Tatepon 2 I can explain this, great Kami! This is nothing more than… a stub.

This article is a stub. You can help the Patapon Wiki by expanding it.


Gancheeks are huntable creatures that live in desert levels in both Patapon and Patapon 2, but only appear when it's raining in the desert. A Gancheek may look like a Kacheek with a spiral, but when it are hit with a weapon, it transforms into a snail. They are completely harmless, but crawl at an incredibly slow pace. They can be a big problem while crossing the desert as they prevent the advance of the Patapons. Without strong weapons or units, it can take a very long time to beat them. A robopon or kibapon hero can be useful when killing a Gancheek because they will cause it to stagger nonstop, allowing ranged units to make quick work of it.

Although they resemble snails, they emit a bird-like cry when killed. They commonly drop seeds upon death.

In Patapon 2, it drops the Fah Zakpon hat.
