The Holdfast Barbasucker is a small enemy that spends most of its time latched onto a wall. When approached, it will spit out three-to-four spiked projectiles that remain on the ground for several seconds before extending their spikes a good distance around themselves, skewering nearby Pikmin in the process. After this, the projectiles melt away and the Holdfast Barbasucker resumes attacking unless its targets have already left its sight radius. The creature itself is easily defeated by throwing Pikmin at it, as it isn't very mobile and can only weakly shake off attackers.
