Bulborbs (Japanese: チャッピー Chappy) are, more or less, the main enemies of the Pikmin franchise. They are red ladybug-like creatures with no arms, eyes on stalks, and only two legs that are members of a larger group of creatures known as the Grubdogs, which also includes Bulbears, Water Dumples, and their leaders, Emperor and Empress Bulblax.
Typically, a regular Bulborb will be found asleep during the daytime. As long as you don't wake it up, it poses no threat. However, they come alive at night, and eat any of your Pikmin who aren't in a "safe spot". Wake it up, and it begins chasing you and your Pikmin, possibly eating them. The main strategy to kill one is to throw a Pikmin onto its back.
Oddly enough, the Dwarf Bulborb, a clearly smaller version of them, was put in the Breadbug family at some point. This relocation was never fully explained.
