A Bucculus (ブチュルス, Bucculus) is a parasitic enemy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary, and first appears in The Lake level. A Bucculus looks like a plant with large, red lips and a purple poison zone on the back that looks like a strawberry. It appears as lips on the ground. If one goes near it, it will pop up making cartoon-like "boing" noises and attack by kissing the player, filling up its poison zone and causing damage. If a Bucculus misses its grab attack, it will bounce around. After a few seconds, it will plant itself again. If a Bucculus with a filled poison zone is killed, it will most likely drop a Maxim Tomato, but occasionally drops Food otherwise. The player does not need to weaken a Bucculus to turn it into a trophy with a trophy stand.
HP and damage taken
A Subspace Army enemy found firmly planted in the ground, with only its lips showing. These lips, by the way, are covered with spikes that stick in its victim to... (Get this!)...suck out vitality. Basically, this results in serious damage. The torso area has a poison zone where it stores vitality. The Bucculus not only looks offensive-- boy, it's rotten to the core.
