Crabaton is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is one of the Seven Badniks, powerful hybrid Badniks created by the Badnik Army Repair Functionaries.
Crabaton is a modified Badnik. It has a grey humanoid body with red crab-like claws, a single wheel for legs and a red helment with antennas.
Crabaton was created by B.A.R.F. in the Badnik Research and Development Facility by using remains from the Green Hill Zone Badniks that were destroyed by the Palmtree Panic Zone Badniks. Crabaton and the other Seven Badniks were then tasked with getting the Palmtree Panic Zone Badniks back to onto the Ark Pod and back to their home zone.
Crabaton was soon taken over to the Green Hill Zone where it assisted in intimidating the rogue Badniks back into the Ark Pod. Crabaton was then ordered to stay in the Green Hill Zone and guard it for Dr. Robotnik.
