Bloodbath is one of the more gruesome bosses in Pikmin: The After Years. It initially appears as a large, floating red eye with a vertical slit pupil, but later forms a mass of dark matter around itself to serve as a body surging with red energy, complete with a tail and disembodied, clawed hands. Late in the story, Bloodbath is revealed to be one of the three forces, alongside the Smoky Progg and Dark Matter Warrior, commanded by Zero Two; coincidentally, all three do not appear in Remembrance Ravine. Additionally, Bloodbath is the younger relative of Zero Two and the offspring of the Dark Virus. Furthermore, in Galactic Warpzone, wherein a more difficult version of every boss, under the influence of dark matter, is refought, Bloodbath, the Smoky Progg, and the Dark Matter Warrior remain the same as all three are under the substance's influence.
In its first form, Bloodbath's only attack is to ram into Pikmin in an attempt to depetal them and knock them down. The only way to harm Bloodbath is by throwing Pikmin at its eye, which is unfortunately too high for the mighty Purple Pikmin to reach. After its health is fully depleted, Bloodbath seemingly disappears into dark matter, but then reappears in a much stronger form, beginning phase two of the battle. In this form, Bloodbath's main attack consists of firing stars that will explode on contact, killing any Pikmin in the blast radius, which is smaller than that of a bomb rock. It also occasionally uses its hands to slash Pikmin in half, instantly killing them. When its veins glow blue, call every Pikmin off of its eye, as it is about to blink, instantly killing any still attached. When one-fourth of Bloodbath's health is depleted, it begins occasionally releasing blood from the veins covering its body; the resulting puddles eventually form into Bloodlexes. When one-half of its health is depleted, Bloodbath begins charging a devastating attack, indicated by its eye glowing a gradually more intense hue of yellow; once fully charged, Bloodbath projects a deadly laser beam that instantly kills any Pikmin and downs any unprotected leader it hits. After it concludes its laser attack, Bloodbath becomes temporarily open to attack while it stops to rest. If the Reflector has been obtained, which is by defeating Bloodbath in the Secluded Cemetery, the specter's laser can be reflected back at it, momentarily stunning it and rendering it defenseless, although it will immediately begin its next attack upon recovering instead of stopping to rest as it does normally. Upon defeat, Bloodbath's eyeball gruesomely tears apart from its body, and the body and hands disintegrate into dark matter. Bloodbath's eye can be recovered for fifty seeds.
The only way to refight Bloodbath again is by completing story mode.
