The Flighty Joustmite is a red flying beetle-like creature in Pikmin 3. They are part of the Unknown Family since their true family is currently unknown, however, the Joustmite seems to be from the same family.
The Flighty Joustmite is really similar to the Joustmite, it only comes out of the ground when a captain or its Pikmin are near it. The main difference the Flighty Joustmite has with the Joustmite is that it is able to fly and will try to impale Pikmin from above when its health is low enough. If the Flighty Joustmite fail an aerial attack, proboscis will be stuck in the ground for a few seconds, which leave it open for an attack. Rock Pikmin are immune to its attacks and make an eventual fight way easier.
