The Black Bulborb is a rare form of grub-dog appearing in Pikmin: Louie's Adventure. It is extremely ferocious, walking and attacking twice as fast as a common Red Bulborb. It is also constantly awake and roaming areas in which it is found. If one of these creatures spots its prey, it will pursue them at high speeds, not stopping until it kills them or is killed. To defeat the Black Bulborb with as few casualties as possible, amass an army of as many Purple Pikmin as possible and fill the remainder with Red Pikmin. Seek high ground, as it will allow the Black Bulborb to be attacked without being able to reach the leader there for a while. However, the Black Bulborb is notorious for its ability to maneuver around obstacles to reach its prey. Engaging the enemy is still possible without high ground but not recommended. Rain Purple Pikmin down upon the Black Bulborb, causing it to be temporarily stunned, only stopping when it is dead. If no Purple Pikmin are available, throw Red Pikmin instead. Repeat this tactic, but do not leave the battleground for reinforcements. If left alone, the Black Bulborb will regain health at an alarming rate, and if killed, it will still slowly recover health. Upon reaching half of its total health, it will revive to wreak havoc once more.

It is recommended not to engage the Black Bulborb in combat unless necessary due to the complication of Onions in night mode being incapable of storing Pikmin or creating more. However, the Onion will still absorb the bodies, meaning that the body does not have to be abandoned. A Black Bulborb will yield the Black Pearl upon its initial defeat, however, so it may be worth the risk.


Supercomputer's notes

It is a well-known fact that almost all grub-dogs are nocturnal, and it is also well-known that some live underground. This bulborb is a combination of the two, both nocturnal and dwelling underground. It only emerges from holes at night, so little is known about them. Recently, a team of researchers volunteered to stay on the planet after dark to see what creature inhabits the night. They encountered this ferocious creature, and barely escaped with their lives...

Louie's notes

This creature has a natural chewiness similar to beef. As such, prepare the meat in a beef stew with a generous supply of spices and plates.

Violet's notes

"Beware this creature", Louie says.

Its appearance is like that of a standard bulborb, but slightly larger and with a black backside with white spots. It is first encountered on sublevel three of Bulblax Database as a mid-boss, where it appears by falling from the cave ceiling. A few appear from crannies on sublevel five of the Shadows of the Twenty Floors. Lastly, two appear in Cave Time Attack Mode's exclusive stage Dark Dash, appearing in dark areas and from crannies, and must be defeated as they hold the key necessary to proceed.

The Black Red-Striped Bulborb is a fully-grown Dwarf Black Bulborb and will protect its pups at any cost. It has the ability to consume at most twenty Pikmin at once. It can eject spores from its stripes, but only when shaking its body or turning sharply. The spores will transform any Pikmin contacting them in Mushroom Pikmin.
