Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

It emerges from its burrow to spout fire. Why does it do this? Some things, evidently, need no reason.

Naming[edit]

The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Hey! Pikmin.
Particularly: Describe the enemy's names. (Guidelines)

This creature's name differs from the Armored Cannon Beetle Larva's with the word "Firesnout", which refers to its fire-shooting ability and, like other lithopods, its snout, from which the fire comes from. For reasons unknown, the word "Larva" is absent from its name when compared to the Armored Cannon Beetle Larva, despite it being a cannon beetle larva as well. Its Japanese name is ヒフキドックリ? (lit.: "Fire Breathing Tokkuri") with "Tokkuri" being the Japanese name for most lithopods (referring to the part of the Sake set) and Fire Breathing is obviously chosen.

Its scientific name, Granignis ictum is composed of Granignis. It is not a real word, but itself is composed of Granitus, the genus for the armored cannon beetle, and ignis, which is Latin for fire.
