The Dwarf Purple Bulborb is another Breadbug subspecies first seen in Pikmin: Connection of the Worlds and mimics the Purple Bulborb. It is usually found near Purple Bulborbs, but are sometimes independent. It's normally found in the Ancient Valley, but sometimes goes to strange habitats like the Frigid Cavern.

Appearance[edit]

It looks like a Dwarf Red Bulborb in shades of purple, but is also the size of a parent Bulbmin. Therefore, it's slightly heavier and contributes to its jumping attack.

Attacks[edit]

This foe, though small, has about 1,000 hit points (the Red Bulborb having 750) making it a bit of a battle. Its usual attack is eating, but it can eat 3 Pikmin at a time. When half of its life remains, it has a new attack: jumping. When it lands, it will kill any Pikmin underneath them. This attack can kill up to 15 Pikmin. It's also slightly faster than the Red Bulborb and more aggressive.

Strategy[edit]

Basically the same for defeating normal Bulborbs, but watch out for its jumping attack. Throwing Purple Pikmin is the best choice, as they stun it and it will be unable to do its jump. Swatting it with the captain is also a choice, but it's not recommended for best results.

Dwarf Purple Bulborbs make an appearance in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. They are about the size of an adult Bulbmin. Due to highly-developed muscles in their legs, a Dwarf Purple Bulborb's jumping attack can crush up to seven Pikmin at a time. They only appear in groups of three to seven at a time. Dwarf Purple Bulborbs tend to stay near the main path, so dealing with a group of Dwarf Purple Bulborbs may be necessary. Strangely, they make the sound of an adult Bulbmin walking upon jumping and landing. The colors of Dwarf Purple Bulborbs provide the hint to use Purple Pikmin to offer them a swift death. Dwarf Purple Bulborbs can eat up to five Pikmin at a time. Dwarf Purple Bulborbs can be seen in the Marsh Territory, standing on land and in very shallow water. They can also be seen in the Toxin Territory, scattered around in groups of two to three. Five Dwarf Purple Bulborbs appear in the Marsh Chamber, helping to defend the Toxin Legend Shard. Captain Olimar can assist in carrying the corpses of Dwarf Purple Bulborbs.
