The Bumbling Snitchbug is a variant of Snitchbug strictly found in underground caves on PNF-404.


Physically, it is a unique-looking snitchbug. Its arms are a dull blue color with small orange spots, ending in singular-hooked hands. It's antenna hold a resemblance to small dead leaves on stems, also having spots located on them. The main body of this snitchbug is lighter in color, with segmented scales on its underbelly whereas the rest of the body is rubbery skin.


Bumbling Snitchbugs hold similar characteristic to Swooping Snitchbugs, but their preference for prey is bizarrely specific - targeting leaders of groups rather than just any known individual. True to its name, it has a sense of incompetence and/or carelessness, making it difficult to capture prey.

It is also known as the Exposing Snitchbug, noted by Captain Olimar that a leader would have to be an idiot to be captured by one.
