Spornets fly in a set path, and will only deviate if they spot Pikmin. Once they spot a target, they will drop a purple-colored fuzzball that will fall to the floor. If any Pikmin touch this, or are caught underneath this when it lands, they will be killed. If they lose sight of their target, they will resume their patrol.

Spornets do not drop any Sparklium when killed.

Not many bees prefer isolation, but this one does. It wards off intruders by dropping toxic puffballs on them. I admire its independent spirit, but there must be an easier way to live.

The Spornet’s name is a portmanteau of the words “spore” and “hornet”. The spore part of its name comes from its purple spore-like projectiles, and the hornet part of its name is due to the fact they resemble hornets. Additionally, the family name “Fuzzbuzz” is a portmanteau of fuzz (referring to the Spornet’s fuzzy abdomen), and buzz (referring to the sound a bee, or hornet makes).
