Scientific name Mitivius infiltratus
Family Parasick (unofficial)

Mitites are small, pink creatures with white shells and six legs. They cannot directly harm Pikmin but do cause any in their vicinity to run in panic, which can inadvertently lead them to danger, such as a hazard. When stumbled upon, they appear in a swarm and just need to be alive in order for nearby Pikmin to panic. Purple Pikmin are the only type of Pikmin who are not disturbed by this enemy, and are extremely effective against them because their pounds instantly kill any in range.

Any egg, both on the ground and from a Honeywisp, has a chance of containing Mitites. They can also burrow up from under the ground in specific locations, either when Pikmin or leaders draw near or an Emperor Bulblax roars. Finally, they are also released from the bodies of the Raging Long Legs if it has been defeated before. The enemies start to scuttle around aimlessly as well. Any Mitites that are not killed will eventually burrow underground after a set amount of time.

Every creature in the swarm drops a pool of nectar when killed, which makes them valuable for building a flowered army.

Notes

Olimar's observations

While not threatening, Mitites can really be a pain without any Purple Pikmin. I never realized on my last trip how much I needed them, since I found the purple so early on. This time, combating them won't be as much of a joke...

Cookin' with Louie

As creepy and unsettling as these things are, that shouldn't turn you off from giving them a chance!

In Pikmin: Connection of the Worlds, Mitites may be found in a colony. The entrance to the colony looks like a lump on the ground, and Brown Pikmin can dig at these spots to reveal the colony. It is rare but possible to find tiny eggs, which are in reality Mitite eggs, in place of ordinary eggs, and interacting with them will cause a swarm of Mitites to come up from the ground around it.

Notes

{{notes|Olimar's notes|It seems that not all mitites lay their eggs inside another species' eggs. Recent observation on the species shows a regular parasick digging in the ground, possibly making a colony. There is much debate over this new discovery, but the scientific community has agreed that there are two main types of parasicks: parasitic parasicks, which lay their eggs inside the eggs of another species, and colonial parasicks, which create an underground colony consisting of several tunnels and chambers. The reason why colonial mitites act the way they do might be because there are no available hosts nearby, and yet need somewhere to lay their eggs. Male mitites will start digging a colony and will create a special chamber where eggs can be laid. As the colony grows, mitites will grow up and go out into the world and lay their eggs. This is the, currently, most accepted theory about colonial mitites. More fieldwork will have to be done to prove this theory. Also, it has been noted that there have been reportedly seen parasicks laying their eggs above ground, and if this reported type of parasick does exist, it could be considered a pseudocolonial parasick.

In Pikspore, Mitites are just as annoying as they were in Pikmin 2. Progglings serve a similar purpose to them.
