Blue Pikmin (青ピクミン?) are a blue species of Pikmin that reside on PNF-404. They have the special ability of water resistance. This type of Pikmin is present in all game modes of all Pikmin games, and is the last type to be discovered in the Story mode of Pikmin, Pikmin 2, and Pikmin 3. Besides their coloration, these Pikmin are distinguishable from other Pikmin species by their pink mouths, a trait seen in no other Pikmin species. These mouths are used to take in water, which filters oxygen through gills, giving them the ability to breathe both underwater and on dry land. Producing more Blue Pikmin can be done by carrying pellets or enemy carcasses to the Blue Onion (or the Master Onion), or by throwing other species into a Lapis Lazuli Candypop Bud. As with the other main types of Pikmin, their buds and flowers are white.

The exact location of their gills is not consistently explained in the series, having been said to be on the cheeks[2][3][4], near the cheeks[5], on their mouths[6][7], and not even visible[8].

Traits and abilities[edit]

Blue Pikmin being re-discovered in Pikmin 2.

Only Blue Pikmin and Bulbmin can safely traverse watery areas, as any other type will simply flail around in panic before drowning. Winged Pikmin may move and carry objects above the surface of water bodies, but if thrown into water or if hit by droplets fired by enemies, such as the Skeeterskate, they will not be able to swim. While in water, the Blue Pikmin behave almost the same as they do on land. If they are idle and see a nearby Pikmin drowning in water, they will quickly run to them, pick them up, and throw them to shore. However, they will not rescue Pikmin if they are a certain distance away, so they can't always be relied on. At least in Pikmin 2, this throw works the same as a normal leader throw, which means it can be used for things like crushing a Dwarf Bulborb.[9] In Pikmin 3, this rescuing feature was removed, and Blue Pikmin now also have the ability to swim freely while in pursuit, something necessary to reach some enemies that swim above the ground level.

Blue Pikmin seem to be the most balanced Pikmin species; they have average attack power, durability, mobility, digging speed and throw distance. Blue Pikmin have very little utility outside of water, as most enemies that pose water hazards can easily be defeated without Blue Pikmin. Interestingly, Blue Pikmin are more likely to die than other types in Pikmin 2, as noted here.

In Pikmin[edit]

Discovery[edit]

Finding the first Blue Pikmin in Pikmin .

In Pikmin, Olimar finds the dormant Blue Onion in The Forest Navel, which proves to be a big help in the aquatic area, The Distant Spring. Their Onion is first found near the massive stump holding the Automatic Gear, and is located inside a small pond. Like with the red and yellow Onions, a seed pops out when the Onion wakes up, which Olimar then plucks. The Blue Pikmin's ability to live underwater is immediately demonstrated, since the Onion, the seed, and the new Pikmin appear underwater during this event.

Required uses[edit]

There are glitches and exploits that make it so that Blue Pikmin are not required to collect any ship parts or defeat any enemies. There are two main ones: the object nudging glitch allows one to push ship parts out of the water, while the drowning reset glitch allows Pikmin to travel large bodies of water without drowning. Other minor exploits and glitches include ending the day to make a ship part appear on the closest carrying waypoint in the following day, which can place ship parts in unintended places, and the ability to place a lying Olimar between a treasure and a wall to make him pop up on top of the wall, and going out of bounds.

Recommended uses[edit]

The following ship parts and enemies are intended to be retrievable or beatable only with Blue Pikmin, but can be done without them using exploits.

