The Crested Mockiwi (トサカマッキー?, lit.: "Crest Makkī") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It is a more aggressive variant of a Mockiwi, that is purple in color and has a crest of pink feathers on its forehead.
The Crested Mockiwi is similar to the standard Mockiwi, but has more health and is faster. It also has a unique attack, where it roars and charges towards the player and Pikmin.
The Crested Mockiwi can be defeated in the same way as all Mockiwis can be; by throwing Pikmin onto its back. If it charges, a Pikmin throw to its head will halt it. You can also throw the Pikmin onto its hair and they will hold on for a couple of shakes.
The Crested Mockiwi drops 2 Sparklium when killed.

The "Crested" refers to the large crest on its upper body, of which the normal Mockiwi does not have.
