Electric Pikmin are the fifth Pikmin type to appear in Pikmin: New World. They are found in a small grove of mugnut trees near the dropoff near the end of the Hall of Gales. Despite their name suggesting they would be, Electric Pikmin are unrelated to electricity; their name refers to their coloration, an electric blue. They are just slightly bigger than White Pikmin and have four arms, allowing them to scale trees, cliffsides, and even the undersides of some rock formations and providing them with extra stability so they never trip or fall. This makes them very resistant to the gusts created by aerial blowhogs and the strong wind that blows over their homeland, the Hall of Gales. Because of this ability, they are extremely difficult to be deflowered. They are only slightly faster than Purple Pikmin despite their smaller size but are very useful for carrying items as their extra arms give them the strength of two Pikmin. Electric Pikmin can not be thrown very high but can climb up to places, marked by climbing trails, that are unreachable even by Yellow Pikmin. However, the most common usage of these Pikmin is to climb up mugnut trees to collect their giant mugnuts. Once picked and on the ground, all types of Pikmin can swarm a mugnut to break it open and get the item inside. These Pikmin are also immune to the effects of Nutmites that may infest the nuts. Additionally, Electric Pikmin can create ladders from the ceiling to the ground in certain parts of areas and dungeons, allowing leaders to get enough height for thrown Yellow Pikmin to reach objects. They can also hit plants on the ceiling to lower down already-made wooden bridges to the ground to allow Pikmin to cross. Their Onion is a lot smaller than most other Onions but still bigger than the Rose Pikmin's. Because of this, only forty Electric Pikmin may be stored within the Electric Onion at a time. If any more are made, they will be unable to enter the Onion and thus will be trapped on the planet's surface until sundown and be counted as dead. They can also be propagated by throwing other Pikmin into Aquamarine Candypop Buds.
- “I have named these curious Pikmin Electric Pikmin due to their radiant electric blue skin. They also apparently have two sets of arms which may be the result of a duplicated gene. They use these extra arms very much to their advantage. They appear to have developed a relationship with the common plant known as the mugnut that they depend upon to use its massive nuts. Once they manage to open them, the Pikmin will eat whatever they find inside them while, in the process, covering themselves in the tree's pollen and seeds. Mugnut trees may rely entirely upon the travel of Electric Pikmin going from one plant to another to diversify their species. This form of plant/Pikmin symbiosis appears highly effective as this particular plant species is now found all over the Pikmin planet. I am starting to wonder if it is truly possible for all of these changes to have happened in the time that I have been gone.”
