The Electripede is a centipede-like enemy made up of three body segments, each with two pairs of prong-like protrusions. When struck or touched by Pikmin or leaders, it stops in place and temporarily electrifies itself in self-defense, which illuminates the surrounding area. This can be used to make Bloominous Stemples bloom, but it also can damage leaders without proper protection and stun Pikmin that touch it in this state. Electripedes inch forward like caterpillars and are able to crawl on floors, walls, and even ceilings. They change direction when they reach a corner, and start crawling down the side, the bottom, the other side, or the top again, in a continuous cycle.
