The Scurvy Crew is the second boss in the game Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. The group is the boss of the Beach area, and are fought in the level Pinchin' Pirates. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are first encountered by the Scurvy Crew while in an attempt to blow up Donkey and Diddy Kong with bombs and an anchor cannon in Peaceful Pier, but fail at this task. The Scurvy Crew are then found in an island, eating the bananas of the Banana Hoard. However, right before the Kongs could take some action, the Maraca Tiki Trio hypnotize the crew and force them to fight against the duo.
The Scurvy Crew is made up of three crabs, notable for having a sharp object replace their left claws. The yellow crab has a fork. The blue crab has a sword. Their leader, Cap'n Greenbeard (named such in the Prima Games guide), a red crab with a blue pirate hat, an eyepatch, and a green beard, has a hook.
