I. Crustacean Description:
Encrusted with barnacles he fires them out of his back. He's got thick shell armor, but underneath he's a softy. Watch out for his pinch, it'll immobilize you!
(Rarity: Legendary - Type: Troop - (6) Elixir)
Exposed by low tide the Crustacean runs amok inland, and is enraged with a back full of pesky barnacles that just won't stop itching! Grasping tightly his enemies within his claw he takes his pain out on them. Only the molting of his shell will give him some sort of relief.

Loses his Barnacle attack and Pinch after the loss of his Shell armor.
-Hefty for a push starter, can keep melee troops from attacking himself while chipping away at them with his Claw Pinch and Barnacle shot.
-Use to immobilize dangerous troops such as Pekka, Hog Rider, Mega Knight, or light counter small swarms.
-Weak to stuns and long ranged attacks, he's much more docile when his Shell shield is gone.
-Be sure to keep him at a distance so he doesn't lock onto your tower with his Claw or Barnacle shot, surround with a swarm, or slow him and attack with high damage ranged attacks.
I don't know if he's balanced, hopefully he is balanced by his ability loss after the shield is gone.
The Crustacean is like a mix of the Goblin Giant and Ram Rider except he doesn't target buildings.
Edits (Feb 8): Nerfed Barnacle attack, doesn't stack, added dead zone and slightly increased range.
