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 it 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, they would have been over two hundred years old, hence "Old," and Old salty is hostile, hence "Salty."
  • Alternatively, its name may be a reference to Old Salty Crab from the game Sleeping Dogs.
