This creature is usually sleeping. When Pikmin or their leaders get close enough, meaning not very close at all, it will wake up and try to bite the leaders and eat the Pikmin. If run away from, it will walk back to its original location and fall back asleep.

Strategy to defeat[edit]

Most Games

Swarming will not work. In games with Purple Pikmin or other such powerful species, it should be snuck up on from behind and Pikmin should be thrown in rapid succession onto its back.

Orange Bulborbs make a reappearance in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. They can be found in both the Toxin Territory and Toxin Chamber, like Dwarf Orange Bulborbs can be found. A single Orange Bulborb is located in the Toxin Chamber, along with thirty Dwarf Orange Bulborbs. The Orange Bulborb in the Toxin Chamber drops the Toxin Legend Shard upon defeat. Orange Bulborbs may consume seven Pikmin at once, and they move slightly faster than a normal Bulborb. Because of their edgy nature, Orange Bulborbs will awaken and give chase even when Captain Olimar or his Pikmin are a fair distance away from them. Orange Bulborbs also have the ability to yelp when its eyes are attacked. This attack causes Pikmin to scatter and flee, posing more of a threat to the survival of them. Captain Olimar cannot assist in carrying the corpse of an Orange Bulborb due to its large size.

Pikmin the huge debt[edit]

Olimar's notes[edit]

This beast has large yellow eyes to see a great distance at night. But it also sleeps with its eyes cracked, almost like it knows that it can't be killed by pikmin if it cracks its eyes.

Louie's notes[edit]

For an unforgettable hot dog, grind the meat into rolls and boil. Then take a hot dog bun and slap it in there. Mustard and ketchup is optional.

President's notes[edit]

These beasts seem to leave their eyes cracked when sleeping, which makes them perfect for guarding against treasure thieves.

Libra's notes[edit]

This beasts skin is perfect for a polka-dotted hoodie. Or orange and black boots.

Sagittarius's notes[edit]

This beast has such cool colors. I would keep it as a pet any day!

Violet's notes[edit]

This creature snores very loudly, if only Louie could stop it from snoring so we could keep one.

Tikes notes: According to Kolimar these guys have yellow eyes that help them see and sleep at the same time. It's odd but it's true. However, according to my speculations, they actually are born with a thing called the hitchhiker thumb granting them great movement. It located on back on its leg. In fact they can be great jumpers, but the legs aren't as strong like a ninja bulborb to endure the landing.

Alices Notes: These guys eyes should be bloodshot for how long they go without sleeping. However, this makes them vicious hunters and if your a zoo keeper, keep this guy locked up good. They tend to be very protective of their young, as I notice the babies can simply cry for help, and they'll be on you like a hawk.

Captain Pikmins Notes: Since the babies can cry to awake the mother, the dwarfs have adapted this technique, so be sure to kill them first. Also make sure to get your greens, since this is usually no easy fight.

Pikmin: Theme Park[edit]

Although these enemies are absent, their dwarph variants do appear.
