Spikes is a Badnik robot created by Dr. Eggman and an enemy in the first Sonic the Hedgehog video game. It resembles a hermit-crab and crawls along the ground on two wheels, jabbing at foes with its clawed forelegs. The spikes on top of its shell prevent Sonic from spin-jumping on it, so it can only be struck head on or from behind.

A new version of the Spikes Badnik appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. This version appears in the White Park Zone and moves on multi-jointed legs, slowly dragging its spiked shell behind it. Sonic cannot destroy it with normal attacks and must either work with Tails and crush the Spikes with a Rolling Combo attack or attack it in his Super Sonic form. It is also possible to defeat these Badniks by rolling giant snowballs over them.
