Red Bulborbs (アカチャッピー, Red Chappy) are enemies from the Pikmin series.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a stage element[edit]

A Red Bulborb can appear on the right side of the Distant Planet stage. It stands in place, looking around and acting as an extra platform. However, standing on it is very dangerous, as it may chomp down on any lingering players and carry them off screen, resulting in a one-hit KO. The Bulborb occasionally opens its wide mouth, similarly quickly eating and OHKOing any character who lands in it.

In Olimar's Final Smash[edit]

In Olimar's Final Smash, End of Day, dusk will fall and Olimar will enter his ship to escape the predators of the planet. When Olimar leaves the stage, Red Bulborbs will constantly attack the players that remain on the field. However, characters like R.O.B. and Pit may be able to escape the furious attacks of the Red Bulborbs by using their up special moves.

Trophy information[edit]

Red Bulborb
A creature whose Japanese name translates as "spotted crimson bug-eye." These bulky nocturnal animals have white-and-red-flecked rumps that resemble strawberries. Red bulborbs sleep in the day and wake in the evening to feed on small animals. Several colors of bulborb subspecies have been discovered--their classification is a hot subject for scholars.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

The Red Bulborb keeps its Brawl roles in Distant Planet and End of Day. It can also appear on the left side of Garden of Hope, but does not interact with the fighters.

In Smash Run[edit]

The Red Bulborb appears as a powerful enemy. It is much smaller than in Brawl, now being about the correct size compared to Olimar. Like all strong enemies it has knockback resistance, can appear as a target enemy, and drops several powerups when defeated. Its attacks include:

  • running forward to stomp the player
  • biting repeatedly
  • jumping backwards, rump-first, dealing strong knockback when directly behind it or dealing a weak meteor on the top of the hit.
  • leaping into the air and snapping

Trophy information[edit]

The Bulborb trophy appears in both versions. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U it is part of the Distant Planet & Indigenous Creatures Trophy Box.

They're known for snapping at fighters and trying to trample them underfoot. If you see one in a group of enemies, you should try to take it out fast—it'll shoot off and bounce around, hitting other enemies as it goes!

Despite their cute appearance, they'll happily gobble up Pikmin! In Smash Bros., they appear on the Garden of Hope stage, wandering around or chasing the poor Pikmin. Thankfully, they don't seem interested in the fighters duking it out.
