The Caustic Dweevil is a kind of enemy in the Pikmin 2 game. This Dweevil picks up any treasure or enemy body it can find. Caustic means corrosive, and this may portend to the fact it releases water. It is a blue dweevil that when agitated by attacks, it well release a blast of water that will attempt to drown out your Pikmin. This suitably makes Blue Pikmin the best choice in battle. Also since Purple Pikmin can stun any small Dweevil, they will also work well.
The Caustic Dweevil is one member of an insect family known for mimicking objects by carrying them on their backs. Several points of differentiation with other members of the species have been confirmed, such as body color and behavioral patterns, but none of these suggest major deviations in the creature's genetic structure. This makes it clear that it is a relative of the family. When attacked by enemies, the Caustic Dweevil spits out bodily fluids in response. Space suits corrode and oxidize when they come into contact with this highly acidic liquid.
Inedible. Effects of consumption include uncontrollable arm flailing and enthusiastic dishwashing.

This Dweevil seems to be similar to Blue Pikmin in many ways. They both have a liking for water, and they both have amazing strength. Perhaps, somewhere, there are Dweevilmin! Probably not...
