The Bearded Amprat is a rodent-like creature that resembles a small white guinea pig with large brown spots on its face and back. Their heads are rounded with small eyes in the front and no apparent ears. As their name implies, their faces are draped in large amounts of long, straight hair which gives their face a slight resemblance to a skull. It has four, small, mouse-like feet which it uses to move around and to grab prey. Unlike the rest of its body, the feet are green with brown tips on the toes, which lack claws. Its body ends in a few small brown spots and a skinny, mouse-like tail.

Normally, the creature passively walks around its territory. When Pikmin or a leader come close, however, it will begin to rapidly rub its beard, generating electricity, which causes its hair to flare up and reveal its true face as it charges to try and grab Pikmin and eat them. This hair spikes up when they are attacked and electricity will begin to pulse through their entire body to harm all non-Yellow Pikmin. After a short period of being on the attack, or after the player leaves the creature alone, the Amprat will return to its neutral, harmless state of wandering around.
