Shaggy Long Legs is a miniboss in Pikmin 3, and a member of the Arachnorb family. This Arachnorb has masses of long, shaggy hair covering several parts of its body. Its color scheme depends on the habitat that it dwells in. This species of Arachnorb does not stop to rest as do the rest of the members of its family. However, it does stop to shake off Pikmin, which are able to climb the Shaggy Long Legs' legs.

There are 2 variants of this creature found in the game; A black and purple variant found in the Tropical Wilds, and a black and white variant found in the Distant Tundra.

A different creature called the Baldy Long Legs is essentially the counterpart of this creature, appropriately named due to its lack of hair.

Attacks Crushes Pikmin

The Shaggy Long Legs appears as the boss of the Arctic Territory. The Shaggy Long Legs begins the fight very similar to how the Man-at-Legs and Titan Dweevil begin their fights; it rises from the ground after each individual leg has risen. Once it has risen, the Shaggy Long Legs will shake twice, causing the snow that has collected in its fur to fall to the ground below. Although the Shaggy Long Legs can wander similar to how a Beady Long Legs can, it has a new attack than in Pikmin 3: jumping up and landing somewhere else in the immediate area. This can be particularly deadly to Pikmin underneath and around its feet, as they get crushed or knocked away with their buds and flowers withering, respectively. This attack backfires on the Shaggy Long Legs, however. Its feet and lower legs will become stuck in the snow for a few moments, with its furry knees touching the ground. During this time, Pikmin may be commanded to climb its legs, remove its hair, and attack the abdomen of the gigantic spider. The Shaggy Long Legs will struggle during this stage, but will eventually free itself by jumping, crushing or knocking Pikmin away. Once in a while, if the Shaggy Long Legs has taken enough damage, it will begin to rampage similar to a Raging Long Legs. Once defeated, the Shaggy Long Legs will strongly force its abdomen into the ground, with its legs partially buried and its feet sticking up in the air. The abdomen cannot be collected for seeds.
