The Antenna Beetle is an enemy introduced in Pikmin 2. It is a member of the Kettlebug family.


[edit] Strategy

The Antenna Beetle is not able to cause direct harm to Pikmin, but it can and will kill them. Using its wings, it is able to create a high-pitched noise similar to the whistle of the Captains, which draws Pikmin to them. As the Antenna Beetle hops around quite often, it is able to kill them by dropping them into ditches.

When you're ready to attack, simply throw Pikmin on. Using Purple Pikmin to stun it, then attacking it with other Pikmin, works best.

[edit] Notes

[edit] Olimar

"This creature is able to control the Pikmin by way of the peculiar frequency of its roar, but its only objective seems to be defensive in nature, as it stops Pikmin from attacking and forces them to run away. This beast prefers humid, dimly lit environments, and has been known to inhabit empty and discarded containers. For this reason, it's wise to thoroughly ventilate any specimens that are recovered. Lifting off with one of these creatures in the hold can lead to a rupturing of the specimen during decompression, resulting in an explosive mess."

[edit] Louie

"Extract meat from the exoskeleton and sear on all sides in a hot wok to seal in the flavor. Top the dish off with a splash of spicy peanut sauce."
