Gancheek, (A.K.A. purple snail) are creatures that live in desert levels in both Patapon and Patapon 2. They look like snails with a purple spiral on it's body, and only appear when it's raining in the desert. They may look like a Kacheek with a spiral, but when they are hit with a weapon, they transform into a snail and slowly crawl away. They can be a big problem while crossing the desert as they are very slow, preventing the advance of the Patapons. And without strong weapons or strong Patapons, it can takes very long time to beat them. Even though they resemble snails, they have a bird like cry. In Patapon, it drops the Fah Zakpon hat.
