This article is about the treasure. For the character proper, see Louie.
The King of Bugs (虫の王?, lit.: "King of Bugs") is actually just Louie. Olimar saved him after the Titan Dweevil (sublevel 14 of the Dream Den) was defeated, and apparently, it was advisable to put him in the Ship's Pod because there are only two seats in the Ship. Louie now insists that everyone address him by his "proper title", the King of Bugs. It could be believed that Louie was actually controlling the Titan Dweevil; he was not even harmed when he was captured and saved, and according to the sales pitch in the Treasure Hoard, Louie hijacked a "colossal insect's brain". He is tied for the least valuable treasure.
Louie is back! Somehow, he survived a horrific ordeal with a freakishly large, weapon-wielding titan dweevil! I entered a hole with an army of ferocious Pikmin, grimly determined to save Louie from the titan dweevil, but it seems that he was perfectly fine all along. I can't understand how he managed to avoid being eaten. Hmmm... He's always had an unusually close connection with insects, and I know he loves to cook them! Maybe he wasn't kidnapped after all... Could he have been controlling that beast all along?! No... that's craziness! Although... he does insist now that we address him by his "proper title", the King of Bugs.”
A new employee of Hocotate Freight, Louie is often silent. Nobody knows what thoughts lurk in his mind. He appears to operate on the same wavelength as insects, often with dangerous results. After he was kidnapped, he somehow managed to hijack a colossal insect's brain!”

- Louie's and the King of Bugs's spacesuits are actually slightly different (their light in particular). This can be seen better with hacks.
