Olimar's journal

At first, this object looked impressive, but closer inspection reveals it's just a cheap statue. In many ways, it reminds me of my father. Hmmm... I probably shouldn't tell him that.

Sales pitch

Once, on an unknown planet, a megalithic civilization flourished, and this is proof of its existence! For hoarders of ancient artifacts, this is a must-have piece! Truly, collectors will crave it! (I do not know if that is true or not, but items in demand fetch higher prices.)

Olimar's Notes (Switch)[edit]

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.
