The Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat (コマンマン) is an enemy in Pikmin 2. They resemble large, blue, floating jellyfish with yellow spots that float through the air. They attack the Pikmin by inhaling them and trapping them inside. The Pikmin slowly become digested one by one over considerably long periods of time, but can be saved by defeating the enemy. This creature is related to the Greater Spotted Jellyfloat.
"This native jellyfloat is indigenous to the region. Unfortunately, it is currently endangered, as its habitat is being overwhelmed by hostile immigrant species."
"Similar in taste and texture to gelatin, this jiggling mass of jelly can be sculptured into all kinds of creative shapes. As a bonus, it also doubles as professional-grade hair gel. It's the perfect cool summer treat!"
Nintendo Player's Guide
"It may be slightly less dangerous than the Greater Spotted Jellyfloat, but the lesser of the species is still a major annoyance. By attacking the beast with tossed Pikmin you can weigh it down, then swarm it with the rest of your troops on the ground."
Whenever one of these is encountered, stay out of their path and then throw Pikmin at it. If it is above your Pikmin, the Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat will begin to suck them up. If the pilots do not manage to attack it on time, it will go down and cause their Pikmin to lost when they shake. The best Pikmin to use is a bunch of Purples, because they can easily take down a Jellyfloat while non-purples will be knocked off when it is shaking. When many Pikmin are attacking the Jellyfloat, it will go down and will shake after a short period of time. Call them to avoid letting them lose their petals. When the Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat's health reaches to zero, it will spin and explode after a short period of time. Call your troops to avoid losing their flowers.
- If you listen closely, you can hear music coming from this creature. This can easily be heard in the Piklopedia.
- This creature is similar to the Medusal Slurker in the fact that they have clear bodies and keep Pikmin trapped inside of them.
- This creature bears an uncanny, but probably coincidental, similarity to UB-01/Nihilego from Pokemon Sun/Moon.
