In the anime

Gary Oak has a larger-than-average Krabby, which has never been seen in battle.

Ash captured a Krabby in Mystery at the Lighthouse. It was transfered to Professor Oak's lab. Ash didn't use Krabby until Round One - Begin!. After defeating an Exeggutor in its first battle, Krabby evolved into a Kingler.

In the manga

Red catches a Krabby in Pokémon Special which he trades for Misty's Gyarados. Misty later saves a Krabby trapped in Tohjo Falls in Template:PSV. This act of kindness prompts Suicune to pick Misty as his trainer, besides her being the expert for Water-type Pokémon.
