The Bowsprit (バウスプリット?, lit.: "Bowsprit") is a ship part in Pikmin. It is the "face" of the Dolphin, designed by Captain Olimar, and gives the Dolphin its sleek shape. It can be found a bit to the East of where the Yellow Onion is discovered in Pikmin 2. Once recovered, it is installed on its rightful place, as the nose of the Dolphin.

Collecting the part[edit]

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

Getting it requires many steps. First, defeat all Bulbears and Puffy Blowhogs that will be in the way back to the ship. There are two paths to get to it: either cross the fire geysers near the Armored Cannon Beetle or take the safe route near the landing site by building the twig and unplugging the geyser. Then defeat the Beetle and retrieve the part. Build the bridge and destroy the gate so Red Pikmin can carry it back to the Dolphin, defeating the Shearwigs along the way.


Olimar's monologs

I've discovered the Bowsprit!

With this piece installed, my ship should regain some of its sleek shape.

The so-called face of the Dolphin. In point of fact, I designed it.



  • The antenna of the Bowsprit is only partially attached when not on the S.S. Dolphin.
  • A bowsprit in real life is a pole that extends forward of a ship from the prow of the vessel.
  • It resembles a Poké Ball when viewed from the top.
