|Scientific name||Oculus radioactis|
|Attacks||Eats Pikmin, asphyxates Pikmin|
The Acidic Bulblax is a type of bulblax that has fused with radioactive waste. It is green in color and retains its signature melting appearance, mostly due to a side-effect of the radioactive waste. Not only can it eat Pikmin, it can asphyxiate them with a deadly fluid it secretes when it feels threatened. Every Pikmin caught in the range of the attack except for Green Pikmin will be instantly dissolved. They are regularly summoned by the Acidic Emperor Bulblax.
The Acidic Bulblax's ability to secrete acid from its body is largely due to its fusion with radioactive waste. It may also be that it consumes radioactive waste as well. However, since it is digested by the beast, its internal temperature grows hotter, which could result in a nuclear explosion of apocalyptic results. To prevent this problem, the Acidic Bulblax is usually found in colder places. Because of this, it keeps its internal body temperature much cooler, preventing the radioactive waste it eats from exploding. Should this fail, Acidic Bulblaxes sleep during the hotter months, which burns less energy and keeps the beast cooled. As for the acid it produces, it is created in a special chamber inside its body. When radioactive waste is eaten, some of it goes to this chamber which is prepared using a special liquid that is highly toxic, transforming it into a liquid form. It is then transported out of its body to tiny pores on its back. These pores are typically closed while it is unconscious. However, when the Acidic Bulblax feels threatened, it rapidly opens said pores, resulting in acid spilling over its body. This provides it with protection from predators such as Pikmin. It also has the signature ability of all grub-dogs to utilize a powerful bite to subdue its attackers.
