...is this a thing? Rarity vs a giant crab. So random. (Value study ~ 1 hour)
Edit: OK, I did some research and for those of you, like me, who were wondering... *Whatsapokemon
commissioned many artists to draw Rarity fighting a crab, and it has begun to catch on as a meme. Apparently he had no other reason (other than being random) to request art of this specific subject.
My best guess was that the original concept came from two internet phenomena: The Giant Enemy Crab
derives from an awkward E3 game presentation which "features battles which actually happened in Japan" where you fight said crab. (More info
) And Rule of the Internet #35.2
(from rules of the internet
), states, "If no pony is found of it, it will be made." As a result, we now have Rarity fighting crabs. But, at this point, you're free to come up with your own guesses.
Edit2: This was featured by the Cutie Art Crusaders in Episode 43 - Crab Battle!
Thanks for the critique, and I made a quick correction to Rarity's anatomy. Thanks for pointing that out! : D
