The Titan Dweevil is a large member of the dweevil family. Unlike other dweevils, its only natural attack is to lash out with its pincers, which does no damage and is done only to get Pikmin off it; the creature is dangerous only because of the weapons it carries. It is initially burrowed into the ground in such a way that only the treasures it is carrying are visible. When approached, it rapidly rises from the ground and attacks.

The Titan Dweevil has four weapons at its disposal: the Flare Cannon, which projects a jet of fire, the Shock Therapist, which produces electric nodes, the Monster Pump, which sprays a series of water-filled bubbles, and the Comedy Bomb, which emits streams of poison gas. Each of them can be knocked from the beast's use and salvaged as treasure. Pikmin must be thrown at a weapon, either while it is mounted on the dweevil's hide or on its hands. Sufficiently damaging a weapon will cause it to begin smoking, and the effects of its use to be more dangerous and potent; the Flare Cannon has a farther reach, the Shock Therapist's nodes can activate even while moving, the Monster Pump produces water at a faster rate, and the Comedy Bomb emits four jets of poison that may spontaneously and randomly change direction. Damaging a malfunctioning weapon further will detach it from the Titan Dweevil, which will not pick it up again.

Before an attack, the Titan Dweevil chooses which weapon to use from the available ones, with more damaged weapons having a higher chance of being chosen. Additionally, right before using an attack, the creature's armor will temporarily change to the color that symbolizes the hazard used by the chosen weapon.

After all of its weapons have been broken off, it will lose its armor, revealing the pale yellow underneath. It can be freely attacked and does not have any counterattacks at this stage other than shaking off Pikmin. When defeated, the Titan Dweevil melts into a bubbly, bluish goop.
