From Sonic Retro
|Game: Sonic Forces|
|Affiliation(s): Eggman Empire|
The Death Crab (デスクラブ) is a colossal crab-like battlemech that appears in Sonic Forces. As one of Dr. Eggman's greater creations, this highly destructive yet determined machine protects the Eggman Empire's operations at Guardian Rock.
When the Avatar is sent to Guardian Rock to cause a distraction so the Resistance can infiltrate the Chemical Plant, the Death Crab emerges to impede the Avatar's progress by crawling around in the background at various points and stomping the ground with its metallic legs to crush anything that stays under them. At the end of the stage, the Death Crab gives pursuit to the Avatar, and the player must successfully execute Quick-time events for the Avatar to successfully trip the Death Crab up with their grappling hook and escape.
The Death Crab also appears in the second issue of IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog comic series, where it attacks a town in order to draw out Sonic. Sure enough, Sonic shows up and defeats it before it could trample the town. Though it managed to get back up, Amy finishes it off with her Piko Piko Hammer.
