The Clicking Slurker (コツリタラシ?, lit.: "Young Angling Dribbler") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. This creature looks like a real-life jellyfish. It has a feather above its head and a long, pink appendix that resembles a tongue, linked to a pink ball that stands inside of its translucent body. Although its actual body is about the size of Captain Olimar, its feather is about two times his height, and its appendix can extend up about ten times his height.

It resembles a much smaller and weaker version of the Luring Slurker, although it is more blue, only has one feather, and doesn't have a mouth in its proboscis. It also looks much rounder than most umblodae, including the Medusal Slurker.

It is only found in area A of sector 7, Freezing Wasteland.

Behavior[edit]

The Clicking Slurker remains stationary high above ground, waiting for Pikmin to pass below it. At that point, it drops its tongue to catch them. If a Pikmin is caught, it can be released by hitting the tongue. With continuous hits to the tongue, the creature drops to the ground and can be damaged. When one is defeated, it is quickly replaced by another one that will descend to the same spot as the last one.

Locations[edit]

  • Snowfall Field
    • Freezing Wasteland: This is the only area that they are found in. They are scattered throughout the area, and act as the main hazard or gimmick. There is notably one near a dirt wall, where the player must multitask between destroying the wall and attacking the creature.

Strategy[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

To defeat this enemy, the player must trick and force it to dive towards them. After avoiding the attack, throwing a Pikmin on the enemy is enough to kill it.

Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

The warm air trapped within its body keeps it floating. From the air, it drops its long tongue to catch its prey. On a totally unrelated note: Why the feather on its head? Is it for attracting a mate or something?
