The Arachnode is a spider-like creature that makes it's debut in Pikmin 3. These guys hide in a cocoon-like pose, and when a Pikmin lands in its web, the Arachnode devours it.

Arachnodes are the mortal enemy of Winged Pikmin, as they build their webs in the flight path of Winged Pikmin. If they're carrying back something to base and you didn't clear out the Arachnodes, you can say goodbye to your pink pals!


Enemy Information


Pikmin 3


Twilight River, Formidable Oak



Max. Carriers




America: "Call Pikmin trapped in the web with your wistle and save them!"

Europe: "To save Pikmin trapped in the web, call them with your whistle!"

From the official Pikmin 3 website:

"An eight legged creature that traps it's prey in a sticky web."


Defeating an Arachnode can be challenging if you don't know what you're doing. Here are three easy steps to defeating one:

1. Throw a Pikmin or leader into the web, immobilizing them to awaken the Arachnode.

2. When the Arachnode crawls to its prey, throw Pikmin at it! (Rock Pikmin will make quick work of them.)

3. If done correctly the Arachnode can be killed in three direct hits from Rock Pikmin and the web will fall apart, releasing all that were held captive by this creature. 19594 03:05, August 31, 2013 (UTC)
