“Yar! You'll make a tasty treat!”
 Super Mario series
 Super Mario Bros. 2
Fought in World 5-3, Clawgrip would attack players by using his claws to throws boulders at them; in order to injure Clawgrip, these boulders would need to be caught by the player's character and thrown back at Clawgrip. After being hit five times, Clawgrip would be defeated.
 Super Mario Advance
In Super Mario Advance, Clawgrip, instead of being a giant crab at the beginning of the battle against him, is simply a small Sidestepper. Clawgrip is grown to his giant size when he is engulfed by several bubbles which resemble the ones Wart is capable of spitting; once at this size, Clawgrip, in a stereotypical pirate accent, will exclaim "Yar! You'll make a tasty treat!" and begin to throw boulders. After defeating him, he will say: "Yar! You got me" again in a pirate accent.
 BS Super Mario USA
Clawgrip returns with the other bosses from Super Mario Bros. 2 in BS Super Mario USA. Like in the first game, Clawgrip serves as a mini-boss, and is fought in a similar way as in his battle from Super Mario Bros. 2.
 The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
 "Rolling Down the River"
Clawgrip's first appearance in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! was in the episode "Rolling Down the River", where he manned the help of Captain Koopa's ship, the Sinister Star while Koopa was making Mario walk the plank. The Mouth of the River used a cannon to fire a Turnip at Clawgrip, knocking him down onto the ship's lower deck.
 "Pirates of Koopa"
In a later episode of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, entitled "Pirates of Koopa", Clawgrip makes a brief appearance, being seen among the minions of Blackbeard Koopa waiting for his return to Pirate's Port.
 "Mario of the Deep"
Clawgrip's last appearance in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! was in the episode "Mario of the Deep"; in this appearance, a Clawgrip appears to attack Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, Toad and their Mermushroom companion in a sunken ship; Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool and the Mermushroom all manage to easily avoid the Clawgrip by simply jumping over him and going through a nearby hatch that was too small for Clawgrip to pass through. The characters commented that this Clawgrip was simply a Clawgrip, implying that Clawgrips are a species.
 Nintendo Comics System
In Nintendo Comics System, Clawgrip, instead of being a single character, was portrayed as a species, all of whom seemed to work for King Bowser Koopa. In The Fish That Should've Gotten Away, several Clawgrips appear among the monsters trying to defeat Mario; Mario manages to narrowly avoid these Clawgrips, all the while being annoyed by Stanley the Talking Fish.
 Nintendo Adventure Books
In Pipe Down!, Clawgrip appears guarding a tunnel which leads to Pipe World under the Mushroom Palace. If Mario and Luigi give Clawgrip a noisemaker or a pair of boots, he will let them pass peacefully, but if they give him a balloon (which he accidentally pops) or try to run past, he will grow angry and give chase to them. The brothers can distract Clawgrip by throwing some coins at him, but if they do not have any or decide not to give any up, Clawgrip will catch up to the two, leading to a Game Over.
