In Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator, the Berserk Dweevil is an enormous version of the dweevil subspecies known as Webber Dweevils. It serves as the boss of the fourteenth and final sublevel of the Web of Terror. It resembles a Webber Dweevil, although much larger, sporting the characteristic black and dark blue skin of the creatures, as well as ghastly white eyes that stretched out so as to make the creature look completely terrifying. Its head is vulnerable to attack but its weak point is its eyes.

The strategy against the beast is not exactly hit-and-run, being more so hit-and-take-cover-as-the-dweevil-goes-berserk, then rush out and attack more. Once it is blinded from throwing Pikmin at its eyes, it'll rely on noises like the whistle or the sound of Pikmin. Split up forces and take them to opposite sides of the boss. Make one leader whistle or throw a Pikmin so the dweevil will begin heading their way. Switch control to another leader and attack the creature from behind while it charges towards its target. Make sure to regroup and ungroup as necessary, and make sure to bring ultra-spicy spray for this fight. Beware the Webber Dweevils that will appear during the fight.

The Titan Weaver Dweevil is a greater dweevil appearing in Pikmin: Wide World as the boss of Colossal Hollow. Initially suspended high above a web-covered pit in the center of its arena with a strand of its silk, it can not be seen even with the KopPad's camera function or its flash. However, it drops from the ceiling when Pikmin and leaders begin harassing the Weaver Dweevils inhabiting some of the holes dotting the ground. In doing so, remaining Weaver Dweevils in the arena emerge from their dwellings while some more appear from the abyss below to take their places, and a few rapidly descend from the ceiling. Afterward, it will unleash a piercing, human-like scream that echoes throughout the area, and then proceed to pace about frantically, inadvertently skewering anything under its sharp-tipped legs. It periodically idles in place to look around nervously, screech, or fidget about, usually before viciously attacking nearby Pikmin and leaders. Its most mild attacks involve spitting balls of webbing at distant Pikmin and leaders to trap them, spewing a sheet of webbing at any that are closer to itself to smother them, or simply grabbing up to five Pikmin in each pincer to devour them or one leader in each pincer to repeatedly bite them. Leaders trapped in webbing or grabbed by the Titan Weaver Dweevil can free themselves by struggling, but Pikmin trapped in webbing can only be whistled out; there is no saving them from being eaten. Unlike ordinary Weaver Dweevils, the Titan Weaver Dweevil has no reaction to fire, and can not be harmed by it.

The Titan Weaver Dweevil is an enormous spider-like insect that has a glossy black exoskeleton, dark gray joints, an ovoid body supported from above by four long, curved, bulky legs that each end at a fine point, a pair of arms each terminating in a pair of pincers, a pair of large, blank, white eyes on either side of a symmetrical cluster of smaller eyes of the same color, and a pair of mandibles that each have three mint-colored bristles on the outer sides of their ends. It usually holds its arms around its body, as if holding itself.

What makes the Titan Weaver Dweevil all the more fearsome beyond its size and appearance are its disturbing behaviors. In addition to its idle behaviors, the Titan Weaver Dweevil can summon more Weaver Dweevils to aid it in battle once at least some are killed. Upon coming across one of their corpses, the Titan Weaver Dweevil will quickly snatch it up, wrap it in threads, and either affix it to its body for protection or throw it at Pikmin and leaders to knock them down. When a wrapped corpse is detached from sustaining too much damage, it falls to the ground and harmlessly crumbles apart into nothingness, much like after being thrown. Perhaps the Titan Weaver Dweevil's most alarming trait is its unhinged behavior; when some of its spawn are killed, it is sufficiently harmed, or it feels like doing so, the Titan Weaver Dweevil will undergo a period of mania, having a tremendously increased movement speed and attack frequency for a limited time, unleashing hysterical wails and screeches all the while, inadvertently invoking panic in Pikmin throughout. While undergoing a manic episode, the Titan Weaver Dweevil will swing its body and arms to knock Pikmin and leaders down and away and deliberately try to impale them on its legs, and the creature's lesser kin keep their distance from it. Fortunately, the Titan Weaver Dweevil is equally vulnerable to harm all over its body no matter its mental state, but has high vitality and regularly shakes attacking Pikmin off. Upon defeat, it harmlessly stumbles about while flailing its arms and its skin bubbles, it babbling and sobbing wildly in its death throes, shortly before toppling over and going limp. During this, any remaining Weaver Dweevils flee. When the Titan Weaver Dweevil hits the ground, the White Onion falls from above onto it, bounces off, and lands on the ground with a subtle thud. Any remaining Weaver Dweevil corpses in the arena can be taken as bonus rewards.

In ultra-spicy difficulty, the Titan Weaver Dweevil's manic episodes last twice as long but happen slightly less often. Additionally, the creature frequently summons smaller groups of Weaver Dweevils to replace fallen ones formerly part of the larger groups.

  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #5 (ultra-spicy difficulty only): The Titan Weaver Dweevil's manic episodes happen often, much like its pleas for help from Weaver Dweevils.

Olimar's comments

PWW Captain Olimar icon.png The titan weaver dweevil is an immensely terrifying creature not only because of its size and strength but also because of its unpredictable behaviors. One moment, it's content and minding its own business, and the next, it displays an uncontrollable fit of rage and desperation before returning to normal as if nothing ever happened. Whether this is normal for its kind, the result of a particularly traumatic experience, or the reason for it to have become a matriarch of the colony in the first place is unknown.

PWW President icon.png D-DORRIS?! Why are you a giant spider?! ...I... I exaggerated a bit there, but I'll be darned, it sure acts like she does sometimes!

Marie's comments

PWW Marie icon.png I don't want to say much about this creature. It reminds me of one of my aunts. And my dysfunctional family.

Louie's comments

PWW Louie icon.png Inedible. The meat is tough, bitter, and repulsive, almost as if it were rotting.

Dolphin Lander's comments

PWW Dolphin Lander icon.png All while the crew fought this creature, I was scared for them. The sound of it shrieking and wailing is burned into my memory... But I'm glad everyone made it out alright! I'm just glad I wasn't there to see it personally. It probably would've... I don't know, rattled me like I was a cocktail shaker. Or a maraca! That wouldn't sound very good...
