Game: Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit)
Level: Labyrinth Zone
Hits to defeat: 8

The Labyrinth Zone boss is the fourth boss encounter with Dr. Eggman in Sonic the Hedgehog.


Uniquely to this Zone, Sonic the Hedgehog needs not to attack Eggman to defeat him, and can simply chase him to the end of the Act as he escapes in an unarmed Egg Mobile, through an obstacle course with water rising from below. However, it is possible to defeat him for 1,000 points; as in all other battles in the game, this requires Sonic to Spin Attack the Egg Mobile 8 times.

Contributing to the boss' challenge is that there are no air bubbles to be found on the way up, and if the water catches up to the player, it can be difficult to reach dry ground in time.

This boss returns in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I.
