Lurchthorn (トツコツ Totsukotsu) is a fish-like enemy from the Kid Icarus series. This string of cannons lies in wait until an enemy draws near, at which point it activates and speeds through the air. The five turrets located on its joints can be destroyed, but targeting its head is the most effective strategy.
Lurchthorns are rare enemies in Smash Run. When they appear, they have a head and five cannons. They launch projectiles from the cannons, although they do not fire all cannons at once. It is advised to go for the head as it will weaken the whole monster compared to destroying the cannons one at a time. When the head has been dealt with enough damage, the Lurchthorn will instantly die and any cannons that were not destroyed will drop items.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's... some kind of giant fossilized fish. Lurchthorns fly around, shooting at anyone who strays too close. Each of its segments attacks separately, so the more it has, the more dangerous it is. To get rid of it quickly, take out the head--that'll kill off the entire Lurchthorn in one go!
