These are shield-wielding variants of the Egg Fighters, who attack by approaching Sonic if they spot him and throwing punches with their free arm. Their shields will block Sonic's Homing Attack and reduce damage taken from the Werehog's moves, but if attacked with strong combo attacks or a Critical Attack, the shields will be lost, reducing them to regular Egg Fighters.
There are two other variants of this enemy that carry different shield types. One of which is electrified to give it offensive use, and one which is outfitted with a spring to repel Sonic.
