The Large Splurchin is an enemy that highly resembles a real-life urchin, as it looks like a ball with purple skin and yellow spikes. It will slowly float in a single direction and can kill any Pikmin that touch it. The Large Splurchin is completely invincible and can only be avoided. It also comes in two different sizes, although the smaller ones are much more common. Large Splurchins have very few means of moving or attacking; the most they can do is kill Pikmin that happen to touch them as they bounce back and forth.
