Wheatley Crab is a quote referring to an animation from the beta tests of Portal 2 in which the robotic character Wheatley, a sentient robotic orb in the original game, grows legs and morphs into a crab-like shape. After being discovered in 2020, the animation inspired remixes pairing the animation with songs.


The Portal 2 beta footage was posted to YouTube on February 10th, 2012 by YouTuber Mystery Ezekude. The footage showed multiple unused animations for the game, including Wheatley turning into a crab-like creature (shown below, left). In the footage, the person filming can be heard saying "Hahaha… Wheatley crab!"
