Winged Pikmin are a Pikmin species with the special ability of flight, allowing them to fly over obtrusions on the terrain, over water, or over pits. They are notable for their large blue eyes, dark pink stripes, and lavender petals, but most importantly their translucent wings. They are propagated mainly using their Onion, although Carnation Candypop Buds may be used as well. They are weaker than other Pikmin types in terms of attack power, although they are still very useful in aerial combat. While carrying an object, Winged Pikmin will fly considerably slowly with it through the air. If multiple types of Pikmin are carrying something that a Winged Pikmin is also carrying, the Winged Pikmin will carry it closer to the ground and will not fly with it. However, if the number of Winged Pikmin carrying is the number of Pikmin required to lift the object, they will lift it into the air, causing any ground-based Pikmin trying to carry the object to let go or to cling on for a few seconds before falling off. It's possible for a Winged Pikmin to walk on the ground like any other Pikmin outside of carrying, which may happen for a variety of reasons.

In Hey! Pikmin, Winged Pikmin behave similarly to Pikmin 3, but have the ability to carry Captain Olimar until he hits the ground if he falls from a certain distance, similar to gliding. While Olimar is being carried, he can descend faster, or perform a short hop to increase the amount of air time. Certain areas have a wind effect that pushes Olimar in the direction the wind is blowing.

Winged Pikmin, also known as Pink Pikmin, is a returning Pikmin type in Pikmin 2... Again?. It is a pink Pikmin with two big, round, bright blue eyes resembling googles, two insectoid wings on its back, and a darker stripe like a bee's around its midsection. They are smaller than even the White Pikmin, and their body shape is unlike that of other Pikmin types. Winged Pikmin can fly, allowing them to easily pass over water bodies, pits, and other impediments other Pikmin can not, but have a poor attack power and digging speed. Additionally, while airborne, most crushing forces will simply knock them back and to the ground, where they are as vulnerable to dangers as any other Pikmin type. Because of this, they can easily wind up in water or down pits. Winged Pikmin will be knocked back if they are thrown into or try to pass through a net, making them the only Pikmin unable to pass through those. Additionally, Winged Pikmin can lift bamboo gates and uproot Flukeweeds. As they lack an Onion, Winged Pikmin are obtained exclusively from the subterranean Spinel Candypop Bud.

Winged Pikmin are the eighth species of Pikmin discovered in Pikmin Forever and the final species discovered in the main story. Winged Pikmin do not have an Onion; like White Pikmin and Purple Pikmin, they can only be obtained from candypop buds. Winged Pikmin can still fly over obstacles and pull up Flukeweeds, and they are still the best in airborne combat. They are a great advantage when used on paper towels; they can lift a paper towel from the stack to carry other Pikmin across obstacles like water and pollution. One Winged Pikmin can carry one non-Winged Pikmin, meaning a maximum of fifty non-Winged Pikmin can be carried. Leaders can not be carried, however. Winged Pikmin can be ordered to carry a paper towel anywhere, or even to follow a leader, but once Winged Pikmin are ordered to drop the paper towel, it tears and disintegrates.

Winged Pikmin are the last Pikmin type discovered in Pikmin V, being found in the Frost Terrace, and have been almost completely overhauled. They move faster when traveling and carrying objects normally, but if a group of Winged Pikmin has lifted an object into the air, their carrying speed is halved; this is usually made up for by their access to airborne shortcuts, unlike their Pikmin 4 behavior. They lift objects from the bottom like other types rather than the top, so they cannot stack with or steal objects from land-faring Pikmin or lift partially submerged objects. Airlifting an object being carried by other Pikmin will also immediately cancel those Pikmin's carrying contributions while they dangle and fall off. In combat, a Winged Pikmin is slightly stronger than in Pikmin 3, but it comes at a cost: when thrown, it will steady itself in the air at the apex of its throw before rushing its target, making it incapable of scoring direct hits. This does give it the benefit of being able to be thrown at high objects or those over an abyss to direct it to them even though they are out of reach. The Winged Candypop Bud is given the name of Cherry Candypop Bud.

They have a high throwing arc and can carry objects such as treasures across gaps if over half the maximum carrying capacity is occupied by Pink Pikmin. When carrying objects across gaps, often any other Pikmin carrying it with the Winged Pikmin dangle and may fall. When they do, one of the Winged Pikmin will fly down and grab the Pikmin, visibly struggling with Purple Pikmin and Rock Pikmin but succeeding regardless, and bring them to solid ground.

Kingdom Therobotania
Phylum Pikosimilis

Family Pikmin
Genus Vivian
Species Curnuonia

Winged Pikmin appear in Pikmin: Treasure Colonization and are the ninth species to be discovered. They have an indigo flower. They are able to avoid many hazards despite not having an immunity to any of them. Being on the ground will make them vulnerable to attacks from the ground and to blunt force. They'll normally fly above water, however, they can still be knocked into it and drown. Because Winged Pikmin can fly, they are extremely useful for carrying objects, and if a Pikmin is falling to its doom, into a pit, a Winged Pikmin can be commanded to save that Pikmin. Additionally, they can pluck drowning Pikmin out of a body of water and bring them to dry land. The body length of a Winged Pikmin is twenty millimeters, and its carrying capacity is four while under the effects of an ultra-sour spray.

Notes

Olimar's notes

I'm still researching why these Pikmin evolved to develop wings while becoming weaker. A theory in the community is that they have a bee-like hierarchy. This could also explain the markings on their body.

Tang's notes

A weak Pikmin species, however, their saving grace is the air! With such wings and dedication, they are more easily able to attack enemies that have taken flight.

Robin's notes

Efficiency at its finest! These Pikmin can traverse many areas with no problem. Just keep them to work on the longer tasks and to fight airborne enemies and we'll be solid!

Winged Pikmin are the last main Pikmin species found in Pikmin: Wide World, and are discovered in Endless Sea. They have no resistance to any hazard, but they can simply fly over most of them. Winged Pikmin have a below-average attack power, high mobility, below-average digging speed, and average throw distance. A Winged Pikmin's defining features are its small, striped body, relatively large, round head, large, blue eyes, transparent wings, and indigo flower. The voice of a Winged Pikmin is much higher and feminine than that of other Pikmin. They are one of the two fastest Pikmin types, tied with White Pikmin, although they carry objects more slowly than they usually move, and like White Pikmin, Winged Pikmin attack at a faster pace to compensate for their lower attack strength. Although Winged Pikmin have their respective Onion, they can also be created by throwing other Pikmin into a Carnation Candypop.

Winged Pikmin prefer to be airborne and will always be so unless they are either knocked to the ground by an enemy, carrying an object that is being carried mostly by grounded Pikmin, or working on clearing most types of obstacles. While on the ground, Winged Pikmin are as vulnerable as any other Pikmin type. When enough Winged Pikmin are carrying an object to be able to lift it themselves and more Winged Pikmin are carrying it than grounded Pikmin are, the Winged Pikmin will take to the air and carry the object that way, leaving the grounded Pikmin below without a task to fulfill. Winged Pikmin can fly over most dangers, such as water or smaller enemies, but cannot dodge anything coming down on top of them, such as a Beady Long Legs' foot or a boulder falling from a cave's ceiling. Additionally, Winged Pikmin may desert a group they are part of to save any nearby Pikmin that fall into a pit. Winged Pikmin may also save nearby, inapt Pikmin that find themselves in a pool of water or acid, although Blue Pikmin and Green Pikmin are more effective at doing so.
