This article or section presents information pertaining to Pikmin: Shadows of the Future, a fanon game created by DrTapeworm.
The Buildrone is a robot in Pikmin: Shadows of the Future used by the Z Syndicate to construct massive factories and other buildings for their colonization projects. It was built for strength and can pick up objects many times its own size. It is a stumpy humanoid robot that hovers above the ground and has a pair of arms with large hands. It is always seen with some concrete bricks around it. It stays in one spot, stacking some concrete bricks and building. When it sees a leader or Pikmin, it will pick up a nearby object and throw it at them. The weight of the item determines what damage is caused; a small object like a 1-pellet will only knock some Pikmin away, while a big, heavy one like a dead Armored Cannon Beetle will almost certainly crush some Pikmin while deflowering the rest. It can also pick up Pikmin and use them against their own kind. To defeat the Buildrone, simply throw large amounts of Pikmin, preferably Purple Pikmin, onto it until it dies.
