Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Burrowing Snarrow appears in Pikmin 251. It behaves much like the Burrowing Snagret, partially burrowing out of the ground to try to eat leaders and Pikmin that approach its position. It looks much like a Burrowing Snagret, having a blue, serpentine body and a cream-colored head with a yellow beak, but its body is a much lighter shade of blue. Fight it aggressively to minimize Pikmin casualties, always inflicting enough damage to cause it to flinch so that it may not attack.

Notes

Olimar's observations

After talking all about the Burrowing Snarrow in my logs from the past, I finally get to see one in person! Like I wrote before, it resembles the Burrowing Snagret, but with white scales instead of blue. Like many of the creatures I've seen this time, it is quite a bit stronger as well.

Cookin' with Louie

The scales of this serpent make for great serving dishes. The meat tastes standard, nothing special about it.

Attacks Eats pikmin

The Burrowing Snarrow is a snavian miniboss in Pikmin 3.9 that behaves like the Burrowing Snagret except that it eats one Pikmin at a time and it burrows in and out of the ground faster. The Burrowing Snarrow also physically resembles the Burrowing Snagret except it has no feet and its scales are an extremely light shade of gray. To defeat it easily, swarm its head when its beak is stuck in the ground.

Areas Glistening Snowdrift
Caves Paradise Void, Jester's Nest
Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Burrowing Snarrow is a species of snavian in Pikmin: New Frontiers that is closely related to the Burrowing Snagret. It appears as a boss in the Glistening Snowdrift, then later reappears as a mini-boss in the caves Paradise Void and Jester's Nest. Its appearance heavily resembles the Burrowing Snagret's, only its body is covered in beige scales and its feathers have brown coloration on the tips. Its behavior is also identical, hiding underground before emerging to attack.

It attacks by plucking up Pikmin with its beak. Yellow Pikmin and Winged Pikmin are recommended for aiming at its head when it has emerged from the ground, but swarming its head with Pikmin just as it begins to emerge is a safer strategy. However, it also sometimes emerges from the ground instantly, leaving no time to swarm it.

Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Burrowing Snarrow appears in Pikmin: Scavenge. It is brown with red eyes and has a pair of wings with unique markings and a large tailfeather. The Burrowing Snarrow has a wide detection range considering it can appear from the ground from a far distance, and can eat Pikmin much more quickly than the Burrowing Snagret. It flies constantly and must be weighed down by Pikmin so its head can be attacked. Its younger form, the Downy Snarrow, takes a while to mature and can glide only a short distance with its little strength.

Notes

Olimar's notes

To see a snarrow in real life is quite the treat! It's not exactly how I expected it to be. I thought it would be much plumper and have white scales rather than brown ones. But it is what it is.

Louie's notes

Regrettable research has found that the eyes are a signal that the meat is extremely poisonous. If you actually ARE feeling like a snarrow, the meat will taste like blood no matter what.

Attacks Eats and burns Pikmin, causes panic

In Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator, the Burrowing Snarrow appears in the last dungeon in the Highland Field, the Dark Field Cave. It behaves similarly to a Burrowing Snagret, but its scales are a deeper shade of blue, and the feathers on its head are the same color as its dark blue skin. Its eyes glow green like an Armored Cannon Beetle's. This creature is much more dangerous to fight because when its head pops up, it can shake from side to side to send out shockwaves around where it is currently rooted in the ground. These shockwaves can easily knock over Pikmin, making them easy targets for the quick enemy. It can also scream, scaring the Pikmin into running in all directions. It also has one more attack and a bizarre one at that for the snavian species. After its health wheel is depleted to one-fourth or less, it will be able to breathe fire at Pikmin. The strength and range of the fire are similar to that of the flamethrower wielded by the Titan Dweevil. After the long fight is over, it is revealed that the creature was under the influence of a dark spore, which explains why this specimen acts so differently from what is known of the Burrowing Snarrow.

In Pikmin: Wrath of Mr. B, Burrowing Snarrows are similar to Burrowing Snagrets in shape, but have lighter blue scales, light gray head feathers, and, most strikingly, dark stripes on the tail and neck. These creatures are more common than Burrowing Snagrets, serving only as minibosses because they can't go underground and they move very slowly, allowing Olimar to swarm it with Pikmin until it dies.

Outdated appearance.

Family Snavian
Attacks Eats Pikmin, crushes Pikmin

The Burrowing Snarrow is a far deadlier version of the Burrowing Snagret, as it has more health and is capable of capturing more Pikmin than the latter. It also has armor on its head made of the same material as its beak, so wait until it pulls more of its long body out of the ground to crush your Pikmin, then swarm either of its exposed cheeks when its beak is stuck.
