Attacks Hits Pikmin and leaders

The Fishmin is a Pikmin-like enemy appearing in Pikmin: New World. It is about the same size as a Hermit Crawmad and looks a lot like a large Pikmin except it doesn't have a leaf, bud, or flower on the end of its stalk and its body is light pink. The Fishmin also has no facial characteristics like a mouth, nose, or ears. It has shorter arms that somewhat resemble a fish's fins and it has legs that resemble a fish's tailfin. It swims in water by turning on its side and wagging its tail-like legs. These enemies are usually found alone.

It usually swims until it sees a Pikmin or a leader, where it will dart to the water's edge and then jump out to vigorously swat its targets with its stalk. It can only kill one Pikmin at a time with this attack, but it is done very quickly and in rapid succession. As soon as it comes onto land, swarm it with Pikmin group from the front very quickly so that it doesn't have any time to attack. Throwing Pikmin at it is less effective, as it has an easier time shaking the Pikmin off. Once the Pikmin are on, it will have a very hard time shaking them off and will shake its body wildly. Once there are at least some Pikmin on it, chances are it will go down quickly. Leaders can attack it too, but it takes much longer. Fishmin can be annoying to defeat, but they can drop nectar or sometimes a spray when it dies. It does not leave behind any remains and instead disappears into a spirit that looks similar to an actual Pikmin's. It also makes noises that sound very similar to a Pikmin's but are very high-pitched.


Olimar's notes

This creature's internal structure had once led me to believe that it was an actual relative of the pikmin family. However, the elongated stalk sprouting from its cranium is in fact a wild extension of its backbone to give it more control over its bodily functions and motor capabilities. This may be why it manages to swim so smoothly and swiftly despite its clumsy-looking appearance. Its stalk has caused much controversy about how it should be classified. DNA tests may perhaps hold the key to its origin.

Louie's notes

No simple fillet is enough to bring out this beast's taste to its full potential. Specimens must be removed of their bones and skin and then split open with a knife. Remove their innards and then slice the creature into bite-sized nuggets. Cover it in grated lime and then dunk in chocolate mouse. A great way to appreciate this creature's lustrous taste in harmony with warm, fresh chocolate.

Sagittarius' notes

It is very fussy about its underwater habitat. Any unwanted rocks, decorations, or toys will be removed from the aquarium by force. Though it can be fussy, old child's toys and even some junk will keep this inquisitive beast happy and entertained, as well as encourage good behavior in it. Increased fussiness probably means that it is bored and needs more or new toys in its aquarium. It could also mean that it is not receiving its required amount of nutrition or is becoming sick, in which case it should be taken to a vet.

Libra's notes

No fashion designer would be caught dead wearing this. It is a hideous shade of pink and smells like filthy tuna. Beasts like this are for spreading across a cracker and eating, not for spreading across your body and wearing!
