The Empire Deathstool is the final boss of Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator. It is the incarnation of the creature that formed the Complex Parasite, but even its true form is difficult to conceive. The evil being had one command in the Complex Parasite's brain at the time of its creation: launch a stupendous counter-attack if any being can successfully kill the Complex Parasite. When the remaining party arrives at the End, a swirling mass similar in appearance to a mushroom cloud is seen in the middle of the seemingly endless desert. The smoke from the explosion then takes the form of a Puffstool, solidifying into the Empire Deathstool. It is quite large and has many antennae.

The battle against the Empire Deathstool is initially surprisingly simple but becomes absurdly difficult as it progresses, but ultra-spicy spray can make it a bit easier. In this phase, the Empire Deathstool behaves similarly to the Puffstool: getting it to trip will expose it to attack. However, like the Omega Progg, the creature possesses powerful psychic abilities and can utilize them to periodically conjure columns of fire, water, electricity, poison, and acid. It can also produce spores like the Puffstool has that transform Pikmin into Mushroom Pikmin, but they have a much farther reach. When the Empire Deathstool begins sucking in energy, it is preparing to use its spore attack, so one should flee from the boss in the expansive arena it is fought in. Depleting the Empire Deathstool's health to fifty percent will begin phase two of the fight.

Phase two of the fight begins with a terrifying creature partially emerging from the boss's body, revealing its true form as the creature's brain while the top of the Empire Deathstool's cap fizzles and bubbles. The disgusting fungus has a red glowing slit on its front, thought to be a closed eye. During this phase, the Empire Deathstool itself will waddle around blindly as its brain remains exposed and out of focus. The boss and its brain are both harmless during this phase of the battle. The third phase begins once the boss's health has been fully depleted.

Phase three begins with the Empire Deathstool's body going limp and dropping to the ground, lifeless. Its now-awake brain no longer sees a use for its protective shielding at this point, squirming back inside of it and burning it from the inside out, revealing the True Deathstool in all its twisted glory. It unfolds its tattered wings and reveals that it has no discernable feet, and has a large head that houses a large pink eye. Its form can not be completely conceived and is shrouded in a dark cloud, but it can still be fought. In the middle of the storm, where its body should be, is a faintly-glowing ball of light that Pikmin can be thrown onto to damage the True Deathstool. Pikmin that do not latch onto the ball of light will be crushed by the storm surrounding it. The True Deathstool possesses mostly the same attacks as the Empire Deathstool in phase one of the battle, only amplified in magnitude and number. The only attack the True Deathstool does not have at its disposal is the ability to transform Pikmin into Mushroom Pikmin, which is instead replaced by the ability to create an explosion that engulfs its entire form. The explosion isn't very large but is incredibly damaging to everything in its range. The True Deathstool also sacrifices a small portion of its health to use this attack, which also leaves it stunned for a brief time after being used. Upon defeat, the True Deathstool screeches as it shrivels into the desert sands and dies under the ground.
