Hairy Bulborbs are enemies that are similar in appearance to Red Bulborbs but have white skin, blue spots, brown noses, and a lot of fluffy white fur. As the creature's health begins to fall, so does its hair, revealing its blue spots, making it more closely resemble its Breadbug mimic but larger in size. Hairy Bulborbs are similar in most respects to other mature Bulborbs, but tend to live in colder environments. They have less health and are slightly more aggressive than the Red Bulborb, but can be defeated using similar techniques. The Whiptongue Bulborb is very similar in coloration.


Olimar's notes

"This subspecies of grub-dog has a thick coat of soft white fur that obscures its abdominal markings. The fur also warms its vital organs, making this species well adapted to colder climates. However, its hair follicles are surprisingly frail, which can result in immediate hair loss if the creature is surprised."

Louie's notes

"Remove all of the bulborb's hair, wrap the beast in foil along with a halved lemon, and place it directly on the grill. The foil should protect the carcass from scorching, and the lemon will give the meat an elegant hint of citrus."

Attacks Eats Pikmin

Hairy Bulborbs return in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. Hairy Bulborbs generally are found wandering in both the Arctic Territory and Arctic Chamber. Only one Hairy Bulborb can be found in the Arctic Chamber, guarding the Frozen Legend Shard. Unlike in Pikmin 2, Hairy Buborbs lose more fur the more they are injured. This means by the time they are defeated, Hairy Bulborbs will have lost all of their fur. Pikmin may be thrown onto the hair of a Hairy Bulborb to have more of a grip and advantage of defeating one. However, this also means that the Hairy Bulborb becomes more aggressive and agitated the further its health is depleted. Hairy Bulborbs constantly patrol the area and may stop to look at the ground for a few moments just as Dwarf Bulborbs do. Captain Olimar cannot assist in carrying the corpses of Hairy Bulborbs due to their large size.

Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Hairy Bulborb only appears in snowy, cold climates. Blacks and Reds are recommended as always. An interesting note is that when attacking the Hairy Bulborb, it has higher defense when it still has its hair. So instead of having 650 HP, it really has 975!

Pikmin: The Huge Debt

Olimar's notes

"This species of bulborb seems to have fur to protect its body from extremely cold environments."

Louie's notes

"To make a mouthwatering lasagna, slice this beast up with cheese and pasta. Add spices and tomato sauce, then throw it in the oven at 250° for 30 minutes."

President's notes

"This beast is perfect for finding treasures in the snow due to its body warming hair."

Libra's notes

"This creature is perfect for polka dot boots or a beautiful fur coat."

Sagittarius's notes

"If you live in cold regions, this beast is perfect for you since it warms itself."

Violet's notes

"This thing likes the cold and is as warm as my lovely Louie."

The Hairy Bulborb appears in Pikmin: The Bulblaxian War, and is of the same difficulty when faced as normal. They are found in The Valley of Regret and The Temple of Ice. The one in the Temple of Ice holds the Unknown Spotlight.

Olimar's notes

"This bulborb has rapidly growing hair follicles. When it loses its hair, it usually regenerates in a couple of hours, granted that the bulborb has enough nutrients to do so."

Ship's notes

"These guys are a great source of carpet beetles. Well, they can cause them to appear, anyways. Now all Olimar needs to do is find a treasure that doubles as a bug-zapper..."

These enemies appear in Pikmin 4, they are the same as their Pikmin 2 counterpart. They appear in Silver Lake.

Pikmin: Return

These enemies appear in Pikmin: Return, with graphical changes such as its hairs looking more "silky": every individual Hairy Bulborb has different hues of brown on its face and blue spots on its back. Hairy Bulborbs in this game work and look like the Bulborbs of Pikmin 3. If Pikmin are thrown onto its eyes it, like any other Grub-dog, will flinch and drop any Pikmin in its mouth. It will lose its hair the more it is damaged, much like in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. Its hair provides some defense, while its face takes normal damage. A bomb-rock will take half of its health and will make all of its hairs fall off. If the Hairy Bulborb is caught in the rain, its hairs will appear soaked, and it will not be asleep, making this enemy quite dangerous in the rain.
