Shantae Wiki

Crabs are enemies that appear in every Shantae game.


Crabs are red with yellow eyes. They have a blue variant which is seen in Abandoned Factory. In Half-Genie Hero, they show an evil grin.


Crabs walk back and forth on their platform. They can be easily killed by crouching and whipping. In Pirate's Curse, they have 1 HP.
