Slicer, called Kamakiller (カマキラー) in the Japanese manual, is a Badnik from the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 found in Metropolis Zone. It is a praying mantis-like creature with two claws that it launches at you. The claws will home in on you for a couple of seconds, but when you destroy the creature itself the claws will stop following you and drop. They are usually positioned in awkward locations so that it is hard to get past them.
The Slicers reappear in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I's in Mad Gear Zone with a much more updated design, but retaining same function of previous games. This time, however, after throwing its claws at the player, it will flash red and then self-destruct.
Slicers also appear in both versions of Sonic Lost World with the same attack patterns from previous appearances, except that their claws will regenerate after being thrown. In the Wii U/PC version, they are first seen in Silent Forest Zone 2, with a single, craftily-placed one seen lurking at the mid-point of Lava Mountain Zone 3. In the Nintendo 3DS version, they are found in groups in Silent Forest Zone 2 and in Sky Road Zone 1 and 3.
