A third-generation Badnik. Despite the name, Mantis Badniks don't look like manti at all. Instead they resemble grasshoppers or crickets. They can leap great heights and distances on their two long legs and have even shown flight capability in the pages of Sonic the Comic. They function better as scouts, seeing as they have no weapons or any real offensive capabilities.
Mantis Badniks were enemies from the Marble Garden Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
