A Bucculus (ブチュルス Buchurusu) is an enemy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode, and first appears in the The Lake level. A Bucculus looks like a plant with large, red lips and a purple poison zone on the back that looks like a strawberry. It appears as lips on the ground. If one goes near it, it will pop up making cartoon-like "boing" noises and attack by kissing the player, filling up its poison zone and causing damage. If a Bucculus misses its grab attack, it will bounce around. After a few seconds, it will plant itself again. If a Bucculus with a full poison zone is killed, it will most likely drop a Maxim Tomato. It can also drop Food otherwise.
A Subspace Army enemy found firmly planted in the ground, with only its lips showing. These lips, by the way, are covered with spikes that stick in its victim to... (Get this!)...suck out vitality. Basically, this results in serious damage. The torso area has a poison zone where it stores vitality. The Bucculus not only looks offensive-- boy, it's rotten to the core.
- This monster may be based on the Succubus, a mythological monster from medieval times, a demon who seduced men to steal their life energy.
- Bucculus may also based on Leap, an enemy from the Kirby series. However, Leap hovers off the ground with wings.
- Interestingly, Bowser can't get damaged by a Bucculus. The Bucculus will be on Bowser's nose and only the kissing sound and a cling will be heard. However, if he jumps over one he can get damaged. A similar effect occurs when a Mushroom-enhanced player approaches a Bucculus.
- When a Bucculus sucks a character's vitality, it makes a slashing sound effect.
