The Segmented Crawbster is a very large crustacean like creature that was found during later expaditions by Captain Olimar onto PNF-404. It was only encountered once within the deep caverns of the planet.


The Segmented Crawbster is similar in body structure to members of the Crawmad family, despite being in a completely different family group. Noted in Captain Olimar, evolution made it atypical: with one small leg used for locomotion, and one large arm used for defense. This asymmetrical structure makes the creature a very slow mover.

Its entire body is covered in a blue shell, with its red head covered in thicker red scale-like coverings, and a small filter-like mouth. Its only known weakspot is its glowing underbelly, though it's never conclusive as to why it glows.


One explorer made an incorrection that the Segmented Crawbster was a peaceful and quiet behavior due to the lack of carnivorous features and slow movement. However, Captain Olimar noted that it is actually very hostile and territorial.

When finding an intruder in its territory, it is capable of curling up into a ball and rolling at high ramming speed at the unsuspecting prey.
