A picture of Crawl taken from the cover of Sonic the Comic Issue 11

Crawl Badniks are painstakingly slow. They patrol the floors of the Casino Night Zone in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 keeping watch for intruders. Their only weapon is a large pincer claw on their left arm. If Sonic attacks a Crawl, it will immediately raise its bumper shield to protect itself and repel Sonic. Though it walks slowly, Crawl's reaction time is impeccable and cannot be attacked from the front, only from behind.
