Antenna Beetles are enemies in Pikmin 2 for the Nintendo GameCube and New Play Control for the Wii. This is a very weird monster, this monster can control your Pikmin. He shoots out purple mind waves, if a Pikmin is caught, they will follow it. He makes your treasure radar go crazy so you don't know if there is treasure, or where it is. It is never found above ground, only under. It can't kill Pikmin in any way.


Olimar's notes

"This creature is able to control the Pikmin by way of the peculiar frequency of its roar, but its only objective seems to be defensive in nature, as it stops Pikmin from attacking and forces them to run away. This beast prefers humid, dimly lit environments, and has been known to inhabit empty and discarded containers. For this reason, it's wise to thoroughly ventilate any specimens that are recovered. Lifting off with one of these creatures in the hold can lead to a rupturing of the specimen during decompression, resulting in an explosive mess."

Louie's notes

"Extract meat from the exoskeleton and sear on all sides in a hot wok to seal in the flavor. Top the dish off with a splash of spicy peanut sauce."
