|Aliases||Queer Eye for the Straight Guy|
|Voiced by||Trey Parker|
|First Appearance||South Park Is Gay|
A race of subterranean crustaceans who desire to take over the surface world however they can - unfortunately they are weak. Their only known attempt to take over the world crucially involved fooling the male population into metrosexuality so they could be easier to defeat, but it was foiled by Kyle, Herbert Garrison and Mr. Slave. They were later briefly blamed for breaking the Beavertown dam.
Their current whereabouts are unknown, but rumor has it they were sought by the Xbox 360 players during the Console Wars, while others suggest they hide in the sewers, waiting for another chance to rise...

Behind the Scenes
They are one of the many enemies under the control of the Japanese Video Game Announcer, and while physically weak, are fast, making them extremely dangerous. The Firey-Works tower is most effective against them.
A lone Crab Person can be found in the sewers, and if the player uses the Nagasaki to destroy part of the nearby rock, they can break the barrier between the Crab People's subterranean world and our realm - and get a Facebook friend request. They were originally slated for a later role in the game but were cut.
