The Adult Centipare (オオムカデトンボ?, lit.: "Big Centipede Dragonfly") is a large insectoid enemy in Hey! Pikmin. Adult Centipares fly forward through the air, waving gently up and down. Both Captain Olimar and Pikmin can ride on the back of one of these creatures. Despite the name, they are not in any way related to the Centipare. This is likely to be a mistake, as it contradicts the logs of both the Centipare and the Adult Centipare.


The Adult Centipare is always flying forward, and never stops or reacts in any other way. Some Adult Centipares fly to the left, but the majority heads right.

The S.S. Dolphin II says the matured ones travel far from home to find their mates. Love that asks so much effort is the most romantic, in my opinion.
