A 50 Pikmin challenge is a playthrough of Pikmin with only 50 Pikmin, the minimum possible number. Like the 6 day run or the zero death challenge, it is recommended that players have completed the game at least once before attempting, due to its challenging nature.

The Gluon Drive requires the most Pikmin to carry – a minimum of 50 Pikmin. This means that the main game is entirely beatable with only 50 Pikmin ever raised. The minimum amount of time this has ever been completed is in 8 days. This was done by using a combination of tricks to collect the Positron Generator on day 2. That trip enabled the growth of Red Pikmin in preparation for day 3, in which The Forest of Hope was fully completed in 1 day.[1] The 9 day challenge is far more common due to its relative ease compared to the 8 day run. If the player wishes to only collect the 25 required ship parts, 50 Pikmin are still required but the player must wait out all 30 days for the game to end. Due to the Secret Safe weighing 85 on the Japanese version, this challenge does not apply for that game version.
