The Giant Enemy Crab is a creature in Scribblenauts. It resembles a giant crab, though it has two glowing eyes. If it is not hostile, it is ride-able and can be used to attack. Most people will run away in fear of it.

The Giant Enemy Crab and its synonyms come from a video from E3 2006 where the video game "Genji: Days Of the Blade" for PS3 is being presented. While the presenter is talking about how the game is based on Japanese history, a giant crab appears on screen. He then says that it's a "giant enemy crab", and you have to flip it over and shoot it's weak point for massive damage.

In the sequel, the Giant Enemy Crab is not hostile, despite having "enemy" as an adjective.


  • It will be protective of crabs and ninjas.


Riding one in Scribblenauts and using a flamethrower will cause you to fly up backwards, because the flamethrower is pointing downward and the flames will hit anything, including the crab.
