Tadpole Threshers are adolescent threshers, and consequentially are one of the weakest variations.
Tadpole threshers can attack by flinging small spikes from a pair of tentacles, or lashing at a nearby enemy. Like other threshers, they travel by burrowing through the ground, however unlike the larger varieties, Tadpoles occasionally breach in combat. They cannot be harmed while completely underground.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Leech Threshers.
- In Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Young Threshers.
