Behavior[edit]

The Starnacle's only purpose is to block underwater passages. Aside from that, it doesn't do anything, and is harmless. When a Pikmin is thrown at its eye, it will retract its tentacles, leaving enough room for Olimar and his Pikmin to avoid the creature and keep going in the passage.

Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

This mollusk-like creature's arms are long like an octopus's but tough like a starfish's. They withdraw when struck. The S.S. Dolphin II says he gets anxious at the sight of it, but I know better: those thin, gossamer arms are a real delicacy when properly prepared.

Naming[edit]

The name Starnacle is derived from "star" and "tentacle". Its Japanese name, タコヒトデ?, simply translates to "Octopus starfish", referring to two aquatic creatures with long arms.
