Buggernaut 99

Three Buggernauts amidst a swarm of other Badniks in Sonic the Comic

Buggernauts are swarming insectoid Badniks that appear in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Like the Whisps, they fly in groups, though one larger Buggernaut will usually lead two smaller ones. They have no weapons and are little more than a nuisance. If the leader of a swarm is destroyed, the smaller ones will flee.
