|First appearance||Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (1992)|
A Pikku is a leech-like enemy that appears in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and is found only in the final stage of the Pumpkin Zone, where the Witch is fought. There are only two Pikku found in the level. The Pikku simply hop back and forth, getting in the way of Mario. It can be defeated with a single stomp.
Pikku resembles the severed tail of a newt or lizard, especially considering its place in a witch's house, as well as the presence of various jars in the level. In the Kodansha manga, one makes an appearance as the detached tail of the Witch's reptilian form.
Tribe: Ghost clan
Game appearances: Land 2
Just the feet alone are coming alive.
It looks like a leg of an octopus that has been cut off. Like a live fish, it is still flopping around even after being cut off. Its movements are erratic, so be careful when stomping on it. It can also be defeated by fire.
