''Claw'' (also known as ''Captain Claw'') is a 1997 PC {{platformer}} and [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove overlooked]] CultClassic. It tells the story of a certain cat pirate captain, named (can you guess it?) Nathaniel J. Claw and his quest to [[GottaCatchThemAll find the]] [[DismantledMacGuffin parts of the Amulet of Nine Lives]]. While the [[ExcusePlot plot was mostly an excuse]], the story gets interesting due to how interesting its characters are. Particularly Claw, whose [[DeadpanSnarker snarky comments makes pretty obvious]] [[{{Badass}} who you are dealing with]].

* {{Badass}}: Most of the cast.
** Claw exemplifies his badassery by escaping his imprisonment and single-handedly beating countless enemies.
** Hell, Tiger Guards can block a Dynamite explosion with ''a dagger''. If that's not badass, TV Tropes don't know what is.

* ParryingBullets: How Hook Monkey manages to block a pistol shot with a small dagger is a mystery, ditto with Tiger Guards. Applies to all bosses as well. There's also Gabriel who will block ''everything'' with ''his arm'' ([[GoodBadBugs sans grabs]]), calmly reminding you that this is not how you beat him.

* TooAwesomeToUse: Magic Claw one-shots everything in the game but bosses, including [[DemonicSpiders Tiger Guards]], but the resources found are so scarce that you'll use it very rarely (unless you're conserving it for this last level...)

The game was generally well received, being notable for its gorgeous looking graphics, great atmosphere and fun game play. Some even compared it to other great titles like ''MarioBros'' or ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot''. It had quite a few hand-drawn [[{{Cutscene}} cutscenes]] (about 18 minutes in total), giving it a movie-esque feeling. It's also worth noticing that it's [[NintendoHard HARD AS HELL]].

** If Catherine failed to deliver the message, Wolvington won't. He'll straight up counter attacks when hit and block even more often then the last boss being able to rack up large amounts of damage very quick against reckless players.

* CaptainObvious: The mermale creatures like to point out that they are dying/dead with "I seem to be deceased" or "Well, I'm no longer among the living, am I?"

** The "CatNip" power-up makes Claw run faster and jump higher, which is invaluable for collecting some trickier treasures. You can also use it to basically avoid a fight with Gabriel at the cost of precious points.

* HarderThanHard: Some custom levels will make you scream in endless frustration as you try to struggle between everything the creator can throw at you. [[ThatOneLevel The Temple]] doesn't even begin to describe the horror.
