- This article is about the robot that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. For the robot based on Shredder that appears in the Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog comic series, see Shredbot.
The Shredder came equipped with giant buzz-saws, enormous tentacles, and a laser capable of absorbing life force energy from living tissue and converting it into power.
When the Shredder attacked the Great Forest, Sonic defeated it in his first encounter by tricking it into entangling its legs in its own tentacles. It was later repaired and sent against the Great Forest again, only to be destroyed by another of Robotnik's creations.
