Game: Sonic Lost World
Level: Frozen Factory
Hits to defeat: 3

Sonic's first encounter with Zeena is on a snow-covered planetoid at the end of Frozen Factory Zone 2. Due to the nature of the Zone, Sonic will be in snowball form during the battle, meaning the player must rely on the limited movement options available to beat Zeena.

Zeena will bury herself in the snow and summon large snowmen out of the ground, which will not actually attack Sonic, but they need to be destroyed before the player can attack Zeena. To do this, the player simply has to ram into the snowmen to destroy them. If they don't take out all the snowmen fast enough, they will sink back down and force the player to repeat the process. When all of the snowmen are destroyed, Zeena will pop out of the last one and begin running away, and at this point the player needs to Spin Dash into her to cause damage.

The battle will repeat the process two more times, with more snowmen popping up for the player to destroy. However, snowmen with bombs on their heads will start appearing. While not harmful, hitting such snowmen by mistake will cause all the snowmen to reset, wasting precious time. Once Zeena has been hit two more times, the battle ends, allowing Sonic to break free of the snowball and clear the Zone.

This battle is repeated in Nightmare Zone, with Zeena's snowmen being replaced by the second-level Nightmaren Clawz and his mouse fireworks. In this fight, Sonic is not in snowball form, and he must get rid of all of the mouse fireworks on the planetoid using the Homing Attack, then attack Clawz.

Second battle

Game: Sonic Lost World
Level: Frozen Factory
Hits to defeat: 6

The second battle with Zeena at the end of Frozen Factory Zone 4 is set on a planetoid that's completely covered in ice, making it harder for the player to get a foothold during the battle. Zeena chooses to fight Sonic directly, using a large snowman head like a mace and swinging it around wildly in an attempt to smash him. This attack starts out slow, but it will pick up speed and become harder to dodge. The player must also keep their distance as much as possible, as Zeena will slowly move towards Sonic while she is spinning.

Zeena is vulnerable to attack at all times during the fight, but it's recommended to get hits in before she spins too fast and make it harder to hit her. After three hits, Zeena will become furious and bring in a second snowman head to swing with the first, with electrical chains going around the whole planetoid. Touching these energy chains will hurt Sonic, but they can be jumped over. Hitting Zeena three more times will force her to retreat.

Final battle

Game: Sonic Lost World
Level: Lava Mountain

Zeena fights Sonic one last time at the end of the first tier of Lava Mountain Zone 3, with her fight taking place on a see-saw surrounded by a pool of lava. Her only attack is to jump across to the raised side of the see-saw and stomp it, catapulting Sonic into the spikes above. To avoid being catapulted, the player must jump right before she lands. Hit her with Homing Attacks a few times and she'll be felled, disappearing in a puff of smoke.
