The Crabmeat is a line of Badnik, modelled after a crab, that was created by Dr. Eggman to serve as part of his robot forces in his efforts to conquer the world.

After Sonic the Hedgehog managed to defeat Eggman in their previous encounter, the doctor disappeared. However, his robot forces remained and continued to attack without a leader. Among these robots were the Antons. Eventually, the Hoverbys came under the control of Neo Metal Sonic, who made them and their fellow Badniks more cohesive. (StH: #1, #7)

Once of Eggman’s bunkers contained a scrapped version of the Badnik.

Eggman’s Day Off

While Dr. Starline was given a tour of the Eggman’s “Egg Cave”, he noticed models include a model of a Crabmeat.

Wound up


The Crabmeat is based on an Crab.


Basically, the Crabmeat is a mindless and silent drone programmed to follow its leader's every command. As such, when left without a leader to follow, it becomes directionless and only able to cause harm by accident. Under a guiding force however, it is a cold and merciless machine who carries out their commands without question.
