Krawlers are robot-like enemies found in Ancient Castle and Giant's Lair. They've been created by the roaches to protect their artifacts. In Ancient Castle they have two variants: The sand one and the ice one. The Giant's Lair also adds a fire variant, which deal 1 more damage and have 3 extra HP. The Fire and Sand variant are weak to ice attacks, while the Ice variant are weak to Kabbu's horn attacks. The Sand Variant are encountered outside of the freeze area in Sand Castle and can be converted into the Ice Variant by being Frozen in battle. Inside the freeze area or in the fridge in Giants' Lair, they are encountered with Ice Variant instead. The Fire Variant is encountered near the stove in the Giants' Lair and deal more damage than other variants.
In battle, all three variants of the Krawlers are capable of running into one of the party members, dealing normal damage. The Sand variant can unleash numbing bolts, the Ice variant can unleash freezing bolts, while the Fire variant can set the target on fire.
It's recommended to use attacks on them depending on their weaknesses, as their defenses cannot be lowered by being flipped. Sand variants can be frozen if needed, but keep in mind - they'll turn into their ice variant afterwards, so you'll only be able to do so once. All variants are decently susceptible to Numb, although your access to it by the time you reach the Ancient Castle is limited.

|Bestiary||An artificial entity created to defend the Lost Sand's castle. Designed to adapt to any temperature, their weaponry applies different effects based on the environment. Attempts to engineer one from scratch in modern times have failed.|
|Vi||"Is that a bug or a bot? It's mega weird. It even changes color when it's cold! I wonder if that makes it weaker to Kabbu's hits... I think my Beemerang's always gonna work, though!"|
|Kabbu||"What a fascinating creature. It reminds me of the factory's Menderbots! It changes behavior depending on the temperature... Its ice version is weak to my horn! We must make sure to take note of which attacks are causing more damage!"|
|Leif||"That crystal... Could it be like those inside us? We should bring a piece to H.B. The temperature affects it quite a bit. We'll toy around with it...see what works. Kabbu's horn is worth a shot in the cold."|
