The Controla-Crawly is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a small green alien lifeform used by the Insectra Empire to turn people into slaves.


When attached to the chest plate of Shortfuse the Cybernik, it made Shortfuse evil and completely loyal to the Grand Emperor of the Insectra Empire, Dark Visor. Tekno the Canary attempted to remove the creature but was unable to. Luckily, when some Insectra soldiers fired at her with their lasers, they hit the Controla-Crawly by accident, detaching it and setting Shortfuse free. The Controla-Crawly then ran away on its suction cups.[1]
