Here are a few of the not-so-friendly native creatures waiting to attack your Pikmin and complicate your mission.
It's considered one of the weakest of the Bulborbs, but can still hold its own against a good-sized Pikmin squad. Attack from behind to gain the advantage. Weakest point: eyeballs.
Part of the Bulborb family, it has an extra long tongue, giving it more range to grab its prey.
A fearsome creature capable of sending out electric shocks to fend off any Pikmin brave enough to come into contact with it.
Found near water, this creature will grab Pikmin with pincers. It can also blow bubbles that temporarily trap small prey.
These slow-moving creatures use fire to keep away potential predators. They also use their tongues to reel in prey.
An eight-legged creature that traps its prey in a sticky web.
These gelatinous creatures float above their prey and suck them up into their transparent bodies.
It may look like a leaf, but this critter is just using camouflage to trick its prey.
This extra-large creature can be found in hollowed-out trees. Its exoskeleton is made of crystal.
