A Sand Crab from A Link Between Worlds
A Link to the Past
Sand Crabs appear near the rivers of Hyrule and Lake Hylia in A Link to the Past. They have a distinct movement pattern that makes them incredibly fast in a sideways motion, but slow when moving vertically. They can cause a large amount of damage with their claws. They are defensively weak and can be defeated with a single Sword blow.
Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, Sand Crabs are found on the Western Coast, near Horon Village. Like most enemies in the game, they are attracted to the Scent Seed. They typically appear in groups of two or more in narrow spaces on the beach, where there is not much room to navigate around them, causing Link to take damage if he tries to pass by them.
Oracle of Ages
In Oracle of Ages, Sand Crabs are found on Crescent Island. Like most enemies in the game, they are attracted to the Scent Seed. They typically appear in groups of two or more in narrow spaces on the beach, where there is not much room to navigate around them, causing Link to take damage if he tries to pass by them.
Four Swords Adventures
In Four Swords Adventures, Sand Crabs sometimes appear in huge swarms on The Coast of Hyrule. They do not move vertically and simply move left and right at high speeds. If the Links move cautiously, Sand Crabs can be destroyed easily with their blades to get a large combo.
Sand Crabs share their Japanese name, ピース (Pīsu), with Lobarriers.
