Henry is a mini boss in Borderlands 2 that must be defeated as part of the mission Best Mother's Day Ever. It is a large Spiked Stalker, named after Taggart's mother.

Henry is first mentioned by Taggart in ECHO recordings found in stalker piles, in which it was described as having watched Taggart's camp. Later on it attacked and killed the rest of camp's inhabitants. Eventually Taggart's hands were eaten, and in his final ECHO recording it is revealed Henry had also eaten Taggart.

Henry is killed by the Vault Hunters to obtain Taggart's hands and unlock the box containing his mother's day present.
