Electricity is an element found in the Pikmin game series, and found in many, many Fanon games. It usually comes in the form of broken electrical conduits sticking out of the ground, between which arcs of electrical discharge jump. If any Pikmin touches an electric current, they will be instantly fried, with no chance to save them. Yellow Pikmin are completely immune to this hazard.
Some enemies also utilize electricity as a weapon, for instance, the Anode Dweevil electrifies itself when attacked. Some enemies also use electricity as a defensive covering, like the Supersonic Bulblax. Yellow Pikmin generally should be used against electricity-wielding enemies.
Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs
In Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs, electricity is used mainly in the Spark Territory of the Land of Wonders. It does not instantly kill any non-Yellow Pikmin, but does stun them until whistled at, providing them with the chance of being killed.
