The Firesnout Beetle (ヒフキドックリ?, lit.: "Fire Breathing Tokkuri") is an enemy in Hey! Pikmin. It is a crimson beetle-like creature that breathes fire from the walls it sits in. It has tiny legs, red eyes, and black spots around its darker colored exoskeleton. It is slightly shorter than Captain Olimar, being the smallest member of the lithopod family. It appears in only one area, Sizzling Precipice.


The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Hey! Pikmin.
Particularly: Describe its behavior when it sees Pikmin, when it attacks, when it shakes, when it loses interest, etc.

Firesnout Beetles live exclusively in walls, popping out on occasion to shoot a beam of fire. After a few seconds, they will retreat.



The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

These can only be defeated when sticking out of walls. However, when they are shooting fire they will burn any non-Red Pikmin.

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

  • Common name: Firesnout Beetle. 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. The lack of the word "Larva" is likely due to the absence of an adult stage.
  • Japanese nickname: ヒフキドックリ?, lit.: "Fire Breathing Tokkuri". ドックリ? (lit.: "Tokkuri ") is present in the Japanese nickname of most lithopods and Fire Breathing is obviously chosen.
  • Japanese name: ヒフキイシツツミ?, lit.: "Fire Breathing Stone Wrapper".
  • Scientific name: Granignis ictum. Granignis is a portmanteau of Granitus, the genus of most lithopods, and ignis, Latin for fire. The meaning of ictum is unknown.
  • Internal names: Its internal name is hifuki. Its generator name is enemy_wall_flame.
  • Prerelease: None.
