The Spornet is a small flying insectoid creature that carries a large puffball. It has a yellow face, a blue body, two small antennae, bee-like wings, and a pair of big red eyes. Spornets fly on a set path but will deviate from it if they see Pikmin or leaders. It attacks by hovering over its targets and dropping toxic purple spores onto them. If any non-White Pikmin touch a spore or are caught underneath it when it lands, they will be killed. If a Spornet loses sight of its target, it will resume its patrol. Spornets can be taken out with a single Pikmin throw. They often fly high above the ground and are best dealt with using Yellow Pikmin. A close relative of this creature, the Winter Spornet, lives in cold areas.
