The Munge Dweevil is an enemy in Pikmin 2. Like other types of Dweevil, this creature is commonly seen retrieving enemy corpses and treasures. When agitated by attacks, it will release a cloud of gas that will poison the Pikmin. This suitably makes White Pikmin the best choice in battle, as they are immune to poisoning, but be aware that the munge dweevil has more health than its relatives. Alternatively, as Purple Pikmin can stun any small Dweevil, they will easily defeat one.
Attack it with whites. If not, grab a large load of reds and swarm it then it will die in seconds. Purples also work as they have an ability to stun.
Run up to it and attack it. Using the captains for attacking is ideal since they are immune to any kind of poison.
If you hold the X button and lay down (after you collect the "Five Man Napsack") the dweevil will pick you up and you can ride around on its back for a little. When your ready to kill it, just press the A button to kick its head and stun it. Then just punch it to death. This works for any small Dweevil (except for the Volatile Dweevil).
