The Sputtlefish is a poisonous, squid-like enemy with a flower-like protrusion atop its head, found in Pikmin 3. These enemies can only be found underwater. They swim casually when unthreatened but upon the arrival of Pikmin, they will take an upright posture and swim towards them. They can lash out on Pikmin with their tentacles, grabbing and eating them one at a time. If attacked, one will release ink which causes Pikmin to panic for some time until they are whistled and swim away. The Sputtlefish can also gradually heal if left alone once attacked.
