Family Blowhog

The Floataswine is a seemingly aquatic blowhog found in the files of Hey! Pikmin. It is partially transparent except for its blue stripes, yellow eyes and whiskers, and red-tripped trunk. It would have apparently swum about in water, charged at leaders, and inhaled Pikmin.

The Floataswine is a relative of flying blowhogs that adapted to life in the sea, becoming a catfish-like predator. Befitting of this reversal is this large blowhog's ability to pester Pikmin with powerful inhalations rather than exhalations, sucking several of them into its tubular snout. Bizarrely, instead of eating the captured Pikmin on the spot, the Floataswine chooses to spit them away from the active leader like watermelon seeds. To Blue Pikmin, this is merely a nuisance that may reduce them to leaf state, but the beast's habit of slurping up Pikmin straight from the shore and dumping them into the water makes it a danger to other Pikmin types, which may drown. The Floataswine can also deliver a weak electric shock via its barbels, which is enough to stun nearby Pikmin and leave them at the mercy of its suction attack.
