The Giant Breadbug, unlike other most other Breadbugs, is large and shaped almost perfectly cubical, and looks like a whole loaf of bread. It behaves almost identically to normal Breadbugs but is harder to damage by rejection from an Onion or ship pod. The Giant Breadbug can instantly replenish its health if it collects an object into its den.


Olimar's notes

"This gargantuan species of the greater breadbug family has a torso so perfectly square that it almost seems like it was formed in a mould. For a brief period after birth, the Giant Breadbug competes for food with smaller breadbugs, but upon reaching maturity it seeks out much larger prey. This is the primary reason that two species with similar feeding habits can coexist in the same habitat. Hordes of pikmin appear to pose the only plausible threat to this massive creature's life."

Louie's notes

"Although cooking this colossal beast yields a mountain of meat, every ounce of it is flavorless. Only suitable for intergalactic all-you-can-eat buffets."

Same way to kill as in Pikmin 2.

Pikmin 3: The Dweevil's Revenge

This Article Contains information about the unreal game Pikmin 3: The Dweevil's Revenge made by WooferWoof1!

The Giant Breadbug is very similar to as it was in Pikmin 2, except that it is a bit slower and has more health. It is found in the Aqua Abyss, Boss Championship, Breadbug Battlefield, and Pikmin 3: The Dweevil's Revenge/Pit of 100 Trials Floor 25, guarding the Windowless Helm. In that pit of 100 trials, the Giant Breadbug is abnormal because it is the same as a Pikmin 2 Giant Breadbug.

Pikmin 3: The War of the Pikmin Planet

In this game, it has a lot of health, as it can survive being hit by the Pod four times before dying.

The Giant Breadbug appears as the boss of the Infantile Fortress and shows up in some later caves as a recurring mini-boss. It has much more health and will try to escape when attacked. It is still incapable of directly harming Pikmin.

Attacks Drags objects, crushes Pikmin

Giant Breadbugs act and appear exactly as they did in Pikmin 2, but three can be found around the center Chasm in the Loaf Territory. All three can be defeated and picked up to be carried to the Onion. If a Giant Breadbug walks through a crowd of Pikmin, it will crush a few of them by stepping on them. Defeating one will force it to emit a cry, alerting any nearby Breadbugs to carry its corpse back to the respective den of that Giant Breadbug to resurrect it. Once the Giant Breadbug revives, it rises from its den, acting normally again. A Giant Breadbug can be found in each of the three sections of the Loaf Territory that are separated by Gates. Captain Olimar cannot assist in carrying the corpse of a Giant Breadbug due to its massive size.

The Giant Breadbug is a miniboss and can attack. The one in the Secret Factor is revealed to be controlled by Gwalf and can summon Blast Pepperbugs.

Tike's notes

"Umm... who knew Gwarf was capable of controlling beasts? An Armored Cannon Beetle, and now this. How did he even control its hunger?"

Alice's notes

"I just knew it! The poor thing was being controlled by that madman Gwalf. Don't worry, guys; once we stop that wretched dictator, you can live your hungry, selfish, but free lives."

Captain Pikmin's notes

"I don't know what to say. Your best bet is to ram its summons into it, but I heard that Purples can put a dent on its bulky skin. Plus maybe you can trick it by feeding it to the Onion. Ha! That's a traditional trick."
