Fear Ripper (Japanese version Shredder (シュレッダー Shureddā)) is a humanoid Bakugan with large, extending claws.
Fear Ripper uses its sharp and big claws, which are triple the size of its head for cutting and slashing enemies. It is a chameleon, capable of changing into fire, earth, light, water, dark, or wind, but never reveals its true identity.
It is commonly used by evil characters, such as Tatsuya. Both Runo and Julio had Haos Fear Rippers but Runo's was sent to the Doom Dimension by Masquerade. Jenny had an Aquos Fear Ripper. A Subterra Fear Ripper is seen in the opening. Ryo owned a Darkus Fear Ripper, and so does Kosuke. A Pyrus Fear Ripper was seen in episode 8. A Ventus one is seen in a tin in Episode 5 along with some other Bakugan.
