After Riku found and rescued Pinocchio from his replica, a loud, nearby explosion startled them. Riku told both Pinocchio and Jiminy to get to safety while he investigates. Shortly after, Riku encountered the creature that caused the explosion, a Dream Eater known as; the Char Clawbster. Riku knew that the giant Dream Eater would pose a threat, so he engaged the beast in battle. After a long battle, Riku managed to defeat the crustacean Dream Eater.
- Another version of the Char Clawbster appeared in Sora's story; the Chill Clawbster.
