|King of Bugs|
|Appears in||Pikmin 2|
|Treasure Hoard Number||201|
|Series||Titan Dweevil Series|
The King of Bugs is actually just Louie. Olimar saved him after the Titan Dweevil (fourteenth sublevel of the Dream Den) was defeated, and apparently, it was advisable to put him in the Ship's Pod because his seat was taken by the President. Louie now insists that everyone address him by his "proper title", the King of Bugs. According to the sales pitch in the Treasure Hoard, Louie hijacked a "colossal insect's brain". It's suggested that this colossal insect is in fact the Titan Dweevil, and Louie used it to attack Olimar. Olimar himself claims the possibility that Louie was in control of the Titan Dweevil is absurd, but the Ship approves of this theory.
Unusually, Louie has gotten heavier, and now requires 5 pikmin to carry in Pikmin 3.
"Louie is back! Somehow, he survived a horrific ordeal with a freakishly large, weapon-wielding titan dweevil! I entered a hole with an army of ferocious Pikmin, grimly determined to save Louie from the titan dweevil, but it seems that he was perfectly fine all along. I can't understand how he managed to avoid being eaten. Hmmm... He's always had an unusually close connection with insects, and I know he loves to cook them! Maybe he wasn't kidnapped after all... Could he have been controlling that beast all along?! No... that's craziness! Although... he does insist now that we address him by his 'proper title', the King of Bugs."
"A new employee of Hocotate Freight, Louie is often silent. nobody knows what thoughts lurk in his mind. He appears to operate on the same wavelength as insects, often with dangerous results. After he was kidnapped, he somehow managed to hijack a colossal insect's brain!"
- Strangely, Louie is worth 10 Pokos even though he is not sold
- King of Bugs and Compelling Cookie are tied for least valuable treasure
