Olimar's Notes (Switch)
“At first, this object looked impressive, but closer inspection reveals it's just a cheap statue. The figure looks like it's a little helpless on its own. Something to think about, I guess...”

- The Worthless Statue's name is a reference to the King's role in chess; the King is arguably one of the weakest pieces on the board, as it has very little mobility and largely relies on the other pieces for protection. Olimar's notes on the Switch rerelease of Pikmin 2 reference this, noting that the piece "looks like it's a little helpless on its own."
- In spite of their names, the Worthless Statue and Priceless Statue are worth the same amount of Pokos.
