The Demon's Claw is a horrifying creature appearing in Pikmin: New World as the boss of the Hallow of Fire, being found on its final sublevel. It resembles a large, vaguely claw-shaped shell twisted around into a spiral. On its side, there is a large crack that two knobbly curled-up tentacles protrude through and the creature's bare skin is visible within. Its skin is dark pinkish-red, and on top of its body, there are two devilish inwardly-curved horns. The beast is impervious to fire due to its shell and its large arena is occupied by many fire geysers.
The creature is initially encountered balancing idly on the tip of its shell, wobbling back and forth on the spot, waving its tentacles about wildly to hunt. When approached by a leader, the tips of its tentacles light up bright orange, indicating that it has sensed the electrical pulses emanating from the leader's suit. Following this, it hops toward the leader it sensed and continues to move in their direction as they move away from it. The creature will follow the leader's path directly instead of taking shortcuts, so it can be tricked to gain an advantage over it. If a nearby leader is switched to, the creature will simply spin to face them and immediately begin moving towards them, ignoring the leader it was just pursuing. However, if a more distant leader is switched to, the Demon's Claw will lose interest and stop moving, the glow on the tips of its tentacles going out and it returning to an idle state. If the creature catches up to a leader, it will attack by squirting out a pitch-black adhesive from vents in its shell onto them, engulfing them and Pikmin within range and then proceeding to suck them up, though leaders are merely injured by this process. After it is defeated, it explodes into the black liquid and leaves behind only the tip of its shell, which shrinks down to a small size, and the Crusher Retardant, which grants leaders the Squash Suit, preventing harm from crushing.
