The Medusal Slurker is an enemy from Pikmin 3. It was the first new enemy fightable in the E3 2012 demo. It is a floating, translucent pink jellyfish-like enemy with two small serpentine eyes and a single antenna sprouting from its top that resembles a seeding dandelion. It has a green pouch inside its head to store food. This pouch has an uvula-like appendage hanging from it, which it extends to the ground and expands to trap Pikmin and leaders. It is first fought in the Garden of Hope, and defeating it will free the Rock Pikmin it had in its body, allowing the player to use them.

Medusal Slurkers can be found with a variety of things within them, including previously-trapped Pikmin, Bomb-Rocks, and Fruits. Most notably, the one found in the Tropical Wilds conceals a Juicy Gaggle.
