Game: Sonic the Hedgehog CD
Affiliation: Eggman Empire

The Antlion is a badnik from Sonic CD's deleted R2 level. It is one of the three normal enemies known to belong to the R2 level, according to The Taxman.

The game's Ending video[1], included in the Sonic Jam Movie Theater and some rereleases of Sonic CD, features a ruins area with this enemy bursting out of the ground and attacking Sonic - an animated GIF of the scene can be found here. The sprites for the Antlion were provided by The Taxman several years later. When R2 was scrapped, the Antlion was considered for R8 (Metallic Madness) before being scrapped as well. Signs of this can be found in prototypes, which recreate the enemy's sand traps with sloped pits, spikes and trap doors [2]. These are still present in the final layouts, but the trap doors were removed. The R8 version of the sprite was slightly redrawn, with the highlight on it being smaller.
