Hedgehog (ヘッジホッグ) is a First Stage obstacle that was introduced in SASUKE 29 as the third obstacle. It was a replica of Rolling Saboten from a tournament called DOORS, which last aired in 2009 and featured Inui Masato as its Director.
Competitor must cross a four-metre-long rotating log that had several large pillars to slow down movement. Due to safety reasons, competitors were not allowed to grab the pillars. If they did so, the log would stop spinning, indicating that the competitors had failed the obstacle.
