Olimar amiibo[edit]

The Olimar amiibo is part of the sixth (seventh in Europe) wave of the Super Smash Bros. series of amiibo. It is scheduled for a September release date along with Zero Suit Samus, Bowser Junior, Ganondorf, and Doctor Mario in North America, and alongside Dr. Mario and Bowser Jr. in Europe. So far, the Olimar amiibo is only confirmed to be compatible with two games: Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, and Mario Kart 8. In Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, the Olimar amiibo will act as a Figure Player just as all the other Super Smash Bros. series amiibo, and will save data to the amiibo's chip. In Mario Kart 8, the amiibo will unlock an Olimar styled suit for the Mii character. It will not save data to the amiibo, and can be used alongside Super Smash Bros.

e-cards[edit]

Pikmin e-reader series 1.

There are 6 types of Pikmin e-cards, which are the original three Pikmin types and their Onions. The three color groups (Red, Yellow, and Blue) unlock puzzle games buried deep in the recesses of Pikmin 2, by using Nintendo's Pikmin 2 puzzle e-cards (which require the use of an e-Reader).

The three games are as follows:

  • Pikmin Plucking: The player must pluck every Pikmin from the ground.
  • Pikmin Parts: The player controls the Pikmin by moving them in the same direction, and must try to get them into the goal.
  • Pikmin Path: The player moves panels around to create a path for the Pikmin so that they can reach a goal.

Jakk's Pacific Pikmin figurines[edit]

Jakk's Pacific released two new Pikmin figures as part of the 3rd Legend of Zelda series of World of Nintendo Mini Figures in April 6th, 2015. The figures consist of Olimar and a Red Pikmin. Both figures are 2.5 inches tall. Text is written on the back of each box describing each character respectively. Each box also shows all of the characters in the series, the others being Mario, Luigi, Link, Ganondorf, Tetra, and Cranky Kong. These figures are not based off of Pikmin 3 exclusively – the image on the back of the Red Pikmin box shows a Red Pikmin with a bud as it appears in Pikmin 3, however the image of Olimar shows him as he would look in Pikmin and Pikmin 2. This is odd, because the figure itself has Olimar's whistle and the extra suit buttons, which he did not obtain until the third game.

Box text[edit]

Olimar
The main character of the game Pikmin. Captain Olimar crash lands on a mysterious planet, he must gather the pieces of his broken ship but the atmosphere of the planet is poisonous to Olimar. As a result, he has to enlist the help of the native Pikmin.
Red Pikmin
A type of Pikmin-which are odd beings who grow like plants yet are as mobile as animals. Red ones are heat and fire resistant and are strong attackers, which makes them valuable when facing dangerous does. Purple Pikmin are also tough fighters, but since it's difficult to increase their numbers, red Pikmin are easier to manage. Red Pikmin have distinct pointed noses.

Agatsuma Pikmin figurines[edit]

This article or section needs to be cleaned up, either its format or general style.
Notes: This is confusing to read.

Agatsuma has released three volumes of Pikmin toys to promote Pikmin 2. They were only released in Japan, and were produced in randomly arranged sets.

Volume one[edit]

The first of the three volumes. These contain three sets of three Pikmin (Red, Yellow, or Blue) with Olimar, Louie, or the President included. There are three sets with Red, White, and Purple Pikmin in different stages. These include a Dwarf Red Bulborbs in each set. There are also three sets with five Pikmin each, in different stages. Oddly, there are nine red Pikmin, and six of every other type. The Hocotatians used in this volume are also used in volume three. The rare special figurine for this one is a Red Bulborb. The Pikmin in this volume are the same as the ones used in volume two. The figures are not made of the same material that is used in series 3.

Volume two[edit]

Volume two has six of each Pikmin (two leaf, two bud, two flower), a Wogpole, and a Yellow Wollywog. Another set has the Dwarf Orange Bulborb, Dwarf Red Bulborb, and Snow Bulborb. The set of three Purples comes with a Bulborb Larva. The set of three Whites comes with a Breadbug. The Red, Yellow, and Blue Pikmin sets come with three different stages of Bulbmin. Two secret figures are the regular ship and its golden variant. The figurines are the same as in volume one, except instead of three Dwarf Red Bulborbs, there are many different creatures. These figurines are of the same material as series 1.

Volume three[edit]

The three sets that contain three red, blue, or yellow Pikmin come with a Pellet Posy of the same color, instead of a Bulbmin as in volume two, or a Dwarf Red Bulborb as in volume one. As always, the set of five flower, bud, or leaf Pikmin doesn't come with anything. Purples and Whites come with a Fiery Blowhog or a Watery Blowhog. A set of Olimar, Louie, and President is also available; they are the same as the set from volume one and two. The three secret items are the Onions. This volume looks much more organic than volumes 1 or 2.

Plush toys[edit]

Pikmin plushies were also released in 2004. The first five Pikmin types were available with either a flower, bud, or leaf. Captain Olimar, Louie, and a Red Bulborb were also available as plushies.

Every plush except Olimar and Louie have been re-released in Japan for Pikmin 3. Olimar and Louie are currently the rarest of the group. In the summer of 2013, a new 5 inch Pikmin set was released in Japan by Sanei. Three new storage Pikmin are part of this set. This includes a Red Pikmin with a box, a Blue Pikmin with a mug, and a Yellow Pikmin with a cup.

The Pikmin are each about 3 inches tall, and consist of a Red, Yellow, or Blue Pikmin, each with either a leaf, bud, or flower, totaling to 9 different variants.
