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. However, a White Mage should be able to keep up the constant healing.
Cray Claw is not immune to Petrification. This boss can be one-hit killed by using the Beastmaster's Catch and Release to a unleash 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. What's more, this trick requires a lot of foresight to prepare for, 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 Desert of Shifting Sands to reach the Gohn.
Cray Claw from Final Fantasy V appears as an enemy in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.
