- Main article: Peckish Aristocrab.
The Peckish Aristocrab is an enemy found in Pikmin 3 and Pikmin 4. It uses its large pincer to block incoming Pikmin throws, as well as to snatch Pikmin up to eat. Since the pincer is made of crystal, it can be broken by Rock Pikmin. Once disarmed, the creature resorts to evading Pikmin attacks and blowing bubbles to keep them away.
- Main article: Aristocrab Offspring.
A juvenile Peckish Aristocrab, the Aristocrab Offspring is not able to block Pikmin throws with its pincer but can still blow bubbles to keep Pikmin away. It may occasionally hide under the sand, leaving only its eyes visible.
The family name onionshell comes from their distinctively shaped bodies. Much like the Onions, members bare shells similar to that of an onion, with a round bottom half that loops to an enclosed stub on the top.
The family genus brachyurices is a reference to the real world group Brachyura, which contains crabs.
