The centipare family is a family of species that appears in Hey! Pikmin only. So far, this family is made of only one species, the Centipare. Members belong to the chilopoda genus.

Interestingly, this creature, which is probably the younger version of the Adult Centipare, is classified in a different family from its adult version. This is likely a mistake.
