A handsome crab (Ganiras in Japan) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.

Characteristics

Appearance is similar to the Crabids on land, but with a bluish complexion and a much tougher exoskeleton. In Dragon Quest III they thrive only in very cold ocean water, as well as on a few neighboring islands and coastal plains.
