Splats is a badnik from Sonic the Hedgehog which was cut from the final game. Despite not appearing in the game, the badnik appeared in a set of promotional trading cards for the game, was shown on the box of a series of Japanese Sonic figures, was featured in the UK-based Sonic the Comic and US based Archie Sonic the Hedgehog. When Nemesis Format was finally cracked in 2002, the sprites were discovered in the US/European Sonic the Hedgehog ROM. There is no programming or sprite mappings for the object.
Splats is depicted in secondary sources (merchandise etc.) as being grey with blue highlights. The sprite however, is blue with orange highlights when using Sonic's palette line. It could also use the second palette line, which varies from level to level either purple or green.
Splats, seen in Sonic the Comic #42.
