Red Bulbots are the most common variety of Bulbot, and amongst the easiest to kill. They are usually small, but larger ones can be found occasionally. When awakened, they dash in a straight line towards Leaders and Pikmin. They are easy to dodge, but can inflict quite a bit of damage to Leaders with their bite. The only weak spot Red Bulbots have is their backs which, due to their quick speed and jumpy movements, make it somewhat challenging for one to hit. This weak spot can only be damaged using Bomb-rocks, Rock Pikmin, or a similar Pikmin. When defeated, a Red Bulbot will collapse onto the ground and explode after a few seconds. Yellow Bulbots and Green Bulbots are very similar to this enemy.
