Mitites are parasitic, spider-like enemies found in Pikmin 2. They live inside the eggs of other organisms, and so can occasionally be found inside Eggs or Honeywisp sacs, instead of Nectar. They may also emerge from the ground in Caves when you walk over certain areas, just like Sheargrubs. When they are disturbed, the Mitites will scurry out and send nearby Pikmin into a panic. Although this doesn't harm you or your Pikmin directly, they may encounter a Hazard or enemy and be killed. Panicked Pikmin can only be called after waiting a few seconds, by which time the Mitites will have likely already burrowed back into the ground. If you are fast enough, you may be able to toss a Pikmin onto the back of a Mitite, which will then drop Nectar. If you throw a Purple Pikmin, all Mitites near will be hit when it lands.
 Olimar's Notes
"These parasitic enemies feed on eggs. Upon reaching maturity, they excrete a special pheromone that attracts females of a certain species, enticing these females to swallow the Mitites whole (Pikmin, however, seem to dislike the scent). After entering the female's body, the Mitites lay their own eggs inside the host's eggs just prior to the host spawning."
 Louie's Notes
"Flash fry with garlic and red chilis in a hot pan, then sprinkle with Gorgonzola. Some dinner guests might find the legs unappealing, so it's best to remove them before serving."
