Dragon Quest Wiki

The claws célèbre is a monster who appears in Dragon Quest VII.


As the other crab-men the player faces, the claws célèbre is not much of a threat on its own. But, these one-clawed wonders of the deep often come in mobs. Worse still, a claws célèbre can send out for help, otherwise a boon for parties needing to grind EXP.

Monster Meadows quotes:
Want to go for a swim together?

Crabs are normally just a temporary annoyance, easily dealt with. But catch me and you will know true agony.

No, keep talking. Really, I'm looking right at you.


My name is known throughout the ocean!

Would you care to go for a swim with a bona fide celebrity?

Ah, being famous is no picnic, you know!


The monster's name is a pun on cause célèbre, a French phrase that describes a controversial issue that attracts a great deal of public attention.
