The Stuffed Bellbloom (オオスズナリ?, lit.: "Big Clusters") is an enemy that appears in Hey! Pikmin. It is round and yellow, with brown circles on its front. It moves by repeatedly jumping forward, while making a jingling noise. When struck with Pikmin, it loses health and drops Sparklium Seeds out of a hole in its back, with one or two per hit. Attacking until it dies will result in a total of 38 seeds. Once defeated, it drops the Fond-o-Sphere.

Behavior[edit]

It will continuously leap forward, and will squash any Pikmin that it lands on after a jump. After reaching a wall, it will turn around and repeat in the other direction. Although hitting it with Pikmin makes it lose its seeds, it will not react or change its behavior in any way. This enemy doesn't hurt Olimar if he runs into it; it will simply push him back.

Locations[edit]

  • Snowfall Field
    • Below the Ice: The only Stuffed Bellbloom in the whole game appears here. After walking up the pipe that leads to higher ground once dug out, there is a pathway to the right. After going through a doorway that the path leads to, there is a small subsection. This is where the creature is found.

Strategy[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

An easy way to defeat the Stuffed Bellbloom is to stay at the edge where it changes directions, and wait for it to approach Olimar. Once it's close, you should attack it with Pikmin. Because the Pikmin will bounce off and land on the ledge, they cannot be flattened.

A faster way to defeat it is to get close to its back and throw Pikmin at it. You'll be able to attack it safely, as it will only jump in the direction it's facing. However, it will eventually change directions. When this happens, swiftly walk in the opposite direction its leaping in, as to end up on the other side of it again. You can even attack it in midair, but this move is risky since they can easily miss, causing the creature to land on their Pikmin. Finally, because all the seeds come out of the back of the Stuffed Bellbloom, this strategy allows you to easily get them.

Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

Its body is stuffed with seeds to keep it going through the winter. It might drop a few if you hit it, but it might also drop something stuffed with energy!

Naming[edit]

In the Stuffed Bellbloom's name, "Stuffed" is most likely referring to how it is stuffed with Sparklium Seeds. "Bellbloom" isn't a word, but it has "Bell" in it. This is probably from the noise it makes when it jumps, which sounds like bells jingling. Its Japanese name, オオスズナリ?, translates to "Big Clusters". This is probably because whenever it is attacked, clusters of seeds fall out. It also has a rather big appearance compared to other creatures.

Its internal name is Oosuzunary, which is simply a Romanization of its Japanese name with no spaces. Also, its generator name is enemy_bouncer. This could be because it moves by bouncing forward.
