- This article is about the creature. For the biological family, see Centipare family.
Centipares (ムカデトンボ?, lit.: "Centipede Dragonfly") are docile creatures in Hey! Pikmin that resemble dragonflies. They have skinny pink bodies with light-blue eyes, and their length is about four times that of Captain Olimar. They float through the air in a fixed pattern, and Olimar and Pikmin can land on top of one to ride on its back. By staying on one for a while, the player can cover new ground. Despite the name, they are technically not at all related to Adult Centipares, as indicated by their different family, genus, and species. However, this is likely a mistake, as Centipares are directly said by Olimar to be children in their log, lining up with Adult Centipares being the adult forms.
This creature barely does anything; it only acts as an invincible moving platform, flying along a set path.

- Scourge of the Skies: This is the only area of the game where Centipares are found. They are very common here, and are used to get past poisonous water and reach new areas.

Since it only acts as a platform, the creature is indestructible and is essential to progressing forward. Still, one note is to avoid jetpacking onto or off of Centipares, as it's difficult to catch up with them with this slower method of travel, and it can easily result in Olimar dropping into the poison below. If Olimar jetpacks off, the Centipare will stop automatically moving him, so you should manually fly in the same direction as the Centipare in such a case.
