The Carnivorous Candypop Bud is deceitful candypop bud that appears in Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator. While it may take the guise of any species of candypop bud, it does not convert Pikmin into other kinds of Pikmin; it instead swallows and ingests any that are thrown into it. Carnivorous Candypop Buds may even be of colors corresponding to Pikmin not yet discovered, potentially fooling inexperienced leaders into throwing members of their squads into them. To make matters worse, they may sometimes be located beside true candypop buds, which must be used to quickly solve a timed puzzle. Swarming a Carnivorous Candypop Bud will force it to reveal its true form, it struggling and then unearthing itself to waddle in no particular direction, using the leaves around its base to move. Throwing Pikmin at one of the detrimental flowers to harm it is ill-advised as doing so will only result in Pikmin deaths.
