Crabs

Crabs are a quite rare enemy that appear in Okami. There are two of them, Jiro and Saburo, and they can merge to create the shark enemy Ichiro. They are first encountered in a compulsory battle in the Sunken Ship. During this battle they are in water which allows them to transform into Ichiro however in other battles they are on land but can flood the arena to transform. Their Floral Finisher is Thunderstorm.

Jiro is the male of this pair. He is green and his shell is a shark's head thus making him Ichiro's head. He is also the main attacker of the pair. He spits urchins which will hurt Amaterasu and stick to the ground to hurt her later. He can avoid damage with his shell but if you keep hitting it it will eventually break and leave him defenseless. However he is exceptionally weak to Thunderstorm and this will damage him straight away.

Bestiary Entry

"Jiro and Saburo are the spirits of a couple who jumped into the sea when their marriage was opposed by their parents. Jiro resembles a hermit crab with a shark head for a shell. It throws sea urchins to protect Saburo and uses its own hard hide for defense. Attack repeatedly and the shell should disengage."

Saburo is the female half of this dastardly couple. She is red and her shell resembles a shark's tail thus making her the tail of Ichiro. Saburo will not attack much, instead she is the one that digs holes in the arena so that it will flood and allow them to transform into Ichiro. She will sometimes attack by spinning around and using her tail shell as a blade. She is immune to most attacks except when she is digging however like Jiro her shell can be broken and she is weak to Thunderstorm. You should use the time when she is digging to break her shell and stop her flooding the arena.

Bestiary Entry

"Sad Saburo digs holes to reunite with its partner, Jiro. It believes that by digging to let water in, the two can be together in the sea. Variations on the Saburo legend exist, especially in seaside villages."

[edit] Trivia

  • Although Jiro and Saburo do not return as enemies in Okamiden, many hermit crabs can be found in a room in the Goryeo. This room is where Amaterasu first encounters Jiro and Saburo nine months later when the Goryeo has sunken and become the Sunken Ship. Likewise, a shark appears in this room, symbolising Ichiro.
