Attacks Eats Pikmin, produces Mechawogs

The Mechaborb is a boss grub-dog in Pikmin: Revenge of the Darkfreeze. It has the structural appearance of the standard Red Bulborb but is a metallic yellow color, and the rear has some plates missing, revealing wires and various organs, and a hatch on both sides of its body with a symbol on them. The Mechaborb attacks like a normal bulborb, but sometimes the hatches on its sides open and a machine pops out. The machine has a separate health wheel and produces a single Mechawog after some time. Similar to the Mechawog, the Mechaborb's armored body is too hard for normal Pikmin to penetrate, but Purple Pikmin pounds can eventually tear apart the armor, allowing it to be attacked normally. The machines should be destroyed before they can produce any Mechawogs.


Olimar's notes

So this is the creature responsible for the robotic wollywogs we encountered earlier! This beast is in fact part organic, part machine, so at some point in evolution, a standard yellow bulborb must have fused with a machine. How this happened is still unclear.

Louie's notes

Strip apart the metallic components and chop up what's left for an unrivaled bulborb stew. Warning: may have a slightly oily taste if not treated properly before boiling.
