"This crab appears in large numbers when it rains. One bite of its delectable meat, and you'll forget all your exhaustion. Replenishes your stamina when cooked in a dish."
— In-game description

Bright-Eyed Crabs are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are rare crabs that appear in large numbers in certain areas when it rains. They are curative item that restores Link's health by refilling one Heart Container. Link can cook with them on an open flame or very hot surface to make Blackened Crabs, or prepare Frozen Crabs in cold conditions. He can throw Bright-Eyed Crabs into a cooking pot to prepare dishes granted with a "Energizing" effect temporarily restoring a part of the Stamina Wheel. It can also be cooked with "Energizing" small animals such as Restless Crickets or Energetic Rhino Beetles, and Monster parts to create a Energizing Elixirs.

Due to the rain produced by the Divine Beast Vah Ruta, one of the best places to hunt for them is Zora's Domain before defeating it. The traveling merchant Chumin stocks up to 3 Bright-Eyed Crabs for 40 Rupees (120 Rupees for all three), though only when the weather is clear or cloudy as he replaces them with Hearty Blueshell Snails when it is raining.
