The Armored Cannon Beetle is the adult stage of an Armored Cannon Larva. It is a large, black, almost shiny beetle with a thick, rounded shell of armor and a blowhole above its head. It attacks by inhaling through this opening and subsequently firing a rolling rock from its mouth that travels in a straight path, which crushes any small creature in its path and only stops when it hits a wall or another enemy. To defeat the creature, one must attack its abdomen: attacking other parts of the creature won't damage it.

Pikmin 3 (Flish Edition)

Armored Cannon Beetles are found in Pikmin 3 (Flish Edition), although the larvae are absent. They're significantly easier to defeat and can often be found as a regular enemy. Their seed worth is also only 20 now.

Pikmin: Ultimate Doom

Ultimate Doom
This article contains information that relates to the non-canon game Pikmin: Ultimate Doom by Wraith.

The Armored Cannon Beetle is a miniboss in Pikmin: Ultimate Doom, but its larva is absent. The Armored Cannon Beetle is much stronger in Pikmin: Ultimate Doom. It will stomp on the ground, stunning all Pikmin within the radius of the tremor. It quickly shoots out a boulder to crush stunned Pikmin. It can also go into a rampage mode and run around. If it brushes up against a Pikmin while in rampage mode, that Pikmin begins to panic. Then it shoots its boulders at the panicking Pikmin.


Pikmin: Dimensional Breach

The Armored Cannon Beetle and its larvae reappear in Dimensional Breach. The Armored Cannon Beetle retains its stomp and rampage attacks from Ultimate Doom, but otherwise it remains unchanged from its appearance in the original Pikmin. A single Armored Cannon Beetle guards the Green Onion in the Tundra of Repose.
