Clawbeast is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a lion-like alien monster from Planet Romanus which was used by Emperor Zero in gladiator battles against his slaves.
Clawbeast is a beast that has many of the same characteristics as the typical lion, except for his red eyes, four arms and humanoid body.
After Tekno the Canary had supposedly killed Amy Rose, Emperor Zero went back on his word to free his slaves and set the Clawbeast loose on Tekno. As the Clawbeast swiped away Tekno's teleporter gun, local law enforcement entered Zero's city, giving Tekno the distraction she needed to grab her gun and teleport the Clawbeast up to Zero's seat, who escaped it without harm.
