Shredders are aerial creatures found in Torvus Bog on Aether. They attack by exploding when they reach their targets. Weapons fire will merely cause them to fill with energy, but Samus can exploit this by concentrating her weapons fire until they explode. A relative of the Shredder, known as the Shrieker, is also found in Torvus Bog.
- "The Shredder spends most of its life in the earth. When agitated, it will spring from the ground, then begin to fly toward its foe. Should it reach its target, the Shredder will explode with considerable force, releasing a cloud of thorns as it does. Shredders are resilient, but can be eliminated with concentrated weapons fire." — Logbook "Shredder" (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
