Crabs are enemies in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, Spyro: Year of the Dragon and Spyro: A Hero's Tail. They come in red and orange.

The red crabs could be found in Aquaria Towers and Lost Fleet. When they catch eyesight of an enemy they will run towards them and snap their pincers fast. When they die, they break into pieces. They were also hatched from eggs spat out by the rhynocbatdactyl Scorch.

The orange crabs could be found in Coastal Remains alongside some blue, bigger counterparts.

Spyro can charge, flame or electrify them.
