The Bumbling Snitchbug (or Exposing Snitchbug, as in Olimar's notes) is a creature found in Pikmin 2. It closely resembles the Swooping Snitchbug in appearance, though it possesses more body mass, makes a different buzzing sound, and does not have as distinct a head. The two also behave similarly towards small terrestrial creatures, but instead of targeting Pikmin specifically, this lumbering bug attacks leaders, snatching them up and tossing them to the ground. Captains that the enemy has managed to take hold of are able to free themselves if the analog stick is twirled (which is similar to a Jellyfloat sucking a leader up), or if they have a second pilot throw Yellow Pikmin to combat the Snitchbug. Weighing the beast down will cause it to crash into the ground, where it is easily overwhelmed by the player's Pikmin forces.
- The Bumbling Snitchbug is one of the only enemies who can only harm a captain.
