Spatter, known as Sanrin San-Chan (三輪サンちゃん) in Japan, is a 1984 arcade game developed by Sega for Sega System 1 arcade hardware. It has never seen a home console release.

Sanrin Sanchan is said to have been the main inspiration for the Chao in Sonic Adventure.


The object of the game is to collect all the flowers within a maze without hitting other enemies. To achieve this, the player controls "Sanrin Sanchan", a child on a tricycle, who can navigate the maze. Many parts of the maze are separated by fences, which can be used by Sanrin in order to defeat enemies. Jumping over enemies and pushing blocks into them are also options. Occasionally there is a two-dimensional bonus stage where the player must reach the top of the screen in the shortest possible time. Though the gameplay is wildly different, the structure of Splatter is very similar to Flicky.
