Red BubblimpEdit

Main article: Red Bubblimp.

Scientific name: Pilaruber ephemerens

Red Bubblimps are inoffensive creatures that appear in Hey! Pikmin. They are made of a small red ball circled by a thin layer of water, with two yellow eyes. They only drip from the ceiling, and are harmless. Throwing a Pikmin on their body or simply just bumping into one is enough to kill it.


The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Hey! Pikmin.
Particularly: Describe the family's names. (Guidelines)

The family name bubblimp is a combination of "bubble" and "blimp". The genus, Pilaruber, is the combination of pila and ruber, Latin for "ball" and "red" respectively. This gives it the literal translation of "red ball", akin to the Red Bubblimp's appearance.
