Breadbugs are creatures that remarkably resemble bread rolls; hence, they are the namesake of the breadbug family. They can not harm leaders or Pikmin directly, but they can drag both small and rather large objects into their dwellings. If Pikmin are holding onto something when a Breadbug pulls it into its nest, they die.

Breadbugs in Pikmin 4: The World to Free play a more important role, in that they happen to steal the parashield key needed to reach the Trash Kingdom's boss. They must be chased down as a result, and don't come back after being defeated.

Notes

Tike's notes

These creatures' behavior patterns are oddly different from the notes by the founder Captain Olimar. They tend to be more pesky and evil than I thought. It's almost as if they are stealing the keys on purpose! Nah, I believe it is just a coincidence, but furthermore, they seem to be able to eat three times their weight. Now that's something.

Alice's notes

As a psychologist, I can sense the true feelings in animals. The breadbugs are actually kind, but greedy and careless creatures. Heesh, they even eat their own kind! However, the breadbugs we found seem to have a strange pulse in them. If so, they aren't being a breadbug and I have an eerie thought they might be in trouble. Argh, if only I could help them.

Captain Pikmin's notes

Normally I have a solution to these guys, but oddly these ones are more clever than the ordinary breadbug. So I hate to say this, but you might have to use your own brains on this one.

In Pikmin Forever, Breadbugs have an improved appearance, as wrinkles are visible in their blubber and their eyes glow in the dark. Breadbugs reside in dark locations and emerge from their dens to roam in search of food. It sometimes tries to drag a sleeping bulborb to its den, but the bulborb quickly wakes up and moves to another location, not at all minding the breadbug. Breadbugs can be knocked over by Mushroom Pikmin or Rock Pikmin, exposing their soft underbelly, which can be attacked. They have a bit more health than a dwarf bulborb. A flipped Breadbug can be carried to an Onion, but not the ship, to deal lots of damage to it, although the Breadbug can get up while being carried. If a Breadbug carrying spoils to its den is being overpowered by Pikmin, it will drop the spoils.

Breadbugs in Pikmin V have undergone some minor but still significant changes. Their damage is now hardcoded, meaning that a direct hit from a normal-sized Pikmin will do one damage, a direct hit from a Purple Pikmin will do two, a small bomb rock will do five, and both a large bomb rock and getting pulled into the Onion or Hocotate Hauler will do ten, killing it immediately. Additionally, when a Breadbug flips when hit, it completes its roll in the direction it started in, instead of rolling back to its original position to be hit again.

Notes

Brittany's notes

The eponym for the Breadbug family due to its unusually thick segments that protect it from most attacks and happen to look like a bread roll. It is a greedy scavenger who will carry anything back to its den - edible or otherwise - and store it for a later date. The den itself seems to be a live plant that lives symbiotically with the Breadbug, providing it with protection while the Breadbug provides food.

Olimar's notes

The best way to take care of these pests is to make a trap by leaving out an easy-to-carry object, like a Pellet, and then overpowering it once it inevitably comes. If you don't have any good items, it is possible to damage a Breadbug with a direct hit to its back, though it is a very slow method of killing it.

Louie's notes

You might be wondering why such a large and energy-packed quantity of food fetches such a low price. The answer is that one half of it is blubber and the other half has no taste.

Breadbugs are found scattered around the Land of Wonders, roaming freely in their new territory. A Breadbug without a den serves as the boss of the Beginner Territory as the first challenge. The Breadbug in the Beginner Territory is the only one that will refuse to drag objects. The Breadbug is also the only species to be found throughout the Land of Wonders, found throughout every territory. Captain Olimar can assist in carrying the corpses of Breadbugs.
