The Bumbling Snitchbug is a monster in Pikmin 2 for Nintendo GameCube and New Play Control! for Wii. This monster was not in Pikmin. This monster is kind of like its relative, the Swooping Snitchbug but the bumbling grabs Olimar, Louie or President. The Swooping Snitchbug grabs pikmin, and plants them in a different location. The bumbling snitchbug grabs the captains, then throws them to the floor doing a heavy amount of damage. This monster can only be under ground, and is in several of challenge levels. He has two "arms" so it can grab two leaders at once. Sometimes it can throw captains off the cliff, leading to a glitch.


Olimar's Notes

"This is a variety of snitchbug. Its most interesting characteristic is that it likes to snitch leaders. Yet barring wanton carelessness or incompetence, leaders are not easily captured. Any leader caught by this creature is clearly an idiot, which is why this creature is also known as the exposing snitchbug. There are several known varieties of snitchbugs, but research has stagnated despite it being such an interesting species."

Louie's Notes

"Remove the wings and discard the remainder of the beast. Enjoy the luxurious, wafer-thin wings with fine water-dumple caviar."
