The Peacap Puffstalk is a small sporovid found in the files of Hey! Pikmin. It was apparently to be a variant of the Puffstalk and appears identically to it except for its green cap and antennae. It would have walked about rather than appearing from holes in walls.

The Peacap Puffstalk is a species of sporovid appearing in Pikmin Evolution. It retains the same color scheme as it was originally planned to have in Hey! Pikmin, but with a darker shade to its green cap. Like its close relative, the basic Puffstalk, the Peacap Puffstalk lives inside holes located on the edges of cliffs and ravines, usually over an abyss, and lives either alone, across multiple holes, or in groups, with each having their own personal hole. The Peacap Puffstalk differs from its common relative in its battle tactics, as rather than crush Pikmin, the Peacap Puffstalk shoves them with great force. While this attack doesn't kill Pikmin directly, the force is so great they will be guaranteed to be thrown off the edge and into the abyss. Some Peacap Puffstalks are situated in ways where they shove nearby enemies away from themselves and sometimes inadvertently toward Pikmin. Peacap Puffstalks can also be found in mounds on the ground, where they will fling anything above them upwards, leaving affected Pikmin in a panic.

Like the normal Puffstalk, the Peacap must be pulled out of its hole in order to defeat it, in this case with 15 Pikmin due to having an even sturdier root structure than the common Puffstalk. The Peacap will fly out of its hole when pulled out, leaving no corpse to collect and only a few tiny seeds of sparklium. However, the ones placed in mounds can't be pulled out due to being too fast, leaving them as obstacles that should be avoided. While the Peacap Puffstalk may not be any more dangerous than its normal counterpart, it's still a surprise threat that should be accounted for at all time.
