Crawler is an enemy from Final Fantasy VII fought in the Mythril Mine and in the sixth round of the Battle Square before the player obtains the Tiny Bronco. When fought in the Battle Square its stats are enhanced with double the normal HP and its Attack and Magic Attack are increased by 25%.

Crawler only has a physical attack and a weakness to Earth-elemental attacks, and is no threat. It often attacks in groups, so the party should use the Matra Magic ability to wipe them out, if they have acquired it.
