Attacks Crushes Pikmin, causes boulders to fall, births Bulborb Larvae

The Empress Bulblax is a boss whose markings and general features are similar to those of the Red Bulborb, but its body is much larger and composed of five distinct segments; its comparatively tiny legs dangle above the ground. In an attack, Pikmin should be thrown onto its face and called back before it throws them off. After shaking Pikmin off, the boss rolls from side to side across its chamber in an attempt to crush its aggressors, during which it will smash into walls and potentially make rocks fall from the cave's ceiling. Empress Bulblaxes are most commonly found continuously giving birth to Bulborb Larvae, which are easily defeated by their own mother's rolling. When defeated, four of the Empress Bulblax's front body segments explode, leaving only the segment attached to the head.

Notes

Olimar's notes

"Initial observation placed doubt on the capacity of the grub-dog family to support a strong ant- or beelike social structure, but recent studies show the family is capable of such complexity. The egg sac of the largest female grub-dog within a given range swells to dramatic proportions in response to environmental changes, such as the sudden depletion of prey species. These females temporarily take on the role of pack matriarch. Also, in pack formation it has been observed that nearly all males not involved in species reproduction undergo natural sex changes. The characteristics of such specimens are quite intriguing indeed."

Louie's notes

"For a sophisticated delicacy, make a pate de foie gras from this massively obese creature's liver and spread it over a sesame cracker."
