The Mighty Flea by YoYoFactory is a very small miniature metal yo-yo with a diameter of only twenty-five millimeters (or one inch), first released in December 2008. It is the smallest production yo-yo in the world. This special project yo-yo is made out of nickel-plated brass instead of aluminum, so that it could weigh closer to other modern yo-yos of the time of its release. It has a mascot in the form of a muscular, anthropomorphic flea in an old-timey weightlifting ensemble, complete with a barbell.

The Mighty Flea also uses a tiny bearing, axle, and Kimu Pads, as well as a shorter, thinner string sometimes referred to as a "Flea Leash". The miniature Kimu Pads used by the Mighty Flea are known as "Flea Bites", and these are made by cutting inner circles on standard-sized Kimu Pads. The bearing measures 4x8x3mm, smaller than even a Size A bearing, but about as small as the Yomega Raider's bearing. The axle is thin, and prone to bending if one drops his/her yo-yo. This prompted YoYoFactory to sell replacement axles separately, along with the specialized response pads.

Later models of the Mighty Flea from 2010 onwards are manufactured out of stainless steel, as well as being made with a more practical Butterfly shape resembling the 888 series, and featuring special Flea-sized CBC Pads.

Very few yo-yos come close to the Mighty Flea's size, such as the Turning Point Tarasqus, the YoYoJam MiniJam, and the Yoyomonster 3Points.
