Pincers are enemies that appear in every Shantae game.


Pincers are creatures with one yellow eye and (as their name indicates) a pair de pincers. In Shantae, said pincers are quite small compared to their bodies, but in Risky's Revenge this is reversed. In Half-Genie Hero, marks are added to their pincers and some of its parts are now pink.


They jump up from the gaps between platforms to try and pinch Shantae. They cannot be defeated in the first game, but in the second they can only be defeated by using an explosive cloud, which is a bit tricky to achieve.
