The "Puffy Blowhog" is a species found in all three Pikmin games. It appears as an airborne pig-like creature, with the ability to blow air from its snout. This air is capable of removing a Pikmin's flower, reverting it to a bud or a leaf- however, this spray of air cannot directly damage pikmin. It becomes a greater hazard on floors with Elemetal Hazards, such as an endless pit or electricity.
"This species of blowhog uses internally generated hydrogen to inflate a flotation bladder and hover above the ground. The creature's electrified pulse creates a sash of color that flows along the surface of its body, making it a particularly beautiful blowhog species. Precisely how it is able to internally stabilize its highly explosive hydrogen and simultaneously generate electricity remains a mystery. The puffy blowhog blows leaves and grass around to eat the insects underneath. It maintains midair buoyancy by using its fins and releasing air through blowholes. This enables it to float effortlessly, even in the breeze. In times of danger, the puffy blowhog can decompress its flotation bladder for a rapid escape from predators."
"Slice this creature's feather-light skin into triangles, deep-fry until crispy, and salt generously. Makes the perfect scooping chip to accompany fresh mango salsa!"
"Instead of breathing fire, this species uses its hydrogen to float."
