The Titan Dweevil is one of the largest members of the dweevil family. Unlike other dweevils, its only natural attack is to lash out with its pincers, which does no damage and is only an attempt to get Pikmin off it; the creature is only really dangerous it weaponizes treasures and other objects.

Titans Dweevils are usually found burrowed into the ground in such a way that only the treasures they are carrying are visible. When approached, they rapidly rise from the ground and attack.

Weapons

Titan Dweevils are notorious for weaponizing objects such as treasures. Right before using the attack, the creature will turn into the color that symbolizes the hazard of the chosen weapon, if any. Pikmin must be thrown at a weapon, either while it is mounted on the dweevil's hide or in its hands, and after being attacked enough times, it will detach, and will not be picked up by the boss again. After a weapon has been damaged enough, it will use a slightly different and more potent attack.

Vulnerability

After every weapon has been broken off, it will lose its armor and turn pale yellow. All that must be done now is throwing Pikmin at its body. It does not have any counterattacks at this stage other than shaking off Pikmin and making them lose their flowers.

When defeated, the Titan Dweevil will seemingly melt into a bubbly, bluish goop. The weapons can be picked up as treasures. As a bonus, if the Titan Dweevil is defeated when it is petrified, it will drop 10 random sprays.

Notes

Olimar's notes

"The largest member of the dweevil family, this fearsome predator carries protective components that frequently exhibit offensive capabilities, an evolution that may be attributed to mere chance. Another evolutionary theory is that the chemical contents of the containers carried by titan dweevils contribute to possible gene splicing. While other dweevils do not seem to choose the objects they carry, the titan dweevil appears to prefer shiny objects above all others."

Louie's notes

"Eaten raw, this predator's luxurious legs are bold and full flavored. What a satisfying crunch!"
