A hermit crab robot viewed from upside down

The Hermit Crab -also called Hacker Crab- is a drone technician, infiltrator and saboteur used by the Jovians in the anime series Martian Successor Nadesico. The Superior Male Forces often find themselves short on manpower and resort to using these drones to run their ships. They are also useful for hacking into Earth computer networks or hijacking enemy vehicles and mechs to turn against them. They have no combat abilities of their own and are relatively weak as they can be disabled with small arms fire.
