— Crusty Sean welcoming the Player to the Crust Bucket.

Personality and Traits

Crusty Sean is known to be carelessly friendly and is obsessed with wearing many of his favorite shoes all at the same time thanks to having many legs.[1] While his "fried" body gives him the look of a tempura, it is actually just a slightly morbid designer jacket.[2]


Sean is a bright red prawn. Besides his fluffy tempura jacket, he wears a blue beanie and violet purple sneakers on all of his legs, except his front claws. He stands on one pair of legs while keeping the other three pairs folded in front of him. Crusty Sean has pink, yellow, seafoam, and magenta colored sneakers on his 3 pairs of legs that he does not stand on as seen above. He also has a pair of red antennae sprouting from the sides of his face.


  • Crusty Sean's name is a play on the word "crustacean."
  • The types of shoes he Crusty Sean sells are very similar to the Hi-Top Converse shoes.
  • On the windshield of his Food Truck in Splatoon 2, he has a picture of the Squid Sisters.
  • Crusty Sean resembles fried shrimp.
