Tropical Varkids are insectoid enemy found in Sir Hammerlock vs. the Son of Crawmerax, the fifth DLC for Borderlands 2. They are a form of varkid brightly colored to match the environment of the Wam Bam Island.
Tropical Varkids attack by quickly skittering up to their enemies and scratching/biting them or by leaping or flying at them. Unless they are in a very large group, they are little more than a nuisance and can be easily dispatched with one or two melee attacks.

- Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
