The Withering Blowhog is a smaller variation of the Puffy Blowhog, and it has orange-red skin with yellow spots and a white underside that form a flame design. It also has whisker-like appendages under its snout that are white in color. When Pikmin are nearby, the Withering Blowhog will unleash a gust of air which, although it is significantly less powerful than the Puffy Blowhog's breath, will cause the Pikmin's flowers to instantly wilt. The blast of wind created by Withering Blowhogs can also reach Pikmin behind bramble gates, which makes destroying a gate guarded by one an incredibly frustrating task. To attack it, several Pikmin must be thrown onto its body, or at least one heavy Pikmin such as a Purple Pikmin. The weight will ground the Blowhog for a few seconds, utterly helpless; it has less vitality than the Puffy Blowhog, but several attacks may still be needed depending on how many Pikmin are on hand. When defeated, it can decompress its float bladder for a quick escape and can drop several randomly-colored pellets or other rewards if aboveground.
After blowing air, it will giggle in happiness, but it will only do this if Pikmin get knocked down. Purple Pikmin will wilt anyway, but will not be knocked back.
- "The withering blowhog is a close relative of the puffy blowhog, but its breath is significantly weaker. However, its breath does contain a petal-withering plant hormone that causes flowers to instantly lose their petals. Although its breath has not been studied in detail, analysis of the chemical compounds involved hold great promise for the biotechnology sector."
- "Hang this creature on a rack and sun-dry on a hot afternoon. When suitably crisp, grind the sun-dried beast into powder. Makes a great substitute for cayenne or curry powder!"
