The Analog Computer is a ship part for the S.S. Dolphin in Pikmin. This part is found in a puddle near some fire geysers in The Forest Navel. It works with a ship's regular computer to make it smarter and have emotional complexity, making it quick to anger with an attitude. It holds the kind of vague data that falls outside of the ones and zeros range. Because Olimar says this, many players mistake this piece for an optional ship part, but it is mandatory. Captain Olimar compares this part to his boss. After being collected, this part does not change the S.S. Dolphin's appearance.

Collecting the part[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

The Analog Computer is located to the far end of the trail where the Libra is found. Blue Pikmin are needed to get it out of the puddle and Red Pikmin to take it through the fire geysers. It is possible to collect this part with only 20 Pikmin due to the Crimson Candypop Bud on the plateau near the ship part, but it is not recommended while speed running. Sometimes an Iridescent Flint Beetle can appear from under it when it is lifted.

Notes

Olimar's monologs

I've found my Analog Computer!

This computer conveys the kind of vague data that falls outside the range of ones and zeros. Actually, to be honest, it's a little bit too vague, so it isn't very helpful.


This strengthens the outward emotions of the Dolphin's computer. While it does make the computer smart, it also makes it quick to anger. It's just like my boss.

Trivia[edit]

  • In real life, an analog computer is a form of computer which utilizes continuously-changeable aspects of physical phenomena to model out problems.
  • The Analog Computer can be seen in the enemy reel while showing the Wollywogs. However, it is where the Anti-Dioxin Filter is found. It should be impossible for the part to get there in game, suggesting in an earlier version of the game, that the Analog Computer was supposed to be there.
  • In the Japanese version, Olimar compares the analog computer to his wife.[source needed]
  • The appearance of the Analog Computer is similar to the arcade machine Computer Space.
