The Mosasaurus (モササウルス) is the first mini-boss of Sonic Superstars, encountered at the end of Bridge Island Zone Act 1. It is a giant Badnik based on the extinct aquatic species of the same name.
The Mosasaurus spends most of the Act splashing about in the ocean background at specific points, and typically does not interact with the player(s) until they reach the end of the Act, at which point it will start giving chase. First, it will start destroying the stone structures in the background, then will swim directly behind the player(s), causing the terrain behind them to start collapsing.
The Mosasaurus will then leap high into the air and come crashing down in front of the player(s). The player(s) should jump quickly to avoid falling into the water and dying. Afterwards, the Mosasaurus will continue to chase from behind and attempt to eat the player(s), only to crash into the wall, destroying it and releasing a giant Pecky.
In Trip's Story, the Mosasaurus chases Trip in exactly the same way as it did in Story Mode, however there are now several Badniks that serve as obstacles in addition to extra pits that Trip must jump over.
