Appearances in Video Games
The Shrew appears as an enemy in the grassland levels of Buster's Hidden Treasure for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, riding its ball. If it sees Buster, it will move slowly towards him. After Buster jumps on it, its ball will speed up and roll away in one direction until it hits a wall and moves in the opposite direction. The ball can knock away any enemies in its path, and will also hit Buster if he's not careful.
