Catakiller Jr. is a floating worm-like Badnik created by Dr. Eggman. It first appears in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and drifts through the air in the Angel Island Zone. It does not have as many spikes on its body segments as the original Caterkiller, but it does generate an energy field around its body which surges every second, shocking anyone that touches it.
Catakiller Jr. is a glowworm-based Badnik with seven spherical segments making up its body. Its front segment is the head and sports a pair of cartoonish eyes. The three segments following the head are equipped with anti-gravs that allow the robot to levitate and are also adorned with spiked rings that generate an electrical discharge.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
Catakiller Jr. is encountered in the Angel Island Zone. It can be found hovering from side to side in the air, periodically generating electricity that runs across the length of its body. The player will take damage if the electrical field is touched or even by touching the body. The robot can be destroyed by attacking its head.
Catakiller Jr's appear once again, this time in the Chemical Plant Zone. Their appearance and behaviour is the same as in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
