The Burrowing Snagret (ヘビガラス, Snake Crow) is an enemy from the Pikmin series.
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 a strong enemy and occasional boss that attacks by ambushing prey from underground and pecking at anything within reach. Though there are related species that fully emerge from the ground to chase their prey, the Burrowing Snagret chooses to remain at least partially buried at all times. 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.
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.
The Burrowing Snagret appears once again as a trophy, but only in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
As an Assist Trophy
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 this routine several times before disappearing. Although it cannot be grabbed and has flinch resistance, it can be stunned and left open for punishment, and is one of the many Assist Trophies that can be KO'd. Training Mode describes its Assist Trophy: Pecks at opponents with its beak. It cannot appear on Brinstar Depths, Mute City SNES, Pilotwings, Pokémon Stadium, Spirit Train, and Venom.
