Flying Spotted Jellyfloat
The Flying Spotted Jellyfloat (トビマンマン?, lit.: "Flying Manman") is a jellyfish-like enemy in Hey! Pikmin. It is blue with 2 lines of spots (hence the name), and is slightly transparent. There are two yellow eyes sticking out of its head, and a small turquoise orb at the bottom that can crush Pikmin. It is about two times Captain Olimar's height and width, being the smallest member of the jellyfloat family. It appears in only one area, Downpour Thicket.
Flying Spotted Jellyfloats levitate around and make a noise, and fall to the ground when either Olimar or any Pikmin are under it. Pikmin will die if they are under it as it hits the ground. If Olimar defeats a Flying Spotted Jellyfloat, it will drop 2 Sparklium Seeds and another one will soon appear. However, every one that comes afterwards will drop nothing.
It can be assumed that the creature is mostly found in moist environments, because its location is full of dew. It is also found very commonly in this area, although its not found anywhere else.
Hitting a Flying Spotted Jellyfloat with any Pikmin will defeat it. It can only be attacked when it hits the ground, however. The best thing to do is to lure it in by walking directly under, and then throw Pikmin at it. It will only take about 15 hits to kill, rewarding you 2 Sparklium Seeds. It is then advised to leave quickly, as soon another one will appear and can cause trouble.

“Most of the time, it floats peacefully in midair, but it will not hesitate to squish any threats. My wife has a similar "mama bear" quality to her.”
The English name, Flying Spotted Jellyfloat, comes from how it flies very high, higher than any other jellyfloat. The Japanese common name, トビマンマン?, reflects this with トビ? (lit.: "flying"). Like all Hey! Pikmin internal names, it is a Romanization of the creature's Japanese name with no spaces. However, its generator name is
