Compared to the previous bosses, Cray Claw can be very easy. His Tail Screw attack will put a character into critical status, while his mucus attack casts Sap. If he casts these attacks back-to-back, it might KO a character. He is susceptible to the paralyzing effect of a Beastmaster's whip. Paralyzing him each turn with an Attack can prevent him from dealing damage entirely.
Cray Claw is not immune to Petrification. This boss can be one-hit killed by using the Beastmaster's Catch and Release to unleash an Undead Husk to cast Break (which is far unavailable to the party's Black Mages at this point). This method is very elaborate as it requires finding a Undead Husk at the Ship Graveyard and requires a lot of foresight as the player will be rail-roaded a lot before encountering this boss, so it'd be best to capture a Undead Husk way before even going to the Desert of Shifting Sands to reach the Gohn.
Cray Claw from Final Fantasy V appears as an enemy in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.
