The Fiery Young Yellow Wollywog (Fiery Young Yellow Wollyhop in the European version, ヤキコイモガエル?, lit.: "Sizzling Young Potato Frog") is a fiery variation of the Young Yellow Wollywog. It acts and looks exactly the same as the standard Young Yellow Wollywog, but its body is perpetually on fire, meaning that only Red Pikmin can kill one. Its tadpole and adult stages are not seen.
