Fast Facts on Weather Mobile

Game: Sonic Mania
Stage: Studiopolis Zone
Hits to defeat: 8

The Weather Mobile is the third major boss of Sonic Mania, fought at the end of Studiopolis Zone Act 2.

Defeat Strategy

The battle begins when the player enters a room containing a large TV screen. As the screen activates, displaying Egg TV's weather channel, Dr. Eggman flies in from above. Mushroom Hill's Cluckoid appears on the TV to forecast dangerous weather effects which then manifest within the room. There are three different weather effects:

  • Heat: Large headlamps drop down and blaze the room. Some heat is blocked by Robotnik, where he floats down, allowing you to attack. You can also completely ignore the heat if you have a Fire Shield.
  • Lightning: Three angry clouds show up and attempt to hit you with lightning.
  • Wind: This causes the player to fly towards the ceiling of spikes. There are poles at the far edges of the screen that they can grab onto to avoid taking damage.

Eight successful hits will destroy the Weather Mobile and send Egg TV off-air, after which the Capsule will appear and the player can complete the Zone. Afterwards, the station's technical difficulties resolve just in time for a report announcing the return of Eggman's Flying Battery. The player automatically exits the room and grabs hold of the ship, flying their way into the next Zone.
