Illuminant Breadbugs are a species of Breadbug that exhibit the unnatural ability to glow even in complete darkness. Illuminant Breadbugs are completely harmless, but do provide a good source of Pikmin seeds. There are only three Illuminant Breadbugs in the Hidden Territory, and rarely-spawning individuals in the Spark Territory. They wander aimlessly around the area, providing light wherever they tread. Illuminant Breadbugs shine bright yellow in color. They have no dens and do not drag objects, although they mischievously pull objects around. The only threat that Illuminant Breadbugs pose is also pushing Pikmin around. This can be especially dangerous if a crowd of Pikmin are near a hazard such as fire. Illuminant Breadbugs will not hesitate to wander in and under water. Captain Olimar may assist in carrying Illuminant Breadbugs corpses back to the Onion.
