The Cephalorock is a spit-shot appearing in Pikmin: The After Years as the sixth boss, initially encountered on sublevel six of Grassy Gulch and later fought again in Remembrance Ravine. It is a giant octopus-like creature that has blue skin, disturbing red eyes, four tentacles, and wears a cap made of grassy soil with some flowers growing on it.

When Pikmin and leaders enter its lair, the Cephalorock immediately erupts from the ground and begins spitting high-velocity boulders at them. Although initially stationary, the Cephalorock can not be hurt until it is stunned and then tripped, which is done by throwing a Pikmin at its mouth as it inhales to spit out a boulder, temporarily lodging it inside and making the Cephalorock dizzy, and afterward having ten Pikmin or one Purple Pikmin pull on each of its four tentacles simultaneously to force it to the ground, where Pikmin can be thrown at it. After some time, the Cephalorock will recover, stand up, continue its onslaught, and, should enough harm be inflicted upon it, also begin moving about its territory. Furthermore, after reaching half-health, the Cephalorock will start producing and throwing up to four bomb rocks at a time.

The Cephalorock also has a dark matter-infused variant, which is known as the "Dark Cephalorock". The Dark Cephalorock appears only in the Galactic Warpzone, the final cave, and it is a much stronger version of the Cephalorock that has much more health, faster and deadlier attacks, and the ability to use a new, unique attack in addition to its existing ones.
