Ujadani are very small, orange bugs that scurry about in large swarms situated in a specific location. They ignore leaders, but once a Pikmin draws near, the Ujadani closest to it will start swarming around it. They either move around the Pikmin, hop around it, briefly shake, or jump onto it and let go after a brief moment. The creatures can be attacked by Pikmin, which do so on their own accord even while following a leader. Each time an Ujadani is killed, it has a high chance of releasing nectar or spray drops. Pikmin that are not White Pikmin are affected by the invisible poison the swarms release when attacked or while Pikmin are near, although this occurs so rarely that the threat is negligible.

The Ujadani, commonly misspelled as Ujidani, is a returning enemy appearing in Pikmin 2... Again?, after over two decades of absence. The Ujadani resembles its Pikmin 2 incarnation, being an odd little creature resembling a yellow octopus, with 10 short, pointy, purple legs, two red eyes, and a beak-like proboscis. It also now belongs to a family, the fireglow family, being the larval form of the Illuminating Fireglow, creatures that appear during the sunset and night expeditions. The Ujadanis still move in swarms but can appear in caves and at any time of the day rather than on certain days. When defeated, they disappear, leaving behind a short-lasting poison cloud that suffocates all Pikmin except the White Pikmin.

The Golden Ujadani, also known as the Wood Ujadani or simply Ujadani, is a species of Ujadite in Pikmin Evolution. They resemble smooth yellow ticks with beady red eyes, though their tiny size makes these changes hard to notice. Golden Ujadani appear in the more forested areas of the overworld, hidden inside deep alcoves and other secluded recesses, though they have a notable hatred for higher temperatures, not appearing during any heat wave. Their small size makes them very difficult to track and find, so a keen eye is needed to locate them. Golden Ujadani cluster around a single dirt mound and act similar to ants, though a few can be spotted patrolling the local area. Sometimes there is a chance for the mound of a Breadbug to spawn as a mound for Golden Ujadani instead, especially if the Breadbug was recently slain. The small size of the Golden Ujadani leaves them easily predated by the larger fauna, particularly members of the snavian and burrow-nit families, so they often won't last long even after being found. Golden Ujadani have a particular liking for nectar, often being found swarming around an egg. However, they alone are too weak to break the egg, so by having an outside force do it for them, they can slurp up the nectar and take it to their den. Following them reveals the location of their den, which is often crawling with dozens upon dozens of other Golden Ujadani. They are incredibly frail, meaning a single hit can kill them, but can produce puffs of poison to scatter Pikmin, meaning Roach Pikmin are the best type to kill these enemies with due to their resistances. Golden Ujadani don't drop anything to carry back but have a high chance to drop large amounts of nectar and a few sparklium seeds, and the mound they live in can be dug up to reveal many different pellets and sparklium seeds to collect. Finding a Golden Ujadani nest often means access to a wealth of valuable resources.


Ivy's journal

Among the smallest creatures on the planet, Golden Ujadani are mainly foragers that live in forested areas. While they lack a traditional eusocial structure, this species seems to be capable of forming large packs, with younger specimens acting as foragers and older specimens staying at home caring for the young. During winter, most members of the pack die, and their dens tend to be taken over by Breadbugs. However, they often spread the eggs across a large distance, increasing the range of the Golden Ujadani.

Fry in oil until golden brown, then sprinkle a light coating of salt and pepper. Makes a great fried food to serve with a sandwich.

Marvin's strategy guide

They say 'pick on someone your own size', but since we're bigger than these little guys, we may be the ones who pick on the little guy. At least they drop good loot.

Those bugs are quite petite... but I detect sprays! – The ship, upon discovering the Ujadani

The Ujadani is a rare and elusive enemy in Pikmin: Decayed Leaf. They resemble tiny, orange bugs, similar in size to a Pygmy Spectralid. They have two eyes with red sclerae, six purple legs, and a small, orange proboscis that pokes out of its front.

The Ujadani usually appears in groups of thirty, but they may even appear in groups of fifty. They are extremely rare, and only appear in specific areas of every area on days that are intervals of thirty, starting on day 31. They don’t attack Pikmin, as they simply skitter around, but they have poisonous properties that make it so only White Pikmin can go near them. They only take one hit to kill, and drop nectars when they’re defeated, although there is a 75% chance to drop a spray of any type.

On the correct days, simply head over to places where Ujadani swarm with a small group of White Pikmin. Attack them to easily farm large amounts of sprays through these insects. When the Ujadani are killed, they are documented in the Piklopedia, unlike in Pikmin 2. Clearing a whole squad of Ujadani for the first time will grant the "Ujadani Popper" achievement.

In Overlord mode, the Ujadani have a 25% chance of not appearing in their respective areas.


Olimar's notes

I remember finding these strange insects a while back, but I forgot to document them. I punched myself in the gut for that error. These small insects release toxic gases through their skin as a defense mechanism to combat the massive amount of predators that try to hunt them, mainly Dweevils. They seem to feed off of spiderworts and other plants, due to their natural sprays and nectars they emit when they are killed. These nectars are stored in their stomachs and fed to the hundreds of young they produce when they mate.

Louie's notes

These tiny insects can be seared to a crisp, but don’t burn them. Burning them is common due to their size. When finished cooking, dip them in hot sauce to add their naturally spicy flavor.

President’s notes

Their pointy noses remind me of the Red Pikmin. If only they were as friendly as them... and less smelly...

Overlord’s thoughts

More small insects. Like REALLY small. I could fit a thousand of these bugs in my hand. I’d prefer not to, they smell like rotten eggs.

The Ujadani beetles appear in Pikmin: Infection in Progress, and are found in most areas. Ujadani beetles are exceptionally abundant in Withering Terrace, though smaller swarms appear in Fungal Grotto, Noxious Expanse, Polluted Creek, and Toxic Barrens. They are ignored by all creatures and even sometimes harmless crawl onto them without them reacting. Ujadani beetles can not attack or be attacked.

Their queen serves as the final threat that the President must defeat.

Ujadani are the main cause of the infection that has critically altered and weakened the Distant Planet. Previously being nothing more than a way to farm vast amounts of nectar and sprays, Ujadani beetles have inadvertently caused an epidemic that had infected, altered, and mutated wildlife by spreading their infectious plague across the Pikmin Planet. Although the general population of Ujadani beetles had decreased significantly by the events of Pikmin 2, the population skyrocketed during the events of Pikmin 3, and ultimately climaxed by Pikmin: Infection in Progress. The amount of altered wildlife had risen more the larger the Ujadani population got. Most of the wildlife encountered on PNF-404 have been severely affected by the highly-contagious disease the Ujadani have passed.

Few species are either naturally immune or simply carriers of the virus; some of these specimens are Withering Blowhogs and Phosbats. Other species have ultimately weakened or gained strengths, or have remained neutral; some are Ghoulish Snitchbugs, Vampiric Bulbears and their young, and Undead Water Dumples.
