Brittany (ブリトニー?) is one of the three leaders in Pikmin 3. She visits PNF-404, along with Alph and her captain, Charlie in search of food for the hungry planet of Koppai. She is a botanist, who is responsible of keeping track of the fruit found on the planet and juices produced by the crew. She is the first playable female character in the Pikmin series.
Brittany has a pointed nose, small black eyes, and shoulder-length pink hair. She wears glasses with dark red frames, a bulky space suit with a transparent helmet, whistle, and an antenna. Her gloves and boots are the same shade of pink as her hair, as is the light atop her helmet's antenna. Differentiating her from all other leaders are some feminine touches: her suit ends in a small skirt highlighted in pink, and a gap in the sole of her boots gives the impression of a modest heel.
In prerelease versions, both her spacesuit and antenna-light were colored yellow.
Brittany may be a bit dishonest and gluttonous, as Alph suspects that she tends to take slightly more than her share of juice. She is close to her family, as seen in the Fruit Files where she says she misses her family and frequently relates fruit to her Aunt Bea. She also seems to have a liking for all things cute, particularly the Pikmin and some of the fruit she encounters. She appears to dislike Charlie, and appears to like Alph, sometimes calling him "Alphie" in an affectionate way.
