Fiery Young Yellow Wollywog
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. It is the transitional state of two yet unseen creatures, presumed to be the Fiery Wogpole and the Fiery Yellow Wollywog.
Just like the Young Yellow Wollywog it will simply jump forward, crushing Pikmin that it lands on. When it reaches a wall, it will change directions. Because of its immunity to fire, it can travel through fire geysers safely, unlike its non-fiery counterpart.
They work just like their normal counterparts: a singe well-placed Red Pikmin will defeat this creature.

“Somehow, this type of Yellow Wollywog evolved to survive being on fire. It's a useful mutation, to be sure, but getting there must have been painful.”
The "Fiery" distinguishes it from the normal Young Yellow Wollywog, the "Young" in its name confirms it is an infant version of an unseen species (presumably the "Fiery Yellow Wollywog"), and "Yellow" distinguishing it from the regular Wollywog.
Its scientific name is Volcanus amphicaris frodendum. Amphicaris frodendum is the scientific name of the Wogpole. This is likely a mistake, as two species cannot have the same species name, even if they have a different genus.
