The Persuader is a toy nutcracker used by Spike to interrogate his enemies.
Flushed Away filmEdit
Voice Actor: Michael Hordern (in a much higher voice)
When the henchrats were searching the Jammy Dodger for the ruby Rita had taken back from the Toad, Rita tried to blame the theft on a rat that had snuck onto her boat but only managed to irritate Spike to the point where he brought out the Persuader, causing everyone (excluding Rita) to tremble in fear. Using the art of ventriloquism, Spike was able to get Roddy to talk after Whitey held Rita upside down to prevent her from escaping which revealed the ruby was in Rita's back pocket. Congratulating Roddy for his cooperation, Spike threw aside the Persuader.
