Running Crabs are enemies found in Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland.
Running Crabs are small crabs that wander the beaches of Sunshine Seashore. Once the running crab spots Tingle, it will charge right at him to get in a battle. These enemies are rather weak and Tingle can defeat them quite easily. Later in the quest, Tingle will encounter more powerful Blue Running Crab as well as a purple Stealing Sand Crab.
When defeated, a Running Crab will drop Minced Meat as a reward.
