- This page deals with the Badnik model. For the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog character, see Coconuts (AoStH). For the Super Monkey Ball character, see AiAi.
Coconuts, called Aiai (アイアイ) in the Japanese manual, is a monkey-like Badnik from the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 found in Emerald Hill Zone. Coconuts launch coconuts (hence where they get their name from) at Sonic when he gets nearby, so when you jump towards them, they'll fire at you! Try passing under them so when they launch a coconut, they have to pause before reloading and then you can take them out.
The enemy reappeared in Sonic Blast's Green Hill Zone and Sonic Pocket Adventure's Neo South Island Zone. In both of these appearances, they have the same attack pattern as in Sonic 2.
In the Wii U/PC version of Sonic Lost World, Coconuts can be found in Tropical Coast Zone 4. This time, their coconuts will explode when thrown, but the player can kick them back at them to avoid damage, while knocking them down.
Like many Badniks, Dr. Eggman has made many monkey-type Badniks that have similar appearances and attack patterns in later games. These are all the known variants:
