The Flighty Joustmite is an enemy that has the ability to fly, unlike other burrow-nits. It acts much like the Cloaking Burrow-nit and the Joustmite, in that it lashes its proboscis out to eat Pikmin, and has a fleshy area for the Pikmin to attack. The Flighty Joustmite is not very common and is only seen in a few areas.
The Flighty Joustmite, like the Joustmite, is a passive creature, only ever coming out of the ground when Pikmin or a leader is nearby. Once awakened, however, it will turn very aggressive. Like the Joustmite, its main form of attacking is by lashing out its proboscis to eat Pikmin. It keeps its face and front protected while leaving its back open for attack. If a quarter of its health is depleted, it will attempt to take to the skies. If while airborne, it attempts to eat a Pikmin and misses, its proboscis will be stuck in the ground for a few seconds. The Flighty Joustmite regenerates health constantly and can fully heal in two minutes; when its health reaches 90%, it will return to the ground.
