Galvanic Jellyfloat

The Galvanic Jellyfloat is an electric member of the jellyfloat family introduced in Pikmin: Wide World. Yellow Pikmin are necessary to fight Galvanic Jellyfloats, as electricity constantly surges through their body and tentacles. Galvanic Jellyfloats are found floating above the ground, much like their relatives, idly exploring in a small territory. When a leader or their Pikmin approach, however, a Galvanic Jellyfloat will attempt to reach out to them with its tentacles and electrocute them.

Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat

Main article: Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat

The Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat resembles a large, blue, floating jellyfish with yellow spots. They attack the Pikmin by inhaling them and trapping them inside.

When defeated, all undigested Pikmin will be recovered.

Lion's Mane Jellyfloat

Main article: Lion's Mane Jellyfloat

This species of jellyfloat is the largest known. Once it is awakened in its chamber, it will slowly fly around the area, occasionally inhaling fire from the Fiery Bulblaxes and Dwarf Fiery Bulblaxes in the area, using it as fuel to spray fire. It can also suck in Pikmin like any regular jellyfloat can.

Moldy Jellyfloat

Main article: Moldy Jellyfloat

They attack by sucking up Pikmin similar to their relatives but instead of eating them they cover the Pikmin in Mold to convert them into Moldmin, then they will release the Moldmin to attack anything nearby, by having the Moldmin attack and carry items back to the Jellyfloat it will injest the item like an Onion does and gains health as a result.

Moon Jellyfloat

Main article: Moon Jellyfloat

The enigmatic Moon Jellyfloat is shorter compared to its relatives, but also wider. Floating a good distance over the ground, the Moon Jellyfloat lacks the ability to inhale Pikmin. Instead, it simply stretches out its bell and descends, trapping Pikmin underneath it like a cage. It will remain on the ground until its captives have been eaten.

Neon Jellyfloat

Main article: Neon Jellyfloat

Though it simplistic that this creature can only attack what it says above, but don't let it fool you. It can shot thunderbolts, shock itself meaning it kills every non yellow on it for a few seconds, and cause tornados to suck you in. It stays really low above the ground but it's really buff and stay afloat until you have 20 pikmin on it. It won't let you bring it down easily though, wait for it to get tired, thats your chance. Or else it will shock/or shake all your pikmin thats on it.

Resilient Jellyfloat

Main article: Resilient Jellyfloat

After the Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat died out with the Greater Spotted Jellyfloat, there were a few remaining stragglers that had rapidly mutated to survive the changing conditions. These jellyfloats, though very few in number, became increasingly aggravated and dangerous. They secrete the same chemicals as a Fiery Bulblax to heat themselves in the cold environments, but the dark smoke it gives off when coming into contact with the jellyfloat's skin is dangerous to all Pikmin.

Terrestrial Jellyfloat

The Terrestrial Jellyfloat is a strange variant form of the Jellyfloat. It is dark red in color, and has brown armor covering the lower half of its bell-shaped head. Its tentacles end in clawed feet, which it uses to walk around after you and your Pikmin. When it's over your Pikmin, it will suck them up and slowly digest them, like most Jellyfloats.
