* The Mirelurks in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' are super-mutated, bipedal crabs. It's worth noting that said Mirelurks have [[AttackItsWeakPoint a weak point that you can hit]] for massive damage. Mirelurk meat is also one of the better foods in the game, healing a large amount of health. Mirelurk cakes are a popular snack among wastelanders. Fortunately, they don't appear in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''... though their "relatives", the turtle-based Mirelurk Kings (renamed "Lakelurks") do!

* The Mirelurks in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' are super-mutated, bi-pedal crabs. It's worth noting that said Mirelurks have [[AttackItsWeakPoint a weak point that you can hit]] for massive damage. Mirelurk meat is also one of the better foods in the game, healing a large amount of health. Mirelurk cakes are a popular snack among wastelanders.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has the Mirelurk Queen. It's one of the largest enemies in the game and one of the most deadly, easily dwarfing the Deathclaw and Super Mutant Behemoth in size and power. One of them is even fought as a boss with many allies helping the player out, and it can take out said allies (and the player) in one or two shots.

** Mirelurks reappear in
''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has 4}}'', here redesigned to a more centaur-like body configuration, though still man-sized and grotesquely human-like crab-things. For their "relatives", the Mirelurk Queen. It's one of Hunters and Queens, as well as the largest enemies in Fog Crawlers and Hermit Crabs, see the game and one of the most deadly, easily dwarfing the Deathclaw and Super Mutant Behemoth in size and power. One of them is even fought as a boss with many allies helping the player out, and it can take out said allies (and the player) in one or two shots.Videogames folder under Other Crustaceans below.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has not only the crab-based Mirelurks, but several additions, some directly related to the family, others not so much.
** Mirelurk Hunters are man-sized lobsters that use projectiles of [[HollywoodAcid corrosive]] (and sometimes radioactive) spittle and their huge claws to rip and tear whatever they encounter.
** Resembling a semi-bipedal (in the same "tauric" fashion as the lesser Mirelurks) horseshoe crab, the Mirelurk Queen is one of the largest enemies in the game and one of the most deadly, easily dwarfing the Deathclaw and Super Mutant Behemoth in size and power. One of them is even fought as a boss with many allies helping the player out, and it can take out said allies (and the player) in one or two shots.
** Far Harbor features the Fog Crawlers, mantis shrimps that grow ''two stories tall'', with chitinous blades for arms that will rip you apart, and a hide thick enough to shrug off even a Gauss Rifle.
** Hermit Crabs are, as their name suggests, once-harmless softshelled crabs that have grown bigger since the nukes dropped. Now they're big enough that they hide out in ''trailers'', waiting for prey to wander by. And humans are just the right size to make a tasty snack...

* Some very popular ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanart and fancomics have Rarity fighting giant crabs, possibly due to the TropeNamer.

* There's a lot of crabs in various beaches in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', ranging from normal sized to big to a few giant ones. Notably, in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion there is a Giant ''Friendly'' Crab as a quest-giver. Considering Blizzard's tendency to include {{ShoutOut}}s and {{Pun}}s as {{Easter Egg}}s in their games, it's certainly possible this is a reference.

* ''[[{{VideoGame/Magicka2}} Magicka 2]]'' features crabs as enemies, first fittingly in a beach based level, then less so in a cave based one. The sizes range from mooks similar to the player character, through three times as big mini bosses, to the name-dropped Giant Enemy Crab which we only see a pincer of; it appears that the last one is roughly twice as big as mini boss variety.

[[TropeNamers According]] to Creator/{{Sony}}, Giant Enemy Crabs appeared in [[ArtisticLicenseHistory "famous battles that actually took place in ancient Japan"]]. When encountering one, you may AttackItsWeakPoint for massive damage, while using RealTimeWeaponChange.
