Alien Species

Crabdozers[1] are a non-sapient species indigenous to the planet Pyros and the natural predator of Pyronites.



Crabdozers are dark purple rock-skinned creatures with crab-like bodies and rhino-like heads. They have six crab-like legs, a long horn, and black eyes with red irises.

Powers and abilities[]

As their size suggests, Crabdozers have enhanced strength and can smash through almost any barrier using their horn.

Crabdozers are very durable and immune to fire thanks to their thick rock-like skin. They can also put out a Pyronite's fire with their saliva.

Crabdozers are very fast for their size, being able to keep up with Arachnichimps.

Crabdozers can survive in the vacuum of space.


Crabdozers can be launched backwards by a Talpaedan's jackhammer arms.

Crabdozers can be eaten by a Gourmand.


Even though they are considered native to Pyros, Crabdozers do not actually live there for most of their life cycle. Rather, they are in space orbiting the Pyros system like asteroids. At certain times, Crabdozers change course to crash into Pyros. They feed for a time before riding solar flares back out into space.[1]



  • One of the trophies seen on Khyber's ship is a Crabdozer head.
  • Crabdozers can be found in game preserves.[1]
  • It is possible to make a fireproof bag out of Crabdozer skin. However, the idea seems very difficult. Therefore, one could only use the skin where it is thin enough to be shaped and sown.[1]
