The Giant Breadbug is a large breadbug shaped almost perfectly cubical, resembling a whole loaf of bread. It acts the same as normal Breadbugs, but is harder to damage by "rejection" from the pod. The Giant Breadbug can instantly replenish its health if it collects an object into its den.

Notes

Tike's notes

Umm... who knew Gwarf was capable of controlling beasts? An Armored Cannon Beetle, and now this. How did he even control its hunger?

Alice's notes

I just knew it! The poor thing was being controlled by that madman Gwalf. Don't worry, guys; once we stop that wretched dictator, you can live your hungry, selfish, but free lives.

Captain Pikmin's notes

I don't know what to say. Your best bet is to ram its summons into it, but I heard that Purples can put a dent on its bulky skin. Plus maybe you can trick it by feeding it to the Onion. Ha! That's a traditional trick.

Giant Breadbugs in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs appear and behave exactly as they did in Pikmin 2. Three wander about the central chasm of the Loaf Territory, one in each of the three sections that are separated by bramble gates. If a Giant Breadbug walks through a crowd of Pikmin, it may crush a few of them by stepping on them. Defeating one will force it to emit a cry, alerting any nearby Breadbugs to drag its corpse back to the respective den of that Giant Breadbug to resurrect it. Once the Giant Breadbug revives, it rises from its den, behaving normally again.

The Giant Breadbug is a breadbug miniboss in Pikmin: Spark. It appears in the Cavern of Cobwebs and at the Fertile Savanna. In the Cavern of Cobwebs specifically, it kidnaps Abel after he crashlands into the cave the first time. It lives in a section of the area, known as Breadbug Basin, surrounded by smaller kin. To rescue Abel, the breadbug can be defeated directly, or its den can be bombed using bomb rocks tossed by Goo Pikmin. The latter method is recommended due to the long distance between the den and Research Pod. Aside from that, the Giant Breadbug is the same as it was in its initial incarnation.

In Ultra-Spicy Mode, the Giant Breadbug becomes faster while pulling items and becomes even faster if it senses its den is destroyed. Additionally, a white powder covers the top of its coarse body.

Notes

Abel's medical journal

Unusable. The creature is more interested in stealing my stuff than helping me

Lyn's sale review

A great tracker for truffles and other rare items. Just make sure you take precautions in it not taking those items.

The Giant Breadbug is a breadbug miniboss in Pikmin: Treacherous Treasures. It is large, being almost triple the size of a typical Breadbug, and is cubical in shape, almost resembling a loaf of bread. It behaves similarly to other breadbugs, dragging corpses, treasures, and pellets to its burrow when it comes across one. Upon dragging a corpse or pellet into its den, a Giant Breadbug has its health replenished to a degree according to the object's size: five, twenty, forty, and seventy percent respectively objects that are or are the size of 1-, 5-, 10-, and 20-pellets. Apart from having more health than its smaller relatives and being able to recover health by taking objects into its den, it also regenerates health at a steady pace. The Giant Breadbug emits oinking noises when looking around, being damaged, or dragging an object.

There are a few, often unconventional, ways to harm a Giant Breadbug. The standard process of damaging any breadbug is waiting until it grabs onto an object and then swarming it with as many Pikmin as possible. Doing this overpowers the creature and causes it to drag behind an object while it is carried to the ship or an Onion. Using double the amount of Pikmin as is needed to carry an object is recommended for this strategy as if not enough are used they will have no bearing on the breadbug and possibly be dragged into the creature's den and killed. When the object is delivered, the Giant Breadbug is brought up with the object and has its body slammed into the craft, taking out about one-tenth of its health.

Should there be no objects around, another way to damage a Giant Breadbug is to pelt it with Purple Pikmin or Rock Pikmin. A Giant Breadbug is difficult to damage with Pikmin directly, as none have any effect except Purple Pikmin pounds on top of it and Rock Pikmin throws anywhere at its body. Its tall stature makes it hard to land a Purple Pikmin on top of it, but each successful hit takes away about one-twentieth of its health. Each Rock Pikmin hit can make it lose its balance, causing it to roll to its side before righting itself, and each hit takes out about one-hundredth of its health.

The Giant Breadbug appears in Pikspore as the boss of the Infantile Fortress and some later caves as a recurring miniboss. It has much health and tries to flee when attacked. It is still incapable of directly harming Pikmin, however.
