Peckish Aristocrab

Peckish Aristocrab is a enemy in Pikmin 3.

Character description

Its overall appearance resembles a green and purple bulb of garlic with 4 legs coming from underneath, and two claws on each of its sides, one of them being extremely small, while the other is much larger with transparent pincers. It has two round yellow spots on its cheeks, which look like eyes, while its real eyes rest on stalks that protrude out from the top of its head. It has a large mouth with a serrated lower jaw and long purple tongue. The creature mainly rests in a motionless position, clacking its large pincers, but can detect Pikmin's presence from afar, and it will quickly scuttle sideways onto the player's path when they enter the area, circling them in order to get in their way.

When Pikmin are thrown at it, the creature is capable of maneuvering its massive claw to shield itself from the thrown Pikmin. It can also defend itself by blowing bubbles at the Pikmin, which can trap them inside the bubbles, making them float around for a long period of time until the bubble pops. This can trap captains as well. It attacks by grasping multiple Pikmin with its claw and dropping them into its gaping mouth. It can also stab the ground with its claw to attack.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Peckish Aristocrabs appear as stage hazards in Garden of Hope. They walk sideways and destroys one of the platforms of the stage and launches anyone who stands in its way.

Trophy Description

This crab-like life-form form Pikmin 3 traps Pikmin in its bubbles. When it appears in the Garden of Hope stage, it creates a path of destruction from one end of the stage to the other, but if the central bridge isn't there, it'll just fall right down. You can tell where it'll appear by the telltale appearance of bubbles, so watch out!
