Olimar's Notes[]

This loathsome creature is in fact a parasitic form of Pikmin that has infected a bulborb. Unlike Pikmin that nest in onions, this parasitic relative spends its life inside the body of a host, usually a bulborb. Juveniles fall in line and mimic the actions of their parent until maturing to full independence. By burrowing its root-like limbs into the nervous system of the host bulborb and infusing it with natural hormonal excretions, the Bulbmin is able to control virtually all of the host's body functions. However, the host's voracious appetite seems impossible to suppress.

Louie's Notes[]

Grind the meat and season with allspice, salt, and ground white pepper. Press the seasoned meat into satchels, then pan fry them with onions. Prior to serving, smother the brats in dijon mustard and sauerkraut. Buns are required, baby!

This article or section contains information about a non-canon game, Pikmin 4:Pikmin Adventure, made by Legendlink.

In Pikmin 4, Bulbmin seem to have adapted to living outside of caves. They are first found after defeating the Giga Bulborb on the first day.

Pikmin 3[]

In Pikmin 3 (Flish addition) Bulbmin are seen outside of the Bulborbs and serve as annoying enemies that attack the captains. Pikmin do not attack them and they do not attack pikmin.

Pikmin: Wrath of Mr. B[]

These guys reappear, both large and small varieties. However, if a bulbmin is killed, a green pikmin ghost will float up, just as if one of your own pikmin had died. This can be a nuisance if you're fighting a lot of bulbminz.
