Crabs commonly appear in the Mini Games around the island.

Aqua Grabber[edit]

In Aqua Grabber's Soda Seas levels, there is a secret worm that can be obtained. It can be used to capture a Fluffy to catch a Mullet. Behind the Mullet is a secret path that leads to a pile of coins and a crab trying to get all the treasure. You can choose to either let the crab take all the coins for itself, or take the treasure. If you let the crab take the coins, it will reward you with an Emerald.

Starting on the fourth stage of Ice Fishing, crabs crawl on the underside of the ice, towards the fishing line and try to cut the line off, so that you lose your bait.

  • Klutzy is different from the other crabs. His claws are smaller and he seems to be smaller too.
