Grabber (グラバー) is a spider-like badnik from the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 found in Chemical Plant Zone. When Sonic stands directly underneath them they'll drop down, pick him up and blow up causing damage to him. It is best to attack them from the side rather from down below, because Sonic and the heros may risk being captured by them. If it auto destructs, the animal inside is killed. It is possible to escape from a Grabber's clutches by pressing and alternately on the D-pad. In Sonic Genarations Grabbers can now walk and hold onto strings. Grabbers are ment to resemble spiders.
Grabbers only appear in one episode, The Robots Robot where they are the henchmen of Dr. Robotnik They do not grab Sonic they just try to run after him. They are defeated when Sonic uses a Spin Dash to send them into some water. After that, they are never seen again. They are called Burrobots not Grabbers.
Grabbers only appear in the Sonic Underground episode The Price of Freedom where there were used to spy on the Freedom Fighters. It is unknown who built them it cound have been Agent N, Dr. Robotnik, Sleet or Dingo.
