The Crammed Wraith (ニセシャコモドキ?, lit.: "Fake Pseudo Mantis Shrimp") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It is a large, purple, snail-like creature with four spotted arms and green eyes. It attacks by pushing Olimar and Pikmin backwards with a tall shell on its back.
The Crammed Wraith will sit idly, blocking a path, until it detects Pikmin approaching. It will then walk backwards quickly to push the Pikmin away from their destination, denying them access of wherever it is blocking.
The Crammed Wraith can only be defeated by throwing Pikmin over its shell and landing them onto its head, where it can be damaged. Alternatively, a single bomb-rock is enough to take it out.
Hey! Pikmin logs
“This indigenous creature protects its soft innards with a hard shell. All the best food is crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Does that mean this creature is delicious? If only Louie was here.”
