* 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.

* ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' Aquaman aids the heroes in rescuing Batman in Stryker Island, by summoning an army of giant lobsters to distract the Regime. Being King of the Seas doesn't seems so lame now does it.

[[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.

* While ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' does have a literal [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=4703 Giant Crab]], it looks absolutely puny when compared to the [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=34927 Wormfang Crab]]. Yes, those are mountains it's stepping over. Suffice it to say that there are other giant crabs as well.
