The Spiny Coppeller is a species of scarpanid in Pikmin: Decayed Leaf. The creature resembles its original incarnation in Hey! Pikmin, although it may have different colored leaves that it uses for flight. The coppeller will fly around in a predetermined path, whether singular or in groups of up to ten. No Pikmin can attack a Coppeller, as they will be damaged and killed by their spikes, so the most that can be done to them is to avoid them. Occasionally, they can be found holding bomb rocks, which they can prime and drop on Pikmin.


Olimar's notes

Unlike most Coppellers, this species has developed a layer of large spikes over its carapace for self-defense. It's necessary when dealing with the numerous aerial predators found in this ecosystem. Although larval Coppellers do not develop their spikes, they end up growing them near their adulthood. One will probably never find a juvenile Spiny Coppeller in the wild.

Louie's notes

This creature is best seared in a veggie bowl after the spines are removed.

With these guys transporting cargo, I won't have to install any safety precautions; they have built-in armor!
