Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Whip Maloov is a sticky enemy appearing in Pikmin X: Deep Freeze. It is a small, gray, slimy creature that oozes across the ground after prey such as Pikmin, snatching one at a time with its long cranial tentacle and eating them. Whip Maloovs are fairly easy enemies to defeat on their own, but in groups, they can be deadly. Burr Pikmin are recommended for battles with these, as their spiky bodies make it difficult for the creature to get a hold of them.


Olimar's notes

This peculiar animal appears as boneless as a blob at first glance, but it contains a flexible cartilaginous skeleton underneath its loose skin. Characteristic of the species is the elongated appendage—actually a highly specialized tail—atop its head, with which it uses to feed on unwary prey. The creature has adapted a unique posture to facilitate this behavior, causing it to creep along using the rim of its sucker-like mouth. The sluggish movement is only a slight trade-off for this cunning ambush predator.
