–Ortho, upon rescuing Pummel Weed
Pummel Weed is the first of ten Elemental Warriors that Kameo regains, when she rescues his Elemental Sprite from the Shadow Trolls. He is a boxer that resembles a Venus flytrap, and he jabs Trolls and other enemies, making him a useful warrior for combat. He is one of the three elemental warriors that Kameo uses when first charging Thorn's Castle at the beginning of the game.
Using the left and right triggers, Pummel Weed preforms jabs and can do a combo ending with an uppercut.
By pressing both the right trigger and left trigger at the same time Pummel Weed goes under ground and can avoid most attacks from above, when hit while doing Weed Creeper Pummel Weed comes back up and takes the damage. You can also use this move to get under fences and gates blocking your way.
While doing Weed Creeper, if you press the left trigger Pummel Weed can go under special shells which can do various things, like exploding when you ram them into something or hurting enemies when you bump them.

While underground, if you press the right trigger Pummel Weed comes up and does a huge uppercut from the ground.

Razor Top (costs 2 elemental fruit)
An upgrade to Pummel Weed you are able to buy with elemental fruits.
