Crusher is a very large squid who is pink and blue in color. It has three large orange eyes. It has about a dozen tentacles, which are strong enough to pull a boat underwater and crush people like insects. It also shoots molten rocks from the top of its head, which is another attack it uses.
With multiple eyes and an arsenal of tentacles, this creature is the most feared by pirates. After hearing about Crusher, Bentley decided the gang should encounter him and use him as an ally to aid in their mission to rescue Penelope from Captain LeFwee. Crusher resides in the misty waters located in the northwestern corner of the oceans. When the Cooper Gang reached the monster's foggy lair, they were instantly attacked by him.
The Panda King and Sly Cooper engaged the beast in battle while the rest of the Cooper Gang sought shelter below the ship's deck. The two defeated Crusher after two lengthy battles, during which it first attacked the Panda King, then Sly with its tentacles and molten rocks it launched from the top of its head. After that, the Guru got inside the creature's mind and convinced him to help the Cooper Gang rescue Penelope. After the gang rescued Penelope, Crusher presumably returned to its underwater lair.
- Along with Captain LeFwee, Crusher is one of the only minor bosses to not have a health meter.
- Similar to the Beast, an enemy from another Sucker Punch game, inFAMOUS 2, is named after this character.
