The Slippery Dweevil appears in Pikmin: Dual Worlds. This species of dweevil spits an oily substance from a pair of holes on its mandibles. Specifically, it sprays it in front of itself while it moves, allowing it to slide around, using its hind legs to shove itself far distances. Despite its name, the Slippery Dweevil isn't actually coated in the substance.

Attacks Produces oil

The Oily Dweevil is a lesser dweevil appearing in Pikmin: Revenge of the Darkfreeze. It is a black dweevil with red eyes and feeler bristles. It flees from nearby leaders and Pikmin, and when attacked, will release oil that makes most Pikmin, except Black Pikmin, and leaders temporarily unable to attack. Oily Dweevils are most quickly and easily defeated using Purple Pikmin, but Black Pikmin are also effective because of their lubricant resistance. Leaders may also punch the creatures to death.


Olimar's notes

It appears this particular dweevil species senses unrefined petroleum in the ground, being able to dig with its huge mandibles and drink it. However, this does not seem to be their diet, but as a tool for self-defense. When a predator attacks the dweevil, it will swiftly unleash its black treasure, making the assailant unable to attack. During this time, the dweevil is able to make an escape.

Louie's notes

Unless you drain ALL of the oil from the dweevil, the meal will have a slight diesel-y taste to it. Cook it up for an excellent steak!
