A Breadbug as it appears in the Pikmin games.
|Created by||Nintendo EAD|
The Breadbug is an enemy from the Pikmin series. Breadbugs appear in the first two games. In Pikmin one is in the Forest Navel, carrying a ship part. In both games they can be killed in two ways. The Pikmin can carry something to their onion with the Breadbug grabbing on to it, then once the onion takes the object, the Breadbug will smack it's head on the onion and receive damage. Captain Olimar can also throw Pikmin on its back. In Pikmin 2, they can only be found underground, and one Breadbug appears in 1 stage in the first Pikmin. It is a part of the Breadbug family .
"This creature's thick hide protects it from most attackers."
"The adult breadbug competes for many of the same food sources as Pikmin, but its thick-skinned hide allows it to withstand most Pikmin group attacks. However, some researchers claim to have observed breadbugs being overwhelmed by massive numbers of Pikmin and reduced to food."
"Breadbugs are hearty and nutritious but also bland and unimaginative. They may be palatable in a pinch, but they hold no true culinary promise."
"This pesky scavenger is truly annoying. It attempts to steal the spoils that the Pikmin earn in battle. If the Pikmin chase it too far, they can be dragged into its lair along with their food. It may look weak, but its appearance is deceiving."
