The Hoverbot is a robot built by the Z Syndicate in Pikmin: Shadows of the Future that functions as both a heavy lifter and an attack drone. It is a metal sphere with four downwards-pointing legs and a single red upwards-facing optical lens. The Hoverbot behaves similarly to most jellyfloats, floating in the air and sucking up leaders and Pikmin that wander underneath it. It accomplishes this using a tractor beam, and any Pikmin that are left inside the robot for too long will be electrocuted, with only Yellow Pikmin surviving. It can beam up a large amount of Pikmin at once, but they will all be freed once the robot is defeated. To defeat the Hoverbot, simply throw Pikmin onto it, preferably Purple Pikmin as they are most effective.
