The Skitter Leaf is a common member of the Skitterlings, and first discovered by Captain Olimar on PNF-404. It has evolved from the Pond Skater to adapt to life on land.


The Skitter Leaf is a harmless creature that, when idle and in hiding, looks very much like a small leaf on the ground. This efficient camouflage makes it almost impossible to spot by predators. Much of its anatomy mirrors a leaf: its wings turning into a leaf-patterned cape, its four feet mirroring leaves, and its proboscis looking like the stem to said leaf.

They often are found in small groups, and when one is disturbed and attacked, the whole group comes alive and runs away in a panic, away from the threat. Some will sometimes flip into the air to avoid predation.
