White Pikmin are considerably smaller than all the other types of Pikmin. They have red, possibly compound eyes devoid of pupils that allow them to locate treasures that are completely buried underground, which is demonstrated shortly after discovering them in the White Flower Garden. Due to their small size, they are the fastest of all Pikmin, such that, when flowered, they run at least as quickly as Captains equipped with the Rush Boots.
White Pikmin are extremely toxic, immediately harming and often killing any predator that eats them, although this does not benefit the Pikmin that was eaten as they perished to release the poison. Because they are acclimated to the poison in their bodies, White Pikmin are immune to all outside sources of poison. This allows them to destroy poison pipes and walk through poisonous emissions unharmed. Interestingly, these Pikmin attack and down Pellet Posies faster than either Yellow Pikmin or Blue Pikmin. Each attack does the same amount of damage, but the White Pikmin attack much faster. White Pikmins' extremities are tinged with purple, hinting at the potent poison they contain.
