Orbinaut is a recurring enemy robot (Badnik) in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Modelled after sea urchins, Orbinauts have spherical bodies surrounded by four rotating spike balls.

There are three varieties of Orbinaut, each of which has its own name in the Japanese releases. The first type, named Uni Uni (ウニウニ) in Japan, is always surrounded by its spike balls. The second type, named Unidus (ウニダス) in Japan, fires its spike balls when approached. The third type, named Pola (ポーラ) in Japan, is similar to Uni Uni, but moves and spins its spike balls in short bursts and changes direction to follow the player.

In English language releases the Unidus variety has gone by four names: Orbinaut, Spiky Spinner, Unidus and Spike Spinner.
