The Snow Bulborb (ユキチャッピー?, lit.: "Snow Chappy") is an enemy in Pikmin 2. They are another subspecies of Dwarf Bulborb, in which these particular ones resemble miniature Hairy Bulborbs without any fur on their backs. They are as similar as any other Dwarf Bulborb, although they have lower health than the red and orange varieties, and have considerably less than the Dwarf Bulbear.
They are first found in the Emergence Cave, making them the first subterranean species discovered. They are most commonly found near other Hairy Bulborbs, or in cave terrain covered by snow or ice. If this creature is petrified in the Piklopedia, when it breaks out of the stone it runs around eating any thrown pikpik carrots at a much greater speed than normal. The Whiptongue Bulborb in Pikmin 3 is very similar in coloration.
If a considerable amount of Pikmin is available, swarm it and it should die before eating any. Alternatively, aim and throw a large amount of Pikmin (preferably Purple Pikmin) at its back. If one lands directly on it, it'll die immediately.
Run around it and swat it until it's dead, avoiding its attacks. Similar to the strategy of defeating Adult bulborbs, attack its back to evade its attacks.

This enemy's white color and tendency to be in cold environments explain why it is called "Snow" Bulborb. In Japan, it is called ユキチャッピー?, which simply translates to "Snow Chappy", with Chappy being the Japanese name for "Bulborb". Its scientific name is Pansarus pseudooculii frosticus, with frosticus being similar to the English word "frost". Internally, its name is
yellowkochappy, which follows the same internal naming as the Dwarf Red Bulborb, but with "yellow" at the start, considering that in earlier versions of the game, these Bulborbs were yellow.
