|Hits to defeat: 8|
The Weather Mobile is Studiopolis Zone's boss for Act 2 in Sonic Mania. The battle sees the player walk into a room with a large TV. Just as they turn on the weather channel, Robotnik flies in from above. Mushroom Hill's Cluckoid comes up on the TV to cast dangerous weather effects in the room. They are as follows:
- 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 hits should see the fat scientist fleeing from the room as EggTV goes off the air. However, it's quickly resolved just in time to report the Flying Battery making its return. They run out the room and grabs a hold of the ship, flying into the next zone.
