Empress Bulblax is one of the bosses found in Pikmin 2. It is related to Emperor Bulblax from Pikmin. Empress Bulblax has markings and features that are similar to those of a Red Bulborb, but has a bigger body and consists of five segments.
It can be found in a few caves throughout the game. It can be found on the final sublevel in Hole of Beasts, eighth sublevel of Frontier Cavern, the eleventh sublevel of Hole of Heroes and on the fourth sublevel in Emperor's Realm in Challenge Mode.
"Initial observations placed doubt on the capability of the grub-dog family to support a strong ant- or beelike social structure, but recent studies show the family is capable of such complexity. The egg sac of the largest female grub-dog within a given range swells to dramatic proportions in response to environmental changes, such as the sudden depletion of prey species. These females temporarily take on the role of pack matriarch. Also, in pack formation it has been observed that nearly all males not involved in species reproduction undergo natural sex changes. The characteristics of such specimens are quite intriguing indeed."
