"So big, it needs capital letters. When it rolls into a ball, its shape just begs for it to be dribbled."
Battle Memory

The HUGE Pillbug is an enemy in Mother 3. First found in the Candrum Underpass in Chapter 3 by Salsa and Fassad, it can be avoided by simply driving over it with the Pork Bean. It drops a Nut Bread 30% of the time.

When approached and touched, the Pillbug will curl into a ball and remain that way. This makes the HUGE Pillbug one of the more harmless enemies in the game. While curled, it is very easy to engage battle with it as if it was approached from behind, making an easy battle even easier.

Its battle sound is Battle Sound 8 which falls under Code Numbers 460 for regular attack, 461 for Smaaaash! and 462 for Miss. It is the only enemy that has its battle sound.
