Scientific Name Granitus chauckabooma
Family Lithopod
Carry Weight 7
Max. Carriers 15 Pikmin
Seed Worth 15 seeds
Attacks Launches explosive and homing boulders

This enemy is the larval stage of the tremendous Volatile Armored Cannon Beetle. Unlike its cousins the Armored Cannon Beetle Larva and Decorated Cannon Beetle, it is blue with red eyes. Just like the Decorated Cannon Beetle, it shoots homing boulders at the captain. These boulders are also highly explosive, exploding on contact with the first thing they touch. Its boulders could instantly kill any surrounding enemies, so use this technique for your advantage. These pests usually appear in groups of 2.

How to Kill[edit]

Though significantly weaker than the Volatile Armored Cannon Beetle, it has a pretty good amount of health. Purple Pikmin are the best choice for their stunning ability. It is also recommended to make it shoot its own rocks at itself.

After Years[edit]

In Pikmin:The After Years, these enemies are slightly uncommon, appearing in some caves, such as Cave of Booms and in one above ground area, the Merciless Mountains.

Pikmin 4[edit]

Similar to the after years version. They are only found in Silver Lake.
