The Burrowing Snagret (ヘビガラス, Snake Crow) is an enemy from the Pikmin series.


The Burrowing Snagret as it appears in Pikmin 3.

The Burrowing Snagret first appeared in the original Pikmin, serving as the basis for its trophy in Brawl. Its later design in Pikmin 3 serves as the basis for its appearances in both SSB4 and Ultimate. Within the Pikmin games, the Burrowing Snagret is an enemy and occasional boss that attacks by pecking at prey from beneath the dirt, but is revealed to have a foot, not unlike its walking counterparts, upon its defeat. In Pikmin 3, it not only pecks at both the leaders and their Pikmin, but can also pin them down and regurgitate them as a form of attack.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Burrowing Snagret makes its Smash debut in Brawl as a randomly-acquired trophy.

A member of the snavian family with a birdlike head and a snakelike neck and body. An underground dweller, the snagret makes sudden strikes aboveground to capture surface-dwelling prey. It uses its beak to scoop up daily nutrition and can snatch up three Pikmin at once—a relatively small amount made deadly by its strike speed. No one has ever seen its tail.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

The Burrowing Snagret appears once again as a trophy, but only in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Ntsc A foot-long bird doesn't sound all that large, but when you're the size of a Pikmin, a foot is massive! This member of the avian family will emerge from underground, hunting for Pikmin, its favorite snack. Act fast—or this bird of prey will prey on your poor Pikmin!
Pal A strange creature that looks like it's part bird and part snake. At 35cm in length, it's fairly small by our standards, but for Pikmin, it's a towering monster! Another thing that makes it monstrous is that it sees Pikmin as a nutritious meal. If you're not careful, it'll pop out of the ground and gobble them up before you know it!

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

The Burrowing Snagret in Ultimate.

After appearing, the Burrowing Snagret waits a short while and then starts wildly pecking in front of itself. It then burrows into the ground and reappears in a random spot (including on platforms), repeating its routine a few times before disappearing. Although it can't be grabbed and it has flinch resistance, it can be stunned and open for punishment, as it's one of the many Assist Trophies that can be KO'd. Training Mode describes its Assist Trophy: Pecks at opponents with its beak.
