These Badniks use the same concept as the Turtloids from Sky Chase Zone, but are instead based on armadillos to fit the western desert theme of the Zone and are burgundy in colour. Like with the original Badnik, the smaller Armadiloid will commandeer the larger Armadiloid to attack the player by firing bullets, but it can easily be dispatched by the player. Once the tiny Armadiloid is taken care of, the bigger Armadiloid will simply function as a platform.
At the end of Sonic/Tails/Mighty/Ray's Act 1, what appears to be either Fang the Sniper, Bark the Polar Bear or Bean the Dynamite will be riding an Armadiloid to shoot down the Tornado. Notably, Bark will achieve this by hammering the Armadiloid to make it fire a bullet.
