What badnik is Monkey Dude?
He’s the local Coconuts stand-in for Angel Island in S3&K.
By the way, you see his eyes?
You know what those eyes say to me?
This is why Robotnik will forever be a crueler man than any other. Black Doom may eat humans, Mephiles may want to destroy reality, but only Ivo Robotnik is callous enough, deranged enough, insidious enough to name one of his own creations Monkey Dude with no second thought.
That robot is set up to be bullied by anthropomorphic hedgehogs for life, and he knows it. Yet he does not care.
What a cruel world.
