Appearance in Pikmin 3's files.
Family Amphituber (assumed)

The Crystal Wollywog is an unused amphituber found in the files of Pikmin 3. It strongly resembles the Wollywog, although green-brown in color with a green back and a reddish-purple underbelly, orange feet with pink stripes on its toes, and yellow eyes with black, slitted pupils, the eyes of which having a white ring around them. On the underside of its body appears to be a crystal object, although where it would have been attached to the Crystal Wollywog's body is uncertain. It apparently would have behaved like the Yellow Wollywog, jumping into the air to crush Pikmin and leaders underneath it, complete with the creature inflating its throat to momentarily float in the air before landing. The crystal attached to its body would have either made Rock Pikmin necessary to defeat it or made it easier to defeat using Rock Pikmin.

Attacks Crushes Pikmin

The Crystal Wollywog is an amphituber that appears in Pikmin Eco as a replacement for the Wollywog. Unlike its unused incarnation from Pikmin 3, the Crystal Wollywog in Pikmin Eco has a stomach protected by a layer of crystal instead of a rocky mass. They behave similarly to any other wollywog; they remain stationary until leaders or Pikmin venture within range. Once they do, the creature will leap up into the air and slam down on top of either a leader or their Pikmin, crushing any underneath. Compared to the Yellow Wollywog, the Crystal Wollywog has a longer range, and it can cause more damage due to its crystal-coated stomach.


In-game entry

Once thought to be an extinct species, later discoveries of this crystalline wollywog had disproved that earlier statement. These are highly evolved for a subterranean lifestyle, and their soft skin can store water thanks to their crystalline overcoat. This same crystalline coating however makes this species much slower than other wollywogs, making their habitats limited. Some scientists believe this species evolved from wollywogs that are unable to return back to the surface, but this is still under debate.

Attacks Crushes Pikmin, produces crystal spikes

The Crystalbelly Wollywog is a type of wollywog that has a more purplish-brown color scheme and a crystal that extends out of its belly when it jumps. When it lands, it makes a shockwave of crystals that can trap Pikmin between them. If no Pikmin are affected, the crystal will protrude from its back. Breaking the crystal at such a time prevents the creature from using its crystal attack and makes it vulnerable to attack.


Olimar's notes

This amphituber can amplify the force of its jumping attacks by driving a crystalline spike normally stored within in the body into the ground. This spike is generated through the amphituber's passive absorption of minerals from water it sits in. An adult specimen’s crystal can range from one-third of my height, to around the size of the specimen. How it manages to store it and continue to function normally is beyond me, but I assume it has something to do with its squishy body.

Louie's notes

Set aside the slimy meat and extract the crystal from inside. Polish carefully to remove any traces of internal juices. Grind into a powder and add to a basic deep-frying batter. Remove the throat sac and deep fry for an amazingly luxurious, yet humble and down-to-earth snack sure to impress any discerning dinner guest, from your CEO to your in-laws.

Shacho's notes

Although you may be thinking that a creature that can produce crystals would be a great boon to the jewelry industry, that is not the case. It would ruin the scarcity of other gemstones. Do NOT let word of this creature reach Hocotate at all costs. (Or at least not until I pull my stocks out of Crystals and Curios Inc.)
