The Giant Crab is a minor antagonist featured in the Buddhist Monkey episode Three Courses of Death.
The Giant Crab is a gigantic purple non-anthropomorphic crab summoned by Char Sui to help kill Buddhist Monkey. Char Sui either summoned it from his hat or turned his hat into the giant crab. Char Sui and The Giant Crab nearly succeeded in killing Buddhist Monkey, but the creature was destroyed when Buddhist Monkey summoned fire and boiled it to death in a lake. Its death is likely permanent as it has not returned in later episodes. At the end of the episode, one of the crab's giant claws floats over to Panda Mom, who rejoices over all the fresh crab meat she could eat (she was poor and had nothing to eat but a cooked fish skeleton).
