The Emperor Breadbug is an optional mini-boss in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. It is a Breadbug mimic of an Emperor Bulblax. It also fights alongside the Empress Breadbug. The Emperor Breadbug attacks very much like an Emperor Bulblax, but looks far from the same. Instead of having a mossy back, the Emperor Breadbug is shaped similar to a large Giant Breadbug, but its head is between two hamburger buns. The buns are curved so they cover everything but its face. The Emperor Breadbug is found buried in the earth, with a majority of the top bun sticking out of the ground. Some players may confuse this for a mound. When the center of the top bun is stepped on, the Emperor Breadbug suddenly rises from the ground, and jumps out of it shortly afterward. The Emperor Breadbug will try to shake the extra weight off once it fully surfaces and will only return to its sleeping place if Captain Olimar and his Pikmin are either flung off or step off of it. To defeat the Emperor Breadbug, Captain Olimar must first weigh it down with Purple Pikmin. When it has too much weight on its back, the Emperor Breadbug will collapse. With its legs and bottom bun compressed, Olimar's Pikmin are able to attack the face of the Emperor Breadbug. It must be weighted down with thirty Purple Pikmin the first time, forty-five the second time, and sixty the third. Having to bring so many Purple Pikmin makes this a semi-challenging mini-boss. When defeated, the Emperor Breadbug will emit a loud roar that knocks Pikmin and Olimar back while flailing around in one spot. It shrinks down to half of its size for easy transportation. Captain Olimar cannot assist in carrying the corpse of the Emperor Breadbug due to it being considered a boss's corpse.
- The Emperor Breadbug has a size equal to that of a Emperor Bulblax from Pikmin 2.
- The Empress Breadbug will awaken at the same time as the Emperor Breadbug does and vice-versa, regardless of which one is awoken first.
