Early use

Caterkiller owned

The Freedom Fighters fighting a Caterkiller, from Sonic Super Digest Special Edition #9.

During Dr. Eggman's early rule over Mobotropolis, a number of Caterkillers would engage the newly formed Freedom Fighters with little success as the heroes fought to reclaim their city.[1] Eggman would also sell his outdated Caterkillers to his former lackey Breezie the Hedgehog, who made them serve Breeze Media.[2]

Shattered World Crisis

Note: From the reader's point of view, this picks up from where the Caterkillers' original timeline ended.

Over time, a number of scrapped Caterkillers were left behind in a deserted Eggman junkyard which Zavok, Zeena and Zor reanimated with their magnetic powers and used to defeat Sonic the Hedgehog during their visit there.[3] These events were later prevented from ever happening thanks to a time traveling Xander Payne.[4]

Caterkillers would also be used in the Soumerca Egg Army's employ.[5]

Powers and abilities

The classic Caterkiller is distinguished by its ability to detach its numerous spiked segments from each other with ease.[1]
