A crab is a small crustacean that is only found on the beaches and other aquatic areas of Rayman 2: The Great Escape. They are yellow-orange in colour, and they hurt Rayman if he touches them, but even at the maximum power of his energy spheres, he cannot destroy them. Hitting them will only cause them to fly up briefly before landing, like a rat in Rayman 3, which also includes shots from Robo-Pirates.
In Rayman 2, crabs can be found in the Sanctuary of Water and Ice and Whale Bay. In the PlayStation version of the game, two other crabs are oddly present in pirate strongholds in the Echoing Caves. In Rayman Revolution, they can additionally be found at the Pier in the Minisaurus Plains, the first part of the Front.
