The Erupting Cannon Beetle is an enemy appearing in Pikmin 5. This type of lithopod has bright yellow glowing eyes with ochre-colored slitted pupils. It is significantly harder to defeat than its relatives, as it not only sucks air through its mouth rather than its blowhole and has twice the health of an Armored Cannon Beetle, but also shoots large bomb rocks that no Pikmin type can resist. Pikmin must be thrown or charged at its mouth, which will cause it to choke, take away an eighth of its health, and cause its shell to open up, allowing its body to be attacked. Eventually, the Erupting Cannon Beetle will get up and clamp its shell shut without warning, causing any Pikmin trapped to be crushed. Even if lots of Pikmin are lost, its corpse will give a hundred seeds.

The Volatile Armored Cannon Beetle is a lithopod family appearing in Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator, although its larval form is absent. This creature is identical in appearance to the Armored Cannon Beetle except for its eyes, which glow red instead of turquoise, and its mouth's interior, which is red and yellow. The boulders it fires from its mouth after inhaling through its blowhole are loaded with bomb rocks and will detonate upon contact with an obstacle or surface, although Pikmin will simply be flattened. Additionally, its boulders roll much faster than those of a standard Armored Cannon Beetle. Throwing a Pikmin to clog a Volatile Armored Cannon Beetle's blowhole while it inhales causes it to open its wing casings and flee, exposing its vulnerable backside to harm. Beware the numerous primed bomb rocks it scatters as it tries to escape.
