The Waterwraith is an enemy from Pikmin 2's Submerged Castle cavern. The creature in question looks like a transparent frog on two giant stone rollers. The Waterwraith terrorized Olimar and Louie when they were in the Submerged Castle by coming down when a certain time limit has passed (Five minutes). Moreover, the creature was invincible when attacked upon, and the only way to beat it was in the final sublevel. Its name is a combination of water, due to its watery appearance, and wraith, another word for ghost.
 How to defeat
You must have some Purple Pikmin to kill this, found in the Violet Candypop Buds on the final floor. Throw them on its back when it rolls around, and it will turn purple, and freeze. It's HP will fall freely now when attacked, and it may only take two times of this to beat it. When you have all of its HP down, its rollers will break, and it will revive again, with all HP. Fear not, since it can't attack, and it only runs around. Use the same tactic from above, for when it gets tired. Beat it, and you get the Professional Noisemaker which becomes the power-up, The Pluckaphone.
There are several glitches in Pikmin 2 involving this beast. One of them is in the Piklopedia (and sometimes the main game as well). When the waterwraith's rollers start to fall, press Z or 2 to petrify them. Then the rollers will become petrified. As soon as the waterwraith lands press Z or 2 again, and the waterwraith will become petrified. Wait until the rollers unfreeze, and the waterwraith is still frozen, and when the waterwraith is about to break out petrify the rollers again. The waterwraith will unfreeze and try and lift the rollers, and fail.
"All that is known about this creature stems from a few sightings deep underground. All reported sightings feature the same core sets of details: a giant, vicious form with a clear, hazy sheen not unlike hard candy. One theory holds that it may be the ectoplasmic incarnation of a kind of physic phenomenon, but as is usually the case with such theories, it is very difficult to prove. All witnesses report being suddenly overcome with fear upon sighting the creature, approaching a state of panic and near insanity. In fact, every report contains an inordinate amount of extremely vague details, which has led to suspicions that exhaustion and fear have caused some simple natural phenomenon to be viewed as a living creature."
"Inedible. Known to cause mass hysteria, followed by leg spasms and internal thunderings. "
