Pincers are enemies that appear in every Shantae game.


Pincers are creatures with one yellow eye and (as their name indicates) a pair de pincers. In Shantae, said pincers are quite small compared to their bodies, but in Risky's Revenge this is reversed. In Half-Genie Hero, marks are added to their pincers and some of its parts are now pink.


They jump up from the gaps between platforms to try and pinch Shantae. They cannot be defeated in the first game, but in the second they can only be defeated by using an explosive cloud, which is a bit tricky to achieve.


Despite only the later games their eyes are yellow, This, however, was in a color of light blue. Despite being small, it is a stable of every shantae game ever to existed

Shantae: Risky's Revenge

The pincers are more larger and yet refined, adding a cobalt shade with a mixture of sky blue

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

The pincers hardly ever change other than Resizing it to make it look more defined. With the introduction of 3d steroscopic view, they appear to have a more pop-up effect

Shantae: Half Genie Hero

Their animation has given a significant update giving a more subtle bounce, but their Hp still remains as 1 hit knockouts.
