The Greater Spotted Jellyfloat (オオマンマン) is an enemy in Pikmin 2 that is a member of the Jellyfloat family. As it name implies, it resembles a large, pinkish version of the Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat. This species is considerably more rare, as it is alien to the region, but its population is quickly displacing that of its smaller cousin. Greater Spotted Jellyfloats have slightly more health and can be defeated in the same manner, but can suck up more Pikmin at once, and even Olimar and Louie. It is possible for Olimar and Louie get out of the Jellyfloat quickly by rapidly rotating the Analog Stick. Likewise, all undigested Pikmin and leaders return when defeated. When Purple Pikmin are thrown, they knock the enemy to the ground, where it can be easily defeated by Pikmin swarming it.They do not have the same easteregg as the Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat.
"Vivid pink coloration is the most noticeable characteristic of this floating life-form. This immigrant species is not native to the region, having appeared to have recently arrived on wind currents. The luminescent organ in its head attracts prey, which it then sucks up and consumes with its lower orifice. Unlike jellyfish, the jellyfloat's tentacles do not have nematocysts, so there is no danger in touching them."
"Like a fine cheese, the aroma of this fluid floater can be oppressive, but its flavor must be experienced to be believed. Also makes an unforgettable nondairy spread!"
Nintendo Player's Guide
"The Jellyfloat can suck up your Pikmin and pilots, and hold them in its transparent belly. Direct your troops to keep a safe distance from the flying fiend and throw troops at its body. After you defeat a Jellyfloat, you'll have to show for it but the victims you saved."
