The Volatile Dweevil is a kind of enemy from Pikmin 2. They resemble a walking Bomb-Rock except that they are Dweevils. Unlike other Dweevils, they will start to detonate as soon as they start walking. They are also known to drop from ceilings. The only way to kill it is to run and wait for it to detonate. However, never run into a corner. If you are in peril you may use Ultra-Bitter Spray to petrify it and then kill it. You will at least get Nectar, or possibly Spray.


Olimar's NotesEdit

The Volatile Dweevil is one member of an insect family known for mimicking objects by carrying them on their backs. The Dweevil family exhibits a most unusual characteristic whereby the creature's behavioral patterns actually changed based upon the object the creature carries on its back. The Volatile Dweevil has one of the most potent of all the species within the Dweevil family, due to the habit of carrying explosive devices. Approach with caution and/or body armor!

Louie's NotesEdit

The scorching species combusts upon contact with the tongue. Only edible by the adventurous and asbestos-tongued.

In Pikmin: Redemption, the Volatile Dweevils aren't that different from their Pikmin 2 version. The only changes are the type of bomb-rocks they can hold (regular, giant, and nuclear), there are large and small Dweevils, and the skin of the legs of a Volatile Dweevil has taken on the appearance of the bomb-rock they have.

Olimar's NotesEdit

The Volatile Dweevil is a member of a family of insects known for carrying large objects, usually ones I need, on their backs. What is different about this kind is that they like to carry Bomb-Rocks, Giant Bomb-Rocks, and Nuclear Bomb-Rocks. Since the objects they carry determine the Dweevil's behavioral patterns then we can only assume that for some reason this kind of Dweevil picks bomb-rocks instead of shiny things. Undoubtedly these creatures do not know these are explosive and can set off other bomb-rocks, usually with humorous results.

Louie's NotesEdit

Carefully remove the bomb-rock. Then beer-batter the legs and deep fry them for five minutes The legs create a taste you will not soon forget.

Pikmin NotesEdit

One of these monsters killed my family and destroyed my original onion. Luckily I found another of my kind's Onions and joined them.
