Decorated Cannon Beetle Larvae are enemies that have an appearance similar to Armored Cannon Beetle Larvae, but are red instead of green, and have orange eyes. Much like the Armored Cannon Beetle Larva, Decorated Cannon Beetle Larvae will wander aimlessly in a small area while left alone. Decorated Cannon Beetle Larvae, like other Cannon Beetle Larvae, can be found buried in the ground. When approached, the larva will spit a large rock that crushes most Pikmin and kills them instantly, except for Pikmin such as Rock Pikmin that cannot be crushed. These boulders move slowly compared to those shot by the Armored Cannon Beetle Larva, but they home in on nearby leaders. The rocks can be destroyed if they are lead into a wall, another enemy, or the creature who launched the object. If the rock collides with another creature, it will deal a large amount of damage to them, enough to kill most small enemies. Certain creatures, however, are protected from the damage, such as Anode Beetles. When attacked, the Decorated Cannon Beetle has only one defense: a bucking motion that will send all attacking Pikmin flying out in front of it, briefly incapacitating them and possibly deflowering them, and knock any nearby leader to the ground. This is very similar to the defensive attack of the Fiery and Watery Blowhogs.


Olimar's notes

"This creature is the larval form of a cannon beetle variant known for a diet consisting entirely of eating stones. The decorated cannon beetle favors stones with high iron content, which contributes to its brilliant red torso. The stones these creatures launch are wrapped in a powerful magnetic field which causes the stones to stray from their launch trajectory when other objects with high metal content, such as space suits, are nearby. Extreme caution is recommended for explorers wearing steel-plated armor in close proximity to this fearsome creature."

Louie's notes

"Slice the meat into tender cutlets and vigorously apply a lime and pepper rub. Panfry until lightly crusted. Accompany with watercress and drizzle with freshly prepared tamarind sauce."

Not only is the larval form encountered, but also the adult form, which is shiny gold in color. The boulders the adult form shoots are faster and turn around better.
