Crabid (formerly Army Crab and ArmyCrab) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


Crabid has a red carapace, yellow on the underside, arms, and legs. They have large eyes and even larger, gaping mouths lined with pointed teeth. A trail of drool can be seen on their lower jaw, seemingly suggesting that they carry the disease rabies, which would make sense in comparission to their name.

Description They may look creepy, but these crabs are kind of cowardly, and will call companions or cut and run quite quickly.

People think that clusters of crabids crawl the shoes prowling for prey, but they're just pals out on a seaside stroll.
