The Aero Snagret is a boss appearing in the game Pikmin: The After Years. It also appears in Pikmin 4 (Wii U) as the second major boss in story mode. However, in Pikmin 4, its appearance is slightly altered. It is orange colored, always stays above ground, and has two feet. In Pikmin: The After Years, this creature is like the Pileated Snagret except that it has now sprouted a pair of wings. Its feathers are now yellow and its body is red. The Aero Snagret always stays airborne unless it dives for your Pikmin.
"Another subspecies in the Snavian family, this Snagret has now developed wings unlike its predecessor, the Pileated Snagret. Its wings have given it the ability to fly. Most of the time it will usually fly, however, should its wings get badly damaged it will hop on its single foot. Its beak has grown significantly bigger, allowing it to not just attack ground-based creatures, but air-based creatures as well. Another note is that due to their aggressiveness, they have developed higher defense than other Snavians. Approach with caution!"
This specific type of Snagret can divebomb towards your Pikmin and can snatch up to ten Pikmin at once! The Aero Snagret is so high up that not even Yellow Pikmin can reach it. It is one of the many creatures in the Sky Dungeon that can fly. It has twice the health of a Pileated Snagret and much higher defense. To weaken it, you'll have to throw a Bomb-rock at its wings. It should not be able to fly for a few seconds. The Aero Snagret can also fake a dive bomb. It may occasionally drop a random colored 20 pellet.
How to Kill
Purple Pikmin can easily stun this beast when stuck in the wall. The only way to attack this creature is to stand next to a wall and make it dive bomb for your Pikmin. If successful, its beak should get stuck in the wall. Upon getting stuck, boulders will fall from the sky due to the quaking caused by the impact. Be careful though, occasionally a Bomb-rock may fall from above. If one does, grab and throw it at its wings. It is best to go with a small group of 10-15 Pikmin to ensure a low Pikmin loss.
The boss cutscene of the Aero Snagret initiates when you enter the arena. They will see three eggs, and Alph feels uneasy for the eggs are ten times as big as him! A massive Aero Snagret lands, screeching at the Pikmin and clutching its eggs. Then it flies and becomes airborne, gusting the Pikmin back. The battle begins.
Like in the Pikmin: The After Years version, it does a dive bomb. Same strategy as The After Years.
