The enemy reel is a video sequence that plays at the end of Pikmin, after the credits sequence, but only if the player successfully completes the game with all 30 ship parts. It shows brief clips of each enemy in the game, as well as some important plants, and then pauses to give its name and some details. In this way it is similar to the Piklopedia that appears in Pikmin 2.
In New Play Control! Pikmin, the enemy reel plays like in the GameCube version, but takes up less of the screen, and has a flowered animated background behind it. One can tell that the gameplay footage on the clips has not been updated, given that, amongst other things, Captain Olimar uses the GameCube game's cursor. However, the names of the Pearly Clamclamp, Wollywog, Yellow Wollywog, and Wogpole have been updated to Clamshell, Wollyhop, Yellow Wollyhop, and Wolpole for the European version. Additionally in the European version of either port, the enemy reel text remains in English, even when the game's text is set to a different language.
This list shows the enemies in the same order as they appear in the reel on the GameCube version of Pikmin, i.e., with the Swooping Snitchbug out of place. As noted above, in the European port of New Play Control! Pikmin, some enemies were renamed. The Clampshell was moved to its correct alphabetical spot, but the Wolpole was not.
Some object placements and level geometries are different between what is in the reel and the final game. This, in addition to slightly different graphical effects, camera work, and a minor ordering oversight, leads to the conclusion that the reel was created somewhat early during development. The following has been noted to be incorrect in the enemy reel:
The following partial discrepancies can also be noted:
