The Overcharge Blowhog is a galvanic relative of the Puffy Blowhog. Similarly to the relationship between the Fiery Blowhog and the Watery Blowhog, the Overcharge Blowhog is a creature that not only uses an electric current to keep its body stable for its floating hydrogen-air sac but can also release highly ionized air that reacts upon exiting the blowhog's snout, resulting in a blast of lightning. The Puffy Blowhog lost that ability, similarly to how the Watery Blowhog's chemicals fail to combust upon exiting the creature's snout. Overcharge Blowhogs are striped black and yellow and are slightly larger than Puffy Blowhogs. They still bear spines, and the electricity imbued in the creature makes it an interesting, flashy sight to see. Keep all Pikmin other than Yellow Pikmin far away from this enemy, as it has the capacity to smite them all in a single blow.
- "This creature has a supernatural ability to collect hydride. The Puffy Blowhog, in contrast, mostly stores the more stable molecular hydrogen. It is currently believed that the extra electrons required to keep hydride stable in a gaseous solution come from the concentrated prevalence of bases to acids in the environment. This effectively makes the Overcharge Blowhog a concentrated mass of electrons. The electrons can be forced out in one of two ways. The first is by its breathing; the ions escape, release electrons at any fluorine, oxygen, or nitrogen atoms nearby, and quickly combine with another hydrogen atom to become molecular hydrogen. The other way is by making the surroundings more acidic; the electrons will be pulled from the blowhog to the acid and both the blowhog and the environment will neutralize. Beautiful yet dangerous arcs of electricity will ensue."
