Dwarf Red Bulborbs are small and common enemies that were originally known as Dwarf Bulborbs until various subspecies with different colorations were discovered. They are revealed to belong to the Breadbug family and not the Grub-dog family. These enemies perfectly resemble Red Bulborbs in appearance, but are much smaller. Dwarf Red Bulborbs can be easily defeated by swarming them, or by throwing a single Pikmin directly on top of them. If a leader throws a Purple Pikmin on it, it will remain attached while the creature falls. Bothering one will make it release a scream, waking up the nearest Red Bulborb. They yip when a leader or Pikmin draws near, just like other Dwarf Bulborbs and Dwarf Bulbears do.

Notes

Olimar's notes

"Although initially identified as a juvenile red bulborb, groundbreaking new research indicates that this creature is in fact a member of the breadbug family. A close relative of the vanilla breadbug, it escapes predation through mimicry. Unique adaption of the red bulborb's crimson coloration allows the species to safely commingle. Such effective adaptation and obfuscation by a prey species is rare, indicating this clever creature is a master of mimicry."

Louie's notes

"For a blissful bisque, mince the entire beast finely and stir in with heavy cream, artichoke hearts, and a pinch of black pepper. Heat slowly until piping hot. Mmmmm... Rich and creamy!"

Olimar's notes

"A prime example of the wonders of evolution, this breadbug species mimics an adult red bulborb to avoid predation. Dwarf red bulborbs are very social animals, often hunting in packs of three, and if threatened they will let out a loud scream that wakes up any nearby bulborbs."

Ship's notes

"This disgusting little pest imitates a bigger disgusting pest. Olimar seems to love storing dead specimens inside my pod for "scientific reasons". Absolutely sickening! And when they start to decompose, eugh!"

Dwarf Red Bulborbs play a very small role in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. They can only be fought in the Beginner Territory and can be uncommonly spotted in unreachable locations in all the other Territories. When spotted in unreachable ledges, Dwarf Red Bulborbs can be found sleeping much like normal Red Bulborbs. Dwarf Red Bulborbs can be found in several positions while sleeping, such as lying on their left and rights sides and their stomachs. Three Dwarf Red Bulborbs can be fought when Captain Olimar lands in the Beginner Territory. A Dwarf Red Bulborb is found battling three Red Pikmin while the other two can be found observing to ground near the scuffle. This is the only instance in which Dwarf Red Bulborbs do not serve as decorations.

Olimar's notes

"This has been reclassified as a breadbug. How it got from being a thing that drags stuff to its nest to a diurnal predator is unknown. It has good mimicry, as the Red Bulborb mistakes it for it's young. That, or it is stupid."

Ship's notes

"Just great. Another stinky bug-eyed creature that comes in the dozens to make my hold stinky. I don't care if it's red, there is JUST TOO MUCH!"

Dwarf Red Bulborbs appear in several places in Pikmin: The Winds of Light.

Olimar's notes

"Why Breadbugs would attempt to mimic other creatures (especially Grub-Dogs) when they have no known predators is crazy. Maybe the breadbugs need a different, more effective way to gain nutrients, although mimicry has caused them to lose their pulling ability."

Tike's notes

"How odd, Kolimar told me that these guys are part of the breadbug family and have a talent for mimicry. Umm, I disagree because I will check the DNA to show you proof. Wait not the same? let me that try again... argh fine you win I have to say they fooled me till now, so thanks I suppose. I also can tell you that these creatures have a poorly built exoskeleton. In fact, an object landing on it about the fourth of its weight can cause severe damage. Umm, maybe that's why they don't do so well being crushed by a Pikmin. Wait... have I cracked the formula for Pikmin weight? This could be revolutionary!!! Wait, 250 grams!? argh stupid Olimar always beating me to the punch of discovery."

Alice's notes

"I would say they are a tad stupid in there I.Q and I personally would recommend they follow their stepmother's footsteps. They are quite cute to say at best, but these creatures really need to grow up, seriously!"

Captain Pikmin's notes

"Throw a Pikmin on their backs and you're done."

Pikmin: Theme Park

They are the most common enemy, found everywhere and are the only enemies fought in Trapdoor Trap, other than having to break Louie's cage. They are always found near their parents. However, like their parents, they sleep during the day in the overworld. They are known in this game as Red Bulborb Younglings.
