That's a Dark Craw. Yikes. What a ghastly-looking spear-thrower. Max HP is 20, Attack is 6, and Defense is 0. Wow, that's some serious Attack power. You don't wanna Jump on it if its spear is pointing up. 'Cause that... would hurt. For a run-of-the-mill spear-tosser, he sure looks like he's got a POINT to make! Ha ha!


Dark Craws are a dark version of Craws. They are one of the numerous enemies encountered during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Dark Craws, just like Gus, throw their spears, and charge toward the player with them. Because of the Dark Craw's spear, Mario cannot jump on it, for he will take damage.

A Glitz Pit fighter named Craw-Daddy is a Dark Craw with no changed stats and is usually ranked within the top five fighters of the Glitz Pit.

Dark Craws are also found in the Pit of 100 Trials, between floors 61 and 69. Here, Dark Craws are found more frequently, and often in groups.
