The Fiery Dweevil is an enemy in Pikmin 2. Dweevils like to pick up treasures and defeated enemies and put them on their bodies. When there is something on their body, they can't be damaged by Pikmin or the captains until the body or treasure is taken off. To take it off the body, just throw Pikmin on the Dweevil's body or punch it several times. This particular species of dweevil, when agitated by attacks, will release searing flames that will set Pikmin on fire. This makes Red Pikmin the best choice in battle. Also since Purple Pikmin can stun and home in on any small Dweevil, they will also work well.
