Clawgrip (misspelled as "Clawglip" in some versions) is a boss crab that, so far, has appeared only in Super Mario Bros. 2, in World 5-3. He is exclusive to that game; Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic had a white Mouser in his place instead.

If Super Mario Advance 1 is to be believed, he evolved from a Sidestepper. Similar to the Huckits seen in future Mario games, he throws rocks. To defeat him, the active character must pick up a rock and throw it back at him. With good timing, they can score a double hit on him by hitting another rock that he throws. He takes five hits to defeat.
