The large pincer has 10000 hp of crushing power. However, its huge size makes it unwieldy to use.
Yellow One claw grew massively and as hard as steel. It has 10,000-HP strength. However, it is too heavy.
Gold It can hardly lift its massive, overgrown pincer. The pincer's size makes it difficult to aim properly.
