Cerebrocrustaceans are a crab-like species from the Encephalonus system.
AppearanceCerebrocrustaceans closely resemble giant crabs.
Cerebrocrustaceans have red/brown exoskeletons with small spikes around the face and on top of their head.
According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Cerebrocrustaceans come in other "crabby colors".
A Cerebrocrustacean's head is very large, with arms sprouting from each side.
Cerebrocrustaceans have claws, four/six spider-like legs and a stubby torso.
A Cerebrocrustacean's face is composed of only eyes and a mouth.
Only male Cerebrocrustaceans have been seen so far, so it is unknown what female Cerebrocrustaceans look like.
Primitive Cerebrocrustaceans took advantage of the storms surrounding the Encephalonus planets and it in turn resulted in the destruction (by using up all resources) of the planets from Encephalonus to Encephalonus III.
By the time they arrived at Encephalonus IV, Cerebrocrustaceans had evolved in order to create electricity instead of taking it away from the environment.
Modern Cerebrocrustaceans are deeply ashamed of their ancestors being responsible for the destruction of Encephalonus and the two other planets in their solar system.
Powers and Abilities
Cerebrocrustaceans have a large brain, giving them high intelligence.
Cerebrocrustaceans can solve difficult calculations mentally in a few seconds. They know complex angular physics, and can visualize equations and movement of objects as if they're actually there.
Cerebrocrustaceans can produce and manipulate electricity, in forms that can be put to various uses, including launching electricity, creating protective coatings, and creating force fields, by opening the exoskeleton plates on their skull. They can generate electricity with their pincers without needing to open their skull plates.
Cerebrocrustaceans can use their electrokinesis to telekinetically move objects, they're also capable EM wave readers enabling telereceiving.
Cerebrocrustacean can control machinery and similar things using their electrokinesis, giving them a form of technokinesis.
If a Cerebrocrustacean's skull plates are closed while using their brain for electricity, they can be hurt and overheat. They are also vulnerable to Vicetopus, which is their natural predator.

Notable Cerebrocrustacean Hybrids
