Rarity Fighting a Giant Crab by SubjectNumber2394 Rarity Fighting a Giant Crab by SubjectNumber2394
Hey guys, I know it's been while so here's a picture of Rarity fighting a giant crab to make up for it. From the mind of :iconwhatsapokemon:.

I used about 3 crab reference pictures but I'm sure there's a few mistakes. Also spent around an hour looking for a picture of Rarity's hair at that angle.
I painted this the same way I painted Background Pony which I am slowly getting the hang of.

MLP:FIM belongs to Hasbro.

You're going to lose this fight, big guy!
Most illustrious and and refined giant enemy crab indeed.
Ok this is like the 5th or 6th Giant Crab battle I have seen.  Most of which are with Rarity.  Heck, in the selection of similar pics for this one.  I see several more Crab Battle pictures I have yet to see. 

Why is Rarity always fighthing Giant Crabs.   Does she just have a bad (VERY BAD) case of crabs (Very Bad Pun)?  Does she really love seafood that much?  Is this the reason why Pearls are so rare in Equestria, since I don't remember ever seeing a pearl in the show?  Did a crab kill her grandfather and now she wants revenge?  Does the crab owe her money for a dress she made for it?  Did the dress not fit right and looked terrible at the Winter Crab Ball so the Crab wants revenge?  Did another Crab show up in the same dress made by Rarity as well and now 2 Crabs are upset and want to fight her?  What would a Crab in a Dress even look like?  Do I even know what I am talking about anymore?   If a Crab did dress up in a dress, would it even be able to wear stockings or would it have to just stick with socks?  Are you really reading this far into what I am saying?  Is the Crab a jealous ex-lover who saw her hanging out with spike to much and could not take it anymore, so it started a fight with spike, but we all know how weak he is sooooooo, Rarity has to jump in to save her little Spikey Wikey from the Claws of Death, and this is my biggest run-on sentence ever?

Did I make you laugh?

I don't know but you sure gave me the giggles looking at the crab with a giant sword.   I mean come one.  Who makes a giant sword and shield for a giant crab anywa...........  Oh No!  Not starting that up again.  ;D

i dont get it
Where'd this whole Rarity Fighting Crabs thing come from? X_x
From Rarity! She fights giant crabs.
No, I mean the origin of the Meme. I never saw her fight a crab once in the cartoon show or the comic books. -_-'
