1Crabs are neutral land and sea bottom creatures that walk sideways. They run from the player, but if the player manages to catch up with it and collide, the player will be damaged half a heart because of the crab's pincers. Crabs can climb walls of 1 block high and therefore won't jump. They can breathe underwater.


The species of the crab are randomly chosen on spawn. There are 3 species in total:

  • Orange Fiddler Crab
  • Graceful Crab
  • Blue Crab, which is bigger

Graceful Crab


A Crab can be tamed by right-clicking it with a raw Starfish item. It will then: not flee from the player anymore, not hit the player anymore and be able to be put on the player's head by right-clicking.

Bug: The Crab will only disable fleeing after a reload.


Crabs used to spawn starfish whenever they spawned.
