or Super Sonic. Despite its toughness, Snowy gives the usual 100 points when destroyed.


A newly developed Polar Bear type robot for cold regions. It's specialty is unleashing powerful attacks with its super heavy body. Its body is also tough, and this makes it a formidable enemy that will not be taken down with just a few attacks.