  • Ship parts
    • Custom-made icon for the Positron Generator, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Positron Generator: The ship is inside a Pearly Clamclamp on a beach, and defeating the enemy will drop the ship part in the water. But by using small islands on the beach, it is possible to attack the Pearly Clamclamp using Red or Yellow Pikmin, and the ship part can then be pushed out of the water with the object nudging glitch.[10]
    • Custom-made icon for the Radiation Canopy, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Radiation Canopy: The path that Olimar needs to cross to reach this part is blocked by a gate inside a body of water. However, with precise throws, it's possible to throw bomb-rock Yellow Pikmin to the top of the gate, and destroy it without needing Blue Pikmin.
    • Custom-made icon for the Geiger Counter, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Geiger Counter: In order to reach the Burrowing Snagret that holds the ship part, a cardboard box must be pushed out of the way, and Blue Pikmin need to be guided from a puddle to the backside of the box. However, it is possible to use other Pikmin to throw the box, either with long throws or by throwing them to the top of the box and guiding them to the back.
    • Custom-made icon for the Libra and Sagittarius, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Sagittarius: Two bridges must be built to reach the part, but one of them can only be reached by tossing Pikmin while in a large pond. Luckily, there is a small protrusion on the island that allows non-Blue Pikmin to shore on, and from there, they can be thrown at the bridge. To reach the bit of land, the Pikmin can just swim towards it from the mainland.
    • Custom-made icon for the Analog Computer, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Analog Computer: This ship part is submerged in water, although it can be taken out using the object nudging glitch.
    • Custom-made icon for the Ionium Jets, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Number 1 Ionium Jet: This ship part is submerged in water. It can be pushed out with the object nudging glitch, but it is too resistant to the pushes to do so effectively. By luring a Male Sheargrub and using its corpse or a pellet, Olimar can push the pellet, which in turn pushes the ship part. By bringing it close to the bodies of water in the higher levels and ending the day, it is possible for the Ionium Jet to appear in the next body of water by the next day. Eventually, the ship part can be brought to land.[11]
    • Custom-made icon for the Libra and Sagittarius, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Libra: Blue Pikmin are needed to activate the geyser that gives Olimar access to the first high ledge. However, it is possible to have other Pikmin types open the geyser; if they are guided towards it, they might land one or two hits before starting their drowning sequence. They can just be called back, and the process can be repeated until the geyser is enabled.[12] Alternatively, one can use a pellet from a Shearwig to clip to the railing wall, and from there, walk up to the ship part and push it down.[13]
    • Custom-made icon for the Anti-Dioxin Filter, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Anti-Dioxin Filter: The part is on a large pool of water, but with the object nudging glitch, it is possible to take it out without Blue Pikmin. Wollywog corpses can be used to help push the part, and a Breadbug dragging a Male Sheargrub corpse can be used to push the part mostly onto dry land.[14]
    • Custom-made icon for the Interstellar Radio, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Interstellar Radio: The Puffy Blowhog containing this ship part is over water and the path to carry the ship part back to the ship goes through the large lake of water. By going out of bounds on the south using the Massage Machine, and attacking the Blowhog from dry land, and by nudging the ship part out of the water, it can be collected.[15]
    • Custom-made icon for the Repair-type Bolt, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Repair-type Bolt: This part is on top of a ledge. When it falls off, it will almost immediately land in the water. It can be nudged to dry land, however.[15]
    • Custom-made icon for the Chronos Reactor, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Chronos Reactor: This part is located a long way across a pool of water. As part of the puzzle, the Blue Pikmin carrying this part must first become Yellow Pikmin. By using the Spotty Bulbear near the maze, Olimar can be pushed to the ledges out of bounds, and from there, lure a Swooping Snitchbug near where the Chronos Reactor is. Its corpse or pellets can be used to bring Olimar to the ship part's ledge, where it can then be pushed all the way out of the water section of the area and onto regular dry land.[16]
    • Custom-made icon for the Ionium Jets, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Number 2 Ionium Jet: This part is on top of a tall ledge that opens into water. By bringing Pikmin to the ship part's shore using the drowning reset glitch, it's possible to bring enough Pikmin to take the part out of the ledge. From there, it can be pushed to near the Pilot's Seat section, which will make it appear right next to the Pilot's Seat the next day. Since it takes too long to push normally, a Water Dumple corpse must be pushed instead, which in turn pushes the Ionium Jet.[17]
    • Custom-made icon for the Gluon Drive, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Gluon Drive: This part is opposite a wide river, and a bridge must be built from the other side. However, Pikmin can be tossed from the Zirconium Rotor's location.
    • Custom-made icon for the Zirconium Rotor, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Zirconium Rotor: This part is behind a gate that is difficult to destroy without Blue Pikmin, but it can be done without them.
    • Custom-made icon for the Massage Machine, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Massage Machine: This part is across a large lake, with the bridge that must be built located on the opposite shore. However, by throwing Red Pikmin or Yellow Pikmin to the water and whistling them to the other shore, it is possible to have them build the bridge.[15]
    • Custom-made icon for the Secret Safe, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Secret Safe: The island with the bridges is in the middle of the lake, meaning Blue Pikmin must traverse it to reach it. That said, it is not too hard to guide Red or Yellow Pikmin to the island, by whistling them to it while they're drowning.
  • Enemies
    • Custom-made icon for the Goolix, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Goolix: Only Blue Pikmin can touch its body, but it's still possible to defeat the creature without them by throwing Pikmin when it stretches.

