The Waddlepus is a small purple octopus-like creature with several yellow pores covering its back. They have green eyes and small O-shaped mouth that hides a large yellow pore. The Waddlepus is also an aquatic enemy and can be encountered underwater as well as on land.

Waddlepuses are generally passive creatures. They are always found sleeping and wake up only when Pikmin or a leader is nearby. Once disturbed, the Waddlepus will inflate itself and slowly waddle towards the leader and their Pikmin. If Pikmin are latched onto the Waddlepus when it inflates, they will be thrown off. Once inflated, the Waddlepus can then shoot out a stream of bubbles from either its mouth or from the pores on its back. These bubbles do not harm Pikmin or leaders but rather trap them inside. The bubbles will eventually pop, but they can be prematurely popped by throwing Pikmin at them. The Waddlepus is of moderate size and moves very slowly, making it an easy target in battle.

The Waddlepus makes a reappearance in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs and appears in the Marsh Territory. As they did in Pikmin 3, the Waddlepus can blow bubbles to trap Pikmin and Captain Olimar in. Along with that ability, it has a new one: squirting ink to distract attackers. When sprayed with ink, Pikmin caught in the cloud will simply stand as they would if they did not have a task. While the Pikmin are distracted, the Waddlepus will retreat to a different area. Waddlepi are always found underwater, and thus can only be attacked by Blue Pikmin. Waddlepi will rarely be willing to leave any body of water. Captain Olimar may assist in carrying the corpse of deceased Waddlepi back to the Onion.
