Iridescent Glint Beetle (オオガネモチ, Millionaire) is an enemy from Pikmin 2.


Iridescent Glint Beetles are golden, sparkling versions of Iridescent Flint Beetles that drop items such as pellets when hit in the same way Flint Beetles do (but in greater quantities), and are much more rare. Instead of dropping nectar like Flint Beetles, they drop doses of Ultra-Spicy Sprays, and underground variants will drop treasures. They are incapable of directly harming Pikmin. When it appears, its shiny body distracts all nearby idle Pikmin, causing them to chase after it.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

In Smash Run[edit]

Iridiscent Glint Beetles appear as harmless enemies. When launched they drop gold, with the exact amount dependent on how far they're launched. After being launched five times, or after enough time elapses, they will dig underground and escape.

In Smash Tour[edit]

As one of the possible random events, some Iridescent Glint Beetles appear on the board. If a player walks into any of them it will drop treasures such as items and fighters.


The Iridescent Glint Beetle trophy appears in both versions.

North AmericaSuper Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Hope you're not scared of bugs... In Pikmin, these guys drop nectar, but in Smash Run they drop coins instead. They hide, waiting for fighters to get too close...then strike! They're tough to catch, but your reward for success is coins, coins, coins. They'll slink away to sulk after being properly robbed.
EuropeSuper Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Hope you're not scared of insects... These guys can drop nectar in Pikmin, but in this game, they carry coins instead. They'll leap out of the ground when a fighter gets close, and scurry around madly. They're hard to hit, but you'll just have to keep at it if you want these coins! Once they've dropped all their spoils, they'll go underground and sulk. Aw.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U A golden creature from Pikmin 2. They don't pop up very often at all, but when they do, they scuttle around speedily. When you flip them over, they drop nectar and rare treasures. In Smash Bros., they appear in Smash Tour, where you can bump into them to make them drop extra fighters!
