Toady Bloysters are slug-like creatures within the Mollusking family. They creep along the ground in search of food, and upon discovering Pikmin, they emit a loud call reminiscent to that of a cow calf, then lash out with 5 to 6 adhesive pseudopodia-like tentacles. Any Pikmin hit by the tentacles stick, and are ingested if the Bloyster is not killed before it can finish "chewing." As slow as they may be, a Bloyster is capable of causing a very large and sudden drop in the number of Pikmin a Captain has at his disposal, should he be careless enough to allow the Bloyster the chance.
The best method of taking down a Toady Bloyster is simple; latch as many Pikmin as possible onto the gill-like organ protruding from its back. If a Captain is feeling bold, they may instead decide to simply barrage the Bloyster in question with Purple Pikmin. Petrifying the Bloyster and following the petrification with a headlong assault works just as effectively as either of the two aforementioned methods, but is recommended if a Captain's Pikmin count is especially low, or if a Captain wishes to minimize any chances for casualties.
A single Toady Bloyster spawns in the Perplexing Pool, and tends to rove around the shallows near the entrance to the Shower Room. When defeated, it typically drops two 10-Pellets in addition to the gill-like organ on its back, which is worth 25 Pikmin at any Onion. Entering any of the caves in the Perplexing Pool will trigger a respawn, making this Bloyster a particularly low-risk method of spawning large amounts of Pikmin in a short amount of time, potentially 45 Pikmin per Bloyster defeated.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Olimar's Notes[edit | edit source]
This species of creature has yet to fully evolve from Shelled Mollusk to the more advanced Bloyster. Compared to the bloyster, this creature is significantly smaller. The fact that its mandibles do not protrude as significantly as the Ranging Bloyster is due in part due to the fact that like most mollusks, its vital organs are located deep within the creature's carapaces.
Louie's Notes[edit | edit source]
Pan-sear the herbs and oil until lightly crusted on the outside and rosy on the inside. Compliment the savory flavors with a light and buttery creme sauce.
In fanon-games[edit | edit source]
This article contains information that does not officially belong to the Pikmin series, and is made up by Users on this Wikia.
This is where users type in the fanon version of Toady Bloyster.
These give five less pikmin for the carcass and are a little bit easier. They are also more common above ground.
In Pikmin 3, Toady bloysters are far more common and weaker. they cannot eat purple pikmin, because they are too heavy to pull into their mouths. Ranging Bloysters still can, however.
