Attacks Crushes Pikmin

The Killer Mamuta is a subspecies of Mamuta that displays aggressive behavior. Instead of smashing Pikmin into the ground and flowering them, this type of mamuta simply crushes Pikmin by smashing them into the ground. These can be distinguished from regular Mamutas by their slightly larger size, yellower skin color, and darker arm markings. Killer Mamutas are recurring enemies; one appears in the Valley of Grief, whilst two more appear in the Rotting Cavern. Purple Pikmin are the best choice to take these out, due to their ability to stun enemies. However one must be cautious when attempting to fight one of these strange beasts, as one can be fooled by their similar appearance to a regular Mamuta, and when attempting to rush, the Killer Mamuta can quickly lay waste to an entire Pikmin squad.


Olimar's notes

The Killer Mamuta at first glance appears to be a regular Mamuta. However, when observing closely, they can be distinguished by their sandier skin coloring and black wrist markings. Much like the Mamuta, the Killer Mamuta has a strange connection to Pikmin, albeit instead of flowering them, it kills them. It is suggested that this subspecies evolved due to a sudden abnormal spike of hormones in a Mamuta–which, after breeding, brought this strange creature into existence.

Inedible. Causes explosive diarrhea.

Attacks Buries and crushes Pikmin

The Trampling Mamuta is a shepik appearing in Pikmin: Wide World. It stands alone on dry land or in shallow water, often fidgeting in irritation and taking a few steps in various directions to reposition itself in its territory. It won't pay much mind to Pikmin and leaders in its territory, but will lash out if they get too close by violently smashing them into the ground from the front. On soft terrain, this process merely buries Pikmin fully and leaders partially, but the attacks won't stop there. The Trampling Mamuta will continually pound the sprouts of Pikmin it buries with all of its strength, and after three hits, those Pikmin will die. Leaders suffer similarly, but instead of a third hit, the Trampling Mamuta will pull them from the ground and toss them far away, the leaders suffering more damage from impact with a solid surface. On hard terrain, the Trampling Mamuta will crush any Pikmin it smashes except Rock Pikmin, but leaders will still be hit twice before being thrown away. Fortunately, Trampling Mamutas deliver follow-up hits to sprouts and leaders at a slower pace than their initial hit, allowing leaders to save endangered Pikmin or themselves escape. While killing Pikmin sprouts and pounding leaders, a Trampling Mamuta will emit a horrible deep, heaving laughter. When left alone, a Trampling Mamuta will relent, and return to idling.

The Trampling Mamuta is a larger shepik covered in coarse brown hair that spikes up at some parts, mainly its back, but also has some bare patches. Its only visible facial feature is a pair of reddish, angry-looking eyes on its front. Its shoulders are two different sizes, but both arms are long and have fleshy pincers at the end. What appears to be the pattern around an Onion's equator is displayed on its wrists, though it looks tattered. On the underside of the Mamuta are clawed feet.

Engaging a Trampling Mamuta for any reason often has dire results, making leaving it alone the optimal way to deal with it. If it must be disposed of, such as if it is near a point of interest like a treasure or fruit, approaching from behind is crucial. Doing so undetected is often difficult because it moves around so much and has acute senses. Before it can notice, charge Pikmin at it and recall them as necessary before it can properly retaliate. Alternatively, distract it with Pikmin thrown on top of it before charging it. When charged from the front undistracted, a Trampling Mamuta will pound the first several Pikmin to reach it and force away the rest. Upon death, a Trampling Mamuta will tip backward, fall, and curl its arms under itself, forming a circular shape.

In ultra-spicy difficulty, Trampling Mamutas will mercilessly bash leaders instead of tossing them away at any point, leaving them almost completely immobilized and defenseless. This brutal attack often downs leaders if they are not saved soon enough.


  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #1 (all difficulties): A Trampling Mamuta will viciously pound Pikmin and leaders into the ground unprovoked.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #2 (all difficulties): Trampling Mamutas bury Pikmin at their current maturity, but will kill them after 3 consecutive pounds.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #3 (all difficulties): A Trampling Mamuta will only deliver 2 follow-up hits to leaders before throwing them away in frustration.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #4 (ultra-spicy difficulty only): Trampling Mamutas will repeatedly smash leaders into the ground, almost certainly knocking them out.

Olimar's comments

PWW Captain Olimar icon.png The trampling mamuta has a volatile temperament leading it to bouts of uncontrollable rage at even the slightest provocation. This extreme behavior is thought to be caused by the constant irritation the creature feels because of its hair.

Shacho's comments

PWW President icon.png Funny how this mamuta feels about its hair. If it hates its hair so much, I'll make a toupee out of it! Then I can have a full head of hair like I did in my youth! Might be pretty scratchy, though... Maybe I'll stick with my one magnificent curly hair.

Marie's comments

PWW Marie icon.png Trampling mamutas are so angry all the time because their hair bothers them so much. To fix that, give it a haircut! It'll feel so much better, and any bald patches it has will grow in nicely. That said, they will still be rather destructive, though involuntarily so.

PWW Louie icon.png The meat is tough and chewy, but flavorful. Best enjoyed when cut into very small pieces, but also makes for great stock!

Dolphin Lander's comments

PWW Dolphin Lander icon.png Just like some people, some animals are miserable their whole lives. But it doesn't necessarily take a major change to fix that! Shepiks are pretty smart, maybe they just need some direction.