In Pikmin 2[edit]

Discovery[edit]

In Pikmin 2, 5 Blue Pikmin are found in the Awakening Wood. This is first hinted at when the Onion stops spitting out seeds, but there are only a reported 95 out 100 Pikmin on the field. They are found chasing a few Wogpoles beyond an electric gate guarded by a Cloaking Burrow-nit at the north of the map. To obtain them, Olimar and Louie break down the gate with the Yellow Pikmin, and proceed to whistle them to take them under their command. Once again, their underwater prowesses are instantly noticeable, since they are found in a large lake.

Required uses[edit]

Clogs are used to restrict certain areas to Blue Pikmin.

Blue Pikmin are required to collect these treasures or enter these caves, and there are no glitches or exploits that allow other Pikmin types to do so.

Recommended uses[edit]

Blue Pikmin are recommended for these treasures, caves, or enemies, though these tasks can be done without the type by using glitches or exploits.

  • Treasures
    • Treasure Hoard icon for the Air Brake. Texture found in /user/Matoba/resulttex/us/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/badminton/texture.bti. Air Brake: Only Blue Pikmin can use the seesaw blocks that are underwater. With long throws and/or the high ledge glitch, Yellow or Purple Pikmin can access the ledge the treasure is on and carry it back safely.
    • Treasure Hoard icon for the Decorative Goo. Texture found in /user/Matoba/resulttex/us/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/kan/texture.bti. Decorative Goo: The path to carry the treasure back to the ship goes through water, but by using a certain glitch[19], it's possible for treasures to be carried in water with non-Blue Pikmin during cutscenes. Another glitch called charging also helps minimize how long the treasure is underwater for, meaning the treasure can be carried through the water in the duration of just one cutscene.
    • Treasure Hoard icon for the Onion Replica. Texture found in /user/Matoba/resulttex/us/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/momiji_kare/texture.bti. Onion Replica: Same as the Decorative Goo.
    • Treasure Hoard icon for the Optical Illustration. Texture found in /user/Matoba/resulttex/us/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/denchi_2_red/texture.bti. Optical Illustration (US) / Treasure Hoard icon for the Abstract Masterpiece. Texture found in /user/Matoba/resulttex/pal/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/denchi_2_red/texture.bti. Abstract Masterpiece (Europe): Same as the Decorative Goo.
    • Treasure Hoard icon for the Massage Girdle. Texture found in /user/Matoba/resulttex/us/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/nut_l/texture.bti. Massage Girdle: Same as the Decorative Goo.
  • Enemies
    • Piklopedia icon for the Wogpole. Texture found in /user/Yamashita/enemytex/arc.szs/rarc/tmp/tadpole/texture.bti. Wogpole: Although this aquatic enemy can jump onto land and become vulnerable, the chances of this happening are quite slim.
  • Caves
    • None
  • Other
    • The clog near the landing site of the Awakening Wood can be destroyed with any type of Pikmin by throwing them at a specific spot near the center of the clog. They will be able to damage it before slipping off and entering the water, which means they can slowly but surely destroy it.[20]
    • In order to access the southern part of the Wistful Wild, an underwater clog must be taken down. The only way to bring things back to the landing site is to build the bridge on the other side of a lake; provided the player has destroyed the clog, they can go around and build it with any Pikmin type, but if not, Blue Pikmin will have to cross the lake and build it.

In Pikmin 3[edit]

Discovery[edit]

The Blue Onion activating in Pikmin 3.

