The Quaggled Mireclops is a boss in Pikmin 3, it is the fifth major boss encountered in the Story Mode and the second from the Garden of Hope. It resembles a massive chunk of land (complete with plant life and crystals growing on it) that is supported by three enormous hooved legs, making it a tripedal creature. It walks around much like creatures from the Arachnorb family. When first found, the boss' only vulnerable part—its plant-like bulb near its teapot-like mouth—is encased in a Crystal, which must be broken by Rock Pikmin. When the boss stomps on the muddy terrain that makes up its entire arena, it leaves a depression that is filled with water, presenting the threat of drowning to any non-Blue Pikmin. Upon its defeat, it will relinquish the Wayward Moon and Captain Louie which is a required item to further the story.
"A gigantic creature that appears in Pikmin 3. It's so large that it has often been mistaken for a forest. It's pretty docile until its crystal head is attacked, at which point it goes on a rampage! It'll lose its balance if the hooves are attacked. Be careful though—it likes to slurp up Pikmin with its tongue."
The The Quaggled Mireclops is the largest known creature in the Pikmin series, also making it the largest boss, which is a striking comparison to the previous boss, the Scornet Maestro, which is the smallest boss.
