The Grabber is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a mass-produced, grasshopper-based Badnik model created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik.


Despite their name, Mantises do not look like mantises at all. Instead they resemble metallic grey grasshoppers with extra straight legs, no forelegs, red eyes, and no feet.


On a normal day in the life of Dr. Ivo Robotnik during the R.B.R era, some Mantises served Robotnik's breakfast before heading out to round up mobians (Porker Lewis included) and imprison them in the Scrap Brain Zone.[1]

Powers and abilities

The Mantises are capable of flight and are strong enough to carry at least one mobian each. They also come equipped with searchlights for scouting.[1]
