When the Wing Fortress was reintroduced as part of the New Robotnik Empire, Cluckers were once again used to guard the ship. This time, Sonic took the time to smash any models he found. In doing so, Tails discovered the wreckage and realised that it was an old model, suggesting that things were going too well.
Cluckers are based on the Badniks of the same name from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
