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 is a tad harder to defeat than its counterpart. A simple Pikmin on its back won't do the trick. Aim for its signature crest instead; this will give the same effect as throwing a Pikmin onto the back of a normal Mockiwi, allowing you to bombard it anywhere without worrying about it retaliating. Though it will eventually shake off the Pikmin, requiring a new one to be thrown. If it charges, a Pikmin throw to its head will halt it.

“It's similar to a regular Mockiwi in many ways. I can't see any purpose for the crest beyond a distinctive look. Then again, nobody knows what the company president's hair is for either. Maybe that's why he has less and less of it every year.”
