Water Dumples are members of the grub-dog family and act like Dwarf Bulborbs. Some Water Dumples have whiskers, but others do not. They are most commonly found in water but can survive on land as well. They resemble blue cat- or shellfish, with relatively large mouths, whisker-like features, and tentacles at the rear of their abdomen. Some Water Dumples are weaker and slower than others, but can always be defeated easily if they are swarmed. Just like Bulborbs, Purple Pikmin and similar Pikmin will work particularly well if this creature is found on land. A Water Dumple can be defeated easily by leaders as it has few hit points.

Tike's notes

"I'm quite shocked to know a species so distantly similar is part of the grub family. It dietary habit stays the same, but are amphibious and prefer water. They are also blind, so it depends on sound waves to locate food. I just wonder why such creatures love living nearby harsh waters. Like the ones in Sanhattens beach."

Alice's notes

"These stubborn creatures think they can just relax in water and chow any Pikmin nearby. Yet, these creatures are unbelievably lazy with a habit of sneaking up on people. It's very annoying and if I could... I bring it down in a fist fighting match. Maybe I'm getting a bit carried away by this idea."

Captain Pikmin's notes

"Since they mainly in the water, fighting them without blues may become a problem. Watch out though, because they can pair up and eat your team pretty quickly."

Olimar's notes

"The ship always complains about what I bring in. Having no new notes, all I have to say is that he'll complain about this..."

Ship's notes

"Olimar says I complain about everything. Really, I just complain about once every blue moon... I hate his notes, and that thing is just REVOLTING!"

Health 200

Water Dumples appear slightly later in Pikmin V than they do in other games, due to there being more areas before Blue Pikmin are found. They have significantly more health than before, having half of that of its cousin, the Red Bulborb, instead of a fifth.

Brittany's notes

Olimar insists that this creature is a grub-dog, but to me it seems too far removed. The body shape and feeding habits are similar, but the Dumple has gills and lacks many distinct features of the Bulborbs like their spotty backs.

Olimar's notes

Although its defenseless body may look like easy pickings, it is a surprisingly capable attacker. It can lunge at your Pikmin to eat them, and it can buck off even a large number at once onto its frontside, where they become the prey instead.

Louie's notes

It has a taste and composure that lies in-between traditional red meats and seafood. While it can flexibly be cooked to either side, hitting the right balance in the middle is very difficult. The usual outcome is bringing out the worst of both surf and turf.
