King Crab, a character in the "Endless Summer" series, is a giant crab and the Shore Guardian of La Huerta. Like most of the strange animals found on La Huerta, the King Crab is likely either from another time when gigantic arthropods roamed the earth, or has been mutated by La Huerta's environment. It is first seen in Book 1, Chapter 8.


The crab has a mottled red shell and its eight eyes are coal black. It has black pincers and a soft white underside.



The Vaanti revere the King Crab as the Shore Guardian of La Huerta and treat it with cautious reverence. They were furious to hear of the creature's demise at the hands of the Twelve Catalysts.


  • In Book 1, Chapter 6, if Your Character enters the correct passcode into the computer, they will experience a weird transition through other worlds where the narrator takes on the form of the King Crab.
