- A huge monster in the form of a horseshoe crab.
Giant horseshoe crabs are 100 times the size of regular horseshoe crabs, making them slightly larger than a llama. Giant horseshoe crabs are amphibious creatures found in ocean biomes, and are normally non-threatening. Theoretically, giant horseshoe crabs could appear as mounts during a siege, however no ocean-inhabiting civilization exists to ride them into battle.
Unlike their smaller cousins, giant horseshoe crabs make for poor training partners in adventure mode, being too flimsy to last long as punching bags, too large for an unskilled wrestler to restrain, and massive enough that their pushes will crush limbs and mangle joints if they connect.
