The Circus was a monkey-based badnik that was created by Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik.



After Sonic the Hedgehog managed to defeat Dr. Eggman in their previous encounter, the doctor disappeared. However, his robot forces remained and continued to attack without a leader. (StH: #1) After Dr. Eggman recovered his memories, all the badniks, including the Cricuses, came under his control again.
