Watery Blowhogs (ミズブタ?, lit.: "Water Pig") look exactly like Fiery Blowhogs, except that their snouts are tipped with blue. Instead of fire, they spit out a water-like liquid that gets stuck on the Pikmin's heads, excluding Blue Pikmin and Bulbmin, of course. Leaders will be pummeled to the ground if they are caught in the blast, making this one of the only times where leaders can be damaged by water. Purple Pikmin may work as well as long they are thrown (preferably on top of the Blowhog, so it gets stunned). Blowing the whistle in the area the water is spewed can also cancel out the attack almost instantly and save the Pikmin caught in the spray instantly.
Just like the Fiery Blowhog, it has lightly colored segments that are hard to see.

Nintendo Player's Guide
"You can tell a Watery Blowhog by its blue snout. The beast spits water and causes non-blue Pikmin to be lost in bubbles. If you're traveling with a large Pikmin army, swarm the Watery Blowhog and be ready to save the bubble-bound soldiers with your whistle."
Pikmin 3 Prima Guide
"A Watery Blowhog attacks by shooting water out of its snout. When battling one of these creatures, use your Blue Pikmin to attack the Watery Blowhog without any casualties. If your squad contains only a small amount of Blue Pikmin, use them to distract the Watery Blowhog, then flank the creature and have your more vulnerable Pikmin charge from the rear."

Like the Fiery Blowhog, this hog-like enemy blows out a hazard, but it is water instead of fire. In Japan, this creature is called ミズブタ?, or "Water Pig". Its scientific name is Sus loogiens, where loogiens seems entirely made up. A "loogie" is a slang term for mouth spit, mixed with nose mucus, which could explain the choice of the word loogiens. Internally, this enemy is called
wtank in Pikmin 2, which is the same internal name as the Fiery Blowhog, but starting with "w", for "water". In Pikmin 3, this enemy is recognized as being the same as the Fiery Blowhog, so it shares the internal name –
The original name for the Watery Blowhog was "Spitty Blowhog". This name can both be found on GameCube Interactive Multi-Game Demo Disc Version 18, as well as an early English script left inside the final game.

- By standing really close to a Watery Blowhog in Pikmin 2, it will rotate to face the leader, but will never actually attack. Instead, it will endlessly repeat its rotation animation. This happens with the Fiery Blowhog as well, and interestingly, the Watery Blowhog near the entrance to the Subterranean Complex follows through this animation faster than normal.
- The Prima Guide for Pikmin 3 and the Nintendo Player's Guide for Pikmin 2 state that the Watery Blowhog spits water. This contradicts the Piklopedia, which states that it shoots a flammable liquid, but is incapable of igniting it.
