In Pikmin 4: The World to Free
This article or section presents information pertaining to Pikmin 4: The World to Free, a fanon game created by New Pikminjp.
Blast Pepperbugs are a species of breadbug in Pikmin 4: The World to Free that have been fitted with internal explosives. They will wander the area as a normal Breadbug would. However, Blast Pepperbugs lack the signature ability most breadbugs possess: the ability to drag objects. Instead, Blast Pepperbugs will slowly follow their target upon sighting them, though they will lose interest in their target if they wander too far away. When a Blast Pepperbug nears its target, however, it will begin to flash red and emit beeps, both of which increase in frequency after a few moments. About five seconds after activation, the Blast Pepperbug will take itself and its target out in a violent, fiery explosion. Note that when a Blast Pepperbug begins its countdown, it can not move, providing enough time to escape from the creature before it can cause any damage.
- “Yikes! Blast Pepperbugs are mechanically altered, but they are still breadbugs. So, sadly, whoever created these was also doing a dreadful deed.”
- “Although these beasts have nothing more to do than blow themselves up, it makes me wonder if they actually still have emotions as their organic cousins do.”
