|Empress Bulbax will unroll and deal damage by rolling to the sides. Stay either in front or behind her to avoid damage.
|Drafty Gallery, Sublevel 4
|Puffy Blowhog has a powerful wind gust attack that can blow you and your Pikmin back. Deal damage until it’s stunned, or freeze it to create an opening.
|Secluded Courtyard, Sublevel 4
|Target the Foolix’s tail to remove its protection. Unleash as much damage as possible to reduce its health bar before it goes back up. When it recovers, retreat Pikmin. Rinse and repeat.
|Kingdom of Beasts Final Sublevel
|Focus on one Emperor Bulbax at a time. It performs a deadly shout attack, so stick to its sides but target its face to deal damage.
|Seafloor Resort Sublevel 4
|Masterhop will leap and stomp the ground, dealing damage to Pikmin. Deal damage, but as soon as he leaps, retrieve them to avoid losing them.
|Wait for Burrowing Snagret to attack. When its beak is buried in the dirt, it’s time to deal damage. If possible, use Ice Pikmin to freeze it and maximize this opening.
|Target the Crusted Rumpup’s back to deal the most damage. Avoid leaving Pikmin in front of it, or they will be swallowed.
