The Fireflinger Groink is a fish-like organism outfitted with some robotic parts and is about three times as large as a leader. It looks very similar to the Gatling Groink, although it is red with yellow stripes, has less robotic elements, a melted bulletproof shield, and has glass covering its legs. They are usually stand in one place, but they have an incredibly large detection radius. It relentlessly fires large fireballs by extending a mouth-like turret, and when a fireball hits, it can kill Pikmin and damage leaders. The player can anticipate the spots where their fireballs will land by the preceding beam of light.
