The Skitter Leafs older brothers, in contrast with the harmless variety, these guys are more than willing to eat Pikmin should they get close enough. Unlike the normal variety, these guys looks like dried up leafs.

The Skitter Leafs Skitterleaves' older brothers, in brothers. In contrast with the harmless variety, these guys are more than willing to eat Pikmin should they get close enough. Unlike the normal variety, these guys looks like dried up leafs.



* ElementalPowers: Their family's gimmick. Each dweevil type is associated with an element it can manipulate to attack your Pikmin: Fiery Dweevils breath fire, Anode Dweevils generate lightning, Caustic Dweevils shoots jets of water[[/note]]acid, technically[[/note]] and Munge Dweevils breath clouds of poison gas. Fittingly, their KingMook the Titan Dweevil can manipulate all four elements thanks to four treasures it has gathered.

The final boss of Pikmin 2 and the largest creature in the game. The Titan Dweevil is a gargantuan member of the Dweevil family, and just like them, it loves carrying treasure on its body. It is carrying at least 5: A water faucet, a gas burner, a stink bomb, an electrical device, and Louie himself. It is also able to use four of the treasures as weapons when attacked. Why this is is up for speculation: Maybe it was a freak occurrence? Maybe its genes have been altered due to contact with these treasures? Is it possible that Louie is controlling the insect?

underground, but besides that it's basically an ice-themed Red Bulborb.



* RevivingEnemy: When "killed" in the sequel, they will instead begin to slowly heal. If their health bar fills back up all the way, they will stand right back up and resume devouring, even if it was being carried by Pikmin. The only way to ensure its destruction is to return it to the onions/ship pod before it can revive itself, trick it into falling into a pit, or destroy it while it is paralyzed, shattering its corpse. Thankfully, this feature was removed in Pikmin 3.

The Fiery Bulblax is an unusual species in that it secretes a wax that is flammable. It seems content with sleeping while it is on fire, but using Pikmin other than red ones is suicidal... Unless you can lure it into water.

* EliteMook: Of the Adult Bulborbs, as it has healing properties abilities and the element of fire.is shrouded in fire, burning any non-Red Pikmin that attack it.



This creature appears to be a Bulborb, but it is growing a leaf on its head. It is in fact a parasitic Pikmin known as a Bulbmin. This particular kind of Pikmin has sprouted on the back of a young Bulborb and has mostly taken over its nervous system. They are often followed by young Bulbmin, which you can claim as your own if you defeat the savage parent.

A bug that flies by using its antenna due to losing its original wings over its evolution. As the same suggests, it swoops down onto Pikmin groups and snatches two at a time. After a while, it gets bored with them and throws them to the ground, replanting them. This behavior is only mildly annoying, so you should repay it with swift death. In Pikmin 3, they gain the Bumbling Snitchbug's ability to capture captains.

* AirborneMook

to:

* AirborneMookAirborneMook: Like Swooping Snitchbugs, they're airborne more often than not, unless they're strafing your group to make off with your captain.



* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: If they manage to throw a captain to the ground, it is going to ''hurt''. He'll be fine if he breaks free himself or is released due to the Snitchbug getting its ass kicked by his buddy's Pikmin, though.

* BadAss: Upon crash-landing in the Garden of Hope, she not only lands on completely solid matter as opposed to [[SoftWater Alph or Charlie]], but survives consecutive nights on the surface after landing. This is ''nights'', a period of time virtually unsurvivable by any means. Unlike [[spoiler:Charlie, who is almost immediately eaten]], she survives in the open, though behind a crystal wall, and even then there are enemies nearby that can ''break'' crystal. [[spoiler:Though this happens again later when she is split off upon entering the Distant Tundra, that time she takes refuge in a cave without any enemies in it.]]

* DeathOfAThousandCuts: In the rare cases where you need to kill a breadbug but there's nothing left to tug-of-war over, you can kill it ''very'' slowly by throwing Pikmin on it, but as this is a huge waste of time it may be easier to just do other stuff and wait for enemies to respawn another day to restock corpses.

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: If you destroy its claw, it'll try to run away instead of actively trying to attack you, and will only counterattack with bubbles to buy itself time.




to:

* NoSell: Can easily counter most tactics used to take down enemies. Charge it? It'll lift itself out of reach and slam pikmin into grabbing range. Throw pikmin? It'll use its claw to block frontal attacks. Bomb rocks? [[InvertedTrope They look quite delicious]] [[FeedItABomb where it's concerned]].
