I always found this to be one of the few speedbumps in the road of Pikmin 2. It was really annoying when it would mess up your Treasure Gauge, causing you to go and kill it, only to find out that THERE IS NO TREASURE!!!Pikdude 01:43, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Is this an airborne creature? I mean, it has wings, but never really uses them... User:Fly Guy 2

Not unless it's actually capable of keeping itself in the air for extended periods. So no, I wouldn't say so. —Jimbo Jambo

I think it uses the wings for extra liftoff, though.Pikdude200px-Mario you phail.gif 21:12, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

I think it's wings are only used for sound. Man those things freaked the heck outa me the first time I saw them Mcoolister Creeping Chrycooleum.PNG T, C, R

I've always thought of it more as a flea-like thing, perhaps having evolved from something with wings but no longer having any actual use for them. It just jumps really high. GP

I just noticed something. If you let Pikmin go under its control and then kill it while they're under its control they run around screaming like Bulbmin do when you kill the big one.Omepha

Olimar:O_O I'm RedpikminFire.PNGFlamethrower And I approve this message.

By the way, the wings are rubbed together like those of a cricket in order to make sound. Bkarcher97 03:15, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Scientific name[edit]

Mesmeri raiocontra... Mesmeri means mesmerizing, probably, and as for raiocontra, some Latin-like languages have raio and contra, like Portuguese. Raio would be beam, and contra would be counter, in this context. So Mesmerizing Beam Counter would be a likely translation. Where do we go when we want to confirm the scientific names in the Pikmin series? — {EspyoT} 11:31, 24 October 2013 (EDT)
