Pikmin: The Arachnorbs Strike Back is a fanon Pikmin game made by SwordsmachineGaming352. It has a soundtrack. Glow Pikmin can't be taken underground, and Bulbmin return. There are no Purple and White Onions due to a Beady Long Legs destroying them.


Olimar watches a Stamping Long Legs crush his S.S. Dolphin, and dies afterward. Louie wishes to avenge his death, and with the Rescue Corps, tries to fend off the endless armies of arachnorbs that usually stay in arachnorb safeplaces, which are caves infested by the creatures. At the end of each sublevel is a Beady Long Legs that is now a cyborg version of itself.


On Hocotate...

Chacho: "Louie!! I need you to go to that planet and try to find Olimar! Our business is losing money like a sinking ship!"

Louie: "..."

Back on the Pikmin Planet...

Beady: "Okay, men... We better get the weapons and defenses ready... Because I think another person is going to crash land on the planet..."

Louie crashlands.

Hocotate ship: "LOUIE! Are you OK? I can't believe that you survived that crash landing!"
