Honeywisps are creatures that float across the air carrying nectar or an egg, and tend to glow and make high pitched cries, appearing and disappearing out of thin air if a Leader passes nearby set places where they can show. A Honeywisp's egg, like any other, may contain nectar, a spray drop, or Mitites. Honeywisps appear only when approached and disappear after a short amount of time. They float a considerable distance above the ground at a slow pace, and they take no note of the presence of leaders or Pikmin, unless attacked, at which point they will feverishly drop their nectar or egg and vanish. They are frequently found grouped in a general area, though not all will be activated at the same time.
- "The floating life-form drifts effortlessly on the winds. Upon death, its physical structure instantly collapses, and as this creature is particularly elusive and difficult to catch, no sample specimens have been acquired as of yet. If we could simply recover a live sample, research on this species would likely proceed more smoothly..."
- "Although the eggs are small, the yolk has a distinctly bold and tangy flavor. Try tossing a few in a pan along with your choice of meat and fresh vegetables and cook up a country scramble!"

They can drop all of the new and old sprays.
Pikmin: The After Years
|The After Years
This Article Contains information about a non-canon game, Pikmin: The After Years, made by Gamefreak75.
Same as Pikmin: Redemption.
Pikmin: New World
They now carry a large fruit around, which may contain either nectar, sprays or Mitites. They do not carry potions though as Sugarslicks are the ones that carry potions and a slight chance of Squitters. They will keep respawning even after they are killed but are also rarer than in the first game. They are quicker too, which Olimar thinks may be due to the fact that they now carry fruit instead of eggs. Their larvae and nest are also seen for the first time in this game.
- "This creature's entire body structure completely collapses upon death. However, a live specimen was recently captured in the wild, allowing scientists to unravel the creature's many secrets. The results where shocking. Its body was found to be ninety-percent nitrogen, which would explain how it can simply materialize out of thin air only to suddenly disappear a second later. Another mind-boggling thing about this creature is the fruit it holds. In the past it held an egg, which it used to transport nectar to its young. This egg/fruit change may be due to its capability to successfully escape predators, which is greatly helped due to the fruit's lightweight."
- "The body itself is uncookable, as it instantly vanishes upon death. However, its amazing fruit is unforgettable. The fruit must be gently sliced into pieces. Then, select your favorite sugary nectar toppings and eat away! Produces amazing jelly, jam, sauce, juice and is always a healthy snack that can be eaten at any time."
- "Not suitable for a pet under any circumstances. It will often simply disappear, never to appear again."
- "The fruit makes a great natural dye but the creature itself is near colorless and completely useless as far as fashion goes. The creature does have an alluring glow about it, but it is impossible to change into clothing because it will vaporize just like the creature itself."
Pikmin: The Pollution
This is not an enemy in this game, but more of an ally. They drop nectar, neswete(honey), berries, eggs, and potions. They can not be killed, as Pikmin slip off them. They appear in all areas and dungeons.
- "The exquisite behavior of this spectacularly nice creature is too hard to observe as it's from a long distance and it's a small creature that emits a very bright light."
- "With emitting a very bright light, flying pretty high, and being a rather small creature, it's hard to observe this creature."
- "Wait for it to drop neswete, nectar, some berries, eggs and potions, and make a nice smoothie to go with some omelets or scrambled eggs and toastbug meat with neswete and nectar. The creature is inedible. Consuming the creature includes the side effect: Unconcious ballet dancing, bowing down to random objects, and trying to swim in mid-air."
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, Honeywisps do not appear suddenly out of thin air, but appear wandering around the map, spawned as soon as you land. Honeywisps have a more notable membrane surrounding them, appearing more jelly-like. They will also give off a dim pink glow in dark areas. Upon encountering the borders of an area, they will make a very wide U-turn, sometimes even going out of bounds. Upon encountering a wall during the U-turn, they will turn back and wander around in a random line again. If it is hit with a Pikmin, it will splatter and drop its egg, which will contain nectar or mitites. If a winged Pikmin latches onto it, the Pikmin will bring the Honeywisp down, where its egg will break to reveal its contents and its body will be left behind without the jelly membrane. The body cannot be salvaged for metal and gives a mere 2 Pikmin seeds.
