Fiery Dwarf Bulblax
The Fiery Dwarf Bulblax (ヤキコチャッピー?, lit.: "Sizzling Young Chappy") is an enemy in Hey! Pikmin. It is similar to the Fiery Bulblax from Pikmin 2, in that it chases after and eats Pikmin, its back is on fire, and it has a melted appearance. It is much larger than other dwarf mimics and does not have teeth. Because of its fiery back, it can only be defeated with Red Pikmin.
If left idle, Dwarf Fiery Bulblaxes will slowly walk back and forth. If one spots Olimar or Pikmin, it will charge them leaving behind a trail of fire. If it is being attacked, fiery projectiles will fly off its back.
Defeating a Dwarf Fiery Bulblax is a relatively simple ordeal. Throwing at least a handful of Pikmin will dispatch the creature fairly quickly. However, while it is moving, it will leave behind a trail of fire. Despite only being able to eat 2 Pikmin at a time, the speed at which it eats lends it the powerful ability to decimate groups of Pikmin.
Hey! Pikmin logs
“This creature's back is perpetually burning, so it leaves a trail of fire wherever it goes. I wonder how those bulging eyes keep from getting cooked sunny-side up. Now that's a matter worth researching.”
