Red Bulborb
The Common Red Bulborb

Scientific Name

Oculus kageyamii russus




field, forest




The Red Bulborb has bulging eyes that come from a stem with the corneia probably supporting the stem and the eyes. It has normal eye color and it has the same nostrils as the Emperor Bulblax. It is a carnivore because of the sharp teeth shown on the side of the mouth. It has a crimson-colored rump with white spots. It is said to look like a small un-pregnant Empress Bulblax without the beelike back.

Olimar's Notes[]

This large organism has the familiar mandibles and cranial morphology of the grub-dog family, as well as the characteristic bulging eyes. As with most grub-dog, the creature's cranium comprises half of its total length and girth. Showing a scarlet abdomen with white spots, this creature is primarily nocturnal, choosing the prey upon smaller creatures returning to their nests. Originally classified as the Spotty Bulborb, further research has reclassified this species as the Red Bulborb. Subspecies of varied color have recently been discovered, but academics are divided into two rival camps over how to handle their classification.

Louie's Notes[]

Plump specimens are best spit-roasted whole, stuffed with a lime and a slab of bacon. Baste frequently to ensure a magnificently moist haunch.

Reel Notes[]

This nocturnal hunter feeds mostly on small animals returning to their nests at night.

Brawl Trophy Description[]

A creature whose Japanese name translates as "spotted crimson bug-eye." These bulky nocturnal animals have white-and-red-flecked rumps that resemble strawberries. Red bulborbs sleep in the day and wake in the evening to feed on small animals. Several colors of bulborb subspecies have been discovered--their classification is a hot subject for scholars.

Pikmin Wiki Notes[]

Red Bulborbs are among the most well-known enemies in the Pikmin games and are often just as much a staple for the games as Pikmin themselves. They were originally known as Spotty Bulborbs until various other subspecies, all with spots, were discovered in Pikmin 2.
