Tunnelbot
Game: Sonic the Hedgehog 3
Level: Marble Garden (mini-boss)
Hits to defeat: 6

Tunnelbot, called Gakin (ガキーン) in the Japanese strategy guide, is a sub-boss in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 which you confront at the end of Marble Garden Zone Act 1. It is one of the easiest sub-bosses in the game, made easier by a shield, which resists the falling stalactites. Just like Sonic 2's Drill Eggman II, this boss burrows through the ceiling and back. Hit it whenever you can. With Knuckles, there is a rotating spiked platform that you can stand on to compensate for Knuckles' lower jump height.

Trivia

Try and incorporate this information into the main article. See the manual of style to find out why.

When playing as Sonic & Tails, Sonic can stay at the very left of the boss arena while the second player defeats the boss using Tails. If Sonic is outside of the Act 2 level boundary when Act 2 starts, Sonic 3 alone will crash. Sonic 3 & Knuckles fixes this by forcing the camera, and Sonic with it, to scroll into the overlap between the Acts.
