Tactics & Tips
- The player should mainly use AoE moves, to both kill the many crab Minions and damage the Crab King while he is using Crab Shield.
- A M1 strategy is: 5 M1s, block (only 1 hit), 5 M1s, block (only 1 hit), 5 M1s (hold space) > The boss will jump on top of the player and use Claw Smash while jumping. When he comes down, loop: 5 M1s, block, 5 M1s, block, 5 M1s (hold space), loop.
- The best fruit for fighting this is Mera, keep your range and just spam Firefly to cheese the boss.
