The pinchipede family is a family of bosses exclusive to the uncannon Pikmin Adventure. It consists of centipede-like creatures with many different body segments, each with a purple orb that can be attacked, and two mandibles that can harm players. It only has two members, with one being much harder than the other.
The Emperor Pinchipede is a green pinchipede with a red underside in the main stages of Pikmin Adventure.
The Monochromatic Pinchipede is a white pinchipede with a black underside exclusive to the challenge stages of Pikmin Adventure.
"Pinchipede" is the name that each member of the family has, right after another word. It is a conjunction of "pinch", referring to its pincers and pinch attacks, and "centipede", the real life creature members of the family seem to be based on.
