- Bright-underbellied subspecies of stoneshears. Much like its progenitor, the rubyshears prefers the shade of caves and cliffsides. When mating season rolls around, several of the strongest specimens start patrolling the area around the nest, attacking any and all who approach.

Rubyshears is weak to greatswords, shields and ice. The cliffside on the huntsground can be point-warped to. The crabs are slow-moving and attack those in front of them with their pincers. The attack where they attack with both their pincers at once can be blocked and parried.
Positioning behind the crabs to attack can deal blindside-strikes and—hopefully—blindside links if the player is wielding a one-handed sword, greatsword or a polearm. Warp-striking the crabs from the cliffside point-warp spot with a greatsword can put them into vulnerable state.
