Most of us are fascinated by anime and superhero movies, where our favourite heroes fight, win and save the day. Seems like this concept has inspired a Twitter user who has been under quarantine due to coronavirus.
“This is what the 21st century is all about,” the user captioned the video where one can see a crab fighting a robot of its size. While the robot keeps on moving, trying to attack the crab, the insect pushes the robot and triumphs eventually.

The video has garnered more than 3 million views in a single day. Netizens seemed quite mesmerized by the epic fight.
While some called it animal cruelty, others said it can’t be termed so since the animal wins.

A few other users appreciated the crab’s amazing fighting skills with which he pins down the robot.
