"I could have been dead! I COULD HAVE DIED!"
—Claws Ward, to his assistant

Peter "Claws" Ward is a character in Monsters, Inc.

Monsters, Inc.

Claws is a blue crocodile-like monster with razor-sharp claws and horrifying breath. He is very good friends with Lanky Schmidt and George Sanderson.

Claws appears on the Scare Floor in Monsters, Inc. and the sushi restaurant. On the Scare Floor, he runs out of a door screaming because the child he was trying to scare almost touched him. He then proceeds to cry while his assistant calls in a door shredder, making that door the 58th lost in the week.

While watching Mike's company play "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me," he gets emotional during Mike's singing and starts crying, to which his assistant slaps him and says, "Keep it together, man!" (like how he did earlier in the film when Claws was crying because the kid got close to him).

Monsters University

Although Claws does not physically appear in Monsters University, his picture can be seen on a Scare Card during the credits. It is also revealed in Monsters University that he graduated from Fear Tech and formerly worked at Fear Co.
