Shredder is considered by some the best robot in OMF 2097, simply because it's got the craziest combos. Any time Shredder lands a headbutt, Flip Kick, or jumpkick, the opponent should die, which is why the player should always be fast to maximize the chances of landing one. Strategy is much the same as for Electra: charge in with a jumpkick, headbutt, or flip kick, then either start a huge combo or mixup attacks until the opponent fails to block, then start a Flip Kick mega-combo. The Flying Hands can be hit, but they're still a good keep-away move and set up Shredder's infinite combo against slower pilots. Fighting against a Shredder is a simple matter of defeating the Flip Kick and headbutts, then moving in.

The 2nd enhancement makes all headbutts faster. A connected headbutt leaves you in a normal jump situation. The Flip Kick counts as a Shadow move (i.e. invincible to projectiles on startup).
