Jawz, or Jawzun (ジョーズン) in Japan, is a shark-shaped Badnik from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 found in Hydrocity Zone. These blue badniks are unexpected and act just like torpedoes; they are fast and they launch in one direction. If the player is hit by this robot, the animal trapped inside is killed. They can be easily destroyed by jumping.
It makes a second appearance in both versions of Sonic Colours where they are encountered in Aquarium Park. In the Wii version, they are larger and swim around in the underwater sections, and will charge towards Sonic in a straight line once he gets too close, while the smaller variations just follow Sonic. The Jawz in this version can be taken out with a Spin attack or the Yellow Drill. In the Nintendo DS version, only the blue variation of the Jawz appear. These Badniks usually swim around, but will start charging towards Sonic once he gets close. While they charge, only the Yellow Drill can take them out.
They reappear in Sonic Mania, again in Hydrocity Zone, with the attack pattern from Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
