BehaviorEdit

Sparrowheads generally spawn in groups of at least 2 individuals. They remain off-screen and descend when Olimar and his Pikmin get close. They will then hover in place until they spot a target, indicated by a chirping sound. They will attempt to skewer Pikmin or Captain Olimar by flying into them.

LocationsEdit

StrategyEdit

Sparrowheads can be defeated by throwing Pikmin onto them when they are within reach, usually right before they attempt an attack.

Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

They have a rather pesky habit of appearing out of the sky to attack. They're cute up close, though, aren't they? If the S.S. Dolphin II didn't have such an aversion to bugs, I'd want to take it home with me.
