For the critter, see Crab (critter).

Spider crab from Warcraft III.

A crab is a (typically) small crustacean that is often found on beaches. Crabs have high armor, as the shell would imply. Crabs are typically neutral and ignore passers-by. They drop claws and meat that are used in cooking recipes (e.g., Crawler Meat for making Crab Cakes). Crabs are found in Durotar, The Barrens, Darkshore, Westfall, Blackfathom Deeps, Ashenvale, Desolace, Stranglethorn Vale, Azuremyst Isle and the Swamp of Sorrows. They are usually found along the coastline in some watery zones. Sometimes, they may appear as critters. One can even find tiny red lava crabs scuttling about in the Searing Gorge and Burning Steppes. Crabs are not skinnable. Crabs also appear in Wrath of the Lich King (after mostly being ignored in The Burning Crusade); one example is Kili'ua.

The achievement Money achievement To All the Squirrels I've Loved Before requires the player character to /love various critters, including crabs. These can be found in Steamvault and Ghostlands, although at level 80 they are most easily accessed at Kili'ua's island off of Moa'ki Harbor in Dragonblight. Not all crab creatures fill this requirement; it appears that the targeted crab must be a critter, not a mob.
