Boss 5 - Quaggled Mireclops - Platinum Video

Points for Success

  • Time Required for Platinum Medal: 3:00
  • Your first move should be to set your spare captains on the nearby buried Pikmin.
  • Your second move should be to use the Nectar eggs behind where you start.
  • Charge the Mireclops’ feet to cause it to collapse.
  • On the second phase (post crystal) wait for the ‘lid’ to give a hop before initiating a charge; do not charge before this signal. The hop signals the Mireclops’ tongue scoop, but if you get on the lid just before he starts this attack then you will deal uninterrupted damage.
  • Leave other captains away from the Mireclops then, when it lifts up, swap to controlling one of them so you have no downtime when the first captain is flung clear.
  • In phase two (post crystal) it’s possible to kill the Mireclops in two drops. Make this your target.
