The Stony Flint Beetle is a large gray flint beetle with two stalks that are both tipped with yellow eyes. It has four legs, and its hind legs are much larger than its front ones. The Stony Flint Beetle is about two times the width of a leader, although it is often standing on its front legs, making it two times taller. It also has a pair of wings that are only visible when it opens its exoskeleton to fly. It will push any nearby objects, such as metal blocks, using its strong legs, an action that can crush Pikmin and leaders. It will continue trying to push even if Pikmin are trying to move it in the opposite direction. Once the object reaches a wall or falls in a gap, the beetle will fly away. It will also fly away in retreat to escape being crushed itself.
