Pimon is a miniboss stalker found in the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve usually alongside the skag Tumbaa. They have been spotted spawning in different areas of the Preserve, but typically near the entrance of the Natural Selection Annex building on the east side.



  • Killing both Pimon and Tumbaa within ten seconds of each other completes the Ride Together, Die Together challenge worth +10 Badass Rank.
  • Pimon was previously bugged to where it would spawn very rarely after the mission Doctor's Orders, making both completing the challenge and farming it very difficult. Tumbaa would usually appear alone among the regular enemies, without Pimon anywhere in the level. After the Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode Update, Pimon will now spawn more regularly.
  • There was a bug where Pimon would not spawn if Swallowed Whole had been completed.
  • Pimon resists explosive elemental damage by 50%.
  • Pimon has an increased chance to drop the legendary The Transformer shield.


  • Pimon and Tumbaa are references to the characters Timon and Pumbaa from Disney's The Lion King.
    • Interestingly enough, the animated television series based on the film features a pair of evil doppelgangers of Timon and Pumbaa named Pimon and Tumbaa. Whether this was a deliberate reference or coincidence is unclear.
