Headcrabs (Possidere omnisvostrumcorpusisticadtigiutus, literally "possess all your body are belong to us") are a minion created by Darktan to brainwash neutral and good guys. They are crabs with a large, shut hole, which open when they latch on to a victim.
Headcrabs were an experiment in which he chucked a Doom Weed, DVD player, and a Darktan brainwashing DVD. He fed the vile liquid to a crab, and so came the Headcrab.
Headcrabs attack by latching on the the victim's head. The crabs feed of sugar and fat, making it also a cure for Fat. The excess energy makes the crab bigger. The small thin arms gain an adhesive, and since the pincers are so heavy, it falls on the flippers, make it look like the victim has pincers. Darktan can use his power the Shadow Amulet gave him of the control the victim.
The victim can be cured from citric acid from lemons, in which the crab will deattach and run away. This removes Darktan's control.
Headcrabs are nasty, as it hard to get of and if you get a friend, the crab will simply switch hosts to your friends, curing you but infecting the other.
This have gave them a reputation in Antarctica. Despite this, Darktan still classifies them as lesser minions.
- This is a parody of the headcrabs from Half-Life.
- Foldy is extremely paranoid of these.
