Grabber

From Sonic Retro

Grabber.png

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 Left and Right alternately on the D-pad.

Grabbers return in Sonic Generations, again appearing in Chemical Plant Zone. In this appearance, they can now walk along and hold onto strings.

Grabbers also appear in Sonic Mania's Chemical Plant Zone, and act identically to their original appearance.
