The Buzzsaw is a boss buzza appearing in Pikmin: The After Years. It is a large wasp-like creature resembling the Stingerr, except it is purple, has two arms instead of six legs, and its back has a row of spikes. On its head is a crown, signifying that it is the king of Stingerrs.
The Buzzsaw's main attack is impaling Pikmin and leaders with its stinger, an attack lethal to Pikmin hit by it. It can charge towards Pikmin and leaders to sting them directly, indicated by it wiggling its stinger, or simply fire its stingers at them. It can also grab Pikmin with its hands and throw them at a wall, depetaling them. Upon losing one-fourth of its health and periodically afterward, the Buzzsaw will curl up and roll around its arena. If it hits a wall while doing so, it will immediately recover. Starting upon reaching half-health, the Buzzsaw will periodically summon Stingerrs to aid it in battle. As the Buzzsaw is always airborne, just out of reach of any Pikmin throw, the only way to attack it is to trick it into opening itself to attack. To do so, simply dodge its charging attack; the Buzzsaw should get its stinger stuck in a surface, exposing its weak spot, its tender underbelly. As the Buzzsaw has high vitality, using Purple Pikmin to stun it is recommended.
This buzza's name is a pun on the word "buzzsaw", a type of saw it resembles while rolling, and the sound bees are known for, buzzing. Furthermore, the Buzzsaw's appearance is based on the Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest boss King Zing.
