The Formidable Toxicrab is the boss of Poison Pit in Pikmin: The War of the Pikmin Planet. It is abnormally large for its species, and it has many attacks. Like all Toxicrabs, it shoots fire and poison out of its mouth, and it can crush your Pikmin with its pincers. Also, when it starts to flash red, run away, as it tries to suck in anything that is close to it, however, it is vulnerable afterwords. When its health is low, it burrows into the ground, then pops up at another place, allowing it to ambush or corner Olimar. To damage it, you must attack its exposed head.

Olimar's Notes[edit]

  • Formidable Toxicrab
  • Crustacto Grandia
  • Toxicrab family

This large species of Toxicrab appears to be a leader among its kind, commanding large groups of Digging Toxicrabs to hunt for food. However, it does not merely sit back and watch its underlings hunt for it, as it brutally attacks any prey that wanders into its territory. All Formidable Toxicrabs are known to be ruthless and cruel leaders, going as far as killing its own underlings if they are considered incompetent. Therefore, it appears that Digging Toxicrabs follow their leader out of fear, rather than respect.


  • It is speculated that the Formidable Toxicrab is some sort of mutation. This is supported by its demented eyes and distorted roars.
