The Puckering Blinnow is an aquatic enemy found in Pikmin 3. They are small, colorful fish enemies that inhabit bodies of water.

These creatures usually swim passively around in water, usually in groups of three or more. When one spots a group of Pikmin, it approaches the nearest Pikmin, grabs it, and quickly swims away. If the player attacks the Blinnow, it will drop the Pikmin and try to jump out of the water to avoid being attacked. If not attacked in time, they will eat the caught Pikmin. They can also jump out of the water to catch any Winged Pikmin flying overhead, and go to the surface to catch any non-Blue Pikmin that is struggling. It is very swift in the water, but it can only grab one Pikmin at a time. These creatures have a tendency to cause caught Pikmin to launch high into the air after death, if they had one in their jaws.
