This article is about the slayer monster. For the trophy built in a Player-owned house, see Crawling hand (item).

Crawling hands are Slayer monsters that require level 5 Slayer to kill, and are the first Slayer monsters that beginning Slayers can kill. (Below level 5 Slayer, players are assigned other monsters.)  They frequently drop gloves and rings, since they are reanimated severed hands. They are also one of the creatures that will sometimes "die" in a perfect form allowing you to get it stuffed by a Taxidermist and mounted in your Player-owned house. The stuffed hand along with 5 Zeal points can also be exchanged for a Creeping hand Summoning pet at Soul Wars.

Players can also kill Skeletal hands and Zombie hands as part of a Crawling hand Slayer task. These monsters yield more slayer and combat experience than crawling hands and have better drops. Skeletal and zombie hands are found in the Meiyerditch Dungeon, which can only be accessed during and after the Legacy of Seergaze quest.

As Crawling hands are undead, Crumble Undead and Salve amulets are very effective. However, they can be easily killed without the spell or amulet since they have a low combat level.

The old version of the crawling hand.
  • The concept probably originated from the story, "La Main Gauche" from french author Guy de Maupassant. This theory is backed up by the ability to display the hand in one's home, as in the story. Another possible origin of the Crawling Hand might also be a reference to the Wallmasters/Floormasters from the Legend of Zelda series or The Addams Family.
  • The recent slayer update apparently added level 7 and 11 Crawling Hands near the entrance to the Slayer Tower.
  • With the release of Smoking Kills on the fifth of June 2008, their appearance was changed.
  • The black markings seen on some of the crawling hands is very similar to the appearance of Ash's possessed hand from Evil Dead 2, which he severs with a chainsaw, after which crawls about on its own
  • All crawling hands seem to be right-handed
