The loading screen in Story Mode in Pikmin 3 Deluxe when an objective applies to the area being landed in. Here the objective text is split between 2 lines, but objectives with less text only use the top line without changing the position of the other pieces of text, leaving a larger gap for the reflection effect.
An objective on the loading screen in Pikmin 3 Deluxe.

Since this subject has no official name, the name "Objective" is conjectural.

Pikmin 3's Story Mode contains a number of objectives that separate the story into sections based on the current major goal. These objectives are short pieces of text that appear on the day selection menu in Pikmin 3, and additionally on the saved game selection menu, the loading screen, and the radar in Pikmin 3 Deluxe. Objectives apply to a specific day, and each day's objective is saved for a playthrough. Objectives are a way for the game to guide the player towards advancing through the story.


The following is a list of all the distinct objectives in Pikmin 3 Deluxe. Objectives can be different between the menus (the saved game selection menu and the day selection menu), the loading screen, and the radar. The radar and loading screen will only show an objective if it applies to the area the player is in. If the player lands in a different area, the loading screen will show no objective, and the radar will say "Head to [name of area the current objective applies to]!". Note that the objectives appear after the condition is fulfilled, not while the condition is being fulfilled.

The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 3.
Particularly: Add any differences between these Pikmin 3 Deluxe objectives and those in the original Pikmin 3.

  1. ^ Does not appear on menus or the loading screen. The menus say "Exploration Day 1" for day 1.
  2. ^ Only on the radar on the day the Data Glutton is collected.
  3. ^ Does not appear on menus or the loading screen because the day cannot end while in the cave.
  4. ^ Only on the radar on the day the Vehemoth Phosbat is defeated.
  5. ^ Only on the radar on the day the Folded Data Glutton is collected.
  6. ^ This objective appears on the radar in the Twilight River when Louie is collected, but will only appear on menus and the loading screen for the next day if the player has less than 1 bottle of juice, as Louie will not land in the Garden of Hope until the player has at least 1 bottle of juice at the start of the day. If there is a day with the "Find Fruit!" objective (not including the day Louie is collected), the day Louie lands in the Garden of Hope will also have the "Find Fruit!" objective in the menus.
  7. ^ As the loading screen is different on the day Louie lands in the Garden of Hope, this objective is not shown on the loading screen that day, though it will be shown on later days if the Blue Onion has not been lifted yet. This objective will be shown on the menus for the day Louie lands in the Garden of Hope, unless the previous day had the "Find Fruit!" objective.
  8. ^ Does not appear on menus or the loading screen; they will use the "Follow Olimar!" objective.
  9. ^ Only on the radar on the day Louie is collected.
