The Webber Dweevil is a dweevil in Pikmin E: Remastered. It exhibits strange behavior, acting more like a real-life spider instead of a dweevil, creating webs and hiding in them, waiting for prey to fall in. Once it spots any Pikmin, leaders, or enemies in its web, it will spring down from the ceiling from the environment, and ruthlessly consume them, no matter their species, meaning it could potentially even eat other dweevils.
- “Strange, this creature acts unlike any other dweevil family member, instead opting to act akin to a wracknid member. It is possible this creature serves as some form of a false leader to that family.”
- “Remove the organs and eyes for proper preparation. Once this is complete, remove the legs and toss them, as they have little to no meat in them. Boil the head in water for about 5 minutes for a good crust, then cook it in the oven at around 300 degrees, for about an hour. Once done, you will be rewarded with a delicious meal that can feed your whole family!”

The Webber Dweevil is a recently-discovered dweevil in Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator that exhibits prominent differences compared to the majority of dweevil species, which are generally known to use elemental attacks and pick up objects to mimic them. It is larger than other dweevil varieties and hides in large fungal growths that seem to be of the same kind that cripples Burgeoning Spiderworts, potentially meaning that the Webber Dweevil itself is a carrier of the spores that suffocate the plantlife. The spores and the dweevil share a symbiotic relationship; the spores benefit by having plenty of vegetation to feed upon, and the dweevil spreads out the spores on a web, hoping to entice creatures that search for food underneath, only to be taken by surprise when the massive creature rises from the webs.
Don't recklessly attack molds that may hold plant life or treasures underneath; molds are sticky and pose a threat to leaders and Pikmin alike. If a Pikmin army is led into a mold, quickly whistle them to free them before the nearby Webber Dweevil gets the opportunity to attack. The first time a mold is discovered, the Research Pod warns that the mold is coated with a super-adhesive substance. In order to defeat the Webber Dweevil, toss a single Pikmin into the web to lure it out, then aim well and throw Pikmin at its body before it can eat too many of them. When there are multiple Webber Dweevils however, this can pose a problem. Dealing with Webber Dweevils on their turf becomes easier when Black Pikmin are used. Be aware that Webber Dweevils sometimes roam freely in search of prey, and may not always be hiding in ambush.

The Weaver Dweevil is a greater dweevil appearing in Pikmin: Wide World. Each one skulks beneath or behind webs that cover divots and alcoves, and pits in some cases, and some may have more than one opening for the creature to idle by. Occasional movement beyond the web it occupies is often the only indication of its presence other than light reflecting off its body. When its web is disturbed or it is approached while wandering, a Weaver Dweevil will attempt to grab up to two Pikmin, one in each pincer, and devour them one after another, or grab one leader with both pincers and repeatedly bite them until they struggle free. A Weaver Dweevil will emerge from its dwelling only under certain circumstances, the most common being that its web has been destroyed, upon which it will begin spinning another one. However, they may also emerge to place a nearby small corpse or 1-pellet onto their nearest web, if available, as a trap, also wrapping it in a thin layer of webbing. Pikmin and leaders that touch its webbing or try to carry something covered in it will become stuck. Leaders can struggle free, but Pikmin must be whistled. Notably, slightly smaller, weaker Weaver Dweevils are summoned in large quantities by the Titan Weaver Dweevil during the battle against it, during which they can appear from above and below.
Weaver Dweevils are fairly-sized spider-like insects that have a glossy, dark blue exoskeleton, dark gray joints, a spherical body supported from above by four long, curved, bulky legs that each end at a fine point, a pair of arms each terminating in a pair of pincers, a pair of large, white eyes on either side of a symmetrical cluster of smaller eyes of the same color, and a pair of mandibles that each have three mint-colored bristles on the outer sides of their ends. It usually crosses its arms behind its back, although it can cross its arms in front of itself or simply have them dangle.
Conflict with a Weaver Dweevil typically isn't a trivial affair. As a defensive creature, it prefers to remain on the other side of its woven barrier from would-be dangers, and only target anything foolish enough to become caught on its web. This presents an immediate problem as the Weaver Dweevil will be virtually unreachable until its web is somehow destroyed such as by most sources of blunt force, which can also crush the Weaver Dweevil to death. Once its web is destroyed, it leaves its dwelling to weave another web, during which it is finally vulnerable to attack, though it will not hesitate to go on the offensive. When sufficiently harmed, it will attempt to retreat to its dwelling regardless of whether it completed its web. Additionally, it moves more slowly while actively being attacked. The optimal way to eliminate a Weaver Dweevil's web, and the creature itself, is with fire, which they frantically scramble away from if they can escape; otherwise, they burn alive, screeching agonizingly all the while. If coaxing it out of its dwelling isn't feasible, simply avoid it. Upon death, a Weaver Dweevil will spasm shortly before inverting its body and curling its legs, but if burnt to death, it will simply collapse.
In ultra-spicy difficulty, Weaver Dweevils can spew a long-range stream of thread to incapacitate distant targets. They can do so whether they are peeking out from their dwelling or in the open.
- Data file #1 (all difficulties): Weaver Dweevils skulk behind their webs there is something nearby to use as bait.
- Data file #2 (all difficulties): Fire will scare a Weaver Dweevil out of its hiding place and cause it to flee.
- Data file #3 (ultra-spicy difficulty only): Weaver Dweevils can spew a stream of webbing to incapacitate distant targets.
- “The weaver dweevil is a solitary creature that lives out its entire life in the same dark, dank place for most of its life. It hides closely behind a web that small prey easily sticks to for it to grab and eat. Occasionally, it will use a nearby carcass to lure in somewhat larger creatures to eat, which seldom works.”
- “EEK!! They're just like the spiders in Hocotate Freight's basement!”
- “A weaver dweevil won't be happy unless it has a nice little pocket to nestle in, so unless you have a couple of ditches on your property, live near a sinkhole, or happen to call a giant wheel of swiss cheese your home, I can't recommend having one as a pet.”
- “After removing every strand of fine silk wrapped around the creature's body, cut into the beast for its bitter, liquorice-flavored meat. It's not my favorite, nor should it be anybody else's.”
Dolphin Lander's comments
- “Well, if this isn't one of the more terrifying dweevil species out there. It just sits there, waiting, and reaches out to prey to grab and eat. And when it doesn't have a home to call home, it comes out after you!”
