Crimson Candypop Buds (べ二ポンガシグサ?, lit.: "Crimson Puffed Grain Weed") are red Candypop Buds found in all three Pikmin games. The behave exactly the same as all other Candypop Buds, except when non-red Pikmin are thrown in, they will change into Red Pikmin. If reds are thrown in, they will be reverted to leaf stages. In Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 3, Red Pikmin don't count against the 5 Pikmin limit per Candypop Bud. In Pikmin, this bud can be used up to 50 times to get massive amounts of Red Pikmin, but Red Pikmin themselves do count against the limit.

Olimar's notes

No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits out the same number of red Pikmin seeds. The Pikmin, the candypop flowers, and the Pikmin Onions are not easily explained by current theories of the xenobotanical sciences, and thus have not yet been appropriately studied and classified.

Louie's notes

This spicy flower combusts upon contact with the tongue. Keep fire-retardant condiments within arm's reach!

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Crimson Candypop Bud appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker that can be worn by Olimar exclusively. It adds +12% damage to all Pikmin-related attacks.
