The Satchel Snitchbug is a species of scarpanid found in the files of Hey! Pikmin. Its behavior is unknown, but it most likely would have eaten Sparklium seeds. Presumably, the Sparklium seeds it would have eaten would have been visible in its stomach and been recovered by killing the creature.

The Satchel Snitchbug is a small, new enemy found in Pikmin: Decayed Leaf. The creature has a very large abdomen, with a small head on the bottom front with two bulbous red eyes. The creature vaguely resembles a snail in appearance. The Satchel Snitchbug is harmless, but it slowly moves around and can ingest gold nuggets, pellets, nectar, and even small corpses it touches. The more it absorbs, the larger it becomes, and the more health it gains. It can hold onto these items for 20 seconds before dissolving them. Upon attacking a Satchel Snitchbug, it will try to slowly move away. Due to their extremely limited health and slow speed, they are very easy to kill. A single Dart Pikmin can pop the creature instantly. Cactus Pikmin also do extra damage. The Satchel Snitchbug serves more as a nuisance for those who like to take their time exploring and in combat.

The Satchel Snitchbug appears in Pikmin: Wide World as a cowardly, harmless scarpanid that frequently ingests usable items. It may be found secluded from other creatures, crawling slowly about a small territory on dry land, inching along the ground to move. A Satchel Snitchbug will avoid and move away from Pikmin, leaders, and other creatures that are close by. Visible within each Satchel Snitchbug's stomach may be a 1-pellet, the color of which depending on what main Pikmin types have been discovered, a blob of nectar, a Sparklium seed of any quality, a small fruit, or a spiderwort berry of any type.

Satchel Snitchbugs are medium-sized and possess an insectoid appearance typical of the scarpanid family. They are primarily green in color and have a small head with relatively large, oblong, red, compound eyes. Their stomach expands to accommodate its contents, becoming translucent in the process. Notably, they lack any form of limbs whatsoever, and so are forced to crawl along the ground to move.

Because of its slow speed and inability to defend itself in any capacity, a Satchel Snitchbug is entirely at the mercy of anything around it. They may be killed quickly and easily no matter the method used, but throwing a Rock Pikmin at one or throwing a Purple Pikmin directly on top of one will kill it instantly. Upon death, a Satchel Snitchbug will yield HP Sparklium icon.png × 1 and spit up the contents of its stomach. Because it is never found aboveground, its body can be taken to the Lander Pod to either receive P3 Poko icon.png × 2 or be stored to later gain four seeds of a chosen discovered main Pikmin type of choice from the Master Onion, but only if the cave is exited using an escape geyser.


Olimar's notes

Only found underground, the satchel snitchbug is a helpless, harmless scarpanid that carries food it finds in its stomach until the process of digestion takes place. It prefers to stay away from other lifeforms, regardless of whether they are hostile or harmless.

Shacho's notes

This creature reminds me of home, where I keep my Pokos in sacks for safekeeping. The big differences are that those pouches are brown and don't normally move on their own.

Marie's notes

Satchel snitchbugs make for fine pets because they are so docile. They are a bit timid, but gaining enough of their trust negates that issue. They much prefer nutrient-rich meals over any other.

Louie's notes

Its elastic stomach is the tastiest but chewiest of the creature's edible matter. Best served raw and fresh after cleaning it.

Dolphin Lander's notes

Even through the sheer complexity of the lifeforms of PNF-404, the satchel snitchbug seems to live the simple life and does so in the most adorable way possible.
