The Large Splurchin (オオゴロンガゼ?, lit.: "Big Rolling Breeze") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It is one of the few creatures in the entire series that is completely invincible and acts more like an obstacle. It higly resembles a real life urchin, as it looks like a ball with purple skin and yellow spikes. It will slowly float in a single direction, and can kill any Pikmin that touch it. It also comes in two different sizes, although the smaller ones are much more common.

Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

The S.S. Dolphin II says that this mindless, floating creature is delicious on the inside. It hasn't told me how to get past the spikes yet to try it.
