It is a blue, seafaring variant of the Crabid.
Handsome crabs are monstrous crustaceans with a bright blue exoskeleton, bulging eyes, and cyan or grey-colored undersides. They are constantly drooling from their maws, which are lined with razor-sharp fangs. They are capable of landing Critical Hits with their thorny claws and their shells offer them excellent protection against the weapons of adventurers, but they are still vulnerable to offensive magic. The crabs are known as the blue devils of the sea, having sunk many fishing ships from underneath the water's surface and are the bane of many a fishing village.

|Deft defenders and cool critical critters, these colossal crabs are the scourge of the seas. Flash-fry them with a little fire.
Every full moon, they assemble under the ocean and quiety clack their claws to mark the start of their monthly meeting.
Handsome crabs appeared from the very beginning of the game, being the strongest monsters of the Aquatic family in Version 1.0 of the game. They maintained their ability to land Desperate attacks and are capable of using Defending Champion to protect themselves, as well.

The handsome crab's name is a play on words of handsom cab, a two-wheeled horse-drawn carriage.