In Pikmin 3, the Blue Onion is found in the Garden of Hope, but can only be found after Louie has ran away from the Koppaites after being rescued in the Twilight River. The explorers chase after him, but instead find an Onion trapped under a Flukeweed. From this, the Blue Onion is found, and after it ejects a seed that is then plucked, the explorers discover the Blue Pikmin, which prove to be essential in finding Louie again. As with the previous games, the Blue Pikmin are instantly shown to be able to withstand being underwater, since the Onion, seed, and newly-plucked Pikmin are underwater.

Required uses[edit]

Blue Pikmin are required to collect these fruits or defeat these enemies, and there are no glitches or exploits that allow other Pikmin types to do so.

Near-required uses[edit]

Blue Pikmin are intended to be used to collect these fruits, but through the use of glitches, exploits, or tricks, the fruits can be collected without Blue Pikmin.

  • Fruit File icon for the Scaly Custard. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Scaly Custard (Garden of Hope): The fruit is within a Peckish Aristocrab on an area of land that can only be reached by building a pot-shaped bridge with some of its fragments underwater. However, using sequence-breaking techniques, it is possible to bypass the building of this bridge and collect the fruit with Winged Pikmin.
  • Fruit File icon for the Searing Acidshock. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Searing Acidshock (Garden of Hope, inside the crystal): Normally, a bridge must be built using fragments, some of which are underwater, but it is possible to build half the bridge and throw Rock Pikmin and Winged Pikmin across the gap, allowing the crystal to be broken and the fruit to be carried back.
  • The Fruit File icon for the Wayward Moon. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Wayward Moon: Like with the Scaly Custard above, a pot-shaped bridge with some of its fragments underwater must be built to access the boss that contains the fruit normally, but sequence-breaking techniques can be used to bypass the building of this bridge and collect the fruit with Winged Pikmin. (Note that at least 1 Blue Pikmin must be plucked to remove an invisible wall before the boss, but that Pikmin doesn't have to be used after that.)

Recommended uses[edit]

Blue Pikmin are recommended to collect these fruits or defeat these enemies, though they can be done with other types.

  • Fruits
    • The Fruit File icon of the Cupid's Grenade. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Cupid's Grenade (Tropical Wilds): The fruit is on a small island surrounded by water. It is possible to lock onto the fruit with Winged Pikmin and charge them on, but it is easier to throw a Blue Pikmin onto it.
    • Fruit File icon for the Face Wrinkler. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Face Wrinkler (Distant Tundra): This fruit can be collected with Blue Pikmin or Winged Pikmin, and there is not much difference between the 2 in collecting this fruit.
    • The Fruit File icon for the Juicy Gaggle. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Juicy Gaggle (Twilight River, group of 3): It is possible to get the fruits with Winged Pikmin, but using Blue Pikmin will not require defeating the Arachnode.
    • Fruit File icon for the Mock Bottom. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Mock Bottom: This fruit is intended to be carried with Blue Pikmin into a pool of water. It is possible to charge Winged Pikmin onto it, but this can be difficult.
    • Fruit File icon for the Searing Acidshock. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Searing Acidshock (Garden of Hope, inside the Bug-Eyed Crawmad): Blue Pikmin and Winged Pikmin are the only types capable of accessing this mini-boss on an island, and while it can be defeated with just Winged Pikmin, Blue Pikmin are better for combat.
    • The Fruit File icon for the Slapstick Crescent. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Slapstick Crescent: Only Blue Pikmin and Winged Pikmin can dig out and carry this fruit, and Blue Pikmin are faster at digging. Alternatively, a bomb rock can be used to unearth the fruit.
    • Fruit File icon for the Stellar Extrusion. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Stellar Extrusion (Distant Tundra): The fruit is held by a Shaggy Long Legs which frequently steps over water. Blue Pikmin are recommend to avoid Pikmin losses from the water. In addition, it's possible for the fruit to drop in positions where only Blue Pikmin can retrieve it, so they are also recommended for that reason.
    • The Fruit File icon for the Zest Bomb. Ripped from a screenshot using GIMP, and with an outline added on top, so the quality is subjective. Zest Bomb (Tropical Wilds): This fruit is held by a Peckish Aristocrab that normally walks in a pool of water. It is possible to defeat the enemy such that it drops the fruit over land, however.
  • Enemies
    • Custom-made icon for the Bug-eyed Crawmad, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Bug-Eyed Crawmad: Both instances of this miniboss in Story mode appear near water, so Blue Pikmin are useful to avoid Pikmin deaths.
    • Custom-made icon for the Plasm Wraith, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Plasm Wraith: Some of this boss's Elemental Plasms are made of water, and these are the only elemental plasms that can only be destroyed with their intended Pikmin type. It is possible to ignore them though.
    • Custom-made icon for the Quaggled Mireclops, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Quaggled Mireclops: When it stomps its feet, it makes puddles of water. Using Blue Pikmin to attack the feet is recommended, as they cannot drown in the puddles of water.
    • Custom-made icon for the Skeeterskate, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Skeeterskate: Skeeterskates can be killed by any Pikmin type, but non-Blue Pikmin will fall in the water and start to drown right after.
    • Custom-made icon for the Water Dumple, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Water Dumple: Although this underwater enemy can go onto land, the chances of this happening are quite low.
    • Custom-made icon for the Wogpole, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Wogpole: Although this underwater enemy can jump onto land and become vulnerable, the chances of this happening are quite slim.
    • Custom-made icon for the Watery Blowhog, based on the Piklopedia icons. This was made by applying a border to the concept art image. Watery Blowhog: This enemy shoots bubbles of water, but can be defeated by any type of Pikmin.

