Just in case you guys don;t know how big these things are:



Theres one of these (or maybe its a snow crab) hanging on the wall at this restaurant at the Seattle waterfront called Ivar's, and the thing is at least twice this size. Scary.

king crab > snow crab

From Encyclopedia.com
The blue crab of the Atlantic coast of the United States is a swimming crab that is much used for food. It is marketed as a soft-shelled crab after it has molted and before the new shell has hardened. Females of the oyster and mussel crabs live inside the shells of bivalve mollusks. Often seen scurrying about near their burrows in muddy banks are the fiddler crabs , the males of which have one much enlarged claw used in defense and in courtship rituals. The sand, or ghost, crabs build burrows high up on the sand into which they seem to vanish. The sluggish, long-legged spider crabs are often disguised by the algae, barnacles, and sea anemones that attach themselves to the carapace. The giant spider crab of Japan, the largest living arthropod, has legs about 4 ft (22 cm) long and a carapace over 1 ft (30 cm) wide. The closely related kelp crabs are found in kelp beds in the Pacific. The name king crab is applied to the largest (up to 20 lb/9 kg) of the edible crabs, species native to the N Pacific and marketed frozen, canned, or fresh.

Crabs can be scary, but I would absolutely shit my swimmingpants If I'd ever come across a huge octopus.

I hate crabs. The bigger are they, the scariest for me they are!

Makes me wonder why FPSs with monsters in them haven't used crabs a bit more often instead of all those spiders. In fact, I can't remember when there was last used monster crabs in games.

Really, crab = armoured spider with frighteningly huge claws, but without the ability to climb walls and ceilings.

Super Mario Bros. 2 had a crab for a boss enemy. Other than that, I can't think of any right now.

They've got no claws, so they ain't scary. They're rather pretty laughable.
