The Sporegrub is a mutated variant of Sheargrub. It's smaller than other mandiblards, about one third the height of a leader. It is mostly pink with light spots but has green menacing eyes and a brown face. Sporegrubs crawl along and climb down from vines before eventually falling to the ground, where they wander around a small area, turning around if they come to a wall. If a Sporegrub detects something it wants to attack, such as leaders or Pikmin, it pauses for a short second and releases a poison cloud. Because Sporegrubs move so slowly, they are easy to hit; a single Pikmin thrown on top of it is enough to kill it.
