This clawed arachnorb doesn’t look friendly... – The ship, upon discovering the Climbing Long Legs

The Climbing Long Legs is a species of arachnorb in Pikmin: Decayed Leaf. They resemble a large, quadrupedal spider, like most arachnorbs in its species. The creature has a large, bulbous orb that serves as its head, and four spindly legs with three segments that hold it up. Each leg has a flat foot with three sharp claws. The entire blue-hued body of the Climbing Long Legs has a texture that resembles wax or corroded metal.

The Climbing Long Legs is found within its arena, on the side of a wall, its legs folded up as it’s resting. Upon entering, the arachnorb will suddenly perk up and stand, before slamming its feet into the wall, initiating the boss fight. The Climbing Long Legs will move around the arena by lifting its leg and slamming it into the ground for movement, which can crush Pikmin. After each leg has hit the ground twice, the arachnorb will croak and lower its abdomen for a few seconds, which gives time for an attack. Due to the claws of the Climbing Long Legs, it can climb up walls and even the ceiling. The boss will walk along the four walls before going up to the ceiling, and dropping down to the ground, moving back up the wall after to repeat the cycle.

The Climbing Long Legs cannot be attacked from the ground of the arena unless Winged Pikmin are used. However, the numerous iguana pads present can be used to cling to the walls. When leaders step on the pad that’s in front of the wall, they will automatically be launched onto it and can climb down the wall to exit the pad. One pad is in the center of the arena, allowing access to the ceiling. After getting close enough, use high-arcing Pikmin like Yellow Pikmin. Iguana Pikmin are best for taking out the Climbing Long Legs. Defeating a Climbing Long Legs will grant the "Clambering Claw" achievement.

In Overlord mode, the Climbing Long Legs will drip large drops of water down onto the arena when it’s on the ceiling, which can drown Pikmin. It can also appear on the ceiling of its arena. The boss also drops a Watery Blowhog upon defeat.

Olimar's notes

The Climbing Long Legs is a species of arachnorb that has developed the ability to traverse walls. They mainly do this to run away from larger predators and traverse their environment. They tend to inhabit large trees, plants, or structures, where they can live and foster their young in higher areas. The young of the arachnorb aren’t born with claws, so they have to ride on top of their mothers to exit their territory. Thank goodness there were iguana pads around so I could get a closer look at these creatures.

Louie's notes

Inedible. Side effects of consumption may lead to excess fingernail growth and ingrown toenails.

President’s notes

I have noticed that not many beasts have the ability to climb on walls. So what if I created boots that could attach to walls to avoid these creatures? I smell an untapped market...

Overlord’s thoughts

Spiders can already do this, so it’s surprising to see the pseudo-arachnids begin to evolve into climbers. Let’s hope they don’t develop wings, too.

Attacks Crushes Pikmin

The Climbing Long Legs is a large arachnorb appearing in Pikmin: Global Breakdown. It strongly resembles a Beady Long Legs, although blue instead of orange, and with three claws on each foot. It uses these claws to climb up walls and across ceilings, ambushing prey by dropping down onto them, something it does to reveal itself when initially encountered. While a Climbing Long Legs can not crush Pikmin and leaders by stepping on them, it can pick up up to three Pikmin at once and use its claws to squeeze them to death against the undersides of its feet. As its only weakpoint is its spherical body, which is often suspended high in the air, Yellow Pikmin are usually necessary for a swift victory against a Climbing Long Legs, although when the creature ducks down to stretch any Pikmin can attack it.
