The Thunderous Burrow-nit is a member of the burrow-nit family in Pikmin: The After Years that uses electricity. Unlike its relative, the Cloaking Burrow-nit, its shell is yellow and the eyespots on it are different colors. Not only can this species skewer Pikmin using its proboscis, it can also electrocute Pikmin it has caught with it too. Anytime the Thunderous Burrow-nit impales a Pikmin, it will electrify both itself and its prey; this usually results in the caught Pikmin being disintegrated, unless the Pikmin is a Yellow Pikmin, in which case it will be eaten after it is electrified. This behavior alone makes this specific burrow-nit extremely dangerous. Thunderous Burrow-nits are typically in groups of two to three. Like with the Cloaking Burrow-nit, its shell protruding from the ground is a blatant indicator of its presence. Yellow Pikmin are the Pikmin of choice due to their immunity to electricity. Purple Pikmin could also stun this creature, making them an alternate choice.

The Charged Burrow-nit is a member of the burrow-nit family in Pikmin: Dusk and Dawn that uses electricity to kill prey. Unlike its relative, the Cloaking Burrow-nit, its shell is a shade of purple, with yellow spots, and a lightning pattern along the sides. The top spike of the shell has a ring pattern near the tip. Aside from that, its body is predominantly orange, its four legs and proboscis have an orange gradient, and its eyes are dark orange. It moves slightly faster than a regular burrow-nit.

A dangerous ability these creatures harness is the ability to transfer electricity between sources of the same element. This means they can establish electricity links with Anode Beetles and any other electrical enemy. Charged Burrow-nits can still impale Pikmin with their proboscis, with the added effect of electrocuting any Pikmin apart from Yellow Pikmin, Glow Pikmin, Nebula Pikmin, Statue Pikmin, which are also immune to being impaled, Twilight Pikmin, and Mechanical Pikmin. They can also produce electricity if there are many Pikmin attacking them, and attacking Pikmin should be whistled away to avoid catastrophe. Purple Pikmin are also able to stun this creature, canceling any electricity links.


Olimar's notes

Charged Burrow-nit / Trilobitins electreclusiva / Burrow-nit family. This speedy specimen is not only able to impale and eat my Pikmin, but also disintegrate them by creating an electricity link, that can even cross between species of the same element! How does this even happen naturally, anyways?!

Louie's notes

Remove the shell and chop its juicy body into 5, thick slices. Then grill on both sides, season, and then serve hot. Side effects may include a tingling sensation in your tummy.

Chacho's notes

Such a pretty shell, such intricate patterns! And its eyes are like gemstones! I could absolutely make bank off of these guys!

S.S. Twilight's notes

The Thunderous Burrow-nit is a subspecies of burrow-nit that can produce electricity. Utilizing a small gland in its body, it can conduct electricity through its small proboscis while eating to immediately kill and absorb the creature into its mouth. Along with this, the creature can also create a small electrical field throughout its body in a process in which it rubs its shell and its slightly hairy main body together to create mass amounts of friction in a short time. Due to all this stored energy, the Burrow-nit can move much faster than other creatures. It also can create small links of electricity with other creatures that utilize such methods. Whether this is a symbiotic relationship or just mere coincidence is not known.
