The Sporegrub is a mutated variant of sheargrub. It crawls along vines and eventually falls to the ground, where it slowly patrols. When Pikmin and leaders draw near, it releases a poison cloud in their direction.

The Sporegrub is a returning enemy in Pikmin: Decayed Leaf. The bug resembles its appearance in Hey! Pikmin. The Sporegrub can be found on thin vines hanging from a cave ceiling, or simply on the ground wandering around. If on a vine, the creature will fall off of it and immediately perform its attack when it hits the ground. No matter its position, it will try to drive away any Pikmin that try to approach it by spraying toxic poisonous gas. Any Pikmin that touch this creature will also be choked by its toxic gas. The only way to take out a Sporegrub is through the use of White Pikmin, though it can just as easily be punched to death as it has very little health.
