Kaiser Turbotaur (カイザーオニザエミ, Kaizā Onizaemi) is a Carapaceon.


Kaiser Turbotaur sports a white carapace and a gray, spiraled shell with several spikes across the surface of the shell. Hidden inside the shell is a long, curled tail. Unlike other Carapaceons, Kaiser Turbotaur's shell grows with it so it doesn't require the use of a monster's skull for protection. Both its carapace and its shell are covered with dark spots. It sports a pair of large pincers with spiked edges and black upper halves.


Like its relatives, Kaiser Turbotaur can spit pressurized jets of liquid. However, Kaiser Turbotaur shoots a liquid nitrogen-like substance instead of water. This liquid is very cold to touch and can induce frostbite in prey and hunters. Its large claws are used to crush prey and break through the icy ground of its habitat and travel underground. Its most notable for being able to build up pressure in its shell and eventually launching it at its target like a projectile, earning the title of "Rocket Crab".


Kaiser Turbotaur is rather passive and is relatively docile, but will defend itself vigorously if threatened. Its commonly seen with younger Turbotaur.


Kaiser Turbotaur is primarily found within the Frozen Seaway, Polar Sea, Snowy Mountains, and the Tundra.


  • The "turbo-" in its name actually comes from turban, referring to the shape of its shell. The shape of its shell appears to be inspired by the horned turban snail. Its concept is most likely based off the Sazae-oni, a creature in Japanese mythology that forms when turban snails, especially Turbo cornutus, reach 30 years of age.
    • The Sazae-oni is further referenced in the Japanese names of Turbotaur and Kaiser Turbotaur.
  • When the shell has been broken or launched, it reveals its weak spot, its tail. If its shell is still intact, it will reattach its shell afterwards.
    • It is possible to destroy the shell after its been launched.
  • Kaiser Turbotaur's pincers, shell, and tail can be broken.
    • The shell needs to be broken twice in order to be destroyed.
      • When its shell is broken it won't be able to use its shell projectile attack.
  • When low on stamina Kaiser Turbotaur will fail to shoot its liquid nitrogen stream.
