The Goliath Long Legs is the final boss of Pikmin 3:Return to the Pikmin Planet. It is found on Sublevel 20 of the Titan's Trench. Despite it's position as the final boss, it is only the SECOND hardest boss in the game.
The Mystery of Finale Forest
When Louie, Olimar, and Sagittarius reach the Finale Forest, where the thieves have hidden the president, they notice something- The ground is clawed and has footprints similar to those of the Raging Long Legs, and shed Arachnorb skin is everywhere. What's more, every creature there is dead! All captains are confused and go through several obstacles to find the source of this (and the President). At the end of the trials, they find an arena with a lone cave. The ship mentions cries of several species and a large amount of pounding and roaring. At the bottom of the cave, they see the Goliath Long Legs- The creature causing all the trouble!
The Goliath Long Legs has the appearance of a Raging Long Legs, but with 8 legs. The body is a bit smaller and is just high enough to be out of reach by swarming and the captains. The body has all the weapons, and the feet are black, which slowly turns into the brownish color of the Beady Long Legs. It changes color to represent the attack it is about to use.
This boss has several weapons like the Titan Dweevil, but there are more weapons and each weapon can only be taken off by Pikmin that are NOT immunte to it. It can also crush Piks with it's feet and it's body by crashing it down. When a weapon is off and untouched for a bit, the GLL will use it's crushing attack like it does to hurt Pikmin on the weapon to pick it back up! Once all weapons are succesfully knocked off, attack it again to remove the armor. Then finally drain the health one last time and it will be unable to attack. It will scamper around by your captain in a panic, and plop down. A timer will appear above it, and when it ends there will be a colossal explosion, killing all the Pikmin in the arena. Be careful!
This is a lighter fluid container with matches strung around it. It will douse some matches and toss them all around, making a random position (think Shock Therapist). It is somewhat hard to avoid, and it sends out more after losing half it's health. The matches can be taken as treasure after the flames die down.
This weapon is one of those big Super Soakers you would buy when you were young. It will shoot out a large amount of water in a wavelike fashion, rotating like the Flare Cannon. Blues can not be used to take this off. When it has half it's health it will move farther.
This weapon appears to be some kind of bomb. It is purple and there is a big smiley face on it. It sends out three large streams of poison, and when it has half it's health it will widen the streams. When viewed in the treasure hoard, you can see that is says "U.S. Army" on it.
The power plug is an electrical outlet with a key in it. Yes, you heard right. A key. This weapon will move the key, causing wires to fly everywhere. The wires will connect to each other like the electric caverns in caves, only there are more that will be wider. This is a very hard weapon to take off.
This weapon is the easiest weapon, and is more of an annoyance than a danger. It will blow a big gust of wind, knocking off flowers and blowing Pikmin over. It appears to be a giant fan.
The acid pipe appears to be a sewer drain that leaks acid. When the GLL walks around and uses this weapon, it will leak acid behind it. Since acid kills Pikmin on contact, you should be very careful. When at half health it will move more rapidly while using this.
The freeze slider appears to be a mini fridge, though smaller than standard ones. When it opens, four blocks of ice will slide out. When they hit walls, they will split into two smaler pieces. This repeats until it is too small to see.
The Villainous Justice is a (or at least appears) to be the torso, head, and arms of a toy robot, like the Forged Courage and the treasure from the Pileated Snagret. It can shoot bullets like the Man-at-Legs out of both it's arms in different directions, so it can hit two captains at once. Avoid this weapon at all costs.
In addition to all this, the GLL will sometimes shake off a bomb-rock or Mitites during or before an attack.
This Article or Image Relates to the Non-Canon Game,Pikmin:Redemption, created by Sir Pikmin.
In Redemption this is known as a Goliath Dweevil.
Picture, if you will, the cross between a Titan Dweevil and a Raging Long Legs. Now give it six legs, a set of two wings, six weapons, and make it ¼ of a Titan Dweevil larger. That is what this looks like.
The creature throws out a very shiny treasure in the direction it is facing. You mat want to have your pikmin grab it, but that would be bad. It is electrified so any non-yellow pikmin get killed. At half health when thrown it produces an electrical shock wave that can kill pikmin, but there is a 25% chance that it will only stun your pikmin.
The GLL pulls out and activates a small fan. The problem is that once activated it grows into a big fan and you are trapped inside of it. While avoiding the blades you must carefully throw a pikmin into the motor in the center of the fan where all of the fan blades meet. At half health the blades spin slightly faster and motor is electrified.
It picks up a mini water faucet that you would find in your sink. Water shoots out of the ground and into the bottom of the faucet. The faucet begins to rumble and shoots out high-density balls water at your pikmin, killing them instantly.
The second time you fight one of these it carries weapons that are fun to watch and destroy.
