Red Spectralids are Spectralids with red-colored wings that act much the same as other Spectralids. Their abilities vary from each game.
In Pikmin Forever
This article or section contains information that relates to the non-canon game Pikmin Forever, which was created by Scruffy, a user on this wiki.
In Pikmin Forever, Red Spectralids act exactly as they do in Pikmin 3, requiring only a touch to kill and leaving a drop of ultra-spicy spray upon defeat. As such, a Red Spectralids in Pikmin Forever is exceedingly rare. Its small body only requires one Pikmin to carry, and only yields a single seed or a single metal unit. More details will be added about it later.
In Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet
In Pikmin: Return to the Distant Planet, Red spectralids can be taken out just like any other spectralid, but it gives more seeds(4) and takes more pikmin to carry(2).
