UPDATE: Owner of The Spriters Resource website Dazz has confirmed that the sprites are from the game’s data.
I can tell you now, that sheet is in the data. It’s not fan sprited.
I run tSR, and Yawackhary who ripped those got them straight from the data like the other spriters have. It was a small project some of them worked on.
It could be just an unused enemy.
SSMB member MarcelloF was checking out Sonic Xtreme stuff on the Spriters Resource website and found a character called Chaz’s sprites there that were ripped from the game. If the character is an animal it has no obvious similarity to any species, it look’s like a cross between an armadillo and a badger if you ask me. The character looks more like an enemy since the only animation shown is walking and running.
We’ll try to get some confirmation from Chris Senn but until then we’ll treat this as rumour since there are alot of fan spriters out there on the interwebs.
