Crabs-K is a small crab-like enemy Mechaniloid from Mega Man X8 that only appear in the intro stage, Noah's Park. Their small size allows them to easily slip under normal shots and they attack by running at the player, inflicting damage on contact.
Crabs-Y also releases Crabs-Ks during its second encounter in Noah's Park waterfall area, where they drop items that fill the Attack Gauge when defeated. In Noah's Park Intermission, several Crabs-K have gone berserk and the player must destroy as many of them as possible.
