Spiky Spinner is an enemy found in the video game, Sonic Adventure. Spiky Spinners are robots modelled after sea urchins, they float around, surrounded by four spike balls. When approached they will either spin their spike balls in an increasing radius, or fire them directly at the player. Once a Spiky Spinner has lost its spike balls it is completely vulnerable to attack. Defeating it releases the small animal trapped inside.
