The Skutterchuck has many insectoid features, such as 5-jointed hindlegs and a pair of antennea. It also has 2 yellow cephlapodean eyes. Its head appears to be concave, allowing it to hold the pebbles. If Pikmin continue to attack it after there are no more pebbles for it to pick up, it will thrust itself upward to launch the attacking Pikmin high into the air. When it dies, it flips over and curls its legs in the same stereotypical fashion most insects die.
While it does not appear to be able to kill Pikmin on its own, be aware that the pebbles it can toss can crush non-Rock Pikmin or damage the Captains. A single Rock Pikmin thrown onto it while it is unprotected is enough to kill it instantly.
- It is possible to make a Skutterchuck kill itself if its rock lands back on it.
- If all Crystal Nodules in an area are destroyed, the Skutterchucks will not respawn.
- Technically the Skutter Chuck could be considered harmless, because without the pebbles it cannot hurt pikmin.
