Crabs, the smaller, water-loving monster of Vana'diel, is a commonly seen creature, and many adventurers become very familiar with their image quite quickly. Although crabs can come in a variety of shapes and strengths, they all share a few traits - most notably, their shells provide a bit of defense (which it can boost through various means), and their strong pincers can cause more than just a few bruises and minor cuts, especially against adventurers who don't keep their wits about them.

Crabs are sometimes hunted for their meat, which can be cooked into a number of delicious dishes, and their shells, which are durable and yet fairly easy to work with.
