From Sonic Retro


Turtloid, referred to as Dawson (ドースン) in the Japanese manual, is a badnik from the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 found in Sky Chase Zone. These are pretty easy to get rid of; just jump on the little turtle. The badnik attacks by pulling a handle, causing the bigger turtle to fire a bullet from its mouth. Once the smaller turtle is destroyed, the larger turtle becomes a stationary platform.
