The Man-at-legs is a member of the Arachnorb family. It is a biomechanical creature, having a mostly mechanical torso sheathed in metal with four spindly legs. Three of these legs are black, organic, and spider-like, while the other one is mechanical; this makes attacking its feet impossible. Several exhaust pipes on its body continually emit smoke. Unlike most other Arachnorbs, it has no flat footpads to stomp Pikmin with, and instead relies on its long-ranged attacks and speed, quickly skittering around the room to avoid being attacked. When agitated, it stops in place, the panels of its underbelly separate and a machine gun-like weapon extends out, tracking any nearby targets via a laser sight before rapidly firing a barrage of explosive rounds at whatever it manages to lock-on to. After firing a few dozen shots, with minimal breaks in-between, it sheathes its weapon before continuing to move about. While moving, it will occasionally stand still to rest, and during this, the creature can be heard making mechanical-sounding panting noises. This boss is usually found in arenas that have raised ground that can be used as shields against the blasts.
Its interior appears to be filaments of biological matter that stretch to allow its gun to fold out. The creature is not without its flaws, though: it lets off steam with a loud hiss before it attacks, and there is a visible red laser it uses to target leaders and Pikmin, making it obvious where it's going to shoot. However, the blasts come very quickly, so the laser is not of much use when avoiding the enemy.
The Man-at-Legs is not in control of its attacks, as stated by Olimar's notes. In typical Arachnorb manner, it leaves no remains upon dying. However, instead of slowly disintegrating like its two relatives, it freezes and releases lots of steam while shaking, before exploding violently.
- “This species of the arachnorb family fuses with machinery at a crucial point in the maturation process, giving it the ability to fire energy burst from the launcher beneath its spherical torso. However, the Man-At-Legs itself is not in control of this weapon. Instead, the mechanical portions of its structure appear to automatically acquire and attack targets. The Man-At-Legs has a gentle disposition, and as a member of the arachnorb family, it has no natural enemies. It is particularly difficult to understand why this species would develop such awesome offensive capabilities, leading to rumors in the scientific community that it was the machinery that approached the arachnorb and proposed the symbiotic relationship.”
- “Although the meat is a bit on the metallic side, the oil makes a mouthwatering gravy or lubricative vinaigrette.”
