Red Bulborbs are common enemies in the the Pikmin series. They inhabit the Distant Planet. Their appearance consists of the body: red ball with white dots, and yellow face with two eye stalks, and small weak legs. In Pikmin, they try to devour Olimar and his Pikmin if they get close, but can be defeated and killed, where their dead bodies can be used to produce new Pikmin in the Onion.
They made an appearance alongside different elements from the Pikmin in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is the main hazard of the stage Distant Planet. One appears to the right of the stage, and it sometimes opens its mouth. During that time, all players that enter its mouth may be eaten and then dragged quickly offstage for a KO or self-destruct. Landing on its back is generally safe, but the Red Bulbord can leave the stage. Also on the background of the stage, another Red Bulborb appears alongside a Cloaking Burrow-nit and a flower. In the Final Destination form of Distant Planet of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, they are absent.
During Olimar's Final Smash, Olimar enters his spaceship to escape any stage he is currently on while Red Bulborbs constantly attack all players remaining on the stage racking up damage, before he returns again later.
They also made an additional appearance in the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS mode, Smash Run. The Bulborb is much smaller than its previous iteration, now being about the correct size compared to Olimar. It is considered a boss enemy, meaning it has more health than normal enemies, its attacks are stronger, and it rewards players with bigger stat upgrades. It may also be the requested enemy to be defeated during events. One of its attacks is stampeding. It can also chomping, attacking multiple times in the front. If the player is behind it, it can slam the player with its rear, although there is some setup time.
