Scientific name Scarpanica doofenia
Family Scarpanid

The Bumbling Snitchbug is a scarpanid that closely resembles the Swooping Snitchbug in appearance, though possesses more body mass, makes a different buzzing sound, and does not have as distinct a head. The two also behave similarly towards small grounded creatures, but instead of targeting Pikmin specifically, this lumbering bug prefers to attack leaders, snatching them and tossing them to the ground. When carrying a leader, the Bumbling Snitchbug flies higher than usual. Leaders that the enemy has managed to take hold of will dismiss their army but are able to struggle free. Weighing the beast down will cause it to crash into the ground, where it is easily overwhelmed by Pikmin.

In Pikmin: Ultimate Doom, the Bumbling Snitchbug acts more aggressively as it will slam leaders onto the ground fairly hard, reducing their health by one-fourth of the maximum if they lack a defense upgrade. Underground, Bumbling Snitchbugs are encountered on sublevels one, three, and four of Titan's Denizen, sublevel three of Dark Kingdom, and sublevel seven of Molten Mezzanine.
