Badges are a series of achievements that players unlock as they progress and meet certain conditions in Pikmin 3 Deluxe. They can be found under the options menu, either on the main screen or in-game. They are shared across save files, allowing multiple save files to be made to contribute to the total collection. Badges have a large range of requirements, some being unlocked by progressing through the game's main story, while others require using the game's co-op features. Because of this, badges are split into five different categories: Story Badges, Side Story Badges, Mission Badges, Bingo Battle Badges, and Dedicated Badges.

List[edit]

The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 3 Deluxe.

Ranks[edit]

Collecting badges allows for players to rank up. Ranks with badges are purely aesthetic, and provide no gameplay bonuses. Interestingly, there is no Rank for collecting all 50 badges.

  • Beginner: Unlocked at the start.
  • Second Class: Unlocks after getting 10 badges.
  • First Class: Unlocks after getting 20 badges.
  • Special Class: Unlocks after getting 40 badges.

Trivia[edit]

  • Many badges will share the same base shape depending on what the badge is based on. For example, all fruit and juice-related badges will have a floral shape, whereas all boss-related badges will feature a diamond shape.
    • The only badge to have a unique base design is Power Surge, featuring a heptagon.
  • The boss-related badges may be a reference to the game franchise Monster Hunter, where monster's icons are represented with Mayan or Aztec-like designs. Eighting, one of the companies that worked on Pikmin 3 Deluxe, also had worked on Monster Hunter titles in the past.
