Craby is an amphibious enemy from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Craby does not yield any Copy Ability if swallowed.
Its name, movement patterns and method of attack resemble that of a crab, but its body is more octopus-like, with its 'claws' being ball-edged pistons that shoot out from the top of its head. It is not necessarily an enemy to be feared, but it is surprisingly effective at hitting an approaching swimmer if they come in from above.
Craby is primarily found in water, where it will scuttle slowly along the floor or back and forth on blocks. It can also be found on land.
In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, it is first encountered in the Onion Ocean level, and is commonly found patrolling the floors of underwater passages.
Craby appears again in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It remains unchanged from its previous appearance.
