Scientific name Taraxacum rovinia
Family Chrysanthemum

The Creeping Chrysanthemum is a member of the chrysanthemum family that, when dormant, greatly resembles the Margaret, but can still be told apart from the normal flowers. When Pikmin or leaders get close, it will spring out of the ground at attack by attempting to eat them, although it can miss, which results in its toppling over and struggling for some seconds. It can replant itself by sucking itself into the ground until only the its flowers remain visible.

The Creeping Chrysanthemum appears in Pikmin 251. The behavior of this creature has not changed from Pikmin 2.

Notes

Olimar's observations

Despite how large and awkward this creature is, it shouldn't be underestimated in terms of power. Maybe it's just because we have to fight them without Purple Pikmin this time, but they really do seem to be more intimidating.

When thinly sliced, this predator's sizeable bulb makes a sumptuous pizza topping.

Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Creeping Chrysanthemum is conceptually unchanged in Pikmin V, but its body has been made skinnier and less squishy to behave more like real vegetable bodies. Its arm-roots support its whole body weight now, with the top and bottom swiveling around the connection point. It dips over to eat Pikmin, the rebound toppling it over if it misses instead of it hitting itself, and it shakes Pikmin off by swinging its body, throwing them all in front of it. It emerges from the ground by sticking the roots out, which then pull the body, and does that in reverse to return to the earth.

Notes

Olimar's notes

It can be distinguished from a normal Margaret because it has only the three flowers that become its face and eyes; the eyes are also visible on the flowers, even while buried. Its poor balance and elevated head make rushing its body an effective strategy to topple it.
