|This article is about the enemy from the original Spyro trilogy. You may be looking for the crabs in the Lost Cities realm in Spyro: A Hero's Tail.|
Giant Crabs are large red or blue crabs with two large eyes on their head. They will crawl up to Spyro and snap at him, and can be defeated easily with any attack. In skateboard levels, the crabs give Spyro speed energy when he skates into them. In Sparx levels, they take several hits to defeat. They appear in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! in the level Aquaria Towers and in Spyro: Year of the Dragon, in the levels Lost Fleet, Crawdad Farm, and the Super Bonus Round. The crabs in the Super Bonus Round are blue in colour.
- When not attacking, the crabs sometimes squeeze one of their eyeballs, making the other one big.
- In Spyro 2, they snap when Spyro gets too near. In Spyro 3, they snap repeatedly to hit Spyro.
