Unlike the members of the opposing gender, the Female Sheargrubs are scavengers and do not attack the Captains, nor Pikmin. Their behavior, along with their light pink color and relatively small jaws make the most distinctive differences between the males and females.

These creatures are also related to the Shearwig.


Olimar's NotesEdit

The males of this species are purple and black creatures with tapered mouths, while the females are lighter in color and lack an armored exoskeleton. As with most mandiblards, these creatures have regressed to the point where they have lost both legs and wings. They can be seen crawling around on the ground and are believed to feed on the vegetable extracts from the congealed fluids of expired Pikmin.

Louie's NotesEdit

For an unforgettable quiche, slice this creature up and mix with four eggs, two vine-ripened tomatoes, dried zucchini, and generous handfuls of feta and swiss. Bake until crusty and golden. This beast is most flavorable if caught and cooked just after laying its eggs.

Killing strategiesEdit


A group of female Sheargrubs

Female Sheargrubs are cannon fodder and can be defeated with ease by either the Pikmin or Olimar. There is no threat at all. Leading them into water will also deplete their health.

In fanon-gamesEdit

In PR these are more evolved and can fly for brief periods. They are still cannon fodder, though.
