A king crab is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series

Characteristics[]

These killer crustaceans with brown carapaces and orange exoskeletons are assumed to be at the top of the food chain, and are typically found late wherever they appear. Most will try to put their prey to sleep before launching an aggressive assault with their pronounced pincers. Otherwise, they provide any school of sea life with extra defence, making mobs more difficult to bring down.
