Dark Urchools are stationary sea urchin-like enemies that appear in the Umbral Ridge. They appear in rows in corridors or in scattered groups and are initially docile and harmless so long as they are illuminated. When the lights go out as they do in the Umbral Ridge, the Dark Urchools awaken and extend their sticky tentacles, and Pikmin that get too close to them in this state will be snatched up and eaten. Simply wait for the lights to turn back on and they will return to their dormant state, allowing Pikmin to attack them, but be sure to call them back before the lights turn off again. Dark Urchools do not leave corpses.
