** King Crab from ''Series/UltramanAce'' doesn't actually look anything like a crab despite his name, but is able to transform into a horseshoe crab to hide from his enemies (though it must be noted horseshoe crabs are not crustaceans).
** Crabgan from ''Series/UltramanGaia'' was a symbiotic lifeform from the Cambrian period that returned in the present as a ghost seeking to reunite with its evolutionary partner Anemos.
** Ganza from ''Series/UltramanTaro'' was so giant that ZAT mistook him for an island when they encountered it sleeping. Fittingly, his name is derived from the Japanese word for crab, "gani".
** ''Series/UltramanLeo'''s Black Dome was one of the FlyingSaucer [[FlyingSeafoodSpecial Beasts]], appearing as a giant saucer-shaped fiddler crab able to spray acidic foam capable of turning a concrete building into mush in seconds.
** The original Ultra examples are Zanika and Yadokarin from ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'', the latter being a monster from a planet in the constellation of (where else?) Cancer that was devoured by a PlanetEater, while the former was a hermit crab with vaguely mammalian features that turned a crashed space station into its home.

* Chasmfiends in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' are basically this crossed with giant centipedes. Many animals on Roshar also have elements of crustaceans due to Highstorms affecting their evolution.


Added DiffLines:

So there are many creatures that could probably qualify for this trope, it's just that so far in series, The chasmfiends are the only really huge crustaceans to have been actively battled. We'll leave it at that, before things get too semantic.
