Crab Sea Nesbitt is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is an anthropomorphic crab and resident of the underwater Zone of Trituna. He has one giant claw on his left side, which he uses to snap at enemies.


Nesbitt was one of the warriors who gained the ability to breathe on dry land from a serum developed by Doctor Robotnik and given to Sharka Khan by Agent X. Sharka Khan sent Nesbitt to the Beanson Coast Zone to fight Sonic the Hedgehog. However, Sonic quickly defeated Nesbitt by running around him at high speed.[1] When the final member of the team, Jimmy Whale, was defeated by a Super Spin Attack, Nesbitt commented that Jimmy should have stuck to Underwater Boxing.

Immediately after this, the marine creatures discovered that Robotnik's serum was starting to wear off and they returned to the sea. Sonic followed them in a special diving suit designed by Tekno the Canary. Crab Sea Nesbitt and the other fighters tried to fight Sonic again, but were quickly defeated. Crab Sea Nesbitt was one of the Trituna fighters to discover Sharka Khan's treachery and vowed to rule the Zone alongside his friends. He asked if Sonic thought they would make a go of it, but Sonic privately thought they were wet behind the ears.[2]
