Know your enemy

Here are a few of the not-so-friendly native creatures waiting to attack your Pikmin and complicate your mission.

  • Bulborb


    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.

  • Whiptongue Bulborb

    Whiptongue Bulborb

    Part of the Bulborb family, it has an extra long tongue, giving it more range to grab its prey.

  • Bearded Amprat

    Bearded Amprat

    A fearsome creature capable of sending out electric shocks to fend off any Pikmin brave enough to come into contact with it.

  • Peckish Aristocrab

    Peckish Aristocrab

    Found near water, this creature will grab Pikmin with pincers. It can also blow bubbles that temporarily trap small prey.

  • Pyroclasmic Slooch

    Pyroclasmic Slooch

    These slow-moving creatures use fire to keep away potential predators. They also use their tongues to reel in prey.

  • Arachnode


    An eight-legged creature that traps its prey in a sticky web.

  • Medusal Slurker

    Medusal Slurker

    These gelatinous creatures float above their prey and suck them up into their transparent bodies.

  • Dessicated Skitter Leaf

    Dessicated Skitter Leaf

    It may look like a leaf, but this critter is just using camouflage to trick its prey.

Yellow Pikmin

Some creatures are bigger than others... MUCH bigger.
