The Speargrub (トゲデムシ?, lit.: "Thorned Bug") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It serves as an obstacle and cannot be killed.


Speargrubs act as obstacles during puzzles that involve throwing Pikmin. They appear and out of holes in walls and move along set paths before disappearing and reappearing into other holes. They cannot be killed, and any Pikmin aside from Rock Pikmin will die if they touch them.

Speargrubs are invincible and cannot be killed. Players must work carefully to avoid accidentally letting their Pikmin come into contact with them.
