|"A giant one-eye crab shaped robot. Its head and legs can be separated from its body."|
Crablops is a playable unit in Metal Slug Attack, first unlockable via the Extra Ops titled "Metal Slug Alice" as a rank reward. It also appears as an Attack! boss on Mondays (or Sundays, in lagging time zones). Parts can currently be obtained through the second Ptolemaic chapter in Another Story, titled "The Dream of the Prodigious Mechanic".
When the Crablops reaches low health, the bottom part of the machine is completely destroyed (rather than separating into a separate form as the original Metal Slug 7 version did), leaving just the top half of the machine intact. This makes it slightly harder to target. With the head only, Crablops uses different attacks - firing fiery projectiles and homing ion beams at the enemy.
The Crablops is weak against Yoshino; if her special attack is used while the Crablops attacks, it takes extremely rapid damage and will cause it to go to its second form much earlier.
Missile (Spread) - Shoots four missiles at the enemy. If Crablops' legs are destroyed, instead fires in a manner similar to the Cabracan.
Mole Missiles (Spread) - Two large canisters appear from the Crablops' back and land in front of it. Each canister shoots out three Mole Missiles before being destroyed. With 4, shoots an additional set of three Mole Missiles from each can. If Crablops' legs are destroyed, it fires homing ion beams that circle around enemies for damage.
