mature beetleEdit

does any one wonder how a Decorated Cannon Beetle Adult looks and acts

-- Snowy bulborb

I have, actually, but since I have no imagination, I just imagine it as being like an ACB whose shell has a slight reddish tinge. —Jimbo Jambo
Not really. No, never. ... GP

Actually it might look similar to this since it doesnt say learva--Prof. 20:06, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

I agree with you Prof. Pikmin. If it has seeking rocks why would it need a shell? Also, I look at it kind of like this: Which is prettier: A vase or a metal shell surrounding it? Ridly Roar! 23:03, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Olimar's own description (in the articile) says that this is a larval Decorated Cannon Beetle. A beetle by definition must have a shell/hard, rigid wing casings. It doesn't have "larva" in the name because unlike with regular Cannon Beetles, there was no adult form to confuse it with. LapisScarab 19:17, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

In the article, it says that it is never found buried in the ground like Armored Cannon Beetles. Shouldn't that say Armored Cannon Beetle Larva?Pikdude  01:57, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

"This creature is the larval form of a cannon beetle variant known for a diet consisting entirely of eating stones" Olimar called this one, it is a Larva.Marx Wraith 23:15, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

My guess is that it is a more mature larvae, as it has a blow hole. It could just be a species difference, though. Vol (Talk)

Real World BasisEdit

The most obvious similarity is to caterpillars, but check out the velvet worm: it spits out rocks while the velvet worm spits out goo, and it doesn't have true legs just like the ACB and DCB. IAMAHIPO_ocolor 16:21, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

Why's that called a glitch?Edit

Why's the death cry for the DCB and ACBL considered a glitch? It could just be that the death cry for the two larva could just be cut off when the enemy ghost sound is introduced. I mean, it seems a bit too in-depth a sound for it to be a glitch, but that's just me. Pikmin.Fan1991 (talk) 22:26, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

About the Japanese version of Decorated Cannon Beetle Louie's Notes.Edit

I have translated the Japanese version of the Decorated Cannon Beetle recipe into English and am posting it here. In the Japanese version, Louie says, "Tastes better fried than raw because of its high fat content" The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tomoes12 • (talk) • (contribs)
