Attacks Eats and poisons Pikmin

The White Bulbear is a member of the grub-dog family in Pikmin: Planetary Encounters and poisonous relative of the Spotty Bulbear. It has a purple backside and a pale face with dark blue lips and dwells inside dark areas to hunt for prey using its incredibly sensitive nose. It has a gland located inside of its stomach which allows it to spew a poisonous fluid from its mouth. The optimal way to kill a White Bulbear would be to use White Pikmin.


Olimar's notes

This peculiar species of grub-dog is one of the most dangerous predators on this planet. Like most other bulbears, this one doesn't sleep and prefers to travel around a set hunting path with its young in search of prey. They are built to perfection with a huge mouth made to eat large amounts of Pikmin and other small creatures. Taking down such a predator would be a great challenge as the beast also has a gland that allows it to spit poisonous fluid at prey. Caution should be taken when dealing with such a beast.

Louie's notes

Inedible. Effects of consumption include horrible cases of nausea and diarrhea.

Attacks Eats and poisons Pikmin

The Putrid Bulbear is a foul-smelling grub-dog appearing in Pikmin: Wide World. No dwarf counterpart of it is ever encountered. Perpetually engulfed in a cloud of poison, Putrid Bulbears spend their time sleeping on land, alone, away from even others of their kind, and wake up upon being approached, touched, or harmed, or hearing a sound loud enough to rouse them from their slumber. Upon waking up, a Putrid Bulbear will pursue Pikmin and leaders in its territory, poisoning any Pikmin that are too close, except White Pikmin, and eating any it can. Like most bulbears, the Putrid Bulbear will flip any Pikmin or leaders in its mouth into the air to land them down its throat. It is unaffected by the poison White Pikmin secrete when eaten. If it tries to swallow a leader, a Putrid Bulbear will chew them up, and then spit them out alongside any Pikmin currently in its mouth with them. It can also blow its noxious breath at distant Pikmin or Pikmin it can't reach, which will not knock them down or over, only poison them. Should they be far enough away, a Putrid Bulbear will eventually find a spot near where it was originally resting and return to its slumber. Notably, Putrid Bulbears stay awake slightly longer than other grub-dogs before going to sleep.

Putrid Bulbears are colorful in appearance and have a body shape and size similar to other bulbears. They have a green face, and their lips and legs are also green. Their eyes have turquoise irises and white sclerae. Their fangs are yellowed, and so are their claws. Their backside is white with purple spots, and their clawed feet are white as well.

Defeating a Putrid Bulbear is usually a reasonably simple process that can easily go wrong. Only White Pikmin can be used to kill a Putrid Bulbear effectively, but objects such as bomb rocks and rocks can also be used to take one down, and Rock Pikmin throws and Purple Pikmin pounds can harm the creature at the cost of poisoning the Pikmin. The optimal method to defeating a Putrid Bulbear is to sneak up behind it as it sleeps, but not so close that it awakens prematurely, and then charge a group of White Pikmin at its backside. The White Pikmin should latch on and begin pummeling the creature before it can even stand up, reducing its health to critical levels by the time it can react. Throwing any type of Pikmin at its eyes will inflict damage to it, cause it to flinch, and make it release any Pikmin it may have in its mouth. If faced with a Putrid Bulbear while unprepared, it should be fled from, but as a last resort, Pikmin should be thrown at its eyes to distract it long enough to make a quick escape. Upon defeat, a Putrid Bulbear will fall dead and its body will cease emitting poison gas.

In ultra-spicy difficulty, the Putrid Bulbear has even more repulsive traits. It sweats constantly, which is harmless until the creature shakes attacking Pikmin off, scattering small beads of sweat around itself that begin to drown any they happen to hit except Blue Pikmin. Perhaps most disgustingly of all, the creature will vomit poisonous sludge when excited, such as when shaking many Pikmin off of itself or eating too many Pikmin at once. The vomit will smother Pikmin and leaders it lands on, also poisoning those Pikmins' sprouts unless they are White Pikmin, and slow anything small that treads through it, but only persists for a limited time. Smothered Pikmin can be plucked or whistled free, and leaders can struggle out. It will not hesitate to eat Pikmin it regurgitates.

The Putrid Bulbear's old appearance (PWW White Bulbear old icon.png).


  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #1 (all difficulties): True to its name, the Putrid Bulbear reeks of body odor, which only White Pikmin can withstand.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #2 (all difficulties): The Putrid Bulbear is easy to wake and is immune to the White Pikmins' toxins when eaten.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #3 (all difficulties): From a distance, the Putrid Bulbear can blow its poisonous breath at Pikmin and leaders.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #4 (ultra-spicy difficulty only): When the Putrid Bulbear shakes Pikmin off, it shakes beads of sweat off too, posing a drowning hazard.
  • PWW Data file icon.png Data file #5 (ultra-spicy difficulty only): The Putrid Bulbear has a habit of vomiting when it gets too excited. Just another reason to not be in front of it.

Olimar's comments

PWW Captain Olimar icon.png This particular bulbear appears to indulge in procrastinating practicing self-hygiene. Why it does this and whether it is deliberate is unknown, as other bulbears fend for themselves quite well without any extra measures. It reeks of body odor, and its breath is rancid. The stench is so bad that it affects pikmin and other creatures as if it were poison! Interestingly, this is one of few bulbear species that can be seen sleeping, but this is assumed to be part of its apparent general lack of self-care.

Shacho's comments

PWW President icon.png Surely I could use these creatures to keep any trespassers and debt collectors away! The only drawback is having to deal with their horrible musk and foul attitudes.

Marie's comments

PWW Marie icon.png I wouldn't recommend having one of these as a pet. I can't even get close to one without feeling nauseous just from the smell.

Louie's comments

PWW Louie icon.png The flavor of this beast's meat is just as pungent as its smell. Only the bravest of consumers should try it after thoroughly cooking it. Its smell lingers for quite some time, so be sure to have a few mints and air fresheners handy!

Dolphin Lander's comments

PWW Dolphin Lander icon.png Fortunately, or unfortunately, I was created without the ability to smell. Olimar and the others always complain of a horrible odor when faced with one of these creatures and how their smell lingers in my hold. I wish I could find out for myself just how bad a putrid bulbear smells... but maybe I shouldn't.