In Hey! Pikmin[edit]

Discovery[edit]

The first appearance of Blue Pikmin in Hey! Pikmin.

In Hey! Pikmin, Blue Pikmin are first found in Foaming Lake, in the second sector, Verdant Waterfront. Whilst Olimar is swimming in the lake a group of Blue Pikmin are chased into a pile of moss by a Puckering Blinnow. Upon whistling at them the Blue Pikmin join Olimar and are used for the majority of each water area from then on, breaking underwater walls and allowing him to progress. After the area is complete they join the Pikmin Park like any other Pikmin type.

Uses[edit]

Hey! Pikmin does not let players choose which types to bring to a task, and while many treasures require Blue Pikmin to collect, Blue Pikmin will always be present when this is the case.

In the Pikmin Park, plant-type clutter can only be destroyed by Blue Pikmin.

Treasures in areas with Blue Pikmin only
Treasures in areas with multiple Pikmin types
The Scoot-Over Bench in Below the Ice.

Note that indirect uses (using Blue Pikmin to access a later part of the area that contains a treasure that doesn't require Blue Pikmin) don't count.

Notes

Olimar's voyage log

Deep in the cave I discovered in the forest, I encountered blue Pikmin. These blue fellows have something resembling gills on their cheeks, and they appear to be amphibious, surviving both in water and on land. The wonders of nature never cease to stun me, even in this alien land!

In the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

The current SmashWiki logo.

This article or section is a short summary on Pikmin as fighters.
SmashWiki features more in-depth content.

Blue Pikmin appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as kinds of Pikmin that Olimar can pull from the ground via Pikmin Pluck – his standard special move – as well as trophies. They are the only Pikmin that don't drown in water, and are more durable than other types of Pikmin (besides Purple Pikmin). They also throw opponents the farthest with Olimar's grab attack. They can withstand water moves like Mario's F.L.U.D.D. or Squirtle's water gun. In Brawl, Olimar is most likely to pull up a Blue Pikmin if he is on a water-based surface, such as a cloud or ice.

Blue Pikmin also have a sticker of them in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Brawl trophy[edit]

The Blue Pikmin trophy from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Description:

A type of Pikmin, which are curious creatures that follow and obey the person who picks them. If you take advantage of this trait, you can get them to help Capt. Olimar and Louie. The blue Pikmin are at home in water and cannot drown. Need to retrieve an object underwater or cross a water hazard to disarm a trap? Blue Pikmin are just the allies you need.

  8. ^ This variety of Pikmin thrives in the water. I can't see gills on them, but they must be there. (Probably?) My suit ensures I can get by in the water too, but that's not true of the rest of the Pikmin, so I need to be careful. – Olimar in the Pikmin Log entry for Blue Pikmin
