Sector 6 – Area E
|Pikmin available||Red Pikmin|
|Requirements||Complete Barriers of Flame|
|Next area||Freezing Wasteland|
Blazing Winds (もえさかる いぶき?, lit.: "Blazing breath") is the boss battle area in the Sweltering Parchlands. It takes place in burnt down trench in a forest, where the player encounters and fights against a massive Fiery Blowhog. Bomb rocks are provided at the corners of the arena, which allow the player to attack the creature with.
When Barriers of Flame is completed, a cutscene plays aboard the S.S. Dolphin II's cockpit, where the ship announces that it found a large treasure inside an indigenous creature. After the battle is over, a similar cutscene plays, but with the ship announcing the discovery of a new sector, the Snowfall Field, and will warn Olimar about slipping on the ice or catching a cold.
The starting location is on top of a ledge with some bumps, but the arena itself is below the ledge. The arena is roughly 2 screen widths wide, and is enclosed by walls that cannot be escaped. The center of the arena has a pillar with a solid top, where the Fiery Blowhog is, and cannot be reached normally. Near the walls are small protrusions on the floor with bomb rock generators. Near those generators, further inward, are doorways, which lead to the opposite side of the Blowhog, but other than that, the area is identical on both sides.
|Fiery Blowhog introduction||The player approaches the ledge of the starting area.||Olimar walks near the ledge, looks in the distance, and spots a massive Fiery Blowhog on top of a tall pillar, in the center of an arena. The Blowhog spits a ball of fire at him, he dodges by moving closer to the ledge, but the blast of the ball hitting the floor knocks him back and onto the floor down below. He tumbles and lands near a group of Red Pikmin, standing face-up as the Pikmin look at him. He eventually gets up, shakes his head, and the Pikmin jump in place, nervous. Olimar then turns his attention to the pillar, where the Fiery Blowhog growls at the group.|
