|“||Destroy the eye!||„|
|~ Announcer in Gradius ReBirth|
Crawler X is a stronger variant of the Crawler found in Nemesis (GB), although in look only, as it has a completely new attack pattern. Unlike the original, its core has now evolved into an eye/mouth combination, and it's also grown a pair of arms. Its weak spot is the eye.
Crawler X sticks to the floor and ceiling, unlike the free floating boss from Nemesis (GB), it now bends it's "legs" to move.
It fires out small organic blobs from its eye that explode into a spread of shots if destroyed. It also tries to hit you with its claws. In addition to this, it can also create a wave through the floor and ceiling, leaving a small safe spot somewhere near the Crawler. It uses its claw attack at the very start of the battle, something that is fairly likely to catch newcomers off guard.
