All members of this family are in the Fouskaflexilis genus.
This creature has a little brown head on a huge orange body, composed of fat. This enemy stands on two tiny legs, colored in various shades, going from yellow to brown. The Blubbug is inoffensive to Pikmin, and will only run towards Olimar, though this can be dangerous in some instances. It can be used to jump really high in the air, and reach places that are otherwise inaccessible.
The Puffy Blubbug has the same shape and behavior as its counterpart, however, it is entirely tinted blue and covered by fine hair. It also lacks legs, and uses a pair of wings.
The word "bloather" is a wordplay on "bloat", which refers to how bloated the family members are.
