Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Crumbug (ヒトクチパンモドキ?, lit.: "Bite-Sized Pseudo Bread") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It is essentially a small, cuboid Breadbug. Unlike normal Breadbugs, however, this species has the ability to eat Pikmin. It simply walks straight forwards and occasionally turns around.

The Crumbug's only move is to pace back and forth, quickly eating any Pikmin that happen to be in the way. If it falls to a lower elevation, it won't be able to climb back up and will continue to pace at the lower level.

Crumbugs do not drop any Sparklium when killed.

The Crumbug is a common enemy in Hey! Pikmin and can be found on most stages.


Crumbugs can be defeated with a single Pikmin thrown directly onto their backs. It should be noted, however, that one should take caution when aiming; Pikmin will die if they come into contact with a Crumbug in any way that isn't from being thrown onto them. This includes Pikmin touching them from behind while running back to Captain Olimar.

Its only move is to walk straight toward you without stopping. Is that so it can eat us, or so we can eat it?


"Crumbug" is a combination of "crumb" and "bug", as a play on the pun used for the Breadbug's name, since a crumb is a small piece of bread.
