The S.S. Dolphin (SS Dolphin in the European version of Pikmin 3[1]) is the delivery ship that belongs to Captain Olimar in the first Pikmin game. It is wrecked when it collides with a comet during a flight to a vacation spot and thirty of its pieces are end up scattered around the five areas of the Pikmin planet; Pikmin involves the collection of these using the Pikmin.

When Olimar returns to Hocotate with a fixed ship at the start of Pikmin 2, the S.S. Dolphin is sold to help pay the Hocotate Freight company's enormous debt. It's then replaced by the Hocotate ship.

In Pikmin, if the player presses GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png while Olimar is on top of the ship's ring of light, his spacesuit's health will be fully replenished, and he will comment on the number of parts he has left to recover. This cannot be done after the sunset warning timer reaches the number 4.

Known parts[edit]

The 30 ship parts in the game.

The ship has a total of thirty known parts. Their retrieval is necessary in order to complete the game, and they can be found in all areas. Five of the parts are optional.

Trivia[edit]

To do: Should we mention the Dolphin's involvement in Pikmin 3's plot? Isn't it too much of a spoiler?
Care to do so?

  1. Curse this stupid ship! It may once have been a top-of-the-line vessel, but the way it criticises my piloting skills really gets on my nerves. I can't wait to get my beloved old SS Dolphin back! I need to find plenty of valuable treasure and pay that debt off as soon as possible!
