Pinwheels are mimics that sit still until you approach, then they leap into the air and rotate their tentacles, moving sideways through the air in your direction while they slowly descend. Their behavior is similar to Jellywogs.

Tactics Edit

Tips & Attacks Edit

Aeronaut Edit

After the initial shot to the Pinwheel, it will launch itself into the air. During this time, they are vulnerable to attacks from below. Stand underneath and shoot up, retreat/repeat as necessary.

It is worth noting that due to a minor glitch, the pinwheel will not harm you if you stand to its left and allow it to drift to the ground. Whilst the Pinwheel's tentacles will appear to brush your character, the game will not register a hit. This allows for a safer, if slower method of dispatching this mimic.

Ferric Edit

Simply hit it, when it jumps up, follow it with your upward attack and double jump. If you do this correctly, the mimic will just go through you. If you are up against a wall, just stay there and keep attacking. The pinwheel should move quickly downward and go through you as you hit it.

Crag Edit

You can attack it from below with upward attacks and dodge to the side when it gets too close.
