Crabs are small animals found in The Wind Waker.


The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, crabs are small, helpless creatures that are found near the water on islands across the Great Sea, usually on sand but sometimes in grass. They are the smallest creatures in the game, and are completely harmless. If Link gets too close to them, they will scatter and disappear into the ground, then resurface once Link is no longer nearby. They are found throughout the beaches of the Great Sea, but are very common on Outset Island.
