Jawz (, renamed ジョーズ Jōzu ) ? Jawzun ( in Japan, is a ジョーズン Jōzun ) ? Badnik model that appears in Hydrocity Zone in . It makes a returning appearance in both versions of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 in the Sonic Colors, Aquarium Park stage. It resembles a shark.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Jawz are usually found in groups. They relentlessly swim in a straight line, but make no effort to attack the player. Nevertheless, they can be dangerous if the player only notices them at the last second. Jawz behaves the same way in Sonic Colors.
The name of this Badnik is an obvious parody of the shark movie, Jaws.
Jawz' method of attack is similar to Balkiry's, except it may come from both sides of the screen and blows up upon its deadly touch. In fact, if this Badnik does explode, then its animal will not be saved, similar to Grabber.
In , they are called Sonic Jam Jaws, which is the name of another badnik. This is considered a mistake.
In , there is a Sonic Labyrinth Badnik named Octoto which is similar to Jawz.
The character Johnny shares some similarities with this Badnik, as both of them have shark and missile qualities (with Jawz being a torpedo and Johnny being more of a rocket).
