The Snow Bulborb (ユキチャッピー) is an enemy found in Pikmin 2. They are another subspecies of Dwarf Bulborb, in which these particular ones resembling miniature Hairy Bulborbs without any fur on its back. They are as similar as any other Dwarf Bulborb, although they have lower health than the other varieties, and have significantly less than the Dwarf Bulbear. They are first found in the Emergence Cave, making them the first subterranean species discovered. They are most commonly found near Hairy Bulborbs, or in cave terrain covered by snow or ice. If this creature is petrified in the Piklopedia, when it breaks out of the stone it runs around eating any thrown Pikpik Carrot at a much greater speed than normal. The Whiptongue Bulborb in Pikmin 3 is very similar in coloration.


Olimar's Notes

"Like the dwarf red bulborb, the snow bulborb is a member of the breadbug family that seeks to survive through imitating the appearance and behavior of a bulborb. Its pale coloration and blue spots make for easy identification. In particular, this organism mimics the hairy bulborb, but it is of course unable to grow the hair that gives the hairy bulborb its name. However, as the hairy bulborb has been known to lose its hair in certain circumstances, the snow bulborb is an effective mimic that is often mistaken for a member of the same species."

Louie's Notes

"Best grilled and served hot over a bed of fresh spinach and crumbled blue cheese."

Nintendo Player's Guide

"Since they're often found in the snowy cave sublevels, white Snow Bulborbs tend to blend into their surroundings. As is the case with other small Bulborbs, you can squash the creatures with direct hits. No Pikmin can do the job better than purples."

Killing strategies


If a considerable amount of Pikmin are available, Olimar and Louie must swarm them and the enemy should die before eating any. Alternatively, they must aim and throw a large amount of Pikmin at its back. If one lands directly on it, it dies immediately.


Olimar and Louie must run around it and punch it until it dies, avoiding its attacks. Similarly to the strategy of defeating Adult Bulborbs, they must attack its back to evade it's attacks.
