Iridescent Flint Beetles are beetles in the Pikmin series for Nintendo GameCube and New Play Control for the Wii. The Green beetle is the Iridescent Flint Beetle, the gold is the the Iridescent Glint Beetle, and the brown is the Doodle Bug. The Doodle Bug is special, as it can kill pikmin. He has some poison, which can kill pikmin, except for the white pikmin, as they are immune to poison. They all drop pellets and nectar when a pikmin lands on their back. Only the Flint beetle was in Pikmin and Pikmin 2, the other two are only in Pikmin 2. The flint beetle was a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. They can be defeated by spraying the Ultra Bitter Spray.


Reel notes

"This forager stores undigested pellets in its stomach for winter."

Olimar's notes

"Flint beetles are nocturnal, choosing to hide in the grass by day and stay active at night. These creatures keep undigested food pellets in their stomachs to sustain them through winter, but given the right stimulus they will spit them out. Recent research has revealed that these pellets are enveloped in a membrane that seals and preserves them in a sterile, airtight environment. If kept at room temperature, it seems that this pellet membrane will keep its contents fresh for up to six months. The membrane may be made from the same substance that gives the exoskeleton of the flint beetle its beautiful sheen."

Louie's notes

"An essential flavor-accentuating ingredient in gumbo and jambalaya. Also delicious in soups, broths, and marinades."

Ship Log

"This creature's hypnotic reflective body is quite hard, giving it a good defense against Pikmin attacks. Why, then, do the Pikmin chase it in such a frenzy? I wonder if it will undergo any change if I hit it directly with Pikmin..."

g shell that is also prized for its strength. These beetles are packed with nectar and pellets, which they drop when attacked. These can be collected, although the reason for doing so is unknown. Apparently, Pikmin are quite attracted to these beetles--the sight of one will send them running after it."
