Red Bubblimps are inoffensive creatures that appear in Hey! Pikmin. They are made of a small red ball circled by a thin layer of water, with two yellow eyes. They only drip from the ceiling, and are harmless. Throwing a Pikmin on their body or simply just bumping into one is enough to kill it.
The family name bubblimp is a combination of bubble and blimp. The genus, pilarubber, has the word rubber at the end, which is a material balloons are commonly made out of. The members of the bubblimp family have balloon-like bodies.
