Rock Pikmin are the seventh type of Pikmin announced for the Pikmin series, found in Pikmin 3 and first seen at E3 2012. Their appearance is unlike that of most other Pikmin: their bodies consist of a roughly-shaped piece of rock with transparent appendages, and their flowers, along with Winged Pikmin, are indigo instead of pink or white.
Rock Pikmin are first discovered at the Garden of Hope as the third type of Pikmin encountered in the game, found inside a Medusal Slurker. Once the Medusal Slurker is defeated, they can be used to free their Onion from a Crystal Nodule, allowing more Rock Pikmin to be grown. At the end of the day, as with other Onions, it will merge with the Red Onion.
Rock Pikmin are capable of breaking hard objects, including a type of gate that appears to be made of crystal, the shell of the Armored Mawdad boss and the Peckish Aristocrab, and Crystal Nodules. They are also immune to brute force attacks; if they are crushed, they simply get stuck in the ground and come out of the ground shortly after, and are immune to piercing and impaling attacks. They are powerful Pikmin when attacking because of the damage they do on collision with the enemy; however, unlike most varieties of Pikmin, they cannot latch onto the enemy, and instead repeatedly ram into the enemy afterwards. Occasionally, they will make a harder impact on the enemy, which may cause them to flinch. Rock Pikmin, like all other kinds of Pikmin, are able to carry bomb-rocks.
