The Foundation Dweevil is a dweevil in Pikmin: Dual Worlds that, unlike most others, does not utilize an element. It often picks up nearby elemental dweevils smaller than themselves by using its arms, which, along with its size, suggests a close relation to the Titan Dweevil, and places them on its head to form a stack of them. Foundation Dweevils are an intelligent dweevil species and possess a basic understanding of Pikmin possessing immunities to a range of hazards and having power in numbers. So, the Foundation Dweevil serves as the foundation for the stack of elemental dweevils it builds over itself, hence the name. Foundation Dweevils do not include Volatile Dweevils in their dweevil stack, but they may be used against one to bring the entire stack down. The Foundation Dweevil will attack by having the topmost dweevil in the stack leap down into one of its claws, at which point the dweevil utilizes its attack. Afterward, it returns the dweevil to the bottom of the stack and later calls the new topmost dweevil down to attack. Alone, Foundation Dweevils are harmless and run away from leaders and Pikmin. A fully grown one, known as the Elder Foundation Dweevil, serves as the boss of Scuttling Sanctum. All Foundation Dweevils' exoskeletons extend beyond the actual top of their legs, creating a sort of niche that other dweevils use for footholds.
