Collin is a member of the Rescue Corps in Pikmin 4. The communications operator of the group, he helps the player character during their adventure by providing various comments and updates. He is the first member of the Rescue Corps found in the tutorial (apart from Oatchi), being found just behind a potted plant near to where the player character first lands. In the Rescue Command Post, talking to Collin lets the player select an area to explore for the day. Although Collin is not playable in the main story, the first player can choose to play as him in Dandori Battle mode; the same applies to Shepherd, the team's captain.

Personality and appearance[edit]

Collin has a square head with a pointy nose, large green eyes, and large rosy cheeks. His mouth is similar to that of the President. He has close-cut gray hair with a spiraling tuft at the top.

Collin is seemingly the most level-headed and grounded character of the Rescue Corps, occasionally talking Shepherd and Yonny out of their ideas when they start becoming extreme or nonsensical. Hard-working and equipped with a variety of skills, Collin takes pride in his job with an eagerness to work on machines. He is known by Shepherd to be sentimental, using a wireless transceiver passed down to him by his grandfather; even when it breaks, he opts to repair the transceiver instead of replacing it.


In his youth, Collin spent most of his free time tinkering with machines. Later on, he worked a variety of oddjobs to pay for college which included cleaning the outer walls of the colony, doing ship construction, and collecting space junk, all of which Collin considers easy compared to being a comms operator. Even so, Shepherd notes Collin was already a highly skilled operator prior to joining the corps.
