A strange 6-legged crab-like creature with red skin with its body in flames.
The flaming mitite was a recently discovered species of the parasick family. It acts like all parasitic parasicks: it lays its eggs inside the eggs of a different species. However, this member of the parasick family has developed a special organ that produces a liquid that ignites upon direct contact with air. It douses this liquid in massive quantities on the eggs to ensure that its offspring will be safe in the flames. The heat kills the other species' eggs but the flaming mitite's young will be given enough heat to live. This organ does not start to develop until maturity of the creature. Also, should it be threatened, this same liquid will pour all over its body and it will go after the predator. It's also constantly in flames when guarding its young after they've hatched out of the host's eggs. However, should there be no suitable hosts nearby to lay its eggs in, it can put its eggs in a dark area so predators don't eat the eggs. Thus, the flaming mitite could be considered both parasitic and colonial.
Take the shell off, and remove the organ that secretes that flammable liquid (if at adult stage). Then run hot water on it for 5 minutes to make sure none of the special liquid remains. Next (this will require several specimens) mash the beasts together and mix it with some hot sauce. Spread the paste over some cooked meat. Now cut it into little squares. There you go!

It acts like a normal Mitite, however only two come out. They will start to chase the player and can burn Pikmin. Flaming Mitites may also be found sitting in a dark corner.
Strategy to defeat
Instead of a direct hit on the top, Pikmin can actually hit it from the sides. However, Red Pikmin are needed to hit it as they can get past the flames. When defeated, it will drop a spray.
