Old Salty is a unique mudcrab in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn that can be found at Northshore Landing and respawns upon death.



  • It is one of two named mudcrabs in the game, the other being Pincer, a pet in Hearthfire. However, unlike Pincer, Old Salty is hostile, like common mudcrabs.
  • It is quite possible that Old Salty is a reference to the Merchant Mudcrab from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind due to the fact he/she has a tankard, and gold, and in Morrowind the Merchant Mudcrab sold alcoholic beverages, the name itself might give it away too being that if this was the Merchant Mudcrab he/she would have been over 200+ years old, hence "Old", and Old salty is Hostile, hence the "Salty".
